We Pay £50k per Tourist.
Studies have shown that an estimated 294,000 tourists were likely to visit London from overseas during the Games period.
Is that right? If we believe that the Games will only cost us £9billion, a naive charming belief on par with that of the tooth fairy, then that is over £30,000 a visitor. And they are displacing more tourists who would have come anyway.
Is it really as mad as that?
