It Hardly Ever Rains!


London 2012 leaders claim it does not matter that the Olympic Stadium roof does not cover everyone - because it hardly ever rains in the capital.

Only 40% of the stadium will be under cover but Mayor of London Boris Johnson claimed it was dry 94% of the time.

Olympic minister Tessa Jowell said: "In the unlikely event that, at some point it rains, people are used to pulling on raincoats in this country."

  1. I have suspected for a long time that politicians don't live in the real world, it would appear that some don't even live in this country.....Hardly ever rains in the capital?....You couldn't make it up.
