The white elephant of the London Olympics, ie the stadium, will cost the hard pressed British taxpayer a further £2M on top of the current Olympics "budget" of £12BN.
It seems that the stadium is not up to Premier League standards, and that the pitch will need to be ripped up (it doesn't have under-soil heating) after the games and replaced at a cost of £2M.
Locog et al keep banging on about the "legacy" of the games.
For sure there will be a legacy, specifically:
- one very large white elephant (the stadium), and
- a large bill (currently estimated at around £12BN plus)
