Romney’s Insight Spot On!

Russ Steele

Our local left and the lefty press in UK attacked Romney for suggesting that London was not really ready for the Olympics, there were still things to be done.  Now there is visible evidence he was correct. Despite tickets for the events being sold out, television images revealed scores of empty seats at the swimming, dressage, volleyball and tennis.

Now we learn that prompter are having army troops fill the empty seats that may have been give to corporations and VIPs that chose not to come, thus deny seats to traveler who came to London to see the Olympics. There were also fears last week that long queues and transport problems would leave many ticket holders unable to get to their seats in times to watch the main events.

Not prepared?

    Add to that the fact that the security company didn’t have the people to provide proper security. We have had our share of problems with the Olympics as well but in our case they were mostly due to money. The LA Olympics worked for two reasons. The first is much of what was needed was already in place as well as Hollywood to provide the entertainment. The second is many people took vacation and trucks were restricted as to when they could deliver goods. After years of driving rush hour freeways, it was shocking to see how wide open everything was. For a while it was even discussed keeping truck drivers on restricted hours but I suspect it would have caused a good deal of hardship.

    Companies with large payrolls also changed their shift start times. The Co. I worked for went to something like an hour earlier. That was also part of the wide open freeways Dena got to enjoy.
