i have never been a fan of organised sports " extravaganzas " so my bias may be showing , but these numbers dont make sense to me

there are > 65 million UK citizens - bit only 1.8 million people from the entire world population want tickets ?

and £2012 for the opening ceremony ?????????????

thats a lot of money - never mind the " convenient " co=incidence - attend the 2012 olympics , pay 2012 GBP

The prices vary....for £20 - £2012.
I was looking at tickets yesterday....AA tickets for swimming are £450.

You can only buy 4 tickets ever...so if your a family of 5....tough luck 1 cant go.

The majority of the tickets were sold to sponsors etc. Theres probably less than a million for the general public.
