I myself have seen a massive increase in investment (although I have been networking with the right people for my business sector) since the games began. It has been a wonderful time for the Capital, those that crap on it just don't see the bigger picture.

I actually work for a London University, investment comes in many forms, not just shovelling money into the coffers of the already rich, investment in all sectors is important.
As for being a yuppie no not really I live in a crappy overpriced rented studio flat in Hackney (because I actually love living in London) but considering moving back to Crystal Palace in South London where I grew up.
Why so judgemental!
I didn't miss troops or the air to ground missiles at all, but I come back to the original point the situation you described, the Prime Minister has never talked up the possibility of a terrorist attack. We have all been warned to keep out of London for infrastructure issues

You miss the point completely. You are a Nimby.
Your manor is Crystal Palace to use local parlance. You do not address the point as to how you would feel if the Olympics and all of the above problems were dumped in the area which you consider "home".
