Olympics again

Enough of the Olympics nonsense. How about reading Jarndyce on something that actually MATTERS?

Although I feel I should point out that the initial estimated budget of the 2012 London Olympics (£2.375 billion), likely to rise, could – based on Jarndyce’s sums – pay for 999,579 better childhoods. Nearly a million children given a better chance, or a bunch of adults mindlessly competing in games that most of us gave up when we were twelve?
