Olympic Bid visit cost £680k

In news that hasn't been widely reported, the recent London Olympic Bid visit cost £680k!! No doubt London council tax payers will be pleased it didn't last five days.

The bid was paid for by all British tax payers, not just London citizens, the amount you quote is woefully inaccurate as it takes into account the cost of equipment that was bought before the bid was even considered and, with the full feel of propaganda, includes the cost of buying government cars that are used for foreign dignatories as well. There's a reason you didn't read that figure in The Economist.
