that is shocking
How the fuck?
How much is it estimated to cost us? surely it should cost LESS in a country like China. Far, far less.
I spent that on dinner last night
ended up exceeding that, will deffo be more than £9bn anyway.
Still insane though, £20bn is more than size of many countires' economies.
China is very rich and devoid of middle class guilt
Their GDP is ranked behind only the USA and Japan. They are fairing particularly well in the CREDIT CRUNCH too, as a result of a culture of saving.
UK equivalent would be £1.2bn at that rate
looks like the Olympics is gonna cost UK far more than it's costing China
but they're fools because street casting in Stockholm is like shooting fish in a barrel
