Olympic Emty Seats and Empty Words
Why all those empty seats? That's what both Brits and Olympic tourist are asking, as they find themselves scurrying to find a seat at any event at the 30th modern Olympics. Turns out in the rush to finance the games, massive numbers of tickets were purchased by corporate interests and are going unused. Also blocks for athletes and journalist remain empty as both work to make the most of their time training and covering events at the ground or behind the scenes levels. BBC domestic service has been deluged with complaints about traffic, alleged crime and the inaccessibility of the games.
