If one stadium (Wembley) takes all this time
what are the hope for the Olympic venues?

I'm banking on a year - as you said, one stadium has caused no end of aggro, they really have no hope for a whole olympic set up - lets hope they learn how to assemble a roof without it collapsing this time around!

:( Waste of money....and to add insult to injury the end product will be getting home from work to find The Simpsons replaced by skinny folk running around in circles/throwing things........several of whom will later be exposed as drug cheats.

:rant: Tis all pants I tell thee.............

Perhaps you should have asked how much over budget will it be :mad: :mad: :mad:

For the delay I would have said 18 Months, but I've voted 1 year just to make life easier:) :) :)

Can I just say one thing guys?

Millenium Dome!

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh! :rant: :mad: :rant:

The rumour I heard was that they'd already
started building casino infrastructure within The 'Dome
because somehow they already know, in advance
of announcements from the government, who has one
the licence for the "Las Vegas" style casino.

I actually was quite impressed with the dome, and it will make a great venue for concerts.

You are a pesimistic lot! The venue will be finished on time, it's the costs that will go into orbit!!

Erm, didn't the dome cost £20 for every head in the whole of england? I would have preferred my £20, thank you.

Some of the venues will probaly be 10 years delayed. I'm sure the Olympics will go ahead, but I can't see all the facilities being completed :(

Lets just hope they don't employ the same folk that did the Scottish Parliament building. Think that turned out to be 40 times over budget!:wow:

I voted a year beyond deadline, but think thats probably optimistic.:(

I think it will all be completed, perhaps the lessons of wembley will be fresh in the contractors / developers minds.

Gotta go, some men in white coats are here.
