Olympics Empty London. Why?



BBC -
Tourist attractions in central London also saw reduced visitor numbers over the weekend, according to the Association of Leading Visitor Attractions has said.
Its chief executive Bernard Donoghue said visitor numbers were between 30% and 35% lower.
He said this was "partly because the kind of visitor you get during an Olympic year is different to any normal year, and it is also partly because people think it is going to crowded and hectic here in central London".
Hoteliers across the capital have also complained about reduced occupancy levels.
Satbir Bakshi, owner of Hotel Earls Court, told the BBC: "Everyone was expecting big, big bonanzas, but this is the worst I have seen in 30 years.
"The Olympics was all hyped up, and every hotel - including mine - put their prices up.
"But with a week to go before the start of the games, I had to put my prices back down again. Like everyone else I'm only half full. Normally I'm full at this time of the year."
TAP - It's odd.  They spend GBP 12 billion on promoting London, and the place is a ghost town. Shops are down 10% on last year.  Hotels are half full, the emptiest in thirty years.  The arenas are empty while world class athletes perform.  What's the problem?
Maybe it's all the Illuminati symbols, the one-eyed Wenlock and Mandeville, the ZION 2012, and the pyramid lighting towers.  Kind of a giveaway that the same fruitcakes that did 911 and bombed London on 7/7 want to pull another stunt.  The evidence of G4S involvement, the same outfit that ensured CCTV failed on 7/7, and so on.  People have got wind, and got jumpy.

David Cameron was visiting a primary school and the class was in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings.

The teacher asked Mr Cameron if he would like to lead the discussion on the word 'tragedy'.

So our illustrious leader asked the class for an example of a 'tragedy'

A little boy stood up and offered: 'If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and a tractor runs over him and kills him, that would be a tragedy.'

'Incorrect,' said Cameron, 'that would be an accident.'

A little girl raised her hand: 'If a school bus carrying fifty children drove over a cliff, killing everybody inside, that would be a tragedy.'

'I'm afraid not', explained Cameron, 'that's what we would refer to as a great loss'.

The room went silent. No other children volunteered. Cameron searched the room.

'Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?'

Finally, at the back of the room, little Johnny raised his hand and said, 'If a plane carrying you, Mr. Clegg and Mr. Osborne was struck by a 'friendly fire' missile and blown to smithereens, that would be a tragedy.'

'Fantastic' exclaimed Cameron, 'and can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?'

'Well', said Johnny, 'it has to be a tragedy, because it certainly wouldn't be a great loss, and it probably wouldn't be an accident either!'

People have caught on to these criminals and their silly little mass media manipulation games. Plus there is the fact that Britain has been bankrupted and sold down the river by the banking elite, and so no one can afford to traipse around London spending money

And the place is empty - but basically he has given the reason hasn't he. You don't need complcated conspiracies when our old friend Greed is in charge.

Arenas aren't empty though they are packed its just athlete/ officials areas and the corporate leeches were empty spaces are.
There will be no terrorist attack no alien invasion ( can't believe weirdos on here believe that will happen) during this Olympics.

10/10 for twig.
Agree with Woodsy 100%.
With all the missile batteries and artillery surrounding London, you'd have to be a complete fuckwit to want to sit in the centre of the bullseye wouldn't you?
Then again you may just see the Olympics as an advertisement for political manipulation and gross profiteering by big corporations.
