Higher, Higher

I made the claim below, in an article posted on the 18th of November last year, that I thought the British Olympic Games in 2012 would cost no less than £18 billion pounds, after the initial estimate of £2.3 billion. Well, after today's official estimate of £9 billion, and with more than five years to go, I think I was being remarkably generous with a measly guesstimate of a mere £18 billion.

Any advance on £30 billion, anyone?
