I would be willing to pay £10 in additional taxes to bring the Olympic Games to London in 2012

As much as the Olympic Commitee would appriciate your £10, I think the decision of where to host the worlds largest atheltic competition should involve more than a tenner from a village.

Its a bit like hiring a builder to do some work on your house and then saying - "Its got to be done by next week at any cost."

The current projected cost is about £ 9 billion. However there are still five years of cost inflation to go and since this is a big government project similar to the Millenium Dome it seems reasonable to assume that the final cost will be nearer £ 20 billion.
Assuming there are 30m taxpayers this works out at £ 666 per taxpayer.
