FOR THE GOOD OF ALL? In London, Martin Robinson notes the U.K. government has “ordered 9,000 Olympic events tickets at the taxpayers’ expense to entertain dignitaries throughout the London 2012 Games.” Officials will “plough at least” US$1.2M of public money into Games tickets because they believe it will be for the “benefit of the whole of the UK”. The Department for Culture, Media and Sport also has “not ruled out buying more expensive hospitality packages on top of the tickets order” (London TELEGRAPH, 2/18).
