UK Army has to step in for Olympics info
Well now the organisers are coming under fire for not filling up all the seats allocated for Olympic officials, and corporate hospitality, despite the difficulty the public had getting tickets. Guess who they have draughted in to help out?

These cock ups happen at every event world wide, I think the best option is to stop looking for problems and just enjoy the games while they are there.

Problem is that many British people applied twice to LOCOG for tickets, then have spent hundreds of hours messing around on the LOCOG site for the scraps to no avail. I eventually got my ticket from France with a hefty surcharge for postage. Lord Coe is trying to brush it of saying there is no problem, but these empty seats are for the big wigs at the front.
Another issue are the traffic lanes allocated for officials which are clogging up London. These are being dubbed as Zil lanes.

About the only time the buses run on time in London is during the the schools summer holidays, so that the Olympic Traffic Lanes have not made things that much worse as the school holidays have compensated for this. The first day of operation of these lanes the cameras crews were out looking for a story on these and found very little troubles with them. Also these lanes were demanded by the Olympic committee if London got the games.
The Problem with those empty seats are that the Olympic officials demand so many are allocated to each country and you do not get any feed back if they are going to attend these events or not. The only was around this is if they are not there by the start then the seats are giving away to those waiting out side.
