London 2012 Olympics: Empty seats on the opening day prompts investigation


By Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist and Patriot

One person, one word and one unknown individual can be largely blamed for the lack of attendance at the London Olympic Games and that would be Obama.

His failed foreign policy has made the world a far less safer place.  What rational person would want to be sitting at ground zero should the games be attacked as suggested?

Obama once again rivals Jimmy Carter, who screwed up the Olympics for the U.S. Olympic team, while Obama’s “Turn the other cheek” dithering policy with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and the Muslim midget in Iran only emboldens them.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

An investigation has been launched by the London 2012 organizers after banks of empty seats were evident in multiple sporting venues on the opening day of the games.

Missing the action: BOA chairman Lord Moynihan says that filling the seats with home support would deliver a boost to the British team

Blame Bush?

The London TelegraphDespite tickets for the events being sold out, television images revealed scores of empty seats at the swimming, dressage, volleyball and tennis.

Commentators noted the unfilled seats and members of the public who were unable to buy tickets took to social media websites like Twitter to express their anger. (Complete article below)

A spokesperson for the London Organizing Committee Olympic Games, (Logco) said: “We are aware that some venues have empty seats this morning. We believe the empty seats are in accredited seating areas, and we are in the process of finding out who should have been in the seats and why they weren’t there.”

It comes after Locog faced criticism for the number of seats being given to corporate sponsors, Olympic officials and VIP guests.

There were also fears last week that long queues and transport problems would leave many ticket holders unable to get to their seats in times to watch the main events.

Members of the public echoed such sentiments. Alex Batchelor wrote: “Can anyone explain why there are lots of empty seats? Tried repeatedly to get tickets without success.”

  1. It didn’t help with Intel supporting rumors that there ia good possiblity of a mini atom bomb being planned for the Olympics. It wouldn’t surprise me though, the Britih have long held the title of the most Corrupted Nation in the world and the head of the world;s finances…

  2. The event tickets were apparently allocated not according to first-come, first-serve capitalist principles, but rather assigned via state bureaucrats to various ethnic blocks, union groups, etc. in the name of “fairness” regardless of actual intent of anybody to attend.

    Britain is a Fabian Socialist country where resources are allocated according to a mathematical model constructed around what’s assumed to be a “fair and equal” basis. This invariably ends up with the wrong people in charge allocating the wrong things in all the wrong places at the wrong time.

    This is the same philosophy in England which did away with all the local village doctors by moving them to central County clinics where, at low wages and long hours. they were supposed to impersonally treat strangers as if those were objects on a factory asembly line.

    “Scientific Socialism”, you know. Leads both to empty stadium seats and MD/RN shortages.

  3. Right on target, 100% correct…

  4. Now stop and think, Not only get tickets but have to tolerate the abuse of the TSA and muslims all over the UK. God only knows the questions and touching one would have to endure to attend. Obama has not made any kind of travel easy, only those walking in over the borders get a free pass. Then you arrive and imagine all the security at the games. Traveling is just not a fun thing to do anymore regardless of the destination.
