How do locals feel about the Olympics coming to the London area in 2012?

To be honest, the public isn't real keen on funding an Olympics during these tough economic times
and London has already hosted 'The Games' two times prior

And it is not like London craves the international spotlight with last year's Royal Wedding
and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee this June

People are concerned about the transportation reality during those three Olympic weeks next summer

But it has motivated London to upgrade its subway system,
the oldest underground railway in the world (since 1863)

Interestingly, there is a large variety of official Olympic Games posters for sale

This one is my fav...

English painter Bridget Riley arranged colors in horizontal stripes
to represent the direction of athletic tracks and swimming lanes

I just love it

Fancy a look at other 2012 Olympics posters?
