Another reason why we should not have bid for the Olympics

The BBC reports:

Foreign armed police may be needed for the 2012 London Olympics because there are not enough British officers trained to use firearms.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair told a Metropolitan Police Authority (MPA) meeting it may be too expensive to train British policemen.

Can't they find a bit of change in the £9bn they're already spending?

I wonder if Londoners would have preferred £1,000 each in cash rather than a pointless boondoggle.
