London 2012 Olympics will be better than Beijing, says Jeremy Hunt
The Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt has said he believes the London Olympics will be better than those staged in Beijing in 2008.

Quote:
"In the Sydney Games they had a massive ticketing scandal just before the Games opened; in Athens they were still screwing on the roofs of the venues; in Beijing there were big issues over whether international journalists were going to be able to access the internet.
