David Cameron has been outlining what will make the London 2012 Olympics the best that has ever been.
"The London Olympics are a true British enterprise," said Cameron. "We bid for them several years ago with the intention of stimulating the economy, and to this end, they have already been massively successful."
According to Cameron, all of the Olympic venues have been built using Polish builders, with materials imported from China. The Olympic uniforms have been made in Thailand, whilst Japanese electronic firms have put together all of the technical infrastructure. All the medals have been finished using South African gold and presses in Switzerland. The transport system that has been put in place for the Olympics was built using Ghanaian steel and German trains. The call centre for the tickets is based in India, and the website is run by a Swedish firm and hosted in America. The specially designed running track is from Canada, whilst all the food will be brought in from Italy. Power for the games will come from France, using cables laid by a Finnish company.
"There can be no doubt that an event of this magnitude is stimulating the economy," said Cameron. "The amount of money we are spending has to be going somewhere, and when money goes somewhere it stimulates."
When asked exactly which part of the money was spent in Britain, to stimulate the British economy, Cameron was unequivocal.
"All of the guns in the shooting events were bought from a market stall in the East-end of London."
