Three dry winters and total mismanagement and lack of investment in infrastructure means that large areas of the UK are in drought, so if you are visiting for the Olympics expect a standpipe on the corner outside your hotel for your ablutions!

The reason that bodies like Thames Water have instituted a hosepipe ban as early as March this year is precisely for this reason - visitors, rest assured that you will be able to have a shower at your hotel.
There are neither water shortages nor Olympic events in my little corner of Wales.
I am delighted with both situations.
Ok, there might be little rain over the Olympics 2012, even when this huge amount of rain subsides. However, what is worrying many more is the potential threat of terrorism at the London Olympic Games 2012. Read this article about what the UK government is doing to tackle this issue which will be discussed a lot in the coming months.

I think that's a bit O.T.T. (Over the Top)
People have been advised to cut down on using water hoses, thats all - we (UK) haven't become a Sahara Desert. I'm sure those who will visit will enjoy their stay.
I'd go showerless for the entire trip if I had to, if I had the opportunity to go to London!
Ironically since the hosepipe bans were introduced on April 5th, it's done nothing but pour with rain. But the Environment Agency is saying that now half of England is in drought, and that the drought will last until at least Christmas because ground water and reservoirs are so depleted.

Why do they have to have professional athletes in so many of the Olympic games these days?I believe that the Olympics should be like the days of old. I believe the younger athletes should have the opportunities for the sports. The pros that are there have already had or are getting there chance to...
