Foreign Troops Deployed in UK for Olympics

‘Olympic Security’ seems to be a joke.  After the CPUK debacle, we now find that G4S got a £250 Million Contract to supply security staff for the Olympics but now say they can’t provide the full complement required.  In addition, they are only being fined £50,000 a day for their failure under the Contract terms.  Teresa May is finding a 25% shortfall in security staff two weeks before the start of the games.  She said she was ‘working hard’ to see that security was in place.  Doesn’t look like it.
