When the Olympics began, the UK was set to host a major event that would have a huge economic impact on the country.
The Games were a great opportunity for the country to showcase its technology, but the infrastructure was already in place to host the games.
Instead, the Games were held in Cardiff, Wales, which had been left behind by the Olympic movement to host other sporting events.
It was an embarrassing situation for the UK.
While the Games came with the expectation of the UK becoming the first country to host and host the Games in the same place, the country failed to meet that goal.
In the absence of a permanent host, the government and private sector were left to pick up the tab for the games and infrastructure.
While this might sound like a huge waste of money, the problem was much worse than that.
Instead of being able to host events in the UK, the organisers in Cardiff decided to move the Games to London, which would cost an estimated £500m.
The UK was still not in a position to host major sporting events like the Summer Olympics or the Commonwealth Games, which the Government was already spending hundreds of millions of pounds on.
As a result, the Olympic Games were cancelled in May 2012.
With the Olympics cancelled, the Government decided to take on another financial burden to cover the costs of hosting the Games.
With no Olympics to attend and no economic benefit from the Games, the situation is worse than the first time around.
The problem with the OlympicsThe Olympics had two main goals: To showcase the UK as a host nation to attract global investors to the UK and to demonstrate that the UK could host major events like these in a more efficient manner.
Unfortunately, the Olympics were not the only reason why the Government cancelled the Games – other issues were also at play.
Firstly, the cost of hosting a major sporting event like the Olympics was too high.
Despite the cost being covered by the taxpayer, it was costing the Government tens of millions in extra costs for the Games that were not accounted for in the costings.
Secondly, the timing of the Games was not ideal.
A major sporting tournament is a big deal for the government.
But with the Games set to be held in a city that has been left out of the Olympics since 1996, the events had to be postponed for six months.
This meant that the Games could not take place in Cardiff.
This made it harder for the Government to meet the Olympic target of generating 1.5 million jobs by 2020.
In the end, it cost the Government more than £50m to keep the Games going and to make the Olympics the biggest sporting event in the country’s history.
There is no silver lining to the OlympicsIt was a shame that the Government did not invest in infrastructure to accommodate the Olympic games and the Olympics did not help boost the economy.
These are two reasons why the Olympics should never have been cancelled.
As the Government’s plan to build the Olympic village is already in the planning stages, the future of the event is still uncertain.
However, the past Olympic Games have been an inspiration for others to do the same.
After the Games the government decided to fund a new Olympic village to host more major sporting and cultural events.
We hope that the Olympic Village will be the start of a new era in the future for the Olympics and the future lives of those who will be attending them.
