The cost of the Olympics is estimated at £9bn
The estimated number of individuals paying income tax is given as 30 million
Of course, everyone in the UK is actually a tax payer, and the population of the UK is estimated at 60 million
£9 billion divided by 60 million is £150 per UK citizen regardless of income
£9 billion divided by 30 million is £300 per UK income tax payer
This is of course before you pay for travel, accommodation, or tickets. Ticket prices for the 100m ranged from £50 to £725. Tickets for the opening ceremony were priced at £20.12, £150, £995, £1,600 and £2,012.
Tickets to see Snow Patrol in Hyde Park are £66 (the neighbour of the beast)
Enjoy the Games!
