The Most Accessible Olympics Ever - Yeah, Right...

We've had ministers, LOCOG and BoJo all claiming London 2012 would be "the most accessible Olympics ever", but the sad reality is that they have actually slashed the budget for accessibility improvements and quietly dropped targets for improvement (while still proclaiming their virtual sainthood to the masses).

 Out of 270 Tube stations, only 66, virtually all in the suburbs, have step free access to the platform, and 49 of those then have a step up to the train.

 Good enough, or a sick joke?
