Olympic Con?

According to the Press members of the Committee that is to decide where the 2012 Olympics are to be held are visiting London. Apparently their car travel is to be eased by a subtle tweaking of the traffic lights along their route along with hasty removal of roadworks and other obstructions. Similarly all of the public transport that they will see has been checked, cleaned, and double-checked.

Two thoughts occur to me:-

Isn't this based on Stalin's wheeze of Potemkin Villages, in which cheery peasants showed the benefits of Communism?


If London wins the Games isn't someone liable to a charge of Obtaining a Pecuniary Advantage by Deception?
