China admits hiring people to fill empty olympic seats

Face-saving is important, especially in China. Let's face it, none of us likes to look silly. So it's no surprise to find that China is hiring people to fill empty seats at the olympics. But is it surprising really? When you can watch it on TV for nothing why should you waste money travelling, especially with the unreasonable security in airports and by all accounts the troops and police in and around the olympic venues being high profile.

Maybe the UK Government needs to take notice - with costs of the 2012 olympic games in London already spirallying out of control we should be asking how much money has been allocated to paying people to fill empty seats and questioning whether it's enough!
