It is time to stop the blame game and also to recognise that this is such a major and complex issue ... This requires huge investment. We're not talking £100 million-£200 million. The IOC have now got to take the lead and make sure the investment is in place for a state-of-the-art ticketing policy. It is our view that LOCOG are working exceptionally hard to try to sort out as many of the challenges associated with ticketing as possible.
