    The technologies that could help make the 2012 Olympic games more secure have not yet been announced but already a row has broken out about them.
    It was sparked by comments made by Derek Wyatt, the chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Olympic group.

    At a security conference in London, he said that potential technology suppliers had been overlooked in favour games sponsor Visa.

    In a statement, Visa said it had no part to play in security for the games.

    Its technology would play a "major role" in the area of payments, it said but security issues were the remit of the London Organising Committee and the Metropolitan Police.

    "Technological advancements including contactless cards, due to be introduced in London later this year, will help Visa Europe to realise its vision for a cashless London Games," its statement read.

    Wembley Stadium over budget and well over time fior construction. Now the Olympic Games. That can`t of course go over as far as time is concerned, but as for the budget it`s already increased several fold. Why on earth can`t the planners get these things right first time?

    I`m quite sure there`ll be a lot more rows before the games start.

    I am actually yet to see a major project like this complete smoothly anywhere in the world without lots of problems like this.
