I look forward to seeing the Olympic torch pass through Lewes; as long as I can watch from my favourite watering hole in the High Street, and don't have to contribute to the £450 cost!

Just re-posting a thing I put at the end of the last thread on the torch, cos it's a bit far down now. I keep wondering if these sums can be right. The torches cost £495 each to make, according to Dickie. Every torch bearer has their own torch and it's just the flame that's passed on. There are 8000 torch-bearers. Can it be right that nearly £4 million quid has been spent just on the torches?! Have I got my maths wrong?
