Nicky Campbell asks listeners if Britain is buckling under the pressure of 2012. With a summer of Olympics and the Diamond Jubilee on the horizon, the country will be playing host to more tourists than ever before - and the world will be watching. But with Britain facing hosepipe bans due to drought, fuel shortages, powers cuts caused by snow and worries about our border controls, Nicky wonders whether the country's infrastructure is equal to the task.
