Wise Words

"Don't let people believe the overall budget is what it costs to host the Olympic Games

That is a relatively small part of what is likely to be a much larger figure

Given that the London 2012 Olympics budget (currently £12BN, including running costs) is spiralling out of control, I couldn't have put it better myself.

Who spoke such wisdom?

None other than the Minister for Culture and Sport, Tessa Jowell, during a question and answer session in Chicago (Chicago is bidding for the 2016 games).

Why is it that Jowell has only now recognised this very obvious fact?
