Tessa Jowell, the minister for the Olympics and Paymaster General, has had an epiphany.
She has finally realised, and publicly admitted, that the London 2012 Olympics are a mistake.
Something that everyone else has been saying for the last few years.
Jowell, who has mismanaged the Olympics budget (which has ballooned from £3BN to £12BN, including running costs) made her admission to 40 leisure industry bosses at a dinner on Tuesday night.
"Had we known what we know now, would we have bid for the Olympics? Almost certainly not."
She then had a go at the media for giving rise to the impression that:
"The budget is out of control; all the venues are late; and all the people involved with this great project are completely useless."
Unfortunately for Jowell, all of the above seems to be pretty accurate from where I am sitting.
