Jowell II - The Farce Continues

Tessa Jowell has tried to retract her now infamous comment:

"Had we known what we know now, would we have bid for the Olympics? Almost certainly not."

Unfortunately for her the retraction, not that anyone believes her, comes too late.

The French, according to The Telegraph are laughing themselves silly at the mess that we are making of the Olympics.

Specifically the French media note that the British budget was "fantasy".

I fully agree with them, the budget has ballooned from £3BN to £12BN (including £2BN running costs) and looks likely to top £20BN.

What I do not understand is why Jowell is still in her job?
