Olympics fail the Whelk Stall test

Olympic costs could spiral out of control, says spending watchdog - Times Online
In a highly critical report the Public Accounts Committee condemns the Government for allowing the original Olympic budget to treble to £9 billion and calls for urgent risk management to give warning of potential problems.

The report argues that no individual has overall responsibility for delivering the Games and the large numbers of bodies meant there was a high risk of time delays and cost overruns.

I think that is "high risk" as in "racing bloody certainty". Is it too late to let Paris have them?


I don't mind sending a fiver in.
