The Gift

I gather the French have given us the 'gift' of holding the 2012 Olympics.

I have already requested a transfer to the 'Northern Office' for the duration. For the next seven years the combined might of Jarvis, Balfour Beatty, EDS and Kim Il Living-sum will battle to provide the facilities. Trains that won't run; IT systems that won't start; swimming pools that won't have enough water in them. The list is endless. Blair is taking the issue so seriously that he's appointed Tessa Jowell to be Minister for the Olympics.
