We all knew it would happen. The Olympic delivery Authority And that's a new speak of the modern age, if ever I heard one.)
It would appear that the cost of the Olympic Games in London is going to cost overrun again.
The Government faces the prospect of having to raid its dwindling Olympic contingency fund yet again, with officials announcing further cost increases yesterday in the delivery of the 2012 Games.
The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) warned that the next 12 months would be the toughest yet as the pace of construction accelerated to meet venue completion deadlines in early 2011.
The authority, which is responsible for the infrastructure at the Games, disclosed that its costs had increased by £21 million in the past quarter.
The Millennium dome all over again. Just at the time that we are broke. Why is it that all we see is open ended contracts by Government departments? The average citizen having the plumber in, would never be held to ransom like these fuckwits in Governments.
Why don't we just give the contractors a blank cheque at the start?
