Olympics in london- more confusion
BBC reports,"Ken Livingstone has denied the 2012 Olympics finances are in chaos - as he contradicted what Culture Secretary Tessa Jowell told MPs on Tuesday.
Ms Jowell said the cost of the Olympic Park had risen from £2.4bn to £3.3bn, blaming inflation and the decision to spend £400m on a "delivery partner".
But London's Mayor insisted the £2.4bn figure stood, saying any increase was due to other regeneration work.
"Nothing is a mess, everything is going exactly according to plan," he said.
For the Lib Dems, Don Foster MP said the differing messages underlined the need for greater scrutiny of costs in Parliament.
"Ken Livingstone's bizarre denial of cost overruns has merely added to the confusion," he said."
Hello, whats true here. Accounting figures should be clear. Accountability- I don't think so.
So as a londoner I didn't get to vote on whether I wanted to be involved in paying for these games. And now who knows how much as the politicians and administrators can't agree on what the figures are and which ones count.
Do the words farce ring any bells?
