Well done

Matt Sinclair has had a triumph and as a member of the freemasonry of blogging I feel I should stick my oar in. Basically Matt has managed using his rather nimble intelligece to outwit the lumbering elephantine Whitehall bureacracy- including that Solon of modern Socialism Tessa Jowell. Matt pointed out that building Olympic buildings might have an effect on inflation- but Tessa responded with the accuracy of a coiled snake that of course it couldn't- because and I quote the Olympics are an investment- and obviously nothing bad can come from an investment. Most of the details from today and yesterday's Metro and Telegraph are here but suffice it to say it appears to me that Matt has succeeded in making his point- and making a government minister reel back on some obscurantist jargon- now where have I ever seen a politician resting back on some indecipherable jargon given to him or her by civil servants without fully understanding what was going on- ah yes that reminds me...


Lets hope someone is getting some rather serious questions in the Department of Culture tonight!

That's really neat that the report was acknowledged and that people are talking about it. Sometimes one can feel invisible talking about issues and even more invisible being the one person doing research and finding out things.
