More Olympic Fallout

You might have thought that Tessa Jowell has been gargling with Polonium given the severity of the fallout from the latest Olympic budget fiasco. As the Guardian put it,
Arts leaders turn on Jowell over Olympics, Hytner and Co.'s point being that if you raid the Arts, Media and Sport budget for ten billion or so to pay for the already hideously over budget Olympics, unsurprisingly you have less for everyone else. As so often with this government, what works has been quietly abandoned in favour of what can be spun. Only now, Tessa, people have noticed that you and your lot can't manage your way out of a paper bag, let alone bring a large six year infrastructure project in on budget, and they are annoyed that they are having to pay for your incompetence.
