2012 Olympics

Asked how the Prime Minister thought the preparations for the 2012 Olympics were going, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) replied that obviously the IOC would reach its own judgements, that was right and proper. But in previous judgements the IOC has recognised that we were substantially further ahead at this stage than comparable cities were at the same stage. So the progress was there. The Prime Minister has always recognised that the cycle of perception began with the euphoria of winning, followed by the realisation that there was quite a lot of work to be done, and then the inevitable accusations that it was all a disaster. This visit was a chance to look at the objective facts, and certainly on the last assessment the objective facts were that London was well ahead of the game.
