Asked about Mrs Blair’s role in the Olympic bid the PMOS said that it was too early to brief on our strategy for the Olympic bid. All he would say was that the Prime Minister, Tessa Jowell and Mrs Blair were all determined that we went flat out to do everything we could to support the bid, and we would.

Asked if his announcement this morning that that there had already been benefits from simply bidding for the Olympics, was preparing the ground for not winning it, the PMOS said it was precisely because he thought that people might jump to that conclusion that he had said emphatically that we would be going flat out to make the bid. He was saying that the process of having gone flat out to make the bid that had resulted in a legacy and that was just a statement of fact. It was not preparing the way for anything other than us continuing to go flat out. He was glad to see that some questions were as predictable as always.
