London has been congratulated by the International Olympic Committee for the most cynical reponse of any nation to ever host the games.
Picked out for special commendation was the UK population's complete unwillingness to 'go with the flow'. Jacques Rogge stated that 'We knew that the British were world renowned misanthropes, but this level of whingeing could only ever have been dreamed of at the IOC offices in Geneva'
Ms. Tessa Jowell's announcement that the budget was to increase by £900m to £3.3 bn overall took over 12 hours to be fully clarified as a result of the amount of tutting that her speech recieved. One journalist said that he only caught about 20% of her announcement because Tim Shipman of the Daily Mail spent the entire hour repeating the mantra 'I told you so, I told you so, tsk what do you bloody expect.'
The Olympic Delivery Authority's pronouncement that the Olympics would provide, a new transport infrastructure for London and the South East, the regeneration of the most deprived area in the UK, housing for 40,000 people, a 6 to 7 year job boom and at the end of it all a 2 week party was met by the throng of hacks sticking their fingers in their ears and shouting 'La la la la la, we're not listening, we're not listening'
