The Olympic Legacy (2)

For anyone like me interested in examining the effect of the Olympics, good and bad, and the incredibly complicated politics behind it, I recommend Dave Hill’s very detailed account in his self-published book on The Olympic Park (see below). It’s hard now to track the changing policies which Hill details. Ken Livingstone and particularly Tessa Jowell come out of it well. The issue which Ollie Wainwright raises in the Guardian yesterday is how far Boris Johnson then hijacked the Legacy Corporation and thwarted the realisation of their original ideals.
