Blair's Olympics pledges
Blair has launched his pledges for regeneration in East London prior to 2012 which includes a rather unbelievable commitment to opening 60 new city academies. In six years? I can't really see that happening, especially given what a disaster the initial wave of academies has been. It also includes a £35m skills package.

And a memorable quote: "We have six years to regenerate east London. Six years to demonstrate to the world, as to ourselves, that we can host the greatest show on earth." Arrgh. Six years? It's really not long at all and I already feel, in football parlance, that its getting to be squeaky-bum time.
