View from the edge of the Olympics
The excellent blog Diamond Geezer is perhaps too rare an entrant onto these pages (not being solely about regeneration and building stuff, yawn), but for anyone interested in a thoughtful and observant take on London's past and future, he's always good.

But living as he does on the edge of the Olympics zone, he's been keeping a particularly beady eye on the changes (or lack of) there. Here's his response to the recently published Olympics Delivery Programme. The weary tone is a true and funny expression of what I sense a lot of people still feel about the whole thing, and will do until the legacy programme gets into gear.
