Job Application Time.

Possibly it’s about time that I applied for a job. What do you think? 20 years experience of running small businesses around the world, making my own way. Know quite a lot about weird metals, a bit about economics, on a good day I can arrange words in pleasant patterns. Should be a shoo in for some important and well paid job, correct?

So, I’m thinking of applying for these two. Yes, both Chair and Chief Executive of the Olympic Delivery Authority for the London Games of 2012. Right up my street really, massive salaries and not a lot to do. I could do both of them, easily.

I’d practise what I preach, a bit of good economics, and outsource, even offshore the games. China will have all the necessary infrastructure in place and only four years old (so it might actually be finished).

So, the London 2012 Olympic Games brought to you  in Beijing. Very 21 st Century, don’t you think?

ASBO lootingly 21st centuary indeed. And to CAP it all, EU public procurement law aims to ensure that all European companies have a fair chance to bid for public contracts.

Tim,

I think Anoneumouse just made that all up. He knows no-one's actually going to check.

By the way, when I become Supreme (mostly benign) Leader I promise to cut all this red tape. In fact there will be only one law: "DO AS I SAY."

BOOHOOHAHA BOOHOOHAHA!

Well, that idea would certainly sort out Bath's problems with building a new stand at the Rec. It'd be a feck of a walk home afterwards, though.
