Happier times. Lord Coe at the London Olympics bid two years ago

Things have just gone from bad to worse at London's Olympic site as more news emerges about the cost debacle.

Lord Seb Coe, head lordy bloke behind the bid told the press:

"Well I think it all started when we accepted a bid from some lads in a battered van who happened to knock on our door. They offered to build us all the infrastructure, stadia and services 'Top job like guv'nor for £675 cash in hand'

It seems now that costs have gone up and they're going to have to do the job 'all legit like sorr, troo de books loike' and this has caused costs to rocket to £9.3 billion"

A spokesman for the company, Murphy, Brady Murphy and Murphy told The Spoof:

"Ah now like, 'twas all set up and we'd shook hands on a price and everything but then somebody shopped us to the VAT man and we've had to go official"

We asked; why the dramatic increase even allowing for the fact that the job is now going through official channels? The spokesman told us:

"Ah now! I know nothing about that loike sorr. I just operate de digger and make de tea"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
