Richard Barnes (Deputy Mayor): Chair, I know a number of hymns that would lift us, but I have heard the gloom from the Labour Party, and as they are only half-full glass people, then it would be difficult.
Anyway, Mr Mayor, I am grateful that Assembly Member Doocey raised the issue of the Olympics under this open-ended question. Is it not true that when you assumed office four years ago, there was no legacy plans for the Olympics? Is it not true that the cost of the Olympics had gone up from 2005 at £2.4 billion to £9 billion in March 2007, that there were no policies in place to achieve that slogan that was adopted, 'The most accessible Games ever' and that in those four years, you have brought that budget under control, you have ensured that the Olympics will be delivered on time and to budget
Jennette Arnold (Chair): Can you finish? Can you bring that to order?
Richard Barnes (Deputy Mayor): and that policies are in place to achieve the most accessible Games ever, and indeed, the most green Games ever, and as a result, Londoners can be proud and better off than they were four years ago?
