Wasting Taxpayers' Money

As if enough of taxpayers' money was not already being wasted on the London 2012 Olympics, eg on absurd logos, it seems that the organisers have come up with another means to throw money away.

The Olympic Delivery Authority has announced that it is looking for six people to work on staff diversity.

Each post will attract a salary of around £100K pa. Needless to say, hiring six people on that level of salary is merely the thin end of the wedge; large salaries need to be justified, therefore the six people will of course be hiring their own retinues etc to justify their jobs and salary levels.

The jobs currently being advertised include; head of equalities and inclusion at the Olympic Delivery Authority, equalities and inclusion manager, and head of diversity and inclusion at the London 2012 Organising Committee.

Here they are:



Sounds like the same job to me, why do they need so many people doing the same thing?

What a spectacular self serving waste of money!
