Figures recently released by the Government show that the nine senior executives at the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) are paid more than David Cameron's annual salary of £142,500.

However, Sir Craig Reedie, the architect of London's bid to host the Games and now a member of the International Olympic Committee's Executive Board, has told insidethegames:

"I think the professionalism that has been shown by the people at the top ODA is outstanding and in world competitive terms, the remuneration is modest."

So that's alright then!

  1. I personally don't care what people earn.....I think people are paid according to their skills and abilities and the number of people that can perform their role.
    Regarding many public sector non jobs/posts, many people and perhaps, trainned chimps, could perform many of the roles and yet, pay and perks are high.
    Many people on the inside have made a lot of money from our nation's involvement in hosting the Olympics....It's this apparent culture of "jobs for those with the right connections" within our Olmpic industry that annoys me.

    If the state regulates maximum pay etc, especially for private concerns, then that's communism.....The "Let's get the bankers" campaign and now the Let's vilify the disabled" campaigns conducted through the media, rely on people's jealousy and assists Nanny in helping to control the sheep population......All I ask for in public sector appointments is that, we get value for money and that it is not a role created for PC reasons.
