The Spying Game

How interesting, it seems that a man has been arrested over claims that London 2012 executives were put under surveillance by Tottenham Hotspur FC.

Baroness Ford, Chairman of the Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC) told the London Assembly that all 14 OPLC board members had been spied on.

Baroness Ford told the London Assembly (as per the BBC):

"My board were put under surveillance by Tottenham Hotspur and the chairman of Tottenham Hotspur felt confident enough to say that in the Sunday Times several months ago, that all 14 members of my board were put under surveillance.

The Metropolitan Police are now conducting an investigation into that surveillance.

There has been all kinds of behaviour here that I could not have anticipated which, believe me, has not been pleasant in the last 12 months.

I'm expecting the unexpected because that's what the last 12 months has told me.

Our job now is to narrow, as far as we possibly can, the scope now for legitimate legal challenge in this next process. That is all that we can do.

If people want then to be vexatious, frivolous and vindictive or whatever they want, they will do that."

Dirty tricks involving football and sport?
