?100m black hole discovered in 2012 Olympics accounts
« on: June 24, 2009, 05:37:38 PM »
Can you get a gold medal for fiddling accounts - we would be world beaters  noooo:

A ?100m black hole in the 2012 Olympics accounts of the London Development Agency (LDA) is to be investigated by independent auditors, it was revealed last night.

A routine check on the accounts of the LDA, which is the business and development arm of Mayor Boris Johnson, hasrevealed huge irregularities with the accounting of taxpayer's money. A team of external accountants from KPMG, the consultancy that has been advising other parts of the London 2012 set-up on cost-cutting measures, has now been called in to investigate the whereabouts of the missing money.

Two senior members of staff at the LDA have been suspended. Gareth Blacker, who oversaw the purchase of the huge Olympic site on the Lea Valley, adjacent to Stratford in east London, is on indefinite leave, as is his accountant. No evidence of wrongdoing is attached to either Mr Blacker or his accountant.

Concerns began to mount after the Mayor announced a comprehensive audit of LDA accounts in March. The Olympic Legacy Directorate (OLD) was the last of the LDA departments to be reviewed. Analysis of its accounts revealed that between ?60m and ?100m, which was due to be put aside as compensation for businesses forced to relocate from the site, is unaccounted for.

Well as Boris has lost 3 of his advisors so far for 'discrepancies' surely he should be next.
