The Olympics will be late and over budget, warns Lemley

Former chairman of the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) Jack Lemley warned that the Olympic projects will be late and cost more than expected.
In an interview with the Idaho Statesman Lemely said that he left the ODA because he 'went there to build things, not just sit and talk about it, so I felt it best to leave the post and come home'.The remarks are said to have enraged Olympic officials as Lemely had agreed on leaving the ODA not to comment further on the project.Sports minister Dick Caborn insisted that the projects were on track and added he was disappointed with Lemley's comments.
