Big Up Your Bad (Will) Self



I had been working on a piece about the myth of the much vaunted Olympic legacy when I rediscovered this brilliant Newsnight clip from last year.

Will Self totally ridicules the idea that the Olympics are about anything other than big business making a mint while all the rest of us can look forward to is a new shopping centre and a "retail training academy".

As Self says, "I think I could create more than ten thousand jobs if you give me nine billion quid". Oh, and he has a pop at Seb Coe as well. Nice.
