More and more Olympic jobs!

A while ago the LDA was telling us to treat its own predictions that the London Olympics would result in 50,000 new jobs 'with caution'. Now Newham's Mayor Sirrobin has come up with the even more outrageous total of 100,000 new jobs.

My only question to him is why stop at five zeros? Don't do things by halves. Stick on one more and you have a truly impressive and equally meaningless round million. The Financial Times didn't blink at the 100,000 figure so what's another zero between mates?
