As can be judged from the exclusive interview on these pages, it has not taken long for Boris Johnson to get his feet under the 2012 Olympic table – and start thumping it, which could put him on a collision course with Games planners and the Government. When the new mayor chaired his first meeting of the Olympic Board last week he made it clear there will be a tightening of belts and purse strings, indicating that some planning had been "pretty unrealistic and would have cost taxpayers a lot of money". Closer to home he is reducing the number of City Hall delegates travelling to Beijing, and like himself they will be flying economy. He is also scrapping plans for 18 Gordon Ramsay-trained chefs to provide gourmet catering at 2012's Beijing hospitality base, London House. Johnson is setting up a unit of business experts to help make the Games cost-effective. The Carphone Warehouse co-founder David Ross has already been brought in to keep an eye on the costs, and we hear that Lord Michael Heseltine, aka "Tarzan", Johnson's predecessor as Tory MP for Henley, is favoured to play akey role on this new Games watchdog body.
