The Diary: Home Office press team flies Jamaica flag for Olympics

Some civil servants are going to be very busy during the Olympics fortnight. Not all, of course – otherwise the Government would not have needed to shell out for 2,300 tickets so civil servants could watch the events, including 410 for the women's beach volleyball, bottom. But at the Home Office and the Foreign Office there will not be a lot of time for enjoying the contests. The Foreign Office will have to look after no fewer than 120 heads of state or heads of government who will be in London, each of whom has to have an assigned official making sure his or her visit goes smoothly. The Home Office is also anticipating a heavy workload, and will be staffed from 6am to 11pm. To keep up morale, the department has organised a competition in which each section of the Home Office is assigned a middle ranking country, and there will be a prize of some sort for the section whose national athletes win the greatest number of gold medals. The press office has Jamaica. This explains why, if you visit the Home Office press office this week, you will see a Jamaican flag prominently displayed.
