Government Guarantees that Olympic track to go after 2012

To be fair to them the headline is slightly different.


But as always the devil is in the details. If I were the IAAF who were given this guarantee I would be very very cautious of it,
The inspectors of London's bid for the 2017 world athletics
championships were today handed a "cast-iron guarantee" by the
Government that the running track will remain in place at London's
Olympic Stadium regardless of whether Tottenham win their court action.

A letter from the Treasury Solicitor making the guarantee was given to
the IAAF evaluation commission, which is headed by senior vice-president
Bob Hersh of the United States, on their three-day visit to London.
The Tory Government are handing out a 'cast-iron guarantee'.

Who will give me odds that the track will be ripped up, just like Dave's last Cast Iron promise?
