Cameron to set out Tory Olympic agenda

David Cameron, the leader of the Conservative party, will outline his vision for the 2012 Olympics for the first time when he addresses the Sport Industry Lecture next month.

With at least one election likely between now and the 2012 Games, there is a strong possibility that Cameron, rather than Gordon Brown, will head the Government at the time of the London Olympics.

Cameron’s lecture, organised by the Sport Industry Group, will take place The Law Society in London on May 22. Those attending the £200-per-ticket event will hear Cameron speak during a three-course meal followed by an open forum allowing delegates to pose questions to the party leader.

He follows in the footsteps of Lord Coe, the chairman of London 2012 and a former Tory MP, who delivered a speech at the inaugural event.

According to Kevin Eason in today’s Times:

“Will Cameron outline his vision for the ‘sport’ that has captured his imagination for 20 years: stag hunting? Yes, our prospective prime minister is a dab hand at stalking (a useful attribute for a leader of the Opposition). In fact, an acquaintance tells us: ‘He is very good with a gun.’ Ooer.”
