And what if they say no?

From Hansard: "Simon Hughes: To ask the Minister for the Olympics what plans she has to use past British Olympic medal winners as ambassadors in the run-up to the 2012 Olympic games.

Tessa Jowell: I intend to work with sports organisations to use current and retired Olympians and Paralympians, not just medal winners, as ambassadors in the run up to the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games".

These men and women are an inspiration to the nation and are ideal role models for the young people of today". (ssshh, no one mention the ones who forget to take drug tests)

Erm, don't they have any say in the matter, or should we assume that these individuals have no more autonomy than store mannequins and will be delighted to (triple) jump when the odious Ms Jowell snaps her fingers?
