London 2012 | Looking forward to it?

6 03 2010

The invitation to the world to jet here with vast teams of athletes, each with dreams of winning Gold in the tournament where running, skipping and hopping is a sport is painted as a prestigious occasion.  One where we can all share in the delights of humanity and the pursuit of perfection.

Also a very good reason for very good knees-up at the Public’s expense, a very good reason to ‘move-on’ communities then redevelop the land with vast architectural extravagances to sell to the highest bidder once the Planning Committee have been bled for cash.  And a very damned good reason to ‘up’ corporate security.  No word of a lie.

from Reuters “Eyes turn to “value for money” London 2012″

Police will have powers to enter private homes and seize posters, and will be able to stop people carrying non-sponsor items to sporting events.

“I think there will be lots of people doing things completely innocently who are going to be caught by this, and some people will be prosecuted, while others will be so angry about it that they will start complaining about civil liberties issues,” Chadwick said.

“I think what it will potentially do is to prompt a debate about the commercial nature of the Games. Do big sponsors have too much influence over the Games?”

I’m finding more and more reasons to stay in Peckham, seeing as the dreaded EU machine has only scarred my lands with a dodgy library and even dodgy-er swimming baths.  Hate to think of the coming shut-down that will bear down on East London this Olympics.

Thanks for the link, I’ve placed it in the sidebar.

Another great money-go-round scheme that is sure to drain us all for years to come. I reckon the Police intrusion will be a breeze compared to the deprivation caused afterwards.

May go France for the Summer 2012. That or Scotland.
