London must be getting quite a fun place. As well as 'zil lane roulette' as you try to work out what few square inches of the public highway you an drive on without being fined to death, there's the excitement of wondering whether you're more likely to be killed by a self-detonating beardman or an ND-ing copper.
Also, the streets seem for some reason to be being filled with plastic statues of giant, angry-looking psychadelic cocks:
Not fed up at all. Really looking forward to an exciting session of sports. What I am fed up with is the endless nay sayers going on about, it'll fail, oh woe is us. So G4S got it wrong, thank goodness we still have armed forces to help. Oh no, London is to be flooded with pickpockets, at least the police are trying to do something about this. The traffic is so bad we will all die lot are begining to sound a bit thin. Last time was 48 years ago, and this time its only for 2 months and may never come back, certainly not in my lifetime. Stop whinning about it and get involved. I am dismayed by those who want it to fail, so they can do the "I told you so" routine. Is their pride in being British so diminished that they are willing to do this great nation down at every opportuniy? The Olympics is a brilliant spectacle and any of you involved in public displays know what a nightmare some of those are behind the scenes, so imagine what this one is like for a world wide audience. Ok rant over, breath and steps away from the keyboard.
There are some bars in Dublin which after 18:00 stick the price of thier pints up by 20cents, only 20cents you say well that's a 20cents increase on the hour, every hour till closing time, this is on pints that are already costing over £5 in real money
