London Olympics - what could go wrong

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Kromeriz, Jul 15, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just read a couple of threads and although I do not subscribe to the Army going rogue and taking over Westminster given the quantities of hardware enforcing this and that zones of control over the UK and the preparation that G$S have put into things are we allowed to wonder...

    ...what could go wrong?

    Feel free...
  2. No one gets there because the tube network breaks down because of a power cut so the ticket barriers are also affected and no one can get in, McDonalds can't fry and it rains for days.
  3. We don't win enough medals to come top of the medal table.

    Oh .......
  4. Rain in England?

    C'mom but on the World Service today people were defo pissed with Mickey D's for subordinating the Olympics message with their own of hamburgers... not sure if they will sponsor the next Olympics.
  5. View from the Czech Republic is you come third or fourth in the tables!

    A Rapier missile battery goes missing, only to wind up for sale at Silverman's a week later ?

  8. In all honesty I think that's the UKOC target too.
  9. Sat alone with the dreams of children as the Jam would say...
  10. There is a very long odds possibility that the UK will win only a few medals.
  11. But it is highly likely that Victoria Pendleton will take her clothes off for an arty photo shoot again if she wins some medals so all is well.

  12. Er yes, that is a possibility. Probably enumerated by those in power to have as likely a chance as a 747 dropping on the main stadium...
  13. Everyone from all of the African teams will apply for assylum as soon as they arrive.
    The teams from Islamic countries will boycot any event that has an Isreali competitor.
    There will be widespread alligations of drug abuse and cheating.
    There will be a scandal surrounding the sale of "Officials" tickets.
    There will be stories about corruption and profiteering involving the organisers.
    The opening cerimony will be a national embarrassment that will have us hanging our heads in shame for generations to come.
    The weather will turn the whole thing into a very damp squib.
    Our team will be shiote and bring home less than half of the expected medal haul.
    Overseas visitors will complain about rip off prices, poor tranport and muggings.
    We will have some of the worst tv punditry ever broadcast. It will be so bad it will make the diamond jubilee flotilla broadcast look professional.

    Apart from the transport infrastructure falling over, strikes,security failures (because most of G4S are at prays) attacks from the inside, due to minimal vetting of paid and unpaid staff . Batman and Robin running up the Mall, chased by Captain Marvel and 300 Coppers. and worst of all the Female volley ball teams having to wear clothes because it,s raining.
  15. Given the latest fad for anyone in London demanding a pay rise, I reckon there'll be a strike somewhere at some time.

    In all seriousness, my money would be on something happening elsewhere in the town. Overcrowding of the infrastructure is the most likely effect - gridlock.
