  2. 'defending Olympic silver medallist..'

    Really? I thought only winners defended a title not first losers!!!
  3. Thank **** that I am out of the country from the start till the end! Forget the Olympics, London transport can barely cope even during the least busy periods.
  4. What are the chances that the MPs think 'what a wonderful idea', and keep the lanes for themselves after the Olympics?

  6. I've looked in Homebase and Wickes, can't seem to find them anywhere, would the smaller, specialist, hardware store stock them do you suppose?

    I believe the best way is to make your own. 2 or 3 nails in a clay ball, baked in the oven. That way the whole thing breaks up on strike and all they find is a nail in their tyre. Apparently

    Apparently the tour de france recently enjoyed similar attention using tacks!

    I listened to LBC on the way into work this morning at 8. They had a reporter watching the Olympic lane from 5 when it opened. She said she'd not seen any vehicles use it in the first 3 hours...

    Methinks the Olympic officials are getting too self-important....

  11. I don't understand the M4 lane - as there is a weight limit of 7.5 tons on the elevated section, LOCOG/TfL cant take coaches over it,
    so the Heathrow Express would be better for anymore than a mini-bus load.

    Not very green, IMHO; which is what LOCOG are trying to push.

  12. It,ll all end in tears, mark my words you,ll see.
  13. That'll be that nice Lord Coe crying as the torch is inserted into his dry hoop.
