  4. Brilliant

    so what they are really saying is the Olympics will be secured by students on their summer break and blokes who's jobs are menial enough for their employers to let them go on a month long piss up and barbeque.

  13. You're assuming a)The MOD has a plan and b)they're organised

  15. I know a couple of lads that have been pinged for this, despite not speaking English (They are Scottish you see) and not having supportive employers (one is self employed and cannot really afford not to do his "proper" job, the other one has been told by his boss that he has to take the time out of his holidays!)
