The Olympics may be a 20-minute train ride from my doorstep but my excitement
level as to its coming has yet to reach the lazy lob stage.
How comforting to know that another £40m - apparently from within the original
budget - has been found to improve on the fireworks, before and after.
And the security bill has now reached over half a billion with 23,700 security staff
needed. I would love to see a break down on costs for that.
If they are paid £100 a day for both events that would come to say £60m, although
I cannot believe any self respecting terrorist would hit the paralympics, not exactly
high profile for a takedown of the Great Satan's lapdog...
I do hope I am wrong but the travelling will be a nightmare considering the siting of
the Olympic village so close to the City. Coming from my manor, to the east, won't
be too bad as most peeps will get there after the rush hour and few tourists will come
in that way because there is little accommodation that side of town...but coming from
the West...it's gonna by mayhem. Oh, and as for the evenings in the summer....
I shall be renting Chez Quixote out to some rich Yank and piss off to the Costa Dorada
for the month.
Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.
