Lots of people from all walks of life have put huge efforts into making this event a success - To even hint (if the report is true) that the Olympics could be targeted in strike action by 'Unite' I feel is pretty dreadful.
Reading up briefly on 'Lens' background I do wonder if he has an hidden agenda? I really thought we had found better ways of sorting problems out in this country & thinking back years to 'the winter of discontent' do we really want to go down that road again? I remember it & all saw where it led to. I remember the headline - 'Britain Sick Man Of Europe'.
Though looking on the comments on the BBC page it seems that people way to the left of Lenin are still alive & well & using the internet! There is a time & a place for everything perhaps. The Olympics 2012 are neither the time or the place & decent members of 'Unite' should remove this man pronto. Have a bit of national pride Len, or maybe you are?
Well I'm simultaneously unsurprised and uncaring. I realise it may be an unpopular viewpoint, but I am totally opposed to the games. And I wonder just how many people who wanted the games in the first place would have been quite so enthusiastic if the current (and rising) estimate of costs would have been put about in the first place.
As for this latest thing, its just one more bunch of people on the make, looking to get what they can out of this extravaganza and to heck with everyone else.
I just thank my lucky stars that I don't live anywhere near london, and will be avoiding it as much as work permits while the games are on.
I'm afraid that the 2012 london olmpics will have three associations for me. The vast sums of money spent so the good and the great can lord it over the rest of us while they have their jolly, the huge disruptions it causes and lastly (but by no means least) the fact that london won the games the day before the 7/7 bombings.
