Not a word at the outset, in fact kept under wraps til now, the chaos the Olympics will cause to the folk who live nearby, with parking their cars, the movement around where they live and work, the getting to and fro, the do's and donts in their daily routine, one guy on telly will be housebound for the duration, a multiplicity of major cock ups from the admin will affect thousands of lives for the duration, I do feel sorry for Boris who will have to take the can back for Kens ill thought plan to gain popularity, and the millions of Londoners who are paying for it all albeit for, or against, the pensioners, the poor and needy, the locals who have to move over, and the rest of the Country who have to pay in the middle of a recession, for the traveling circus, only in England do these major blunders occur, even in 1948 while the rest of the world was rebuilding from the war years, we was just bubbling along without a care in the world, broke, skint, in debit, up the creek without a paddle, showing the world, if yah wanna see idiots, look no further than SW1. :o :roll: :? :o

Oi, watch it mate - I work in SW1 :) (but note, I am not saying you are wrong :roll: )

Anyway, it's only cost you - as a Londoner - the price of a walnut whip, so why are you moaning???

As for potential congestion, have a look here as TFL's day by day congestion planner. It shows all the Olympic roads, Olympic lanes and other turning & parking changes. It's gunna be a nightmare

Now add in the guys in little green canvas huts living in holes in the road, the stop/go boards on the diversion diversions, due to road works, on the burst water main, buses coming towards you that are diverted, into side streets, black cabs picking up none English speaking passengers that do a U turn in front of you, Visitors driving on the wrong side of the road, heading straight at you, the row of cones you will be directed into while some git with a clip board asks how many time do you use this particular road, where are you going, and why, the electric milk float, the 40 foot artic turning into your path going to where you just come from, and That's before you join the queue stuck behind a lorry unable to get under the low bridge, to the traffic lights that are out of order, and Red Ken with a megaphone crying nah nah nee nah nah, should have voted for me. while crowds gather with their wallnut whips to take the pee :roll: :roll: :roll:
