"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Olympic Stadium Or Ripe For Demolition?

Andrew Boff, the spokesman for Olympics 2012 on the London Assembly, has said that unless a viable buyer is found for the complex it will have to be demolished.  How many billions is it costing the country?  I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

  1. But GV why the surprise? Remember it is a political scheme and how many such 'schemes' have there been in the past and havte then had to be 'demolished'?

    Education, health, law & order, New Labour, the Consrvative party, sovereignty, referendums? Where does one stop?

    Its a game with only one loser - us!

  2. Sell it to the Justice department for use as a holding pen for all the bad people; selling seats to the great and the good to jeer and condemn would make it self-financing in a very modern way.

  3. Boff is a Conservative and well known for his overall opposition to the scheme Mr W. He could be scare-mongering. It's too early in the day for me to think about all the things you mention :-)

  4. Funny you should say that, Banned. I did a post a few weeks ago about the erection of an enormous flood-lit wire fence and implied the same thing about a holding pen - isn't that what they use football stadia for in places like Iran?

  5. I'm not sure which nasty regime gave me the hint GV, it has happened in lots of places and we might as well too as we slither into the ranks of the third world.

  6. Cameron seems to be doing his best to pull us back up, Banned - superficially at least. The problem I'm finding so far is that his actions don't match his rhetoric and I find that worrying.

  7. It seems all politicians suffer from the disease 'uselessness'. Cameron and Clegg have promised change and if I remember rightly quick change! So far nothing, we should the stadium as a humiliation pit for politicians!
