LOLympics PART 2

It’s been a quiet couple of days for the LOLympics.

Seb Coe and LOCOG are arguing about whether spectators will be allowed entry to ticketed areas if wearing a Pepsi T-shirt. Coe says they (probably) can’t. LOCOG says they can. I say whoever can run off 20,000 Pepsi T-shirts in the next week will make a killing with the contrarians.

It’s also worth noting that Seb Coe (who tweets as @sebcoe) says that “athletes who use Twitter risk Olympic medal chances”. Given his track record during preparations for London 2012, it wouldn’t be paranoid to consider his words as a sinister threat to the likes of Kerron Clement, whose tweets of discontent I mentioned in LOLympics PART 1.

I have now to admit my credulity. When I saw this on Twitter I thought it was for real:

G4SLul1

It’s the work of a splendidly inventive joker, as I was quickly informed by multiple tweeps, including one claiming to represent G4S.

If nothing else, I claim fair play is reasonably assuming that this could easily be part of the M.O. of the monkeys that G4S deploy to these roles (parking enforcement etc).

It clearly has touched a nerve with G4S, or they’d never dignify it with a response, let alone have their Head of PR rebutt it.

So either way, >SNORK<.

    Clement’s complaints were – suspiciously quickly – followed by this:

    “Eating at the Olympic Village. Love the variety of food choices., african, caribbean, Halal cuisine, india and asian and of course McDonalds”

    What was that about a ‘sinister threat’…?

  2. London 2012 will be a total cock up.
