Nothing to do with Coe or 2012 either, other than the fact that they pulled 'London 2012' etc. in with the other protected words - restrictions on use of the Olympic symbols/related protected words have been around for ages.
The concerns I have is that the whole Olympic Committee are as corrupt as hell, Coe's got his nose in the trough, the two biggest sponsors are major contributors to obesity in this country, I am being told where I should go/shouldn't go and at what times I should do it, I will be paying for it for years to come, the original cost has ballooned to four times it's original estimate, etc etc.
My original post was actually just a light hearted swipe at the corporate greed of the Olympics. I wouldn't take it too much to heart ADT. You will have your bread and circuses and I hope you have a wonderful time.
