ChrisJBrady BS: Olympics - London's Shame (206* d) RE: BS: Olympics - London's Shame 19 Jul 12

The latest fiasco is that due to G4S (Group 4 Security - the company that reportedly loses prisoners) not being able to hire enough security staff - who will actually turn up for duty, many thousands of Brit. soldiers (fresh from putting their lives on the line in Afghanistan) and the Police are now being recruited to take their place.

Criminal gangs including pick-pockets and child-beggars are being shipped in from Romania to scam the unwitting tourists in London. They can make thousands a day. So with at least 3,000 police off the streets the Romanians and others are going to have a field day.

But the latest fiasco is that the Army and Police guys have now been told NOT to bring in packed food with brand-labels on other than those of the mega-corp. sponsors (mainly McDonalds and Cadburys). Apparently these guys are being subjected to the same rules about no food and no drink that the long-suffering public will soon have imposed upon them. And hard-luck if any of the guys need to get cash because ALL ATMs surrounding ALL venues have been blocked form taking Master Card, AMEX, whatever - except for VISA(another mega-corp. sponsor).

The other scandal to hit these shores is that a whole crowd of American TSAs are going to start working at OUR airports. Not only content with intimately body patting hapless airline and rail passengers in the US, they are now going to bring their brand of physical abuse to the UK.
