ChrisJBrady BS: Olympics - London's Shame (206* d) RE: BS: Olympics - London's Shame 20 Jul 12


Latest shen:

Watched a report last on the BBC Midlands that a wheelchair bound guy can't get tickets for the Disabled Games.......because he is in a wheelchair!!!!! They apparently cannot accommodate anyone in a wheelchair because they did not expect to receive requests from someone disabled!!!!! It is suspected that the real reason is that tickets are being held back for Dignitaries and V.I.P.'s. Ben Elton couldn't have wrote a funnier script at the height of his Blackadder fame! These Games get sadder by the day.

AND all venues which normally host other sporting events and were not built specifically for the Games have had to be "debranded", with all traces of rival companies removed or covered up.

Sky News filmed at the Ricoh Arena, which has had to be renamed The City of Coventry stadium for the Olympics.

The Japanese electronics firm has a long-term naming-rights deal at the stadium, but all of its logos have been erased.

Black seats which spell out the Ricoh name in the main stand have been covered up, and masking tape has been stuck over beer and soft drinks signs in the concourse where food and drink is sold.

Black tape has even covered up the soap dispensers in the toilets.
