Eagerly awaiting 24th and 27th July when Kingston (I work there) gets shut down for the passage of the giant golden spliff and again on 28th & 29th for a bike race and yet again on 31st and 1st August for bike time trials (test only on 31st with "rolling road blocks/closures" but on 1st, all bridges closed from 5:30am). I thought this jamboree was supposed to be somewhere dahn the East End, not leafy Surrey.
Didn't they spend squillions of quid on a velodrome for velocipede stuff? And didn't it win some sort of award? Why don't they bloody use it instead of incommoding Sarf West London and Surrey.
Oh, and we get the Olympic tennis just up the road at Wimbledon, too. Now, we're used to Wimbledon fortnight, but they don't shut off most of the surrounding roads and stick fuck-off rocket batteries on Wimbledon Common, despite the routine attendance of international tennis glitterati and a Scotsman who starts the fortnight being British.
I swear, one day I'll have a rant about it.
