The Labour Government has now published its

Statutory Instrument 2009 No. 1573 - The Olympic Route Network Designation Order 2009

Made: 23rd June 2009

Laid before Parliament: 30th June 2009

Coming into force: 22nd July 2009


This designates a huge number of London streets (with a few in Weymouth, Dorset, where some of the sailing events are to be held), for abuse by foreign Olympic Games officials and corporate sponsors.

If you are a regular vehicle user of these roads, then get to the back of the queue, because you will be snooped on with Automatic Number Plate Recognition CCTV cameras, helicopters, aerial robot drones etc. so that the Olympics apparatchiki can enjoy Communist style Zil lanes, from which ordinary Londoners and the rest of the British public will be banned.

This will cause travel chaos for ordinary London road users.

Even if you are pedestrian or bicyclist, you will be subjected to the evil Advertising Monopoly on behalf of the Official Corporate Sponsors. Woe betide you if are wearing the "wrong" tee-shirt, hat , sports shoes etc.or are drinking the "wrong" brand soft drink or alcohol - you will be harassed by the jobsworth Security enforcers, and probably be arrested as a "guerrilla marketer" or terrorist etc.

The extent of the disruption to many of the main roads affected by this Order is staggering, especially since the athletes and officials are supposedly confined to the Olympic Village, close by the main sports arena venues, so it will mostly be alleged"VIPs" and "celebrities" who use them.

Anyone who thought that it would only be a few roads in the immediate vicinity of the Olympic Games sites, is in for a big shock.

The roads affected are:

Hints and Tips for Whistleblowers

There are many good people trapped in the bureaucracies which run London. If you are thinking about blowing the whistle on shadowy and powerful people in Government or commerce, and their dubious policies then you need be very careful these days. The mainstream media and bloggers also need to take simple precautions to help preserve the anonymity of their sources e.g.
