These photos were taken earlier this morning from a location which is normally jammed packed with cars, buses, taxis, cyclists, pedestrians etc etc etc…..get the picture?
Granted that there are no on going road works during the London 2012 Olympics but the message seems to have got through. Londoner’s have been scared away from the City. Olympic games lanes are empty, hotel rooms are unoccupied, some landlords have been left high and dry as they struggle to find “Olympic” tenants.
A classic case of being too greedy? Best of all though, overpriced Black taxi are driving around empty, maybe they need to be less greedy too and reduce their prices.
Notwithstanding this, no doubt in a few weeks time we will be told by the Olympic authorities, politicians and transport officials that everything went according to plan and the Games were a huge success!
Not sure that all British businesses will agree.
Common sense, don’t hold the Olympics in your City without it.

Sam Trickett, 26, attacked by six men in Las Vegas – just hours after winning £6.5m in poker tournament | Mail Online
In a seemingly motive less attack, a British poker champion was attacked in Las Vegas after winning $10m
That’s almost as much money as you can earn being a plumber!
But seriously, it’s a despicable act of cowardice, 6 v 1, nevertheless the moral of the story is:
Common sense, don’t win $10m without employing a personal bodyguard.
Having had a nice sunny break in Los Cabos, it’s off to Rome for a spot of lunch before the weekend. What about some tasty foccacia, a nice antipasto, followed by Osso Bucco all washed down with a nice bottle of Chianti.
Make sure to leave some space for gelato, after the summit?
You guessed it, the taxpayer again, unless you were shrewd enough to be involved with K2 in Jersey of course.
Greece must be austere or face the consequences…bing bong…last call for Los Cabos #austerity #hypocrisy http://wp.me/ p2axt5-ij
How many world leaders, security, ministers, advisers and staff are staying in Baja?
It’s a bit of a mickey take when we hear that Greek civil servants aren’t being paid, Spain is on the edge of a precipice and the Euro is on the verge of collapse. Never mind it will soon be time to take a summer recess!
