Them and Us

Remember the old Soviet Union with their 'government only Zil lanes' for traffic? Well it does appear that our 'Ruling Class' do indeed consider themselves worthy of special privilege!

As has been revealed today, for those of us who may wish to attend the 2012 Olympics it seems we will not be having an easy journey and that if we 'lose our way' we may well find ourselves with a fine of up to £5,000. Can you imagine the scene - the ordinary people who have paid the billions for the Olympics are forced to sit in traffic jams whilst the apparatchiks in their taxpayer-funded cars, fuelled by travel allowances, sweep past in their private, jam-free lanes?

We already have a serious divide between the taxpaying public and the growing class of quangocrats, public sector executives and politicians who live off them. People in the private sector pay more into public pensions than they do into their own retirement funds. Those who fail in the public sector rarely face the consequences, and even enjoy massive payoffs when they do step down.

The development of a chasm between the public sector elite and taxpayers in Britain has always been an outrage, but this will bring it to life and make it flesh. Not only have you been charged heavily for the Olympics, here's a slap in the chops to drive home exactly how much the establishment takes you for granted.
