Much spluttering has been apparent about the fact it has been made known that the 'official' language of the games is French - although this has been public knowledge for decades, had anyone bothered to do some basic research.
However, what was not known were the number of draconian measures that will have to be adopted to ensure the games progress - and these measures are those dictated by the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

The irony is that those 'protesting' about the 'insult' - and additional costs - to Britain probably contain amongst their number some who where cheering when it was announced we had won the 2012 bid.
Just a thought..........
