Military to be used for London Olympics next year!

I cannot for the life of me think why the media is getting so worked up about this news.Dear old Auntie BBC devoted nearly ten minutes of the 6 o'clock news this evening trying to suggest it was some kind of over-reaction to a non-existant threat.
If the UK had been the target of numerous terrorist attacks on public transport killing dozens of innocent civilians I could understand security being a top priority.......oh wait a minute,it has.Where did I hear about all these attacks and plots to kill further innocents?Oh yes,the BBC.
I couldn't give a tinker's cuss how many service personnel are deployed as long as every visitor going home from the Olympics is in the same rude health as that they arrived in.

Bollocks about summer leave. We've got before and after our 72 days hanging around Weymouth.

Oh come on you lot. Stop complaining. Think of all the super-fit, toned, bronzed sporty goddesses who are going to be wandering around the Olympic Village. Isn't that the epitome of a matelot's heaven?

There was an article in The Times about this a few years back - now it's gone all elitist, the nearest representation I can find is this:

It's not only hurdlers who get their legs over...

When the Olympics come around and they want security, volunteer to help out in the men's Javelin and stand between the 80 and 90 metre line.
I believe there is a sizeable cash bonus for every one you can catch before it sticks in the ground. Something to do with preventing dangerous weapons from falling into the hands of criminals or terrorists.

My unit have been told to expect compulsory mobilisation for the Olympics next year. But then again we do own London so it's to be expected.


The other day I was walking through the Olympic village and I saw an Orthodox Jew carrying a big stick.

So I said to him, ''Oh, you must be a Pole Vaulter.''

He replied in a thick Hebrew accent: ''No, I am Hungarian, but how did you know my name is Walter?''


I didn't bring a coat and my taxi is already outside.
