The London Olympics are going to be, um, interesting.
First, the private company engaged to provide security--because corporations are better at providing services than government--made a boo-boo and may be short, I dunno, about four or five thousand or more security personnel. So the government is sending in 3,500 more soldiers to march around town. That should make the event really festive. But then there's this: Home Office staff vote to strike over jobs and pay. Home Office includes immigration and Border Agency staff. Oh dear. David Cameron is the Brits' slightly smarter version of W. Sad to think he may be replaced with Ed Miliband, Labour's low rent version of Obama. Man, faded empires suck.
