A bomb in a bun ?

Just when you think you have heard the last about security for the Olympics, along come more examples of just how crazy the whole thing is becoming …
Fancy taking your own food and drink to the Olympic Park ? .. Well think again ! .. because spectators will be banned, by airport-style security, from taking bottles of water into the area in case they are used to conceal .. Yes ! .. you guessed it ..”liquid-bombs”. Oh! .. and picnics and “excessive” amounts of food will also be banned from sports venues. I suppose that’s because of all those ‘burger-bombs’ and ‘Semtex’ sandwiches !
Of course all those “official vendors” inside the venues will be able to
rip you off supply you with all the junk food you can eat and all the fizzy fluids you need at grossly inflated prices.
Oh, Guess what ? … I just read that someone has smuggled a dummy ‘bomb’ into the Olympic Park ! .. Well that just had to happen. I bet it would have been spotted if it had been disguised as a muffin or an egg mayonnaise sandwich.
Still it’s nice to know that thousands of police officers from all over the country will be on duty in London during the ‘Games’ and seventy (Yes, seventy) specially trained ones will be guarding the torch, and that these
‘poor darlings’ brave volunteers will be offered counselling (I’m not making this up) at the end of the torch’s journey to help them ‘re-integrate’ into their normal roles.
I just hope that they don’t run into a bearded little man pushing a cart full of …
… halal hot-dogs !
