Oh dear what a shame - Olympic tickets all gone
Lawks a mercy! Oh my ears and whiskers. It seems the UK's complete allocation of Olympics tickets has ended, and no more are available. And there was me all agog to see the women's 400m weightlifting and the high-board cycling hurdles. I was actually looking forward to having my can of Pepsi confiscated and my Nike T-Shirt duct-taped by the ODA's boot boys at the gate, quite happy to be held in a side road for hours in the August heat as the Zil Lane is kept free for some chiselling crook of an IOC official to sweep through, more than satisfied that all the 'Ind Coope' and 'Courage' gable walls in London would be replaced with Heineken ads. Still, there are compensations. The estimated 10,000 Lithuanian tarts setting up shop in East London for the event are keeping rents high and no doubt East Londoners are enjoying the benefits of the acclimatisation period and discount training events.
