The Stupid Side Of The Olympics

21 July 2012

The Daily Record:

Heavy-handed security chiefs will ban Olympic spectators for wearing the wrong brand of clothes, it emerged yesterday.

Games boss Sebation Coe warned anyone wearing a Pepsi T-shirt is likely to be booted out because it would upset sponsors Coca-Cola.

And he only said spectators in Nike trainers could probably¬Ě be allowed in although Adidas are also backing the event.

Coe defended the draconian move and said it was to protect corporate sponsors who have paid a fortune to be involved.

Such stupidity. If you go to a concert, the sponsors don’t censor your belongings as you enter. Governments have too much bureaucracy, bowing to every will of their “partners”.
