Marina Hyde gave the Olympics a real kicking in The Guardian yesterday. She draws attention to something I didn’t know – namely that the Olympic Act 2006 makes it legal for the police to enter homes and forcibly remove ‘not just unauthorised advertising, but so-called “advertising of a non-commercial nature”, which liberties campaigners warn could include protest placards.’

So much of how the Olympics will run has already been decided. There seems very little room for manouveure or scope for directing anger at the Olympics in a positive way.
