Dairy farmers threaten direct action.
At one time it must have appeared to the government that the Olympics, apart from such minor considerations as being a possible magnet for jihadist mentals and a certain magnet for the world community of dips, grifters and find the lady artists, apart from that the Olympics would be a win win scenario and an ideal way to take the minds of common people off the banking scam. Trouble is that the more the government bang on about all the wealth that the games will generate the more various groups will tend to think, "Great, where's our share? Let's use this as leverage to get a bit more in our pockets". Now dairy farmers, fed up with being paid less for a litre of milk than it costs to produce, are threatening direct action during the games. I foresee slow moving tractors clogging up the VIP lanes and herds of Holstein cattle trampling all over Danny Boyle's rustic tableaux. For the first time I'm starting to look forward to the Olympics.
