    London Party midnight 31/12/03 But you are not invited

    Ken Livingstone is planning a HUGE party for New Years Eve.
    with a MASSIVE fireworks display.....BUT..

    ...You are not invited.. ? He want's people to stay at home and
    watch the events on TV.

    He want's to prove London can put on a large event in the run up
    to the Olympic bid...

    If he cannot organise a party for Londoners on New Years Eve
    (with people). How is he going to organise The Olympic Games ???

    Perhaps an Olympic games with no spectators.....

    What a plank....
    If someone tells you it can't be done,
    it's probally because they don't know how.

    Thats because he is going to film you and use the footage for the next Big Brother.

    Its called cause and effect. Surely its better having the trains crammed then the roads. Its more efficient and causes less pollution.

    My bus stop is a request stop. It is not considered a main stop.

    Yet now, some mornings there are 30-40 people waiting there.
    People walk back up the bus route in the opposite direction
    they want to travel, just to get on a bus.

    My bus starts just 3-4 bus stops before mine, but the buses are so
    full, they do not even stop.

    At night when I return home, the situation is much worse.

    I live in Dulwich, S.E. London. There are no tube services.
    The nearest tube is at the far end of my journey...

    The situation is crazy....

    Wait... .... lemme see if I read this right.. He wants to have the Olympics in London.. so in order to do this, he's going to prove he can organize an event (please note; the Olympics is not some Chuck E Cheese birthday bash.. it's weeks and weeks long and involves thousands of people and perfect planning/timing)..

    Now.. this event he's organizing is going to somehow prove he can plan a multicultural competition.. Does anyone else not understand how throwing a televised party where everyone stays at home and watches on their TV is going to prove this? Who is going to show up for his party if everyone is at home watching on TV?

    Dick Clark throws a badass New Years Party every year, I don't see the Olympics in his backyard...
    ..tween this

    Ken Livingstone is a total **** Jockey..

    He has banned the feeding of pigeons by law.. and also highly insulted Presedent Bush on his visit and didn't give a Shnibbly...

    His position means he is representing London what right does he have to make us look like loosers to Americans? If I ever see him in person I'm gonna land him one on the Jaw..

    Grrr

    Think I'll shut up now..
