So, not only do London's motorists have to pay congestion charges, face a crippling bill for the Olympics but it's now official that many roads will be cleared to allow Olympic officals to get where they want to be without hindrance.
That means massive congestion and inconvenience for the rest of us.
Mind you, there are quite a few motorways affected so it should all be very interesting.
It's like being in the old Soviet Union when the top brass had their own lanes. Will Zanu Labour keep the lanes for themselves and their 'friends'??
Oh and to cap it all the government yesterday announced a £350 tax for parking at work.
Are there no depths to which wee Gordon Clown will not stoop for cash?
