Welcome to ZiLondon

On BBC Newsnight last year (broadcast date 26 July 2011) Will Self savaged the boosterism and elitism of the 2012 London Olympic Games. One of the most disgusting manifestations of London 2012 elitism is the network of ZiL lanes planned for the exclusive use of Olympic freeloaders and shysters.

As well as uncovering details of the Games’ rigged ticketing system, a Channel 4 Dispatches television show (broadcast a few days ago) found evidence that people could be buying access to the ZiL lanes. If there isn’t vigorous public opposition to private lanes for Olympic nonentities, they could end up as permanent fixtures under the banner of road pricing.
