Olympics Zil Lanes Deactivated

It seems that, quite rightly, those organising the London Olympics have realised that the Olympics Zil road lanes (designated for use only by Olympics VIPs) may not be so popular with the "working masses".

As such, Boris Johnson has just announced that some of the lanes have been turned off.

As per ITV :
"London's mayor has said that "a lot" of the Olympic Games lanes have been "turned off". He was speaking on his way out of the daily COBRA meeting of security officials. There will be more details shortly.

He added that even the head of the International Olympic Committee, Jacques Rogge, has refused to use the lanes that are specially designated for Games officials and athletes."
Quite right!

However, as Christie Malry has just pointed out:
"Zil lanes exist solely to get officials to the Games quickly. Seatgate shows they're not going to the Games!"
Quite so!
