“It’s a damning statement that the Olympics has become so corporatised, and government so willing to bow down to money, that not only the name of this City that I live in, but the year that I live in have been declared owned by someone else. Grannies can’t bake cakes for their grandchildren’s school fete’s with olympic rings on them.
Knitting shops can’t put hula hoops in their window display to celebrate the upcoming summer games. Even the words “Summer Games” have been bought, removed from public use and now belong to a selection of companies such as McDonalds and Dow Chemicals. Seriously, this situation has to stop, it’s beyond parody.”
