Games hype

It seems as if half the country is already sick to death of the games taking place in London (and other venues) later this summer. The draconian IP-style protection given to the event's own signs, compounded by the ludicrous degree of protection given to the main sponsors, is a huge turn-off. Such a pity, as the sporting events will be wonderful and I will enjoy watching many of them - on the television.

What I will not enjoy doing is trying to get to work. At Paddington the other evening I was offered a leaflet explaining alternative forms of transport (which, in the modern age, include Shanks's pony), but I prefer to telecommute if I can. Thanks to this excellent piece by Philip Stephens in the FT I now understand that this is what the powers-that-be want me to do.
