Vigilantes? Police? Guards? Security?
I swear the pic above has not been photoshopped.
Q.What are we to call people who ride around in an Olympic vehicle called Vigilant?
A. Olympic Vigilantes.
The new name for the Olympic patrol boat is Vigilant! You can't make it up can you?
Long ago I asked the community liaison person what the point of the Olympic patrols were - and she said that it was 'just a presence'. Whatever that meant.
The black jacket that Pokemon left right next to the electric fence as a test - was prodded a bit - but then just left. It has been there for 39 days now - and still just lies next to the fence.
What purpose do these vigilantes serve? Why are they actually patrolling our border with the Olympic Park? What use do they have?
If they were patrolling inside the park - then you could understand that they were guards for the building equipment - which would probably cost a few pounds.
But they are on our river, on our towpath, on our cycle path. What are we meant to think about that? If they picked up litter (or large 'discarded' jackets) - now then - they would have a use.
