Only “blue light” ambulances will be authorised to use the VIP lanes being installed for the Olympics in London this summer under the Games organisers’ diktat.
All hospital patients not deemed emergencies – kidney dialysis, cancer patients, disabled, elderly – will have to endure the expected road traffic log jam that the Games will bring to London. Unless of course you are a politician, VIP, athlete, official or sponsor such as Coca-Cola and McDonalds. In that case, you will have free access to the 30 miles of inner London VIP lanes using the “free” 4,000-vehicle BMW transport fleet.
Londoners will die and the NHS will teeter as planned health care provision is abandoned for the Olympics idiocy. Every Londoner going to hospital should invade the VIP lanes: health not the VIPs, boycott the Olympics! ■
