London Olympics judge's limo just went past the EL Gazette office
Just arrived at work on Day 4 of the London Olympics. As I turned off Leman Street into the backstreets of Aldgate where EL Gazette's office is, an official black BMW of the London Olympics went past.
My source who does massage at the Olympic Press Centre heard - via a driver who was in the (long) queue for accreditation passes - that the judges refused to stay in their purpose-built accommodation at the Olympic Village, and could they stay in the luxury Dorchester Hotel instead, please. There is now a fleet of these black BMWs with green Olympic logos ferrying Olympic judges from the Dorchester to points around the Olympic City.
