NOSHOW – Ring of ire short-circuits

NOGOE, the campaign group opposed to the use of Greenwich Park as an Olympic venue, staged a protest this weekend, which the BBC reported as “a ring around Greenwich Park.”

Darryl at 853 blog reckons they got a perfectly respectable turnout, but nowhere near the number they would have needed to form a human ring around Greenwich Park. Like the Teabaggers, they overstated their numbers, just as (as 853 blog notes) they have overstated the issues that the Olympics will create in the borough.

BC gets incredibly frustrated with dishonest alarmism from local prostest groups. Ultimately, it's self-defeating. Honesty - on all sides - is always the best policy.
