Gaddafi gets 1000 tickets to the London Olympics


Troll alert, while swimmers get to buy tickets for only one family member at the London 2012 Aquatics Centre, and others like Rebecca Adlington’s parents have been cheated out of theirs, the Libyan regime has successfully requested close to 1,000 tickets, co-ordinated by the Gaddafi family. The Mayor of London describes is as “successful” that he himself didn’t get a ticket, while The Telegraph now speculates that Col. Gaddafi himself may try to disrupt the event as a publicity coup, if he remains in power in 2012.

Update: The Guardian writes here that the Libyan tickets will be held back until closer to London 2012, and that no Gaddafi will be let into the country. Via Gold Medal Mel.
