LOCOG bans parish magazine

Padraig Reidy of Index on Censorship reports that the Bondvillainesque organisers of the London 2012 Olympic Games have barred a village magazine from being sold along the route of the cycling road race at Box Hill in Surrey. The offending rag was to carry an article by Keith Brock, a member of Britain’s 1948 Olympic cycling team, with proceeds from the sale going to charity.
Yet another PR fail by LOCOG. Where will it all end?
