Sid, the intriguing homeless man who resides in a little shanty shack by my work, appears to have been move on by a load of London 2012 Olympic media ruffians!!!!
The Olympic torch is due to pass through Croydon on Monday the 23rd of July, 2012; Patrick Stewart will be carrying it during the final stage before it goes on to Bromley and it looks like a camera and security crew have set up a temporary base of operations in the vacant lot that Sid considers his front yard!
Two cars turned up initially and a ground crew of three people bagged up all of Sid’s rubbish. It took him ages to make that much mess! Have they no heart???
For all intents and purposes, it looks like Sid has been evicted and it remains to be seen whether our mysterious lodger will return to his estate or not.
Either that or they have picked Sid to be a torchbearer? I suppose that would be a great ‘lefty’ BBC News story wouldn’t it folks?
LOCAL HOMELESS MAN CARRIES OLYMPIC FLAME!
Come back Sid, we’d all miss you if you vanished 😦
