The Secret Olympics? No photos!

In a remarkable – if not bizarre – twist to the Olympic Story, it will be against Olympic rules to tweet, share on Facebook or in any way share your photos of the event. Quite how this will be policed is beyond comprehension and one would hope police officers are not going to be expected to pursue anyone seen posting photos on Instagram.

Coming after moves to restrict public demonstrations, photographers being interrogated on public footpaths and concern around heavy handed commercial restrictions on what logos you can wear inside the Olympic village, this is yet another worrying development. Rather than being the celebration organisers promised, London 2012 is rapidly becoming one of the most intimidating and restrictive events seen for decades.
