It’s the first working day of the Olympics. People having to go anywhere at all in London are braced for chaos and confusion, but Guru is going to make a bold and uncharacteristic prediction about travelling in London during the Olympics: it’s not going to be that bad. The whole Olympics travel thing has a whiff of the millennium bug about it, where a combination of good planning and unwarranted hysteria ensured that the public was left wondering what all the fuss was about.
Consequently, Guru recommends that employers be wary of any staff trying to capitalise on Olympics travel hysteria by asking to leave work early, or work from home or explain lateness with tales of tube carriages full of synchronised swimmers.
