in that spirit of christmas past

So, ever so slowly, slowly, slowly it's beginning to hit the public consciousness that certain of our civil liberties will be p*ssed upon from the great on high during the Olympics. And whether it's Collapsonomics-wrought inflation, or perhaps that the Summer Games attracts a higher premium than the Winter Games in any event, but those penalties have gone up markedly!

Thanks go to @Infil00p and to @jonesj for pointing to the archived record for Vancouver 2010 when it stood at a paltry $10,000(Canadian?). But faster, stronger, higher or whatever, it'll now (potentially) sting you for up to 20,000 quid - putting an anti-Olympics poster in your window, that is.
@copwatcher has more and, to celebrate, launches the anti-Olympics poster competition.
