Is British Airways Warning The People of The UK About The Olympics? VIDEO



DON’T FLY. SUPPORT TEAM GB

Now that would be fine in my opinion if it was say Coca-Cola or Walmart or the likes but this is a company that 100% relies of persons flying to operate. This is like a Taxi company telling everyone to walk rather than take a Taxi.



Londons Calling (Choice of song)

Now that war is declared-and battle come down
London calling to the underworld



London Calling is apocalyptic, written right after Three Mile Island partial meltdown in 1979. (In Clampdown, on the same album, they sing, 'Working hard in Harrisburg (closest town to TMI), working hard in Petersburg (site of a Russian nuclear institute) ... begging to be melted down..."). Engines were theorized to stop running during a nuclear attack - don't know if people still believe that.

In London, anything close to the Thames would be underwater during a flood caused by sea level rise or nuclear meltdown or any other reason, thus, you'd be the first to go. So no need to fear.

Other apocalyptic images include the Sun becoming a red giant, an ice age taking place, and mass starvation. Not a pretty sight.


The lyrics reflect the concern felt by Strummer about world events with the reference to "a nuclear error" to the incident at Three Mile Island, which occurred earlier in 1979. Joe Strummer has said: "We felt that we were struggling about to slip down a slope or something, grasping with our fingernails. And there was no one there to help us."

The line "London is drowning / And I live by the river" comes from concerns that if the River Thames flooded, most of central London would drown, something that led to the construction of the Thames Barrier.[3][4] Strummer's concern for police brutality is evident through the lines "We ain't got no swing / Except for the ring of that truncheon thing" as the Metropolitan Police at the time had a truncheon as standard issued equipment.

London 2012 officials have insisted there is no health risk after learning part of the planned Olympic Park is on the site of a former nuclear reactor.

find it really weird that the song is talking of war and a battlezone, of a nuclear error, unsettling at least seen as though at the end of the advert, 3 planes are seen just outside the olympic stadium and the site it built on a former nuclear site.

The potential dates from Big Ben are 7/8 and 8/8, as pointed out by a previous poster.

Also worth noting that the song is in reference to the BBC's WW2 announcements.

Re: Is British Airways Warning The People of The UK About The Olympics? VIDEO
In my opinion I think they're trying to say "Don't go away, support your team" like don't go on holiday or something. But that's stretching the whole DON'T FLY thing as far as I can think.

There's only two ways to say DON'T FLY 1. Stay here and support your country and 2. WATCH THE FUCK OUT!!!

I dunno OP, maybe if it is a warning there could be clues!! nice thread man

I was asking myself the exact same questions that youve asked here. Why indeed are they telling us not to fly? Dont go on holiday, stay here and die?

Then the son of choice. London Calling. Well OP, youve said it all already on that one.

So STRAIGHT in our faces...... there is no multi-level thinking (like he thinks that I think that he thinks that I think he thinks that I think......)

For the lazy-zombie-fat people staring at their cute black boxes in their homes they just have to R E A D "Don't Fly"....

You'd better guess WHY and WHAT might happen if you would...

it's pretty scary imo. What with the "Black jack" thread too (My website was linked on the other thread (pigs in the parlor)

SONG:

Now that war is declared-and battle come down
London calling to the underworld


"Underworld" is the opening act at the Games! Underworld's collaborations with Boyle extend from his 1996 film Trainspotting to his recent staging of Frankenstein.

Boyle described the duo's appointment as "the final piece of the jigsaw". I feel like going on holiday when the games start




Now I’m not a rocket scientist or mathematician but if I were the CEO and this advert landed on my desk for approval I would say this…

“Yes, air it but remove the DON’T FLY part and just have SUPPORT TEAM GB”. British Airways also host internal flights from Scotland to England to Wales to Ireland so why are they saying DON’T FLY?

They are talking to idiots like you that are always looking for signs.

ie you prob think you are part of the revolution and if you go to London, you can help the cause.

Its a trap.

Anyone who turns up in London and acts a little bit suspicious/anxious, will be taken away and never seen again.

Re: Is British Airways Warning The People of The UK About The Olympics? VIDEO
Like many of the tracks on London Calling — including "The Card Cheat", "Revolution Rock", and "Jimmy Jazz" — the song doesn't end by resolving strongly to the tonic or fading out, as most rock and roll songs do. Instead, it breaks down eerily, with Joe Strummer's cryptic last words "I never felt so much a-like..." echoing over Morse code feedback (the characters spelling out S-O-S).

It just means help pick up the British economy by not going on holiday to spend your money, spend it here during the games while we make MORE history for this shit country. There probably will be doom, but your small minds assume this is a warning. Please think outside the box and see it from a different perspective, as you're just being absolutely ridiculous.

The thing I find strange is that they know most people on these Isles want to get as far away from the Olympics as possible... so not tapping into that deep sentiment of hating things like the Olympics is a wasted opportunity for BA, but perhaps the simply reason is they know they can not handle the number of people wanting to come see the Olympics and the number that want to escape the madness otherwise things will be *cough* dead quiet for them after it has finished..

I tpyed in CRT 346Y in google images. The very first image is a picture of Saint Christopher.
St.Christopher is a widely popular saint, especially revered by athletes
He holds patronage of things related to travel and travelers
In England, there are more wall paintings of St. Christopher than of any other saint
