I am going to the Olympics

Not as a participant, but as a spectator.  I wouldn't normally waste any money on a glorified sports day - who really cares about the trap shoot, taekwondo or women's archery, apart from their mums of course - but a kind soul has given me tickets to the tennis, so I shall be going along , but I shall resolve to do as much as I can to disrupt the ludicrous security arrangements.

First of all I will be smuggling in 101 ml of liquid, although I will be having a second go at the rules on liquids by taking in a bottle of frozen water inside a polystyrene container.  Some dry ice should ensure that the contents of the bottle stay below freezing.

If that is foiled, then I shall be having a go at the rule that says you are not allowed to bring in "flags of countries not participating in the Games (this excludes the flags of nations under the umbrella of a participating country such as England, Scotland and Wales)".

OK, so which of the following are not coming to London 2012: Equatorial Guinea, Netherlands Antilles, Mauritania, Kiribati, São Tomé and Príncipe, Timor-Leste, Vatican City?

If I mosey up armed with my Dorling Kindersley World Flags Ultimate Sticker Book, are they really going to strip out the offending items?

Beware, they don't like it up 'em. Corporal Jones may well be on parade.
