Chatting with a steward outside Old Trafford we talked of the Olympic Stadium.
He told me about Old Trafford.
They get 75,000 people on a matchday- they know how to manage crowds.
The Olympic experience arrived in Manchester in the form of a recent rehearsal at the ground. The idea was to test Old Trafford’s capacity to manage an Olympic size crowd.
I asked him what he thought of the Olympic Security team.
I wonder whether , like the wasp trapped in the jar, the terrorist will escape twice as determined to wreak havoc.
More likely , the terrorist is putting his feet up , his work is already done.
