Someone told Lance they were going to burn him in effigy, he said, "That's one town I am going to steer clear of!"

I bet George Osborne was relieved.

I actually saw this first on the American site, where they said that they wouldn't be allowed to do it in America... Don't know how true or not that view is.

Ah! America. What did that electioneering politician call it? "The land of the Free", he should have added, well 99% of us are free. The rest are in jail.

According to the BBC report I saw on this, the organisers thought Jimmy Savile was a bit near the knuckle given the number of kids at bonfire night.  Besides, Lance Armstrong wearing a Jim'll Fix It badge is juxtapositional genius, given the ''but all that good work for charity'' angle.
