gets' of with a warning The spokesman stressed that "there was no suggestion Mr Cox had been directly involved in the money laundering operation". Well naturally whats the big three quarters of a million quid stashed in his back garden which was found by a special team from Kent investigating a mega money laundering scam which just happened to be run by his brother and nephew. You wouldn't want to waste money prosecuting a bent cop when you need every penny to harass and frame innocent demonstrators.

04-12-2004 15:04Ottawa (November 30) - George W. Bush paid a presidential visit to Ottawa. He was met with a massive anti-war demonstration. You could certainly feel this special energy emanating from the large crowd gathering at Ottawa’s City Hall at noon for a march to Parliament Hill to express their discontent or perhaps a better choice of words would be outrage at the visit from Bush.

04-12-2004 11:47Edinburgh University is having a referendum on affiliating to NUS, the National Union of Students. In the website http://wwwyes2nus.com the campaign for voting “yes” to join the NUS is presented, whilst on http://www.saneonline.org.uk the opposition is mobilising.
Currently the EUSA- the Edinburgh Union Student Association- is not affiliated to the NUS, though the two organisations were historically connected. It has not been a member since 1979, when students voted in a referendum to leave. A referendum in 1984 decided to maintain that position.
Voting was also possible online under http://www.esp.ed.ac.uk.

04-12-2004 07:42Is it not preferable for each one of us to be accountable and held responsible for our own actions? Should not Rumsfeld (prisoner abuse) and Kissinger (mass murder of civilians) be surrendered to the International Criminal Court of Justice for war crimes? Or should they hide behind the people – who are offered as targets instead?
04-12-2004 04:31All of this would be amusing but for the fact that people are dying. We would all like to ask Condy (her oil tankers notwithstanding) just what price Iraqi Oil against the life of one Iraqi child or one US citizen? Never in the history of the USA has it spawned a more dangerous group of clowns than George W and his neo-cons.
