Iraq’s draft constitution: a recipe for neo-colonial rule

31-08-2005 13:49

The constitution that was endorsed by Iraq’s presidential council on Sunday, and is to be put to a referendum by October 15, is an outrage against the Iraqi people. From beginning to end, it has been written to advance US imperialist ambitions in the Middle East, notably long-term control over Iraq’s oil reserves and permanent military bases in the country.

Ryanair website calls noise restrictions 'nonsense'

31-08-2005 09:58

This is taken from Ryanair's website.

UK Government Proposals on Noise Restrictions will Deprive you of Low Fare Flights

The UK Government is currently proposing to increase noise restrictions at Stansted Airport, which threatens the growth of low fares flights for UK consumers. This is at a time when Ryanair and other low fare carriers are investing billions in quieter aircraft to reduce noise disruption.

We want our passengers to be aware of this nonsense regulation by the Government which, if implemented, will reduce your choice of low fares destinations and inevitably increase air fares.

Music, the metaphorical apocalypse of unobservant teenagers

30-08-2005 23:30

In High Fidelity I believe it to be accurately stated that adults may take extreme precautions to what children may view at the cinemas or on the internet. However they do not take the same care in the child' music tastes, yes the child may have slightly less volatile physical urges than other children but may listen to the most heart-breaking, sad and ultimately soul destroying music known to mankind.

This is why certain music should be sliced off mid-root before it can take
