BLAIR brazenly out of steam in pushing for Crossrail hole on Brick Lane, E1

10-02-2006 18:23

Tony Blair’s terrifying fantasy in Blackpool today [after the Scottish by-election disaster at Dumfrimline, Friday 10 February 2006] echoing the equally chilling Margaret Hilda Roberts’s diabolically hypocritical invocation of Francis of Assisi cannot conceal the emptiness immorality and soullessness that dominate Blair’s agenda of piling deprivation on the already deprived and adding violations on the already violated. Nowhere can that agenda be found to be as wantonly on display as in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, which is being politically decimated by an overly Blarite cabal of sub-democratic touts bent on selling the East End to Big Business and their co-looters travelling in the Crossrail bandwagon towards looting the public purse of £20 billion as their class, coterie and kind had been allowed to do on a smaller scale of a mere £1 billion over the Millennium Dome. The East End is agog with anger against this Blairing Crossrail hole attack.
KHOODEELAAR! is the grassroots voice of that anger that the people of the East End feel at the prospect of the Crossrail planned hole right through the moist deprioved part of the inner city London. Transport Secretary Alistair Darling ahs been told today to stop the Crossrail hole plan altogether without delay.

Death in Plumstead. The Muslim demo that the corporate media ignored.

10-02-2006 16:41

Mourning a loved one.
Last Saturday the corporate media were going into an racist feeding frenzy at the Danish Embassy. Meanwhile a bigger (and just as angry) demonstration by Somali Muslims was taking place at Plumstead Police Station. It went unreported except for here, a left paper and a Somali youth magazine. It seems that the death of an innocent young man in suspicious circumstances is just not newsworthy if he is black.

Washington DC, Feb. 8 – The NATO intelligence provocation appearing in the guise of the scurrilous Mohammed cartoons published by the reactionary newspaper Jyllands Posten of Denmark, and then by a series of other European publications, has already done much to mobilize the armies, bases, and treasuries of Europe in support of the lunatic plan to the Bush-neocon clique for a nuclear sneak attack and punitive expedition against Iran over the coming weeks or months. As I warned in a red alert for synthetic terrorism issued on and other sites in the late afternoon of Feb. 3, this entire affair has been cynically orchestrated by NATO intelligence agencies to set the stage for a new world war.

The social threat of tracking technologies

Largish RFID tag - they are getting smaller...
Radio-frequency Identification (RFID) tags, using a tiny chip with an aerial that can be placed on just about any object, and having proved their usefulness for stock control in warehouses and supermarkets, are fast becoming a tool for state and corporate people-tracking.
