Heard about the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill? Tedium personified by the sound of it. In fact concealed under this yawn inducing title is possibly the biggest goosestep towards a totally authoritarian society the Blair oligarchy has yet dared to take.

05-03-2006 22:31

The threat posed to the East End of London by the UK Hosue of Commons draft piece of legislation, the CROSSRAIL Bill, goes beyond the planned destruction of entire communities and neighbourhoods.

The fraudulent General Election of 2005
This farce has to end. My views, and those of millions of others, are barely whimpers in the shouting-matches going on in Parliament. Given what we face in terms of climate change, we cannot afford the luxury of this right-wing Parliament which is in utter, utter denial.

The 9/11 - Israeli Spy Connection

05-03-2006 19:47

These are the videos AIPAC lobbied FOX News to remove from their website. Since then, AIPAC has found itself embroiled in yet another espionage case, this time involving an operative inside the very Pentagon office from which many of the now discredited claims abut Iraq's WMD.
