A MET spokesman said: “Obviously this a blow to morale after our successes in Stockwell and Forest Gate, but we will learn from this and ensure that we are ready for them next time”. The incident happened when a protest was booked to support the PKK’s demands for human rights in Kurdistan. Bungling plods failed to notice that the PKK are illegal under recent terror legislation and so put already terrified Londoners lives at risk.
Life long Daily Mail reader Mrs Edna Agast said: “I don’t what my inheritance tax is going on? They clearly have not shot enough people yet, they only wounded the last one.

23-06-2006 09:09The Israeli government announced recently that it would restrict the right of Palestinian citizens who hold foreign passports, in addition to their required Israeli-issued ID and Palestinian passports, to live in Jerusalem, the future capital of the Palestinian state. The
government will require all Palestinian holders of foreign passports to leave the country every three months in order to obtain a visa, as is the case for any foreigner. Obtaining the visa is dependent on two factors: one is the mood of the soldiers on duty occupying the borders, and the second is what is written in the computer. Many foreigners and Palestinians have inexplicable black-marks next to their names, which makes their entry extremely difficult. Some are required to spend hours with Israeli interrogators before gaining entrance, while others are not allowed entrance at all. Others still breeze through without question.
