Between 4 am and 5:30 am this morning, the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit carried out a series of raids across Birmingham. Intelligence sources claim to have foiled an alleged terror plot to kidnap a serving Muslim soldier and film his 'summary execution'.

At a press conference this afternoon, Gold Commander David Shaw stated there were 8 arrests from 8 residences plus 4 commercial addresses and one more 9th arrest happened on the M6 in Birmingham. Those arrested are being detained in Coventry. Shaw claimed this morning's operation was the result of a months long operation involving a combination of different agencies.

Saddam Hussein’s Last Words: "To the Hell that is Iraq!?"

The execution was carried out, as a psychological weapon, to usher in sectarian violence and division throughout the Middle East. The timing also coincided with several announcements and news reports of war plans by the United States and Israel in regards to Syria and Iran. It is no coincidence that shortly after the execution, the U.S. President identified Syria and Iran as the enemies of Iraq and raided an Iranian Consulate in Iraqi Kurdistan.

Cambridge Uni threatens to close Portugese Language Dept.

31-01-2007 16:00

Banner as Petition!
It's been announced just this week that Cambridge University is planning to shut down the Portugese Language Department.

The University used particularly underhand methods to announce this, as no prior notice was given to students this was going to take place, unlike last year's announcement of the possible closure of the Architechture Dept (thwarted!), where it was announced as a POSSIBILITY, rather than a CERTAINTY several months in advance.

Royal Society for the Protection of Bitchin'

31-01-2007 11:53

Most people who contribute to the RSPB think of them as a 'conservation charity'. They are the least green charity around and from personal experience I'd say they care little for anything but their own wealth. The RSPB are in the news again opposing wind farms in the Western Isles, which has been the focus of their work there for the past few years. I should say, previous to that they did some good work, including reintroducing the sea eagle.

The Problem With...Being Normal

31-01-2007 09:59

Here is a small confession : I don't consider myself to be normal. I wish I was. I strive to save energy, reduce the damage I do to the planet and work hard to think of solutions to our environmental crisis. That is not normal. If it was, then I could probably carry on living with few cares in the world - except maybe what will happen to my children when they become teenagers!

East End of London points the way to Blair to save any remaining 'honour'

31-01-2007 05:18

Just as the London Metropolitan Police were fielding [on Tuesday 30 January 2007] of the huge media questions over the latest arrest Blair-peer Levy in connection with the cash for sleaze system that keeps some in the UK Parliament’s upper chamber the so-called House of Pee-ers, a deputation of people from probably the poorest, the most deprived part of inner city England, arrived at No 10 Downing Street. The deputation delivered a hand written letter giving Blair probably the most valuable and crucial advice anyone had ever given him whilst he was still in occupation of the post that is identified with that address, to save his fast disappearing legacy.
