After some recent discussion on whether a local critical mass group should set up an account on the social networking site MySpace, some interesting things came to light. The amount of activist and campaign groups using the social networking site is growing. These groups include not only critical mass groups in London, Oxford and Manchester and anarchists from Norwich, Gwent, Ipswich but also bigger initiatives like Earth First (1) | (2), Plane Stupid, the Anarchist Federation (1) | (2) and the Cowley Club in Brighton.

The news about London's chief self-promoter Livingstone's 'deputy', Nicky Gavron, running up huge bills in transporting herself in truly offensively indolent, indulgent style, just confirms how corrupt the entire lot at the Cxxx all is and why the community ourselves have to do what we can to stop these abusers taking the people of London for granted

15-02-2007 05:15Alan Little, like Fergal Keane, is one of those over-hyped so-called leftie BBC-platformed 'thinking journalists' that form what can only be called the Polly Toynbee operation against the Muslims of the world. No matter how solid the evidence that Muslims are innocent, Polly Toynbee [who has been given platform by the arch poisonous and racist Guardian, London] will find something somehow that will show the Muslims to be at fault.
