Anyone have a scooby-doo clue what Ken and his cohorts are up to now?

As informed by grassroot group Scotland Against Criminalising Communities, our lefty lawyer Aamer Anwar is likely to face contempt of court charges for disagreeing with the judge in the Siddique "terrorism" case.

At Edinburgh High Court - 23rd of October, Lord Carloway sentenced Mohammed Atif Siddique - convicted last month of "terrorism" offences - to a total of 8 years in jail.

Why did Crossrail hole plot-backer Tory Theresa May stay silent on C4 News?

08-11-2007 13:14

Berkshire Tory MP [and David Cameron’s sparkly-shoed ‘shadow; to Harriet Harman’ in the UK House of Commons] Theresa May appeared on C4 news to 'review' the then just delivered 'queen's speech' earlier this week. She did not even mention Crossrail as far as could be observed. Yet she has been making a lot of 'local noise' in and around Maidenhead, within hearing distance of voters, that she believes the area will be left to rot in economic wasteland unless the Crossrail line is extended to cover the rest of the country to the west of Paddington!

So why Theresa’s silence on Crossrail when appearing on Channel 4 news within hours of the formal ‘inclusion’ in the 'Queen’s Speech’ of the Crossrail Bill?

Was it to do with Channel 4 News’s belated recognition, recorded in October 2007, that Crossrail was indeed CRASS? That Gordon Brown had given the so-called go-head AGAINST the advice of Brown’s own ‘expert’ on UK transport economics, Rod Eddington?

As if that were not enough, there is now confession by ‘Dr B Ching’ in ‘Private Eye’ [dated 9 November 2007] itself, that Gordon Brown has not given any spontaneous go-ahead to Crossrail on any merit whatever but that it is a package that has been secured via the influence linked with Douglas Alexander and the employment of his former parliamentary secretary by the USA conglomerate Bechtel……..
