Make politicians, peers, the City and the media pay for £17bn Crossrail scam

13-02-2008 03:17

The Government and closet neocon and capitalist Ken Livingstone want taxpayers and fare payers to pay for Crossrail, the transport project that will benefit the City and Canary Wharf while leaving ordinary Londoners with the cost through general taxation and unnecessary harm arising from a project where the Government has appointed Bechtel and taxpaying thief Adrian Montague. Every politician, MEP, peer and local councillor who votes and supports Crossrail should be held personally financially liable to pay for anything in excess of what the Government claims it will cost. The House of Lords is now the next stage for this farcical Bill which is about to face a bit of a problem.

An excerpt from: 'AntiSemitism and other forms of racism'

12-02-2008 13:28

The main aim of this paper is to compare and contrast antiSemitism in Britain – particularly contemporary Britain – with other forms of racism. Most discussions of antiSemitism in Britain, and of the ‘Anglo’-Jewish community more generally, have taken place apart from mainstream writing on ‘race’ and ethnicity – that is, either within ‘Jewish studies’ fora and/or Jewish-oriented media. (However, see e.g. Cohen, P. 1988; Miles, 1993). That is, this topic has been somewhat ghettoised and therefore takes on the character of an internal debate (i.e. among Jews, or affiliated Jews).

Growing Insecurity in Timor Leste

12-02-2008 12:10

Timor-Leste’s President Jose Ramos-Horta was shot on 11 February by rebel soldiers in his house, a few miles outside the capital Dili. He is in a “critical but stable” condition, and he has been airlifted to Australia for further treatment. The failed coup was apparently led by Alfredo Reinado, a rebel soldier ho was himself killed in the attack. This incident is shocking, but shows how unstable the situation in Timor Leste still is. The “crisis” that started in 2006 is far from over, and Timor Leste’s security forces are unable to provide security. Not even for the acting President himself.

Deportatons to DRC have resumed!

12-02-2008 10:50

A week ago the appeal submitted
by the legal team responsible for the BK case on the
DRC was refused at the first stage. They are now preparing papers to take the appeal directly to the Court of Appeal. In the meantime, the Home Office have seized the opportunity to make up for lost time by detaining people going to sign and by
issuing them and people already in detention with removal directions.
