London fare rises pay for city rail scheme Crossrail - Mayors new Olympic tax

08-09-2008 17:18

Crossrail is a scheme that will benefit the City and Canary Wharf and commuters coming into London and yet Londoners will be left paying for it both in cost and harm. The City thinks ordinary Londoners should pay for it. The Mayor agrees but do the people? If you do not think your fares should increase to pay for a rail scheme that will benefit the richest part of London, find out more about the Crossrail scheme and find out if your local politician supports it?

CUBA: Besieged by hurricanes

08-09-2008 11:03

We had hardly recovered from the emotional impact and material damages caused by the unexpectedly strong winds of hurricane Gustav on the Isla de la Juventud and Pinar del Rio, when news were received of sea floods caused by Hanna. Then, the worst news of all: that the very intense hurricane Ike, turning southwest under pressure from a strong anti-hurricane system located north of its course, would strike heavily over 625 miles throughout the national territory.
