Stop 'Double Punishment' of Foreign nationals

16-03-2009 12:24

There are approximately 12,000 foreign nationals in the UK prison system

It is a fundamental principle of UK law that a person cannot be punished twice for the same offence.

16-03-2009 02:53

Therefore, we can once again look to the holy trinity of science, technology, and capitalism for our salvation. Interspecies chimeras, laboratory-created genetic crosses between two unique animal species, can rain “meat” down upon us like manna from heaven. Since 2003, researchers have successfully formed chimeric embryos by fusing human animals with three different nonhuman animals: rabbits, sheep, and cows.

15-03-2009 20:28

As the summer of 2009 approaches, the village of Kala Dera in north India is bracing itself for yet another season of acute water shortages – thanks largely to Coca-Cola. Coca-Cola should never have located its bottling plant in a drought prone area which had already been declared as overexploited by the government. It was malfeasance on the part of Coca-Cola to locate its plant in such a water-deficit area, and it was a grave mistake on the part of the Indian government to allow the plant to be located in Kala Dera.
