SOCPA - judge trashes human rights "because she can"

11-09-2006 19:34

judge wright, when asked by barbara tucker's barrister why she was setting bail conditions that were unprecedented and 'unheard of', replied 'because i can'. today, the simple action of standing alone with a banner decrying blair's war-crimes has been criminalised not just in the designated zone, but even elsewhere, on penalty of imprisonment. this is way beyond even the original contentious socpa powers and marks a further sinister attack on protest.

Following revelations from the US that the neocons orchestrated the attacks for 911 as an excuse for its raft of invasions in the US. I also have lots of questions about 7/7. What has happened about a proper enquiry? Why were a group of Israeli's told not to come to a meeting in Liverpool St on the morning of the bombs as reported in the Evening Standard but not followed up? Why was the police getting its information from the media and working out its response accordingly? If Tony Blair is so closely allied to George Bush and thinks nothing of innocent people dying in Iraq and Lebanon, why not here? What were security people doing working out what to do if a bomb was on the tube only weeks earlier. For the US story, see the following:

Will Clinton, Berger and Albright threaten the BBC with a libel suit?

09-09-2006 18:28

As you know, the BBC is planning to show Disney/ABC's defamatory "Path to 9/11" program in the UK on Sunday. I'm told by a friend that under UK libel laws there is no public person defense and damages and costs can both be in the millions. And, "British libel laws are considered pro-plaintiff, meaning that the defendant must prove that she or he did not commit libel."

The Law is an Ass, by Philip Ruddock

09-09-2006 10:18

Philip Ruddock, Australian Attorney General, announced today that a broader range of people in the Australian community (non-Muslims) are to be targeted as “terrorists!” Ruddock also stated that persons who are not ‘terrorists’ need not be alarmed as his new wider classification should not concern ‘them’(?)

Australian citizens are left to conclude that the determination of who exactly is a terrorist has become an arbitrary prerogative of the Attorney General and his gang of enforcers! Whatever happened to due process, innocent until PROVEN guilty? {God help that journalist who stepped on Ruddock’s toe, he will be the first to go!) It is not coincidental that the Bush regime also found due process to be an inconvenience. Ruddock’s logic and methods reek of neo-con methods, Guantanamo (Torture) Bay and Bush regime criminal methodologies have found expression in Oz.
