It's now to be refered to the county court for a judgement this coming Friday.

Council announces ridiculous move in anti-begging campaign

28-02-2006 22:57

Should this man be treated like a criminal?

Nottingham City Council has announced a new measure to reduce the 'problem of begging' on Nottinghams streets. A press release given out yesterday (Feb 27th) states: 'Nottingham City Council is urging members of the public to help them eliminate begging in the city by erecting signs in begging hotspots telling them to call the anti-social behaviour helpline if they see individuals begging'

The Council's 'respect for Nottingham' website states: The aim of the Respect for Nottingham strategy is to clean up the City’s streets, take an uncompromising stand against begging, street prostitution and drug dealing and demonstrate that Nottingham is not a soft touch for those bent on criminality and damaging the quality of life in the city. Interesting how they consider begging as 'criminal' and damaging the quality of life for others...

The future of our children and the planet
Fortunately, the power and control of government and military elites is illusory in the 21st century. The world no longer works the way it did, and there is nothing to compel people to support failed, outdated systems any longer. This is an understanding that must be widely and quickly shared. The future of our children and the planet depends upon our changing our thinking about governments, and our support for them.

Austria, Hitler and Howard’s Australia

27-02-2006 15:53

Pauline Hanson recently announced on news radio that her political views have been “vindicated”; she cited the overt racist attitudes of John Howard and Peter Costello as proof of her claim. Who could deny it? Hanson’s imprisonment on trumped-up charges was an act of political assassination instigated by Howard but executed by his then errand boy, Tony Abbott. Hanson’s trial and subsequent imprisonment effectively eliminated her and her party from the Australian political landscape; mainstream racist ideology was re-established in its rightful home, the white Australian conservative ultra-right Liberal Party of Howard! The world watches Australia take a giant leap backwards as Howard continues to divide the nation.

Throughout January tens of thousands of workers went on wildcat strikes in key industrial areas, smashing machinery, paralyzing exports and production lines at foreign-owned companies. Finally the government pacified their ire with a soothing forty per cent minimum wage increase.
