Khoodeelaar! demand on Tower Hamlets Coucnil to PASS No to Xrail

12-06-2006 12:49

The future of the East End as a community is under threat from Crossrail plan Bill. The local Tower Hamlets Council has so far been used as tool to suppress the very people in whose name that Coucnil exists.

Tower |Hamlets Council controlling clique has spent public money to perpetrate and to promote Crossrail -hole-backing lies in its propaganda title 'East End Lies' for Crossrail . If the Crossrail Bill is passed, they can do anything to destroy the community.

Make people homeless, drive small shop keepers out of their trade and make the East End a wasteland before Big Business takes over the area.

The Crossrail Bill is now being formally ‘scrutinised’ in relation to the formal petitions lodged by some of the local individuals and organisations to parts of its provisions. One of the petitioners has been the local Tower Hamlets Council.

Its chief employee fronting the Council’s side in all contacts with Crossrail has been Owen Whalley.

He gave verbal clarifications before the House of Commons committee on 7 June 2006. It was clear that he was not disclosing most of the facts of what they talked about with Crossrail .

Yet today’s edition of the Council’s ‘East End life’ [‘dubbed EAST END LIES as examined by the Khoodeelaar! Campaign] paints the Coucnil as having ‘obtained' good deals for the community fromCrossrail and presents Crossrail as not only a 'beneficial' project for the alleged regeneration of the East End but one with which the community is happy!

That pack of lies has been splashed on the front of the ‘east End Lies’ and stuffed on two centre pages.

Most of the people in the Borough are totally unaware of the manifold leis that they have been being told.

Khoodeelaar! Is formally demanding a full space in next edition failing which they ill take the Editor of East End Life to court.

Khoodeelaar! Is also delivering a draft motion for the full Coucnil Meeting scheduled for 21 June 2006 asking all the sitting Councillors to support an unequivocal motion of NO to Crossrail hole Bill.

Behind the Lies of the Australian Prime Minister

12-06-2006 09:57

It’s not difficult to arrive at an accurate assessment of the present Oz leadership, the government of John Howard. Love Howard or not, he has the local population eating his lies like it was manna from heaven. Howard’s treasurer recently announced that the Oz government was out of debt, in view of a national foreign debt of $493 billion, the highest ever recorded by an astronomical ‘mile’, the announcement of no government debt becomes meaningless double-talk. But which figure does the public prefer to embrace? The lie of course, it’s far more comforting – the media’s emphasis on the treasurer’s remarks at the expense of the horrendous crippling debt is not unintentional.

The working class in the North East has changed since WWII, and in the past 20 years change at work (or not) has been rapid, but working class cultures continue.

OFSTED - East London lesson for Cronying Tony Blair – Drop Christine

10-06-2006 18:18

The Khoodeelaar! campaign against the Crossrail hole Bill - Blair’s de facto salvaging of the career of Christine Gilbert via the Ofsted appointment is only significant as a peripheral indicator of how immoral his decision making is, contrary to the routine professions that he is at all a morally active ethically laudable decision maker… the central lesson is that his judgement is seriously flawed and that he is as anti-democratic and unconstitutional on this one as he has been on all key issues of the day in his 'premiership'.. Blair’s recent acknowledgement that the crossrail bill [now in the uk house of commons] had to be ‘handled sensibly’ showed the latest public confirmation that our campaign against Crossrail bill was affecting him and his unaccountable entourage.
