CrossRail has contaminated fragile climate of legality in UK parliament

16-12-2007 15:46

How? By the secret promoters of CrossRail hole plot [‘the CrossRail Bill’, now set to be formally 'considered' in the House of Lords following the 'Third Reading' see more below], Big Business interests and agenda-setters like the USA giant Bechtel, to dictate how the ‘sovereign’ UK and its ‘elected’ parliament and Govt should behave! This is what has been seen in the latest exhibition of ‘parliamentary sovereignty’ as displayed in the House of Commons three days ago when MPs of all parties acted openly as poodles with not a singe recorded move by a single MP against CrossRail at this finalizing procedural stage! The ‘Party’ which has been alleged to have introduced ‘Mr Bean’ into the so-called lexicon learned discourse in ‘ the mother of parliaments’, exposed its own infinite idiocy by competing fur space to show just how pathetically full of ignorance and lack of substance it was…. This is why the Khoodeelaar! Campaign has to carry on with the task that fills that gap s brazenly created by the bankruptcy of the time serving, unrepresentative and overpaid MPs…
