In what has to be seen as a vindication of community activists who have for some time been highlighting how bad is Pavilion, the Audit Commission has recently published a damning indictment of Pavilion. It is also another nail in the coffin of privatisation of council housing, as no matter how badly run council housing may be, it is nowhere as bad as the private sector.

The Battle of Cuba

26-07-2004 08:53

Failing in opinion polls, high on Jesus, haemorrhaging incompetence and in delusion and denial over Iraq, Bush is staring down the barrel of political oblivion. All seems lost. Unless of course, in desperation, Mr. “I’m a war President” decides to go to war. Again.

News and photos from Afghanistan

A Butcher
So the elections are now on 9^th October 2004. These are the presidential ones.
