It suggests Tehran might be telling the truth about not having worked as extensively on its centrifuge designs as the Anglo-American bloc alleges it has.
16-11-2007 11:43Gordon Brown plans to extend the restrictions on demonstrations near parliament to cover the whole country, claiming that this will simplify the work of the police. The current law totally bans spontaneous protests, requiring advance police permission, which allows the police to impose arbitrary limits on numbers and effectively act as political censors. The consultation proposes extending these rules to any protest anywhere, in the name of 'harmonisation'. The freedom to protest was won through hard struggle and if we want to keep it we must take a stand to say enough is enough. Come to a public meeting to plan a public response: we propose early January.

10-11-2007 18:14On September 11, 2007, the BBC ran an article describing a paper written by Keith Seffen of the University of Cambridge. Seffen said his research showed the collapse of the World Trade Center did not require explosives but was "an ordinary thing". The BBC claimed Seffen's paper had been published, although it hadn't.

08-11-2007 14:11As informed by grassroot group Scotland Against Criminalising Communities, our lefty lawyer Aamer Anwar is likely to face contempt of court charges for disagreeing with the judge in the Siddique "terrorism" case.
