21-12-2004 10:27According to the article, which Ive posted below, it seems as if the hangars for the b2s are now built. The b2s are the planes capable of dropping mini-nukes. Fairford would almost certainly be the base used if another US war is declared in the next few years. I understand that the base is currently being used to fly stuff out to the Gulf still?

20-12-2004 19:49Here is a very rough summary of the first three hours of the parliaments second hearing of the identity cards bill. It has been posted 'as taken', so excuse any discrepancies. Where the speaker is refered to as 'MP', i did not know the MP's name. Otherwise i have reffered to the speaker by his name.
Of note is Charles Clarkes shift from the voluntary to the compulsory nature of the system. Also of note is Mark Oaten's (lib dem) talk against the card.

Don't be fooled. Sunni resistance have absolutely no reason to attack Shia Iraq. The U.S. is behind these bombings "a la 'The Quiet American' (a film all wishing to understand our 1984 world should see). Sara

20-12-2004 13:13PRESS RELEASE FROM CAMBRIDGE ACTION NETWORK
Two year old Sidhaant, who has been imprisoned at Oakington Immigration Reception Centre for 54 days, will more than likely spend his festive season in harmful detention. Sidhaant is mentally and physically suffering from his long experience of detention and has been repeatedly in need of what limited medical attention is available at the centre. There has been a recognised viral outbreak at the prison for some time now with inmates suffering from vomiting, diarrhoea and fever. Sidhaant has been unable to digest food properly, has suffered from the viral outbreak, and has been losing weight. One doctor told the parents that if they came to him under normal circumstances he would recommend they take their son to a hospital to be seen by a paediatrician and undergo the necessary tests to ensure his recovery. The doctor also told the family that, as they are prisoners, he was unable to insist on this treatment.
On Thursday 16th December the Hon Charles Vaudin D'Imecourt, the adjudicator at the bail hearing of Sidhaant and his parents, assured the family that their child would be better off in prison than outside, as part of his dismissal of the bail application.
This decision completely ignores the recently released Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Prisons (HMIP) Report on Oakington. "It remains our view that the detention of children should be exceptional, and only for very short periods," said prisons inspector Anne Owers.
