Scrap Big Biasness greedy tool Crossrail project- East End No to Crossrail tell

17-02-2006 09:43

The Crossrail hole Bill [the hybrid ‘Crossrail Bill’ – given Second Reading on 19 July 2005] now in the UK House of Commons contains provisions for destroying the economic and social base of entire communities along the proposed route.

Adrian Montague’s conduct is forcing the call for the Crossrail project to be scrapped. The call is contained in a letter from KHOODEELAAR the Brick Lane London E1 campaign against the Crossrail hole Bill organiser Muhammad Haque today to Alistair Darling MP, the UK Transport minister who is responsible to Parliament for the very flawed Crossrail Bill.
