The prospect of Iran developing a nuclear capability (which would realistically entail at least a five-year time frame) did not prevent John Bolton, US representative to the UN, stating that a “painful” response would be inflicted on Iran if it failed to comply with UN (American) dictates! Questions of the UN’s independence aside, is the focus on Iran a distraction from the debacle that is Iraq or is the USA following their PNAC strategy with little regard for consequences?

That Blair is bent on letting Big Business defile the East End under the cover of Crossrail is seen in his administration’s frequent appearances in the Brick Lane area, pleading with the community for 'cooperation' with the Crossrail hole programme of destruction of the very same community! These EXCLUSIVELY written Khoodeelaaronline items are linked with the way that the CROSSRAIL hole attacks on the East End have been conceived and are being pushed against the community

From 2 till 10 yesterday the chalkboard was filled with a succession of over 40 women, a few girls and the only male - a 4 month baby. We drank tea, ate cake, and laughed together. A wide range of women, from many different walks of life, including feminists, those that were looking for more female companionship and others who had never celebrated IWD before, but had been either walking past or picked up a flyer and curiosity brought them in.
