10-03-2006 13:24The 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?

10-03-2006 09:43While UK Prime Minister Tony Blair seems destined to go down as the holder of the 'highest political office in the land' who most disgraced that office by his contempt for 'the constitution' and in abusing the democratic associations with that election-linked office of Prime Minister [the Prime Minister is NOT elected in the UK, yet, contrary to the overwhelmingly banal assertors in the media that it is] , the legacy he is likely to leave behind for the denegation of parts of the UK inner cities will linger even longer than the Daily Mail-type headlines about his sleazy regime.

09-03-2006 21:50From 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.
