Why the UK press are mistaken about Blair's cronyist act for Minister's wife

09-06-2006 06:43

UK Home Office minister Tony McNulty's wife Christine Gilbert is controversially in the news today [Friday 9 June 2006] over her appointment to head OFSTED, the English schools 'inspectorate' quango. There is more to that appointment than just the Blairing cronyism. Christine Gilbert has been ‘chief executive’ in the East London Borough of Tower Hamlets Council. She has really messed things up for the people in that role. Christine needed salvaging for two reasons - one her wrongful role in promoting the Crossrail hole Bill attacks on the East End and her utterly incompetent or pro-corruption role in allowing the massive votes theft, fraud and abuses at the recent Coucnil elections held 4 May 2006 and at the general election held on 5 May 2005.

Blair's Quick-Fix Nuclear mistake

09-06-2006 06:11

Mr Blair is finally starting to realise and admit that Global Warming is rapidly damaging our environment; some scientists have startling estimations on how quickly the polar ice caps could disappear if the right things aren’t done. Fast. I have spent a lot of time researching the possible problems and benefits of nuclear and renewable energy. This article will shoot Mr Blair’s reasoning down in wood-burning flames, and expose it to be (self-confessed) foolishness.
