It is unusual for grassroots people to be invited to speak abroad and to have the opportunity to meet their counterparts in countries of the North.

No hope now for a decent mental health service in London

18-11-2006 11:53

With cuts in mental health services and difficulties in staffing due to the high cost of living in London I am sure that most mental health services are hoping that workers will strike bar those that are in hospital.

Congestion charge to travel outwards from the zone

18-11-2006 11:25

Apparently the increase in the congestion charge zone to include West London
will decrease revenue due to the increase in exemptions as more residents are included within the zone. Perhaps having a charge to travel outwards from within the zone as well as a pollution charge could assist with revenues as well as decreasing traffic especially in areas outside the congestion charge zone.

Iraq and Afghanistan that's a huge leap
[So you have to have a story behind it to make up for the distance between false flag opps in Indonesia all the way across to Iraq and Afghanistan that's a huge leap to cover without a terror tale to hook into? What about the Icon of the Terror movement G W Bush? At least we know he's guilty! Osama bin Laden hasn't been found guilty of anything, yo!] And Indonesia has been blowing up bombs in their own country just to move people out of villages for years!]
