Crossrail - Pay back £400 mn public monies - No More Taxpayers money

30-08-2007 12:49

The Centre for Cities thinktank (who are these people and who are they funded by) has proposed a 4 per cent increase in business rates to fund schemes like Crossrail but as a third of big business does not pay any tax, where do you think this money will come from? You guessed it - taxpayers ...
PriceWaterhouseCoopers there if you want to fleece taxpayers and fiddle the books. Reuters again makes claims some businesses would support ring fenced schemes but guess what no names of such businesses and no plans to ringfence taxpayers money. No to post National Audit Office investigation

The case of Pegah Emambakhsh and the new frontiers of Human Rights

30-08-2007 11:29

Roberto Malini (sit-in in Rome, August, 27 2007)
It is now time to reflect and remain calm.

The horrors of history, genocides and holocausts emerge slowly and develop when indifference reigns or when human rights are forgotten or ignored by the authorities. We are all watchdogs of the respect for human rights and each and every one of us – as Mark Twain wrote – is a patriot and represents his own country when it fights for the observance of what one believes is right, even if he is the last person to see where Truth and Justice lie.
