Its work since its founding 29 years ago, as Helsinki Watch, has been generally exemplary given the conditions it sometimes finds in the 70 countries it operates in.

Crossrail - City transport scheme paid for by taxpayers not public transport

03-09-2007 17:16

Crossrail, the £30billion transport scheme is a City transport scheme NOT a public transport scheme as it will benefit the City who keeps putting out press releases with poodle Ken Livingstone to say how vital Crossrail is. .The City have told the Government that taxpayers can pay and underwrite the Crossrail scheme, which reputable experts say is what would be expected if one were planning a garden shed.

Next time you hear about new research - dig out the proof, you will find there is nothing but some press releases and some willing corporate journalists.
