22-09-2007 13:42An independent videographer was arrested on the Noborders march today at 12:45. From preliminary reports, it appears that the arrest occurred when he filmed cops who were policing the march (not a crime) and then refused to give his details when asked to do so. It is unclear to us why anyone should be required to provide his name and address when filming the police. The arrest occurred under Section 50 of the Police Reform Act, a recent piece of legislation allowing police to arrest someone who doesn't give details when suspected of anti-social behaviour, so perhaps filming cops is an anti-social activity.
22-09-2007 12:37UK Transport Secretary Ruth Kelly has given a publicly stated deadline of next Tuesday by when the City of London and Big Business interests should come up with 'real money'. She has been reported to have asked to see the colour of the Big Business money. This impasse has been
painted in the pro-Crossrail Big Business media including the Financial Times and by the USA outlet Bloomberg as an unfair demand on the conglomerates. They are citing this demand as evidence of sloppy and unrealistic thinking on the part of Gordon Brown's administration. This is not so. The problem lies with the sloppiness and the lack of merit in the present Crossrail plan itself.
