18-07-2008 19:32

Bartosz Kantorczyk, a member of The Workers' Initiative Trade Union in Gdansk in Poland and the initiator of postmen strike in November 2006, has been unlawfully dismissed.

Unlawful Crossrail shortchanges tube and Londoners £16bn - another central line

18-07-2008 13:56

The Crossrail Bill is due to receive Royal Assent on Tuesday 22 July 2008 after petitioning in the House of Lords and House of Commons. Residents are beginning to realise why so many publicly funded projects go wrong if the level of scrutiny is similar to that of the Crossrail Bill, the Millennium Dome of public transport schemes. The Department for Transport, the House of Commons and House of Lords Crossrail Committee, who have favoured the City over ordinary London residents, taxpayers and farepayers have slammed the final nail in the coffin of the Crossrail Bill. We now know why so many publicly funded schemes are so poorly scrutinised.
