Big Brothers latest gadgetry now in use at a ‘Fat Cat’ demo near you.

A massive and violent insurection erupts in the City of London.
This morning while reporting the antics of some trots outside the Goldman Sachs building in the City of London; I noticed a strange protrusion on the hat of a cycle cop.

At first glance it looked like a trendy new device for holding a spare lipstick. On closer inspection a wire was spotted coming from the back of it. The copper in question was friendly enough and explained that the device had completed its trials and would be rolled out for general use within a couple of months. As well as the head cam there was a second one on his chest in case anyone tried to grab the more obvious one. It was activated by a switch and also stored the 30 seconds of footage prior to its activation.

If all the Police are due to be trained and issued with this gear, does that mean that a certain unit (known for their blue shouldered jackets) will soon be surplus to requirements? Well, if in a couple of months time you spot some familiar faces working as security guards in your local Tescos, you now know why…..

Fannie, Freddie, Food and Fuel

The financial crisis deepens with the nationalization of IndyMac and the likely bailout of Freddie Mac and Fannie May by the US taxpayer. The financial crisis has company as inflation, and in particular huge increases in global food and energy prices, enters the fray.

The American economic model has been discredited and the American century has lasted but a few decades. These developments have and will further open up a new period in the struggle between capital and labor on the world stage and the US working class will have a major role to play as it re-connects with its militant traditions.

George Galloway exposed as he betrays East End over Crossrail - deal with Ken

After having done a deal with Ken Livingstone, which involved selling out the East End over Crossrail in true SWP style, George Galloway has been attending the Commons plugging his reputation as a man who cares about the middle East. The man's latest concern is Pakistan while the poor and oppressed in East End continue to suffer at the hands of Tower Hamlets Council and the Respect clique which has joined forces with disreputable contingencies in the Labour, Liberal Democrat and increasingly Conservative Party. In short, George Galloway and his supporters are a fraud. Look at his record Read more >>

G8, NoBorders, demo in Croydon– bike ride included

Was told after the demo that this had also been a Freedom to Protest action. Which suited quite well, given the amount of harassment given by police to all present, from the start. It feels like the objective is to discourage people from being politically active by simply giving us an unbearable hard time. Read more >>
