The forthcoming local council elections to be held in parts of the UK including in London have been 'decided' in effect by the parties that have apparently selected the best candidates for representing their local areas. This is utterly untrue. Local people must have proper and full and transparent say in who gets to be selected to represent the locality. Parties must not have that control any longer.

911 – a route to war or an excuse for war?

08-12-2005 15:38

The war with Iraq and everything that led to war with Iraq was a lie. Is it not time to reopen 911 to see if it too was a lie? Was 911 the 'new Pearl Harbor' that the neocons so desired?

Annapolis in Wonderland

07-12-2005 04:09

The present international instability could result in one or numerous other horrendous scenarios. However, the one glaring consistency or constant in today’s international political arena is the hatred that America has attracted from the rest of the world. Regardless of any other consideration, a nation despised by all is doomed. The USA has earned its reward by its blatant double standards, hypocrisy and the serial exploitation of weaker nations. These are the direct causes of the retaliatory response on American interests worldwide. The so-called “terrorists” are only a minor distraction while the real war unfolds.

What Happens After Kyoto?

04-12-2005 21:04

With Russian ratification of the Kyoto Protocol during 2005 attention has quickly shifted to what happens next. The Kyoto commitment period ends in 2012 and no clear plan for what follows currently exists. In this article however I am not purely looking a what happens after Kyoto in terms of an international framework, rather I am looking at the spectrum of future international measures which may be used for climate change mitigation.

Any descendant of Kyoto is likely to draw from key features of the UNFCCC, but will also have to make significant improvements. The key issues to be addressed are:

* the need to bring developing countries into the system
* the need to engage with the united states
* the need to deal with both historical responsibility and adaption
* the need to achieve far greater global emissions reductions.

The Fusion of Peak Oil & Climate Change

04-12-2005 18:48

Peak Oil and Climate Change are a bigger threat together than either are alone. Our biggest hope is to similarly converge our understanding of them, and how to deal with the problems they present. Peak Oil and Climate Change must be fused as issues – an approach is needed to deal with them as a package.

Story of Former US Army Interrogator, Tony Lagouranis, Is Growing

02-12-2005 10:13

Good news. The story of Tony Lagouranis, the former US Army interrogator who reported widespread torture in Iraq, is growing. Yesterday, I posted the following paragraph to

"As an indication of how relative few inroads this story is making into the public conscience, the Google search which I just performed (1 Dec 05; 12:56pm GMT) on "Tony Lagouranis" resulted in 694 hits. For the subject of a story of such international import, this is very low."

As of 9:52am GMT on 2 December, the same Google search resulted in 756 hits. This is still low, but indicates growing interest.
