27-03-2006 21:27It is ironic about claims that we should all be grateful to the security forces who apparently spent millions on a surveillance operation protecting Kember. However, lets consider the facts - no shots were fired, no hostages found and oddly enough lots of money was spent by special forces. Any operation to save a hostage required real intelligence not the kind Prince Harry specialises in or that of Sir Mark Thatcher's coup types.

24-03-2006 21:26Since September 11 there has been ongoing speculation that the Bush Administration would counter one crisis or another by triggering another terrorist attack on American soil. The Republicans are in a particular funk at the moment, and with elections coming up, the idea that another attack might occur is difficult to resist.
On the other hand, Bush now bases his entire Presidency on the illusion that he is the guy to protect Americans from terrorism. It will be difficult to blame the next attack on Clinton. After the Dubai ports fiasco and other questions about American port security, the responsibility for a new attack might turn right back at Bush. Another attack blamed on another Middle Eastern country that the United States is talking about attacking follows a fairly obvious pattern.

23-03-2006 22:43On Thursday 23rd March 2006 a High Court Judge handed
down a damning judgement against an arms company. He
struck out an interim injunction against remaining
defendants in the controversial harassment injunction
case brought against anti-war protesters in Brighton
by arms manufacturers EDO MBM Technology Ltd.
The case has been continuing in the High Court for
nearly a year without reaching a full trial despite an
court order that a speedy trial should be prepared
for because of ‘human rights implications’.

undoubtedly lies with the claimants’ says Judge

23-03-2006 12:59Peter Tatchell says free speech is under attack and needs defending
"The strength and survival of free society and the advance of human knowledge depend on the free exchange of ideas. All ideas are capable of giving offence, and some of the most powerful ideas in human history, such as those of Galileo and Darwin, have given profound religious offence in their time. The free exchange of ideas depends on freedom of expression and this includes the right to criticise and mock. We assert and uphold the right of freedom of expression and call on our elected representatives to do the same. We abhor the fact that people throughout the world live under mortal threat simply for expressing ideas and we call on our elected representatives to protect them from attack and not to give comfort to the forces of intolerance that besiege them."
