17-12-2007 15:32John Major has protested that the Tories were not corrupt in the 80s and 90s. These claims will remain unconvincing unless they answer two questions. First, why did they give an apparently unjustifiable £300 million contract to one of the two companies involved in the arms deal illegally linked to the Pergau Dam? Secondly, who gave the tens of millions of pounds needed to fund the Tory party in that period.
17-12-2007 10:36The importance of a Government cover-up (in the context of the investigation of the suspicious death of the world expert on biological and chemical weapons who, at the time of his death, was perceived to be blowing the whistle on the Government which had taken the country to illegal war on a pack of lies) cannot be over-emphasised. Richard Norton-Taylor (and others in his position) should be pressing for a proper investigation of Kelly's death, ie a proper inquest, rather than wasting his time attempting to rubbish Norman Baker's book, while claiming the moral high ground. Otherwise, there is a risk that he and other apparent apologists for the dreadful Blair and Brown governments are seen in the future as the shameless enablers that perhaps they are.
16-12-2007 23:20One of the most important movements right now in Italy is the inspiring coalition to prevent the US from building a military base at Dal Molin, Vicenza in Northern Italy. On Saturday 15th December, an estimated 80,000 people marched in cold weather to say No to the base. This was virtually ignored in the mainstream Italian press and TV. Prodi's "centre left" government, supported by parties that say they are against the war, said "The base will be approved". It's a national issue!

a mass grave. The threat demands that their union cease all protest against
Coca-Cola. Join us in emergency action to defend their lives!

14-12-2007 10:26Blair, having served wealthy elites and Washington, while in office, continues his service but is also making a killing for himself.
13-12-2007 23:06NATO big-wigs flew in today and yesterday for the upcoming conference near Edinburgh tomorrow. They are staying in the Edinburgh (Caledonian) Hilton, Lothian Road (you can tell, its the one with all the cops and Special Branch outside). Protestors preparing for the counter-demo tomorrow decided to pay them a visit.
13-12-2007 15:24The US and her allies tried to legitimize their military occupation of Afghanistan under the banner of “bringing freedom and democracy for Afghan people”. But as we have experienced in the past three decades, in regard to the fate of our people, the US government first of all considers her own political and economic interests and has empowered and equipped the most traitorous, anti-democratic, misogynist and corrupt fundamentalist gangs in Afghanistan.
