Is your union funding New Labour?

16-08-2005 14:16

The war in Iraq, ID cards and the removal of our civil liberties through the 2005 Prevention of Terrorism Act are just a few of the things that this Labour government have forced on us all recently.

IT is refreshing to know that 52 years ago at this time British and American Terrorists were planning a coordinated attack on Iran's budding democracy. They terrorized,bombed, and alligned theselves with Islamic terrorists and assassins to topple a democratically elected government. Now that Britain and the US are using the goast of their own terrorists as a smokescreen to curtail Civil Liberties in their own countries. British terrorist Mullahs are running Afghanistan,Iran and Iraq in defence of Imperialism.
