The Inspector Calls

21-09-2005 15:14

After the incidents I related in a previous post Over the top policing in Pitsmoor, I bumped into Inspector John Ekwubiri in Abbeyfield Park at Abbeyfield Multicultural Festival Part 2 [Sat 10 Sep 2005]. He promised to ring me the day after next [Mon 12 Sep 2005], and he did.

As he had not read my previous article, I appraised him of its contents.

I first asked what had been the purpose of the raid. He confirmed that it was one of two that took place that morning; the other occurring on Abbeyfield Road. The purpose was to arrest a couple of people in connection with the incident on Earsham Street – the threat to officers and the public was sufficient that it was deemed necessary to have an armed unit carry out the raid. The operation was a joint effort of local police, South Yorkshire CID and the armed unit [which I didn’t catch the correct terminology for].

Iraqi Police Disrupt UK False Flag

20-09-2005 05:52

Just as the Downing Street Minutes proved that Bush/Bliar were LYING in order to fiegn justification for an act of naked aggression they knew to be illegal, the leaked "Iraq: Options Paper" proves that the UK/US were planning to incite Civil War, in order to take the heat off of the Occupiers, and allow them to plunder Iraq while the People killed themselves. If you'll study the media's coverage over the past few weeks, you'll note that they have served as a willing partner.

But not by a country mile...
All the while the Labor right maintained the States, received big fat pay cheques and toured the world as well paid losers with no intention or ambition whatsoever to even try to be elected into government office and were prepared to sabotage anyone in their own party who disagreed.
