Legal Aid Reforms - An Attack on the Working Class!

11-11-2006 17:46

Picture this – A nervous and overwhelmed individual is dragged before a court. He has spent the previous night in police custody, being interviewed about a crime he is alleged to have committed. He is tired and he is scared. He is dragged before a court, who are simply interested in getting home on time. He has no legal representation. The prosecuting solicitor wants him locked up, and launches into an eloquent tirade, using all his years of training and experience in the legal field, explaining exactly why this man should not be released. The man is asked if he has anything to say in his defence.

MI5 Dame: Brit Intelligence Busy Creating Terror Events

10-11-2006 15:24

Dame Eliza Manningham-Buller said "MI5 and the police were tackling 200 groups or networks totalling more than 1,600 identified individuals in the UK who were ‘actively engaged in plotting or facilitating terrorist acts,’ ”

Never mind that such terrorist acts rarely come to fruition, usually instead sputtering out into absurd allegations of liquid bombs and other fantastical plots nipped in the bud, or so we are expected to believe, that is after we suspend credibility, again for the umpteenth time.
