14-01-2009 07:15The TELEGRAPH group's coverage of one of Harriet Harman's electoral stunts hides the truth as usual. They are calling it a 'class war' move. The truth is the opposite

13-01-2009 11:22I attended the second night of this tour in Bristol, and would highly recomend it. The opportunity to watch the conversation unfolding between these people is a rare and profound experience, full of emotional insights and even humour amongst the grim reality.
Please support this tour and check back to http://guantanamovoices.wordpress.com/about-the-project/ to find out more about how it came about. It's an incredible story.
But the truth in fact is someone had spotted a large unit of cops in bell helmets some safe distance behind the gates. An increasing numerous crowd parted from the march gathered at the gates and started throwing shoes, setting placards alight and shoving them under the gap of the gate. This in turn ignited the shoes.
The fact that a number of people were sitting on top of the gate wall waving the hammer and sickle flags of the MLKP maybe should have, but clearly failed to alert the crowd, that this entrance was actually the approach to the Russian Embassy!
A quick surf of multimap will confirm where Old Court Place is in relation to Kensington Palace Gardens!

12-01-2009 20:46I've been reading comments on the site for a few days and while you don't expect to find a lot of love for the Metropolitan Police on here the lack of objectivity is starting to border on the myopic. To suggest that the violence on Saturday was in some way planned or instigated by the police is to ignore both the facts and the truth. Quite sad really on a site that proclaims it's honesty and integrity as it's raison d'etra
I was there on Saturday and my colleagues and I were coming under attack for hours before the baton charges and mounted deployments that everyone seems to be solely focusing on. Police did not deploy in "riot" kit but normal everyday beat helmets and jackets. We sustained a constant barrage of shoes, sticks, placards, road cones, coins, the occasional firework and paint for several hours prior to kit being deployed.
Your own pictures posted on the site show this.

What is happening then?
From that date forth your ISP (Internet Service Provider) will
by law have to keep a copy of the address of every email you send and
receive (Including any junk mail your receive offering you pills,
potions and other services!) and it is estimated it will cost the
government in the region of 15-25 Million pounds per year (How many
teachers, nurses etc could that fund?)
