11-04-2009 20:30

Is life all just a game – has the world gone insane?
Some folks think i’m mad cause i refuse to be sad
I refuse to accapt that this life is a lie...

We must all stand together – no more backs to the wall

Politically Timed "Terror" Arrests - the Real Bob Quick Scandal

10-04-2009 21:28

Linked to this is the media feeding frenzy over the resignation of Bob Quick, Scotland Yard’s anti-terror chief. It is important to note that the Quick incident only brought forward the arrests by a few hours. Yet in all the acres of coverage in the newspapers, and all the hype on TV, nobody seems to have noticed the real story.
