18-04-2005 15:28

It's pretty obvious that the CIA, Mossad, or some other American or Israeli terrorist gang orchestrated this completely bogus story about a mass kidnapping and rape in Iraq. It falls perfectly in line with their united effort to sew as much discord and strife among Arabs as possible.

Spodden Valley asbestos concerns- John Prescott gets the message...

15-04-2005 17:20

On his visit to Rochdale today, Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott met with Save Spodden Valley campaigners and listened to their concerns about building 600+ homes and a children's nursery on the site of what was the world's largest asbestos textile factory.

Countryside Properties have just had their controversial planning application put on hold. campaigners are now asking that the plans be "called-in" to the ODPM so that a Planning Inspector is appointed to oversee any decisions about the troubled site.

John Prescott promised that a request for "call-in" would be considered sympathetically by his office.

The Deputy Prime Minister also expressed his concerns about the dangers of asbestos. He explained how he had lost friends and colleagues to a "slow and lingering death from asbestos"

Save Spodden Valley handed a letter to John Prescott. (More details of the campaign can be fond at: -type carefully- Countryside Properties have been busy buying up similar sounding domain names!)
