In Parliament this week, Blair admonished Chavez that he should “respect the rules of the international community”, ignoring his own gross violations of the UN Charter and the Nuremberg Tribunal.
12-02-2006 03:58Faced with the undeniable and now unavoidable truth of the criminality of the Bush, Blair and Howard governments, what do you suppose are the consequences for these men? People are fined for parking and littering offences but murder and plunder on an international scale incurs no penalty it would seem. [The ICC is a puppet court, an institution with zero credibility.] Is the lack of legal and public response surprising? Advice from leading consultants and ‘people managers’ was/is unanimous; once a decision is acted upon by a government and a nation is committed to a particular course, the people are swept along regardless of compromising evidence released during or after the event.

10-02-2006 18:23Tony Blair’s terrifying fantasy in Blackpool today [after the Scottish by-election disaster at Dumfrimline, Friday 10 February 2006] echoing the equally chilling Margaret Hilda Roberts’s diabolically hypocritical invocation of Francis of Assisi cannot conceal the emptiness immorality and soullessness that dominate Blair’s agenda of piling deprivation on the already deprived and adding violations on the already violated. Nowhere can that agenda be found to be as wantonly on display as in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, which is being politically decimated by an overly Blarite cabal of sub-democratic touts bent on selling the East End to Big Business and their co-looters travelling in the Crossrail bandwagon towards looting the public purse of £20 billion as their class, coterie and kind had been allowed to do on a smaller scale of a mere £1 billion over the Millennium Dome.

Transport Secretary Alistair Darling ahs been told today to stop the Crossrail hole plan altogether without delay.
