23-02-2006 18:32This week's doisclosure that the BBC has effectively declared George Gallwoay as 'not the MP for Bethnal Green and Bow' conceals a deeply sinister plot to overthrow democracy in Britain.
23-02-2006 01:59Arab fighters and insurgents have demonstrated to the world that the US is a ‘superpower’ in name only. A poorly armed and trained but highly motivated and dedicated band of fighters has exposed the US military as weak, inept, unskilled, brutal and bereft. From South America to the Himalayas, resistance against capitalist plunder and exploitation signals the inevitable failure of militaristic capitalism. Regardless of all other considerations people today have confirmed that they will fight any aggressor who threatens their homes, families and way of life.

22-02-2006 08:34Tower Hamlets Council's controlling clique of the Blairing Party has held the key positions on the inner city, 'one-of-the-most-deprived' boroughs in all of England, throughout the past 12 years following the much-touted for ouster from power of the Lib Dems in 1994. This was caused by the voters across the East End borough responding to UK-wide publicity of racist and outrageously undemocratic conduct of some key Lib Dem councillors in powerful positions on the Council in the run-up to the 1994 council elections. So where have the Lib Dems been for the past 12 years in Tower Hamlets? Nowhere much at all! Not politically at any rate. Until most recently, in the past month. Remarkably, the Lib Dems have been producing a series of motion/s and comments about the hottest political issue affecting the Borough – the Crossrail hole plan against the Brick Lane London E1 area. And affecting the Whitechapel and Mile End park parts of the borough. How come? What might underlie the community ‘presence’ of the Tower Hamlets Lib Dems this time? It is to do with the scheduled 4 May 2006 local council elections including in Tower Hamlets. But it is also to do with the abysmally anti-social and undemocratic behaviour of the controlling clique on Tower Hamlets Council that is to blame for the whole Crossrail hole mess! Given that both Group leader Janet Ludlow and a number of her Lib Dem colleagues have attended Khoodeelaar campaign events so far, its is quite possible that the voters might , just might, forgive the Lib Dems their past mistakes and lack of accountability. If the motion/s put for the scheduled Council meeting on 1 March 2006 by Tower Hamlets Lib Dem councillor Louise Alexander is anything to go by, its is quite possible that the Liberal Democrats might produce a few surprises come 5 May 2006!
And the creeps that will be heading for consignment in the hole of their own crass collusion with Crossrail hole plan might all come from the Blairing freaks-box that carries the poseurs and the abusers pretending now to have been the democratic voice of the Tower Hamlets Council!
