This conclusion should be a part of our political discourse given how much of the policy in the past eight years has been based on assumptions about 9/11.
In a free society, this type of inquiry would be a matter of civic principle, not national ridicule, which it what it has largely been when it has not been totally ignored by corporate media.
30-01-2010 13:29UDA joke John Coyne was evicted from his pub by anti racists, Kentish Town residents, Camden National Union of Teachers etc when it was found that he was watching porn in his pub where only children and under age teenage drinkers were let in. Everyone else was barred from the former IRA pub, Gloucester Arms in Kentish Town. His chum Frank Portinari hid guns in a Kentish Town infants school.
30-01-2010 08:17The Gloucester Arms has been at the centre of a row between anti racists and the landlord John Coyne who let ultra right wing racists the Jobbik Party hold meetings. The UDA supporter Coyne also let children into the pub and watched porn on the bar's TV. We have absolute confirmation that the brewery and police have evicted John Coyne.
The meeting is at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday 3rd February at the University Arms, 197 Brook Hill, Sheffield, S3 7HG.
29-01-2010 19:52The Gloucester Arms in Camden has been the subject of demos due to landlord John Coyne's decsion to let hardcore neo nazis the Jobbik Party hold meetings in the pub. The pub is also at the centre of a feud between local tenants & the landlord Coyne, who lets children into the pub where he watches porn. A councillor for Kentish Town told us in an email that the brewery and police are evicting him however Camden Council say different.
29-01-2010 17:07"Clinton said that a “cornerstone” of European security is the “sovereignty and territorial integrity of all states.” She repeated U.S. calls on Russia to honor the terms of a cease-fire agreement that ended the August 2008 Russia-Georgia war and the administration’s refusal to recognize Russia’s claims of independence for the breakaway Georgian regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia." Neither Cliton or the current author bother to recall for us that it was Russia that was the victum of a surprise attack from Georgia, a US "partner." I wonder why?
29-01-2010 16:04FOOD riots broke out in one of India's poorest states yesterday, as prices soar and revolt deepens.
29-01-2010 11:28Recently the Gloucester Arms has been subjected to protests by anti racists due the landlord John Coyne's decision to allow ultra right wing racists the Jobbik Party hold meetings in the pub. This was not a random decision. Coyne [who claims now to be an Irish nationalist] has boards outside the pub offering British troops 20% discount having bought a former IRA pub and banning all the customers. But...Camden police have banned reggae in Camden Town & threatened nightclubs....
28-01-2010 18:47The Gloucester Arms was targeted by anarchists and anti racists for hosting the neo nazi Jobbik Party meetings in the pub and some sort of spat between the IRA and the UDA, rows with local council tenants, residents campaigns, mothers etc.
Does anyone have any latest news as to whether he has in fact been evicted or just warned by the police and council over noise, nonces and nazis in the pub?
