Ex-Prime Minister and post-Downing Street millionaire Tony Blair, to celebrate the publication of his book A Journey, is holding a ‘signing’ session at Waterstones, Piccadilly on 8 September. That this man, responsible for taking us into an illegal war, playing his part in the ruination of an ancient country because he ‘believed he was right’, should advertise himself in this way has caused outrage. Time, I think, to look at where we, and Blair, actually stand in terms of what we can and cannot do to call him to account.

The English Defence League are the racist football thugs that by now everyone has heard of. They have attacked mosques, put pigs heads on mosques, attacked Muslims women & pulled off their hijabs. They have smashed up shops, cars, homes & rampaged through Luton, Bolton, Stoke, Dudley, Aylesbury, causing trouble. They now plan to riot in Bradford in Yorkshire on the 28th August.
A West Cumbrian Councillor has proposed that Allerdale should withdraw from the dodgy process designed to force Cumbria into "geological disposal" of nuclear waste.
The new government like the last is desperate to have been seen to have solved the problem of nuclear waste - to pave the way for new nuclear build.

Newcastle, Tyne and Wear. On 17th August the BBC programme ‘Panorama’ aired 'Death on the Med' a documentary about the Israeli attacks on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla in May 2010.Since shooting nine peace activists dead on the Freedom Flotilla, the Israeli state has led a concerted attempt to rewrite history - making their commandos the victims of an assault by “terrorists”. BBC news coverage of the attack and Panarama’s recent programme clearly show that the BBC is following suit and aligning itself with the Zionist state of Israel.

The English Defence League are a racist, Islamophobic & Zionist organisation who have recruited Nazis to start a race war against all Muslims. They have rioted in Stoke, Luton, Dudley, Bolton, Newcastle, Aylesbury... and now want to disrupt the annual Al Quds Day demonstration and march in London march in London on September the 4th 2010..because Muslims will be there. That's the reason really.
The savage cuts being implemented will have an incredible effect on the way we live our lives.

The English Defence League are a Zionist backed & funded street army who have recruited hardcore racists groups in their plans to start a race war against Muslims. They use the excuse "Islamic extremism" as a ruse for their anti Muslim thuggery but their Israeli flags and "Stop Iran's support for Hamas" banners say it all. Orlando Montfort of the EDL LGBT Divs will be leading EDL Anarchist Divs.
