It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinions; it is easy in solitude to live after your own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude - Ralph Waldo Emerson

London Bombings Mastermind is MI6 Asset

FOX News | July 30, 2005

On FOX News Channel's Day Side, Terrorism Expert John Loftus revealed that Haroon Rashid Aswat, the suspect wanted by British Police for "masterminding" the July 7th London bombings and July 21st attempted bombings is in fact an asset of MI6, the British Secret Service. According to Loftus, Aswat has been under the protection of MI6 for many years.

(Maybe they just didn't want to be out done, with the US having Osama and Saddam on their payroll, but I'm sure its all a coincidence and isn't important in any way, shape, or form)

the UK was always playing with fire ever since they formed an alliance with the USA to go to war, simple as that.

Veteran protesters face jail under new anti-terror laws

Ian Herbert / London Independent | May 10 2006

It takes a brave - or foolhardy - law enforcer to drag Helen John before the courts. The Metropolitan Police tried it seven years ago after the peace campaigner had daubed the 18in-high message "Ban Trident", referring to the nuclear warhead of that name, on to the Houses of Parliament. The jury, which convicted her of criminal damage, also said it "unanimously agreed that the defendant had a reasonable cause for her action".

Today, Mrs John will discover whether the Government will try its luck again, by making her and fellow veteran peace protester Sylvia Boyes the first individuals to face charges under a little-noticed clause in the Government's Serious Organised Crime and Police Act, which came into force last month.

Mrs John, 68, and Mrs Boyes, 62, who have been told to report to Harrogate police station to hear their fate, were arrested on 2 April after setting out to highlight the law, which civil liberties groups believe will criminalise free speech and undermine the right to peaceful demonstration, under the guise of the war on terror.

Lone war protester told it's time go

Neil Tweedie / London Telegraph | May 10 2006

Brian Haw's one-man protest is almost as much a part of Parliament Square as the great, brooding statue of Sir Winston Churchill standing next to it.

For five years his rag-tag display of anti-war placards has stood there, expanding to occupy an entire side of the square facing Big Ben and the entrance to the House of Commons. "B Liar" declares one of his creations, a rebuke to the man Mr Haw regards as the warmonger-in-chief.

But now, after numerous abortive attempts to remove it, Mr Haw's encampment is facing destruction. A notice issued yesterday by Sir Ian Blair, the Metropolitan Police commissioner, ordered him to dismantle it "as soon as possible". He will be allowed just 10 feet of frontage in the future - enough for a poster and his camp bed.

"They want to destroy it all because it tells the truth," said Mr Haw.

In an article in The Observer last month, the Prime Minister cited Mr Haw's demonstration as evidence that his Government was not authoritarian, despite its desire to fingerprint the entire adult population for ID cards and passing legislation allowing police to retain DNA samples taken from innocent people.

UK knives amnesty gets under way

Press Association | May 24 2006

A nationwide knife amnesty has begun across the country - the first of its kind for 10 years.

For the next five weeks - until June 30 - people will be able to hand in all bladed instruments without fear of reprisal.

The initiative is being backed by police forces throughout England, Northern Ireland and Wales. Scotland is running its own amnesty concurrently.

Excerpt: Biggest bomb plot in British history - doesn't make news

The Truth Will Set You Free | October 11 2006


Because the suspects are NEITHER ARAB, NOR MUSLIM.

A RETIRED Grange dentist is accused of being part of a bomb plot after a record number of explosives were seized in a Lancashire town.

David Bolais Jackson, 62, of Trent Road, Nelson, was arrested on Friday in the Lancaster area after leaving his Grange practice for the last time.

Jackson was charged with being in possession of an explosive substance for an unlawful purpose. [Notice the absence of terrorism charges]

However, it is unclear who or what the intended target might have been.

Police found rocket launchers, chemicals, British National Party literature and a nuclear or biological suit [!!!] at his home.

The find came shortly after they had recovered 22 chemical components from the house of his alleged accomplice, Robert Cottage, a former BNP election candidate, who lives in Colne.


Aaah, so what? What's a few rocket launchers and a record number of explosives among friends?

They probably had them 'just in case' some Arab Muslims showed up to sell them falafel or hummus - or worse yet, baklava.

After all, they're white - they would never harm their fellow Brits. Whoops! I could be wrong:
[T]he last London mad-bomber neo-Nazi David Copeland, who nail-bombed the Admiral Duncan and two other pubs in 1999 caused far more genuine fear than all these alleged Islamist plots in the alleged "pre-planning" (ie coffee-shop bullsh-t) stage.

Copeland "only" killed three people (and maimed about a dozen more) but not for want of trying the blast of the last bomb he placed was blocked by a pillar. Targeting places where gay, black and Asian people hang out ie inner-city pubs with good music and food he was charged simply with murder.
Let's compare and contrast how Cottage, possessing both rocket launchers and explosives, was treated with how Arab Muslim 'suspects', armed with nothing but their names, were treated:

Unlike the Forest Gate raid in east London in June, which involved 250 police, some of them armed, Lancashire police entered Cottage's home with a handful of unarmed officers.

There was no 'air exclusion zone' or assaults on neighbours, no closing down of surrounding streets, and no smear stories about those arrested.

Superintendent Neil Smith instantly moved to reassure residents and stressed, 'It is not a bomb making factory.' He was able to add that it was not related to terrorism.

Let's face it - it's just not newsworthy.

Move along, there's nothing to see here.
