A Message To The People Of Iraq
This is the 'democracy' Mr Blair wants you to have:
82-year-old Mr Walter Wolfgang is dragged from his seat at the
Labour Party's annual conference after telling Foreign Secretary Straw
that he was talking nonsense about Iraq. Mr Wolfgang, a party member
since the time when Tony Blair was just figuring out how to wank, was
later prevented from returning to the conference hall by the police
using powers granted under the Terrorism Act.
Another delegate (the chairman of a constituency Labour party) who went
to Mr Wolfgang's assistance was also attacked by these thugs and
Luckily for us all, this was all captured on camera and the footage
shown around the world (even on the BBC!). This led Labour Party
chairman Ian McCartney (a man who is the living embodiment of the
philosopher Hobbes' description of human existence, in that he is
nasty, brutish [...] and short') to give a humiliating apology to Mr
Wolfgang (but not to the other victim), and for Blair himself
to give a completely insincere and unconvincing apology from the
In other developments, Labour MP Austin Mitchell had his camera seized
by police and the images on it deleted, and delegates were prevented
from taking sweets into the venue lest they be used as missiles.
All this in the name of 'security'. Whose?
We now quite clearly have a government of corporate puppets, with an
ingrained Blackshirt mentality, surrounding a leader full of Messianic
delusions standing at the heart of a huge personality cult. This may
have given Mr Wolfgang a touch of déja vu - he came here
in 1937 to escape something similar in Germany.
Elsewhere, six peaceful protestors have been found guilty of
'aggravated trespass' for handing out leaflets protesting against a
business conference held at Lancaster University last year; a
conference which was attended by corporations with very dubious
business ethics (weapons systems manufacturers BAE and pollution
specialists Shell, for example). The University (where the six
activists are students) is headed by a man with no experience of
running a university, and so presumably with no notion of the key part
that universities have to play as bulwarks against the erosion of the
freedom to dissent.

This is the 'freedom' Mr Bush wants you to have:
Anti-war campaigner Cindy Sheehan (who lost her son to Bush's
illegal war on your country) is arrested for addressing a peaceful
protest outside the White House, whose illegitimate resident refuses to
answer her questions about the real reasons for his war on a
defenceless country with a strategic location close to Israel which
just happens to be sitting on huge oil reserves.
Cindy Sheehan has asked Bush for a meeting many times, having conducted
a protest outside Bush's bunker in Crawford, Texas during the alleged
president's lengthy summer vacation there. Still Bush refuses,
prefering instead to send out one of his goons to make an anodyne
statement to the corporate media, or encouraging vicious personal
attacks on her through his contacts and supporters in those same media.
And just to think, people of Iraq: all this could be yours
too if you'd only stop fighting to remove illegal occupiers from your
sovereign territory! I can't imagine why you don't give in right away...
