Prime Ministerial bullying!

Our parliamentary democracy and free speech of the people is seriously under attack. This excellent article by a Labour MP illustrates the problem we face!

Our PM is nothing but a bully - just ask old Walter
By Bob Marshall Andrews

An extract from the article

Behind these violent and ugly displays of rank bullying lies a profound irony which exposes the true pusillanimous nature of New Labour and its prime architect. In their analysis of the party's electoral failure the high priests of New Labour identified party indiscipline as a root cause.
As part of the cure, therefore, intellectual challenge and dissent were to be ruthlessly expunged. Rule books have been amended to emasculate conference, and sanitise debate. The parliamentary power of patronage has been ruthlessly employed to advance quiescent minds, placemen and transparent cronies to protect orthodoxy and order. As a result, party membership has plummeted by 50 per cent. The price of Blairite "success" has been the near disintegration of the most valuable and influential democratic party of the 20th century.

Sums it up so well!



Here are questions that are not being asked about the latest twist of a cynical war. Were explosives and a remote-control detonator found in the car of the two SAS special forces men "rescued" from prison in Basra on 19 September? If true, what were they planning to do with them? Why did the British military authorities in Iraq put out an unbelievable version of the circumstances that led up to armoured vehicles smashing down the wall of a prison?
