Firstly, I’m glad the appalling story of how the Gurkhas have been discriminated against by the armed forces has been thrust into the limelight, following their protests yesterday. Hell, even the Daily Mail was moved to comment on their story.
Meanwhie, the Tibetan protests thankfully show no sign of slowing down. I think boycotting the Beijing Olympics is a great idea.
The home office is trying to delay the vote on 42 days until after the May local/Mayoral elections.
And I’m also going to add Banana Republic on my list of companies to boycott (which is annoying because I like their clothes) based on this report by War on Want.
And finally, weren’t we all pleased to see the Daily Express squirm over its apology to the McCann family and paying out half a million quid. Couldn’t happen to bigger bunch of scum. It did occur to me though – it was quite easy for the McCann family to show examples of bad reporting and demand an apology over it. How difficult would it be for gypsy/Polish/asylum seeker/Muslim groups to do the same over the rest of the rubbish that gets printed in them?
