A Mother’s Letter To Blair

Antiwar Leaflet

When the death of the 100th soldier was announced on television, I was appalled to hear that instruction had come from you not to hype up the significance of the number. If this is correct, you have little humanity and do not deserve an army who are not able to question the politics and decisions made, but have to go where they are told. I was interested to hear about Maya Anne Evans, who was arrested for peacefully reading out the names of the dead soldiers, including my son, at the Cenotaph. She was arrested by 14 police officers, received a criminal record, and was fined £100.

A Ministry of Defence poll found that up to 65% of Iraqi citizens supported attacks on British troops, less than 1% thought allied military involvement was helping their situation, and 82% were strongly opposed to the presence of coalition troops in their country. For nearly two years, the British public has been inundated with US and British “exit strategies”. You should not need such a strategy when the above statistics speak for themselves, and the Iraqi people want us out.

Pauline Hickey’s son was killed in Blair’s insane oil crusade. Please take the time to read her letter to Blair in full, linked above.

Something tells me Butcher Blair won’t bother reading it.

BBC Apologises Over RIAA/BPI Propaganda

Sony Cunts

First though, an apology. File sharing is not theft. It has never been theft. Anyone who says it is theft is wrong and has unthinkingly absorbed too many Recording Industry Association of America press releases. We know that script line was wrong. It was a mistake. We’re very, very sorry.

If copyright infringement was theft then I’d be in jail every time I accidentally used football pix on Newsnight without putting “Pictures from Sky Sport” in the top left corner of the screen. And I’m not. So it isn’t. So you can stop telling us if you like. We hear you.

I didn’t see the original Newsnight report but judging from the hail of outraged comments, it must have been a Sun-tastic piece of hysterical tabloid reporting. This is what happens when the RIAA, an organisation that supports implanting illegal spy viruses on your computer, is allowed to define the discourse.

Remember, if the RIAA and BPI had their way, you couldn’t listen to any music you’d bought apart from when they dictated. If they could, they’d love to tag your every single play and make everyone in your household buy separate copies of the same CD.
