Campaign has been in the defence of the community against the agenda of Big Business and the hold Big business has over the public purse. The ‘rights’ of Baby P scandal Haringey Council social services [ex] manager Sharon Shoesmith will continue to be open to debate no matter how many times she goes to court to assert those. Compared to her still undecided rights and her equally controversial claims to those in context, the rights of the people in the East End of London as against the very serious Big Business agenda evident in the Crossrail scam of economic, environmental and social dislocation and damage are very clear and are not in need of determination by a court via a multi Million Pound series of actions. Why? Because there is the constitutional option available to the community to act in a way that does not cost the public anything yet produces results that would exceed a thousand times the costs of any legal action. That option is in the domain of democratic campaigning. And we have been doing this for the past seven years. The other of course is the news item that Tower Hamlets Council is to seek judicial review of the 2012 Games hosting bureaucracy LOCOG that has dropped Tower Hamlets from the ‘marathon route’ during the Games. We can point out here as well that Tower Hamlets Council should show that they have used the available constitutional option of democracy and or the democratic option to get LOCOG to change their routing decision before seeking a judicial review. There are two things wrong with seeking a judicial review. Firstly that in the UK a Judicial review is not an automatic route to getting ‘just result’. In fact the overwhelming majority of judicial review applications are denied by the court system, which is seriously defensive of the status quo. The second is the question of costs. Has the Council considered the democratic and the considerably less costly option? If it has, what democratic action has it taken over the LOCOG decision before deciding to go to court? How much is the application for judicial review going to cost? Is this affecting the Council’s delivery of vital services? If not how not? [Earlier texts] Counting the cost of court challenges mounted so far by Sharon Shoesmith! The costs, as released in a Parliamentary statement by a CONDEM minister, confirm once again the importance of alternative action to get ‘results’. Actions that the KHOODEELAAR! Campaign has taken during the past seven years in defending the East End of London against the Big Biz agenda Crossrail attacks would have cost several £Million if we had mounted our campaign via courts. Or rather if we had opted to use the ‘services ‘ of commercial lawyers. We did the same work and got across to the UK Govt. the same arguments that any commercial lawyers in theory might have done but we did so by using our own democratic, constitutional resources. Our work did not cost a single penny of the public in any court fees or fees paid to any lawyers. [To be continued] 0905 [0835] [0825] [0820] Hrs GMT London Tuesday 07 September 2010.

There indeed was a GIANT role model whom Gordon Brown aped and now B Obama is showing a starkly infantile propensity of aping. That Muslim ruler lived a few centuries ago. However, his giant schemes are mostly remembered for the abusive word that got added into the vocabulary of the Subcontinent. It is a word that wrongly is sued these days to mean anything irrational. So we say to Boris Johnson – who is not a stranger fantasies and make believe – to give his touting for Big Biz Crossrail a rest. Why? Because even the City of London friendly ECONOMIST has let on that Boris’s Transport for London are admitting that significant cuts are going to occur. Given that even the Guardian Grin is also admitting to having discovered the crassness of Crossrail, and publishing the admission in the week of the latest RMT strike against job cuts by CONDEM-aiding Boris Johnson, Boris Johnson cannot blame D Cameron if he, Boris is the one that is seen to come unstuck on his touting.

The UK CONDEM Collusion for poverty creation in England and Wales is exposed once again this morning in the shape of the CONDEM-backing Guardian lamenting the fact that Nick Clegg their ‘nominee’ [pre 6 May 2010 UK “General Election”] continues to fail to take over the reins of power! The Guardian is positively sick of the dim state of affairs. The Guardian undermined the electoral chances of many small groups by ‘endorsing’ the Clegg-led Lib Dems party. Now the ‘organ’ is unable to substantiate its ill-advised ‘endorsement’. Yet the Guardian continues to fail to apologise for the wrong role it had played. As it continues to fail to tell the truth about Big Biz agenda scam Crossrail. Had the Guardian been run as a teller of the truth about UK politics at ‘home and abroad’ then it would have never been serving as a tout for Big Biz forces. Then the Guardian would have heeded the advice WE HAVE issued for almost 7 years now. The Guardian should have heeded it and told the truth about the UK economy [To be continued] http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2010/aug/16/nick-clegg-hopes-running-country-dashed “ Nick Clegg’s hopes of running the country dashed by prime minister Despite David Cameron being on holiday, the deputy prime minister has not been left holding the reins of power * Robert Booth and Allegra Stratton * The Guardian, Monday 16 August 2010 Coalition first 100 days Downing Street insists David Cameron is still in charge, but ‘Nick will be around and picking up some events’. It is the most power a liberal politician has had since the 1920s, although Nick Clegg’s hopes of becoming only the second liberal politician in almost a century to run the country have been rather set back by David Cameron’s insistence that he will remain in charge from his Cornish holiday bolthole. As deputy prime minister, the Liberal Democrat leader might have expected to follow his predecessors, John Prescott and Harriet Harman, in taking the reins of power today, albeit for just a fortnight in the dog days of August. But his senior coalition partner is not quite ready to let him follow in the footsteps of David Lloyd George just yet. From this morning Clegg might be the most senior working politician in the country but there will be no moving into No 10 and he will stay in his suite of offices at 70 Whitehall instead. “The PM remains in charge but while he’s on holiday Nick will be around and picking up some events,” a Downing Street spokesman said. Nevertheless, the next fortnight represents the most power a Liberal has had in Britain since Lloyd George stood down in 1922. Clegg will kick off with a “virtual” town hall event at the headquarters of the instant messaging company MSN and address rallies in Sheffield, Newcastle and Bristol as he tries to regain support which has slumped since his party decided to share power with the Conservatives. He is likely to announce the appointment, already leaked, of Alan Milburn, the Labour politician, to be a “social mobility tsar”. It is a far cry from Lloyd George’s agenda which involved winning the first world war, establishing a new international order at the Paris peace conference of 1919 and founding the welfare state. Clegg’s brief record of taking the reins from Cameron is far from faultless, as far as Downing Street is concerned. When Cameron was in the US on prime ministerial business last month, he used prime minister’s questions to call for Jack Straw to account for “the illegal invasion of Iraq” causing Downing Street to issue a statement that “the coalition government has not expressed a view on the legality or otherwise of the Iraq conflict”. No poll pact with Tories, says Hughes Speculation had been mounting that the Lib Dems’ fortunes in the opinion polls would necessitate some kind of electoral pact with their Tory coalition partners to ensure that they are not wiped out in the next election. Today the Lib Dem deputy leader Simon Hughes ruled this out. He said: “Our party is committed constitutionally to standing in every seat. There will be no deals, there will be no pacts.” He said the coalition agreement had a life expectancy lasting the five years of the parliament, and after that battle would resume. Opinion polls show support for Lib Dems has dropped to 12%, down from 23% at the election. But Hughes hopes the Lib Dems can come through the next five years as a stronger party. “This is a five-year contract to do business with the Tory party because the electorate gave no party a majority,” he said. “We should have no preference at the next election between the Tories and Labour and other parties. We are going to stand on our own.” Nonetheless, Lib Dem anxiety about the polls is real. So real that the possible appointment of former leader Sir Menzies Campbell to the post of high commissioner to Australia is thought to have been held up, for fear of what could happen if a byelection is triggered in what is now a Lib Dem seat. • This article was amended on 16 August 2010.

David Hickey, Regen.net, 26 March 2010

London mayor Boris Johnson has approved plans for a large mixed-use scheme on the site of the former Southall Gas Works in west London, overturning the decision of two local authorities to throw out the proposals.

Johnson approved the Southall town centre plans, which are intended to build up to 3,750 new homes, of which 30 per cent will be affordable, at a public hearing at City Hall last night.

In January, Johnson chose to call in the scheme following a decision at the end of last year by Ealing and Hillingdon councils, whose boundaries the development will cross, to refuse the application by site owner National Grid on the grounds of increased traffic congestion and threats to local ecology.

But as a condition for giving the scheme the green light, Johnson has said that only 2,500 units can be built before South Road bridge, which is near the development site, is widened by the developer to ease congestion.

He said: “West London is an important driver for the capital’s entire economy and within a decade it will become one of the best-connected regions in the UK with the arrival of (London’s east-west network) Crossrail. Failure to give the Southall application the go-ahead and develop this key Brownfield site could be detrimental to the future economic prosperity of the area.”

A legal agreement attached to the application will see the developer contribute more than £22 million towards the transport infrastructure improvements, education and health facilities and improvements to the public realm, the Greater London Authority said.

A fire chief who spent £900 of donations on two ballgowns has become the fifth senior Tory appointed by Boris Johnson to quit her post.

Bertha Joseph, who bought the clothes while she was Mayor of Brent, stood down as deputy chairman of the London Fire Authority last night.

Ms Joseph had been appointed despite Brent suspending her for six months for bringing the council into disrepute. Mr Johnson had rejected demands to sack her and gave her two weeks to make her case. But it became clear her position was not tenable.

Opposition parties welcomed the decision but said the delay raised questions about Mr Johnson’s judgement.

They attacked the timing of her departure, after a fire authority meeting at which she helped vote through job cuts. Several members stormed out after chairman Brian Coleman banned them from asking about Ms Joseph’s position, and threw out a TV crew.

Labour’s Len Duvall said: “You have to question the integrity and judgment of this Mayor standing by someone who has been disgraced and banned from public office.”

Brent suspended Ms Joseph after an inquiry found she encouraged two firms to sponsor the dresses she wore to mayoral charity balls. She claims she is the victim of a political vendetta.

Mr Johnson’s spokesman said a “compelling case” had been made against Ms Joseph and he had accepted her resignation. After a series of rows and scandals he had already lost political advisor James McGrath; deputy mayors Ray Lewis and Ian Clement; and Olympics advisor David Ross.

London mayor Boris Johnson a ‘hypocrite’ over Tube cuts

List of affected ticket offices

Most computers will open PDF documents

The London mayor has been branded a “hypocrite” by unions and attacked for “broken promises” over plans to axe Tube ticket office jobs.

Transport union TSSA said Boris Johnson was “elected on the promise to keep all stations open and fully staffed”.

Tube bosses announced plans to axe up to 800 jobs last week, under measures to make savings of £16m a year.

Mr Johnson, who heads Transport for London (TfL), said his record on delivering promises was “outstanding”.

The TSSA said Mr Johnson plans to cut more than 2,000 hours from booking station opening times across the capital.

‘Broken promises’

The union, which branded the mayor “hypocrite of the year”, published a list of all 278 stations which it said would close earlier in the evenings and at the weekends under cuts planned by Mr Johnson.

TSSA leader Gerry Doherty said Mr Johnson “signed our petition in 2007 when Ken [Livingstone] was planning cuts at 40 stations and he was elected on the promise to keep all stations open and fully staffed”.

“Now here he is in 2010 planning cuts six times those planned by Ken Livingstone [former London mayor]”.

At Mayor’s Question Time at City Hall in central London, Labour Assembly member Navin Shah said: “Boris Johnson misled Londoners when he told the assembly that no ticket offices will close under his programme of ticket office cuts.”

Green Party Labour Assembly member Jenny Jones said: “Going back on his promise about staffing Tube stations properly isn’t only about whether or not we can believe anything the mayor says in the future, but also about his making life less safe and more difficult for thousands of Londoners.”

Last week, Tube officials said the post closures would include 100 managers, 450 ticket office posts and up to 200 other jobs.

However a TfL spokesman ruled out compulsory redundancies and said posts would be closed through not filling existing vacancies, voluntary redundancies and redeploying staff.

Mr Johnson said: “Our general record on delivering manifesto promises is outstanding and a tribute to the hard work of everyone who is working flat out to make life better for London.”

Mayor of London transport advisor Kulveer Ranger said: “Every station with a ticket office will continue to have one.

“All stations will be staffed at all times when trains are running, and stations will feel safer by moving some staff out of the office and amongst the public.”

1540 [0820] Hrs GMT London Saturday 06 March 2010. Editor © Muhammad Haque.  KHOODEELAAR! TOLD YOU SO! That ALL touts of Big Business bring bad news in their wake. In fact they cause bad news in their places. And communities suffer. People pay for the abuses of powers that may be available to touts who peddle the agenda of Big Business Military Industrial Complex. Ken Livingstone, who made ‘friends’ with Gerald Ronson and his likes from the culture `and the environment of London’s OTT-hyped ‘Square Mile’ the still misleadingly called   ‘the City of London’, did that too. Livingstone, whilst in office of ‘mayor’ in the name of the people of London, took money from Ronson a few years ago. Then he claimed to have forgotten all about that money. Until, years later, the Murdoch-owned Sunday Times INSIGHT team found evidence of the money transfer! Livingstone very reluctantly admitted that cash receipt. And then went on to put the blame on someone else [who in turn and conveniently was NOT named by Ken Livingstone or by his coterie of publicists at the time] in his re-election campaign. That shows that even Livingstone knew that he should never have sought the cash from the likes of Gerald Ronson. That was also historically and in the context of the published archives of media reports about him in the UK, a rare example of Ken Livingstone being caught out.  For in his opportunistic and often egotistic, undemocratic and questionable  ‘career’ posing as a progressive, Ken Livingstone has been the subject of accurately perceived criticisms over a wide range of abuses of his powers in the name of the ‘democratic electorate of London’ but he has escaped the actual accountability of being caught red-handed with say cash in his hand. Except on this one occasion. Cash was involved. And the cash could not have come from a more unacceptable cultural, not to speak dubious political source. Other touts of Big Business don’t behave differently. But they never volunteer information far less confessions to the abuses they do commit and perpetrate. They have to be investigated. They have to be found out and caught out. They have to be exposed. That is the only way that little people can avoid being misrepresented, violated by the touts in place occupying the positions of power in the name of the little people. Crossrail has been touted for by all placemen and place women. They defer to Big Business. The touts defer to the agenda of Big Business. They utter like parrots the scripts written and handed to them by other touts and agents of Biog Business. In London in the past ten years, there has been no other caser other than the smaller scaled 2012 Games Hosting one than the Crossrail scam. No reason is ever given for the secret society like promotion of it. And even when the peddlers and the touts are exposed, criticised for their lack of competence and relevance over other decisions they make, they are treated as SAGES when they repeat the mantra written for them by the secret forces behind the agenda for Big Business Crossrail.   Just how this is being perpetrated is witnessed in Tower Hamlets. It is clear that after their initial failures – when the Reichmann adventure [arriving in Tower Hamlets via North American de tours] failed to produce the necessary legitimising focus for the Right to congregate on the former Isle of Dogs, they have been allowed by Blair to do so and they are now taking over the huge chunk of the East End of London under one guise or another.

0820 Hrs GMT London Saturday 06 March 2010. Editor © Muhammad Haque.  KHOODEELAAR! TOLD YOU SO! That ALL touts of Big Business bring bad news in their wake. In fact they cause bad news in their places. And communities suffer. People pay for the abuses of powers that may be available to touts who peddle the agenda of Big Business Military Industrial Complex. Ken Livingstone, who made ‘friends’ with Gerald Ronson and his likes from the culture `and the environment of London’s OTT-hyped ‘Square Mile’ the still misleadingly called   ‘the City of London’, did that too. Livingstone, whilst in office of ‘mayor’ in the name of the people of London, took money from Ronson a few years ago. Then he claimed to have forgotten all about that money. Until, years later, the Murdoch-owned Sunday Times INSIGHT team found evidence of the money transfer! Livingstone very reluctantly admitted that cash receipt. And then went on to put the blame on someone else [who in turn and conveniently was NOT named by Ken Livingstone or by his coterie of publicists at the time] in his re-election campaign. That shows that even Livingstone knew that he should never have sought the cash from the likes of Gerald Ronson. That was also historically and in the context of the published archives of media reports about him in the UK, a rare example of Ken Livingstone being caught out.  For in his opportunistic and often egotistic, undemocratic and questionable  ‘career’ posing as a progressive, Ken Livingstone has been the subject of accurately perceived criticisms over a wide range of abuses of his powers in the name of the ‘democratic electorate of London’ but he has escaped the actual accountability of being caught red-handed with say cash in his hand. Except on this one occasion. Cash was involved. And the cash could not have come from a more unacceptable cultural, not to speak dubious political source. Other touts of Big Business don’t behave differently. But they never volunteer information far less confessions to the abuses they do commit and perpetrate. They have to be investigated. They have to be found out and caught out. They have to be exposed. That is the only way that little people can avoid being misrepresented, violated by the touts in place occupying the positions of power in the name of the little people. Crossrail has been touted for by all placemen and place women. They defer to Big Business. The touts defer to the agenda of Big Business. They utter like parrots the scripts written and handed to them by other touts and agents of Biog Business. In London in the past ten years, there has been no other caser other than the smaller scaled 2012 Games Hosting one than the Crossrail scam. No reason is ever given for the secret society like promotion of it. And even when the peddlers and the touts are exposed, criticised for their lack of competence and relevance over other decisions they make, they are treated as SAGES when they repeat the mantra written for them by the secret forces behind the agenda for Big Business Crossrail.

Just how this is being perpetrated is witnessed in Tower Hamlets. It is clear that after their initial failures – when the Reichmann adventure [arriving in Tower Hamlets via North American de tours] failed to produce the necessary legitimising focus for the Right to congregate on the former Isle of Dogs, they have been allowed by Blair to do so and they are now taking over the huge chunk of the East End of London under one guise or another. Not least by imposing one high tower after another…And Crossrail, is a tool that is being sued to derive the assault on the economy and on then environment of the East End of London. Progressive Ken Livingstone’s Reactionary legacy! Indeed!!!

1950 [1940] Hrs GMT  London Friday  05 March 2010 Editor © Muhammad Haque.  Khoodeelaar! Evidentially contextually commenting on the itv LONDON tonight report on Boris Johnson’s traceable utterances of confusion, contradiction and callousness about an altogether new airport in LONDON. The fact that even itv LONDON programme could decide to report on Boris Johnson showing his collected contradictions proved once again that Boris Johnson’s judgement was not there at all.. Which is a serious worry. The package included the bit, which they replayed for effect in which Boris Johnson was clearly confused. He said  ‘estuary’ when he meant ‘airport’.  Was it the result of nerves? Was it something even more serious? Yet the ready-made placeman on ‘LONDON affairs’, Tony Travers of the LONDON trading stall at the LONDON school of economics, had no doubts whatever. Filmed as literally standing on a LONDON  pavement, Tony Travers gave his ‘words of wisdom’ on the confused state of Boris Johnson’s mind..  To  Tony Travers, Boris was the man with the powers. And effectively there was nothing out of order in his contradictions, confusion and callousness as shown. It was Boris with the mandate from the electros of LONDON, uttered Tony Travers. . So that was all right then!!. Traverse contrasted the ‘more important’ [or did he mean the only important politician in then shown equation] Boris Johnson  as compared to UK con party leader David Cameron who paled into insignificance as an MP from a single, out of LONDON, constituency!  Perhaps traverse had read the report of the day [Friday 05 march 2010]  that had suggested that David Cameron’s personal rating in the polls done in marginal seats had dropped in the past few days. So Travers was on ‘safe’ territory. Until he was ‘consulted’ by LONDON  ‘mainstream media newsrooms’ to opine of the great matters of the perceptions of personalities. Travers has a track record of idiocy peddled as ‘expertise’. It goes back o his participation in fraudulent bidding for academic respectability at the expense of inner city east end of LONDON.  The fact that Travers is dug out of his lousy hole so frequently by both ITV and the BBC [and in the last years  of Ken Livingstone at the onion in LONDON  SE1 by the LONDON EVENING nostandards’ STANDARD] shows the poverty of thought on the parts of those who occupy  the spaces and the slots of ‘news’ and ‘comment’ in the name of the people of London.  Tony Travers had paraded the lies for crossrail in interminable numbers of ‘appearances’ on both broadcast and print ‘media’ in London for years. Then suddenly, without any sign of any care for rigour or evidence, he changed tack and started to echo what we had been saying all along. He did that when he discovered  that the genuine students of the UK economy were joining the school created by the campaigning daily diagnostics of Khoodeelaar!  No to “MIC Big Business agenda scam Crossrail” campaign over the previously five years [THAT is 2004 to 2008. It was in 2008 that Tony Travers showed public signs of changing his ‘expertise’ on Crossrail]. That was in 2008. Travers’ travesties have continued with his utterly idiotic lines uttered tonight on ITV London Tonight peddling Boris Johnson. It is only a matter of time before he ‘untraceably’ [!!!!]  Assumes the opposite and ‘opines’ to echo what is bound to become the ‘norm’ in the not too distant future: that Boris Johns has been acting at odds with the requirements of office.  The demands of office, the responsibilities of office which he held in the name of the people of London and which warranted that he behaved with manifest care and attention and competence. Watch this space.

  • 1815 Hrs GMT London Sunday 03 January 2010: Editor © Muhammad Haque. KHOODEELAAR! TOLD YOU SO!  Earlier this morning. And early this  morning. We did so to put on the record our view that there was no difference between the two ‘main’ Parties in Britain when it came to economic policy. We have done this on the evidence of the latest utterances and exhibitions by the two Parties’ designated mouthpieces. In the case of the UK Con Party it was David Cameron. In the case of the Gordon Brown-fronted Blaired Party [that had been known as the ‘Labour Party’] it was Ben Badshow [Oops, Ben BRADSHAW] who did the spouting and the uttering. And what utter untruthfulness they both uttered! These time-servers, Cameron and Bradshaw are not mechanical robots. They possess faculties of rational thinking. At least that is what it says on the label. MPs! But they both parrot. Who? They parrot their true bosses, Big Business . There is thus no prospect of democratic accountability to the UK public emerging in the ‘New Year’ for Government decisions. Or for decisions that are made in the name of Government. Or for decisions that are made by the head of the Government as the spinmeisters decide he should do to keep up with the frenzied, the frenetic addiction to ‘politics and Government by latching forever onto catchy headlines’. So we find G Brown is flaunted by his ill-informed and ignorant propagandists today [Sunday 3 January 2010] as at once resembling a hard hat-wearing soldier [who has come out fighting, as the supplicatory, OTT-‘loyal’ Mirror group website has him this afternoon] while elsewhere on the propaganda sphere Gordon Brown is reported, again in the past 100 minutes or so, as having declared another plan involving spending worth £Billions. One full hundred billion Pounds  worth of expenditure!…There is no evidence on that showing that G Brown is on this planet Earth any more. Let alone that he is on the soil in Britain. Had he been in either place, he would have found that the UK GDP is a function of a maximum  capacity which is far smaller than these huge, gigantic sums would want and need it to be. Add up all the known active ‘economic’ variables for a given productive period and what do you find? You cannot even find productivity that matches a fraction of One hundred Billion Pounds worth of debt and liabilities…. In this trend of irrationality, imprudence reigns supreme and accordingly, wasteful, debts-amassing Crossrail will roll! All the way into the deep, deep hole of debt ands despondency…[To be continued

UK Interior Minister

Theresa May has been caught behaving Nasty!

She targets a vulnerable woman for deportation. Theresa May’s “unbelievable” response to an immigration-deportation case ruling has been condemned by the fortnightly English publication “Private Eye”. We reproduce their article below. It concerns the case of a woman called Nicole ….

May sets her sights on an easy target
Deportation, Issue 1397
may niekerk.jpg
MAY DAZE: Home secretary Theresa May is to appeal against a tribunal decision that Nicole van Niekerk ‘enhances the cultural life of the UK’ and should be allowed to stay in Britain
THE Home Office continues to display as little compassion as it does common sense when it comes to picking easy targets for deportation.

Even though the government wants to be seen to be doing something to reduce net migration, it has always maintained that it “welcomes” highly skilled overseas workers who make a significant contribution to the UK. The van Niekerk family, who came to the UK from South Africa in 2008, have certainly done that.

Benita van Niekerk came under the “Tier 1” points system to take a job as a senior systems analyst. Her husband Eugene is an educational psychologist, and their three children, aged 15 to 19 at the time, were then all still in education. Both parents paid higher-rate income tax and spent more than £160,000 on their children’s education; and in 2013 they were given indefinite leave to remain in the UK – all except their eldest daughter, Nicole.

Extension refused
Because she was over 18, the family had been advised (wrongly, it seems) that instead of coming in as a “dependant” under the highly skilled worker system, she should apply in her own right for a student visa to take up a place to study drama at the University of Essex – even though she was (and still is) “dependent” on her family.

In 2013, extensions to her visa were refused, meaning she could no longer study for a master’s degree or take up work offers; and in June 2014 she was sent a deportation order. Her application to the Home Office for leave to remain on the grounds of her right to a private and family life with her parents and siblings was turned down, even though the stress of being parted from the family was by then taking its toll on her mental health.

In January this year, pending an appeal to a tribunal, she was granted temporary leave to stay, while having to report once a month to a police station – in the words of her father “like a criminal”. This only added to her stress.

‘Worthy member of her community’
Finally, in May, an immigration tribunal ruled in her favour: the judge found that Nicole was and is, because of her health, dependent upon her family and was indeed entitled to a family life. Nicole, who volunteers at a local charity day centre in east London, providing meals and music lessons, and helps organise the local music festival, is, the tribunal judge said, “a worthy member of her community and hence enhances the cultural life of the UK”.

And Theresa May’s response?

Almost unbelievably the home secretary is to appeal – and hence waste more taxpayers’ money in her determination to kick Nicole out.

The Shadwell Residents Annual Iftar Gathering

was held at the Tarling Estate Tenants’ Hall

on Tuesday 14 July 2015.

Our Campaign was invited at short

notice by Mr Abdul Latif Khan. He is

a permanent fixture in the area.

As are a few of the others who helped organise the

Annual Iftar gathering.

This is the fist of a series of AADHIKAR Online

Pieces about that and in the

You can read the later pieces by

following

first the Shadwell Residents Iftar Gathering.

It was very noisy. And the sound system was

screechy. Hardly a sentence was coming

across coherently. But otherwise, the

atmosphere was quietly convivial. Hardly

a tense moment. No rivalry. No rush to

outsmart anyone else. Just the way

an evening breaking the fast should be

like… Of course there was no reading

of the Poetry of the Rebel Poet

Qazi Nazrul Islam. Who he? He

is the Poet who also wrong almost

5000 lyrics in his native Bangle

a 100 years ago. Nazrul also wrote

some of the world’s most

universal lines, including his

Shamyabadi. And of our the

Rebel – Beedroohee.

In Beedroohee, Nazrul defied

the Himalayas. Also known

as Mount Everest. That Everest

was the name of a British man.

But the Himalayas is the real

name. I have translated it to

the Abode of Ice. Which is how

the Rebel Poem addresses it:

My head is high!

My head isn’t bowed.

It is the Himalayas whose

peak is bowed!

What a line!

What a statement!

Defying the mighty mountain

the highest one on the whole

planet Earth!

Now that is called a Rebel

of a Poem!

So Nazrul is the one who

wrote hat Poem.

And, not surprisingly,

he was made the National

Poet of Bangladesh where

Bangla, his mother tongue.

is the language of many.

LBTH

Sent by email on Monday 08 July 2013

to

Key decisions made at the end of the Action Seminar on Saturday 6 July 2013:

1. That the takeover of the western areas of the LBTH by Big Developers and associated incursions and invasions were taking place with the participation of the Tower Hamlets Council which was LEAVING the community out of the contacts, communications, negotiations that have been taking place and are taking place between the LBTH COuncil and those parties and their agents and agencies. THIS was having a manifest and demonstrable adverse effects on the Community from the standpoint of the anti-discrimination legislation that has been in the UK statute Books for decades. One of the most directly adversely affected groups in the population has been and is the Bangladeshi community in the area. Others with similar ethnic, racial, cultural and related faith orientations and interests and affiliations have also been adversely affected. This process of planned displacements has been taking place with no evidence that Tower Hamlets Council is active over this as the electorally representative body that should be supporting the people, the electorate and the key community housing the electorate, over the huge range of planned attacks that have been going on in the programme that could only have been conceived by the combined inputs from Big Business, City of London and those  parts of “Business” that remain still dedicated to a pro-racist, racist and apartheid programme for Britain. The beneficiaries of the LBTH Council’s abdication of its democratic and representative duties and of the Council’s abandonment of its option for interventions to defend the community have been the property speculators, land-grabbers and Big Business that have been making strategic sorties for decades to take over the area. The Crossrail hole plot and the ploy to get rid of the word “Banglatown” are two of the most recent examples of that Agenda being active against the parts of Tower Hamlets covered in these analyses and URGENT ACTION CALLS.

2. That the elected councillors for the Spitalfields and Banglatown Ward and those for the adjoining Wards of Weavers and Whitechapel were not engaged as elected representatives of the Community on the key decisions being made in this context.

3. That Tower Hamlets Council has no programme to protect the Community in the areas covered and that it must have a programme as based on the evidence and most importantly as based on the long-standing views of those who have been defending the community on every key economic, planning, environmental, social, demographic, democracy crisis and critical point stretching back decades.

5. That the Executive Mayor be given the opportunity to urgently meet with the Race Equality in Tower Hamlets organisation and to take steps for the LBTH Council to 

[a] address the LBTH Council’s duties and role in the context of the Race Relations, the Human Rights and the Equalities Acts in this context and

KHOODEELAAR! Campaign leading the Evidential Defence of the Community in the

East End of London: UPDATER Commentary on the “Bethnal Green School Girls” “two now married” and “in Syria” –

Part 1.

The BBC News Channel has just in the last few minutes aired a package on the school girls. Presenter Gavin Esler has done yet another laid back version on the “updates” that really haven’t given views anything new.No insight from the spokesperson for the girls’ families that Esler interviewed “live”.

It looks as if even the BBC, with their still considerable resources (which are overwhelmingly larger than the £150 million “shortfall” and “resultant” cuts stunt they have staged this past week) and networks of news gatherers cannot find much to break the impasse and the uncertainties that has dominated the “bulletins” about these girls.

The only thing that has been “certain” is that the school girls are in Syria and that is about it.

Nobody has yet said anything about their actual thoughts, their feelings, their views.

As uncached, different, free individuals, whether heir are teenagers or children.

Nor, it seems, did the “spokesperson”, who

spoke words to the BBC’s Gavin Esler saying that the girls must have made a “choice” – appear  t know anything for certain.

Except that new concept he oddly stated: “choice”

That was the ruling, ringing note on which the the package ended on the BBC News Channel at 0926 GMT or thereabouts  today.

That concept of “choice” is quite odd, because that removes the  consideration that the girls had, up to most recently, been referred to as children, which is what they are.

And they are children under English, British law.

They will remain children for at least a few more years.

So to introduce the concept of “choice” makes the observer wonder what might have been the basis for that.

We do not have the choice to specify what the basis is.

What we can ask, Campaigning in the East End of London as we do these diagnoses,  is: what is the “new mayor” in the East London Borough of Tower Hamlets actually doing about any of it, in so far he is able to, committed to do, bearing in mind all the impact and the implications for the Community in the East End of London?

There isn’t anything  from the “new mayor” in place in Tower Hamlets Council about these “Bethnal Green School Girls”.

There is a prominent image of the “new mayor” that catches the eye of the reader picking up the first page of the latest “East End Lies”. The “new mayor” is being served

brazenly opportunistic slices of “goodies” to keep his ego inflated by the script-writers and maneuverers  responsible for the “new” “East End Lies” “serving” the “new mayor”.

Their trailer on that  first page about the contact list of the Councillors is

“Meet Your New Mayor”!

Whatever for?

What is it about the “new” mayor that the people in the Community want to “meet him” about?

In any case, that headline too is another East End Lie by the “East End Lies”

It doesn’t tell us anything about meeting John Biggs at all.

It is another hype, another name but the same emptiness that the “East End Lies” “serves”.

What John Biggs has to be wary of: is this ploy designed to get him off course and KEEP HIM off the contact he desperately needs with the duties that he must deliver?

The millions of things that the thousands of Complaints against the Council concern.

OK, so, it is not “millions”?

How many is it, then?

Will John Biggs tell us the numbers, since the “East End Lies” hasn’t and won’t do?

KHOODEELAAR! Action Digital Evidence UPDATER Commentary

Carole Swords speaks at] the KHOODEELAAR! Demo in Brick Lane

opposing Alan Johnson’s visit

in June 2007.

The KHOODEELAAR! Action had been based on Alan Johnson’s voting record and role as a backer of the Big Biz Agenda Crossrail Hole Plot contained in the then Crossrail Bill being processed through the House of Commons

The power of the KHOODEELAAR! Action was evident et in the fact that Jim Fitzpatrick, one of two local MPs, was forced to ATTEMPT to justify the Crossrail Hole Plot!

Fitzpatrick found out that he was no match to the KHOODEELAAR! Action, as later also proved in the TV coverage of the Action. Alan Johnson, who was meeting “local”  Party members in a a Bangladeshi restaurant in the Osborn Street (joining Brick Lane from the south)  was seen almost running as he sprinted towards the Whitechapel Road on leaving the venue.

Our Ethical, Moral, Transparent Narrative on the wrong role played by Alan Johnson continued and he was able to hear the clear calls on him and his likes to stop letting the Community in the East End down.

0100 GMT Thursday 2 July 2015. Richard Desmond owns the Daily Express. Readers of “Private Eye” know him as Dirty Desmond The fortnightly “Private Eye” has a long piece about the listable lies and fakery that Desmond has stuffed his ‘’autobiographical’ book’ with. To the KHOODEELAAR! Campaign, there were more immediately relevant and racistly repulsive lies and fakeries told by the Express in 2013. We here refer to the completely openly hateful racist and untruthful piece carried by the Express website in september 2013. W are taking action against the Daily Express Group for those toxic racist lies. The action is also accusing the Daily Express of publishing at the relevant time and on the relevant occasions the alleged work of a demonstrable thief who had been stealing our work and is still doing so as we post this in the early hours (0100 GMT) on Thursday 2 July 2015. As a preparation to our UPDATER reports on that action we cite below the full texts of the “Private Eye” piece which we have just retrieved from the Private Eye web site.

Richard Desmond owns the Daily Express.

Readers of “Private Eye” know him as Dirty Desmond The fortnightly “Private Eye” has a long piece about the listable lies and fakery that Desmond has stuffed his  ‘’autobiographical’ book’ with.

To the KHOODEELAAR! Campaign, there were more immediately relevant and racistly repulsive lies and fakeries told by the Express in 2013.

We here refer to the completely openly hateful racist and untruthful piece carried by the Express website in september 2013.

Dirty dealings stranger than fiction
Richard Desmond, Issue 1395
AMONG the few certified accuracies in The Real Deal, Richard Desmond’s eagerly awaited autobiography (Random House, £20), are his name, his date of birth and his favourite food.
Most of the rest is fantasy and distortions.
Or “folklore” as Desmond claimed, rebutting a TV interview with Benjamyn Damazer who complained that every Monday at school Damazer was threatened by Desmond – “pinning me up against the wall with my legs dangling in the air” – and forced to hand over one shilling.

Violence played a big part in Desmond’s early life, laying the foundations of a fortune built on advertising, magazines, pornography and TV which led to becoming Ukip’s major sponsor.

Understandably, Desmond has not admitted to his frequent brutal verbal violence directed against his staff and enemies. He also denies personally hitting anyone, which will surprise Ted Young, the 5ft 5ins head of production. Young was hit by Desmond on 2 September 2004, accompanied by the immortal question: “Why the fuck haven’t you got Carl Wayne in the paper?” Wayne was a singer in the 1960s. Fearing more violent attacks from Desmond, Young fled home and eventually received substantial damages.

Assaulted by the mafia
Desmond does however write that Paul Raymond – the porn king who claimed Desmond stole his staff and ideas to create his own porn empire – is accused of involvement in burning someone to death; and he accuses the Australian billionaire Kerry Packer of threatening him: “I will slit your throat from ear to ear.” Conveniently, both are dead.

Not dead is Philip Bailey, formerly Desmond’s trusted managing director (demoted to a minnow in his book), who was violently assaulted in 1992 by the mafia in New York. The terror was a warning to Desmond to repay £1m or suffer the same treatment in punishment for a double cross. Yet Desmond coyly writes: “I do not know exactly what happened to Bailey”; and pleads legal helplessness when the Sunday Times “implied” that he had a relationship with the mafia. He omits to mention that when asked by the Sunday Times to provide a sworn statement that he had no relationship with the Gambino family, the newspaper received no reply.

As Desmond writes: “I was beginning to realise that crime doesn’t really pay” – but not quite. With the help of Joe Salama and Lee Bowden on his advertising sales team, Desmond had persuaded Norman Chanes and Richard “Ricky” Martino of John Gotti’s crime family to buy advertisements for premium-rate sex chatlines in his porn magazines during their visit to his Docklands office. Naively, the mafia men did not spot the vastly inflated circulation figures provided by Martin Ellice, Desmond’s honcho.

After no calls were received, the mafia wanted their money back. Desmond refused and half-murdering Bailey was the Mafia’s warning. Desmond admits he hired bodyguards to protect himself but omits to mention that James Brown, his personal bodyguard and a convicted thug, was given £2m in £20 notes packed into five Nike bags to be given to Martino’s emissary at a Soho restaurant.

Ever since, Desmond has pleaded innocence about his commercial relationship with the mafia. To his misfortune, in 2005 Chanes and Martino pleaded guilty in New York to a range of crimes including assaulting Bailey. In Bailey’s testimony at the trial and the mafia men’s courtroom confessions, all three described Desmond’s commercial relationship with the mafia.

Stiffing business partners
Another set of court records also sharply contradicts Desmond’s fruity description of his relationship with Bob Guccione after he obtained the licence to produce Penthouse in Britain. In Desmond’s version “there was the matter of ‘specials’ for which they (Penthouse) suddenly started billing us extra royalties”. Guccione’s writ, supported by more than 20 detailed affidavits signed by Penthouse staff and Desmond’s former employees, alleged that Desmond had defrauded Guccione by printing extra magazines and specials without permission or payment. He settled by paying £1m.

Stiffing business partners became a habit for Desmond from the outset of his rags-to-riches story. First to fall was Sean O’Mahoney, his first serious employer. Desmond admits to a hostile relationship but omits O’Mahoney’s description in an affidavit that his advertising office was stripped empty by Desmond, Malcolm Green and another former employee to build a rival business. With remarkable candour Malcolm Green subsequently admitted to Tom Bower, the writer: “The three of us conspired to steal the business. It was subterfuge.” Like so many of Desmond’s partners, Green later accused Desmond of double-crossing him. Behind his sentence “Malcolm may have asked if we should have a contract” is the ballistic end of a relationship repeated with countless others throughout Desmond’s life – and forgotten in his book.

In that vein, he fails to objectively present his relationship in 1992 with Lord Stevens, then chairman of United Newspapers, owner of Express Newspapers. Accurately, Desmond describes how United signed an outrageously tilted contract which committed United to buy an unlimited number of magazines printed and supplied by Desmond. As the seventeenth truck filled with Desmond’s worthless magazines arrived at United’s warehouse, Stevens realised his company was hurtling towards bankruptcy. “Desmond completely shafted us,” Stevens told Tom Bower at his Chelsea home in 2005. To terminate the contract, United paid Desmond £21m.

Physically threatened
Strangely, soon after Desmond signed a near identical contract to supply magazines to a chain of garages owned by David Elias. His magazines, Desmond admits, were “filling warehouses” and didn’t sell. Elias, physically threatened by James Brown, by then promoted to Desmond’s commercial director, was pushed by Desmond into bankruptcy. The forensic accountancy examination of “The Garage Project” conducted by Price Waterhouse for the subsequent litigation suggested a conspiracy. As James Brown himself later admitted in an affidavit to support Elias against Desmond, “we set out to steal”. Like so many of Desmond’s partners and employees, Brown had become a victim of Desmond’s litigation. And like so many, Brown would now laugh at Desmond’s assertion in his book: “I am not litigious.”

Desmond’s last litigation against writer Tom Bower cost him £4.5m. Desmond describes his unsuccessful two-week libel trial as a “not an unqualified success”. Inevitably, he omits a key issue. He claimed to have been defamed by the statement that as the owner of Express Newspapers he influenced the paper’s content to “prevail against my enemies” – namely Conrad Black.

‘Fantasy fiction’
In describing how the jury heard a tape recording of him intimidating a fund manager to return some money, Desmond omitted that he threatened to publish in the Express a damaging profile of the fund manager if the money was not repaid. Two days later, the double-page damnation appeared in the Sunday Express. Yet Desmond had told the jury, after swearing on the Old Testament to tell the truth, that he had never influenced the contents of his newspapers.

His boasts in his own book of turning the Express group in favour of Ukip shows that he does indeed exert editorial control and that he escaped prosecution for perjury.

This book should be filed under “fantasy fiction”.
