Ealing Council's Illegal T Junctions

A T Junctions at "The Broadway - Junction of Herbert Road" in Southall, which incorrectly marked - bigger than it should be - illegal.

Plans to hold terror suspects for up to 42 days without charge

Lord Goldsmith, the former Attorney General, wrote in the Sunday Telegraph that passing the anti-terror bill would help destroy the "very basis of free society that our ancestors fought so hard to create".

The Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, does not want to abandon his principles and wants dissenting MPs to compromise theirs.

Sir John Major urged the MPs not to abandon their principles and said that no such measure were contemplated when “Britain faced a more regular – and no less violent – assaults from the IRA.”

What do you make of the Prime Minister statement that “We have done everything in our power to protect the civil liberties of the individual”. Who is forcing him to erode them, apart from himself?

The Southall Muslim Community wants their MP Mr. Sharma to stand up and "protect the civil liberties of the individual”, when the Commons vote on extending the limit from 28 days to 42 days is on Wednesday.

Why do we want all others to understand our beliefs and rejects theirs?

Money well spent?

Ealing Council went through a long process of planning to open a walk-in health centre on Southall Broadway.

Then it spent thousands of pounds per page on promoting it in newspapers. They even sent leaflets through each household in Southall, which most people bin or lose soon afterwards.

Nearly a year after the opening, you can search for the Broadway Health Centre on:
  • Ealing Council website
  • nhs uk choices website
  • yell site

and find almost nothing.

They could not even be bothered to register it on the nhs uk choices website.

Was the money well spent?
