Same company to develop swine flu vaccine as the one who just weeks ago distributed vaccines contaminated with deadly live H5N1 avian flu virus

Absolutely shocking stuff. I don’t think I’m the only one who thinks this is more than a little odd.

“A U.S. based pharmaceutical company that just weeks ago was involved in a scandal involving vaccines tainted with deadly avian flu virus has been chosen to head up efforts to produce a vaccine for the Mexican swine flu that has seemingly migrated into the U.S. and Europe.”

Tomorrow’s Show

It is the first show back after the long Easter break and there is a huge amount of news to cover. So please tune in for a critical perspective on issues from the economy to the possibility of a new pandemic. I may even have a correspondent in Mexico City on the phone!

Policing of G20 protests was 'proportionate'

So even though policing of the protests directly resulted in the death of an innocent man, they were ‘proportionate’.

"I can't think of any other country that doesn't use water cannons, CS gas, rubber bullets. Our approach is proportionate and has delivered on a number of occasions."

Yes, because they are the tools of Authoritarian governments you moron, NOT a liberal democracy, and besides you managed to kill someone without the use of these tools!

“We don't pay taxes. Only the little people pay taxes.”

The Elite are fucking cunts. Simple as that.

"Today's decisions, of course, will not…solve the crisis."

Brown speaks the truth…nearly.

"Today's decisions, of course, will not immediately solve the crisis."

We don’t need mothering anymore

I can’t believe that even the NUS is infected with this foolish paternalist bull shit. Give the students some respect for fuck sake, they are adults capable of deciding for themselves whether they want to get off their head or not.

Libertarian arbitrarily detained in Missouri

So looks like the descriptions of a terrorist included in the MIAC report are actually being used. Dissent is terrorism.

Nice one Queeny

What a completely inappropriate present.

To Orwell, and us – the proles, it was a warning, but to the elite – the party, it does indeed appear to be a how to guide.
