Ban Clothes!

UPDATE:  Fuck off nonces, we know which search string you used to get here you sad old fucks.

the void calls on all decent, law abiding, hard working, honest, upstanding, God-fearing, anglo-saxon, tax paying, frightened and concerned citizens of England to support us in our bid to rid the streets of these unnecessary and intimidating pieces of fabric.

People have a right to go about their daily business without living in fear from feral hooligans, blacks and gypseys who use clothing to conceal their criminal intent.

Clothing can be used to conceal WEAPONS, to hide DRUGS or even as a diguise for TERRORISTS.

All TERRORIST attacks are believed to have involved people wearing clothes and latest crime figures suggest that almost all crimes are carried out by people wearing these disgusting rags.

Some clothes are made purely for the intention of carrying drugs or committing crimes. Pockets are deliberately sewn into the cloth by communist Chinese manufacturers so that delinquent youths can use them to conceal all manner of criminal items.

Foreigners deliberately wear clothes that are unusual and frightening in an effort to make elderly people afraid to walk the streets at night.

Young thugs have T-shirts with slogans on them such as “I’m going to rape a granny’ or ‘Selling crack makes me cum’.

Streetwalkers and commen prostitutes use clothes to entice hardworking businessmen into their sordid lives where they rape them and then take their money.

Meanwhile children, if you can call them that, use clothes to cover sensitive areas in order to protect them from the flogging and thrashings that every young person needs.

Clothing can easily be obtained via a variety of sordid websites which every young person knows how to access. Illegally downloaded clothes are used in crimes as they can simply be deleted from the criminals iPod after carrying out sickening acts of barbarity.

Hitler wore clothes and so does Osama bin Laden.

the void pleads with you to join us to end the menace of clothes and bring order back to the streets of this once great nation.

and talking of disgusting rags

Ban the hood for good

Fossil Fool Day!

“Roll up, roll up! The climate circus is in town. Climate change threatens our very survival, but the fools at the head of the fossil fuel empire continue to plunder the earth, with governments the willing court jesters at their side.

They would have us believe that we can escape climate change with techno-fixes, market mechanisms and offset schemes – all technocratic acrobatics that distract us from the truth: the only real solution to climate change is to keep fossil fuels in the ground.

For over a century the fossil fuel industry has been fooling with our lives. From extraction to combustion they have poisoned our air, polluted our water and ruined our climate. On April 1st, 2008, we’re going to turn the tables and show them who the real fools are.

Find a local fossil fool – the coal-mining clown, the offset contortionist, the aviator tripping on the high wire, the supermarket food mile freak show, the oily strong man, or any other fool that deserves your attention – and join with thousands around the world in taking one step closer to dismantling the fossil fuel industry.

On Fossil Fools Day, bring the spirit of carnival and mischief to the fight for climate justice. “

Are Talking About Cannabis Telling More Porkies?

Talking About Cannabis (TAC) have already been caught out fibbing about being a charity when they were no such thing.

It now seems that Debra and co’s list of ‘advisors’ needs to be called to account.

On TAC’s website they claim that in May 2007:

“A new education and campaigning group, linked to this web-site, was launched by parents concerned that government promises to tackle the health risks of cannabis have failed to materialise, leaving their children vulnerable to its harmful effects.

It is chaired by myself, Debra Bell, the founder of the site http://www.talkingaboutcannabis.com/. The group is backed by mental health charities, teachers and experts on drug misuse.”

They then claim that TAC “are supported by the following advisors:”, after which follows a list of names we’ve published before which ends with one Tory MP, Tim Loughton.

Loughton was one of four Tories MPs on their list and we e-mailed them all outlining our criticisms of the group (I know but we kept our fingers crossed and had a hot shower afterwards).

So far only Loughton has replied saying:

“I am not an adviser I am a sponsoring MP for this newly formed Parliamentary group. Your comments are noted”

By the Parliamentary group Loughton is presumably referring to the All Parliamentary Group on Children and Cannabis, which is a seperate group to the one organised by Debra Bell.

The group formed by Debra Bell appears to be called ‘TALKING ABOUT CANNABIS ACTION GROUP – CHILDREN AND TEENAGERS’ (the caps are theirs, always a sign of a fine intellect at work).

This group is to act as the Secretariat to the all-party group but appears to be a distinct entity which is currently soliciting for funds.

So is our Debs fibbing again or has a senile old tory forgotten which groups he agreed to be an advisor to?

This is what democracy looks like …

Watch the NYPD attempt to give Chinese state goons a run for their money after wading into this pro-Tibet rally and threatening to kill then beating protesters.

Meanwhile Bone’s beaten us to publishing the full route of the Olympic Torch through London on April 6th.

Watch the film the police tried to ban!

We’re a bit late with this one, but here we go.

Gormless plod have extended their campaign of censorship nationwide after several independant cinemas across the UK were ordered to halt screenings of ‘On the Verge’, a film about the protests aimed at arms manufacturers EDO MBM.

According to activists:

“So far establishments in Southampton, Chichester and Bath and Oxford as well as Brighton have come under police pressure to cancel film showings. In Brighton police intervened to prevent a showing at the Duke of York’s Cinema.”

Police claim that the film has not been issued with certification, however as spokesman for the production company SchMovies, Steven Bishop says:

“I am extremely disappointed but not entirely surprised by the police’s action. There may be issues with certification but as we’re not charging for entry this shouldn’t be an issue. If the police really had problems over the certificate they could have approached us at a much earlier stage. Our film although focussing mainly on the rights and wrongs of protest shows a number of examples of questionable police behaviour – Perhaps this is why they left their move so late”

The film is set to be screened tonight (27th March) at the Kebele Centre in bristol with a London screening at The Foundry, 86 Great Eastern St, London on the 1st April and then at radical bookshop Housmans on the 11th April.

Many other venues around the country are set to show the film in the upcoming weeks, check the tour dates for details.

Watch the trailer at Schmovies.

Talking About Cannabis – The Scientology Link

We’ve already pointed out that Talking About Cannabis (TAC) link to Scientology front organisation Narconon on their shambolic website.

For those not keeping up Narconon are a dodgy drugs rehab programme currently attempting to establish credibility by bribing the government.

These numpties are stock in trade for our Debra, founder of TAC spewing yet more unscientific nonsense claiming to be THE TRUTH.

It seems however that those crazy thetans might be cosying up to Debra in more ways than one.

Step forward one David Raynes, a paranoid and slightly delusional misfit who is an executive member of the National Drugs Prevention Alliance.

Raynes is an ‘official’ advisor to TAC and his recent diatribe at the ACMD review is published on TAC’s website (linked from the front page no less).

David Raynes is also an ‘Advisory Board Member’ for the Foundation for a Drug Free Europe.

And Foundation for a Drug Free Europe are … you guessed it, a bunch of crazy thetans (aka yet another Scientology front).

Raynes has repeatedly refused to condemn the Narconon programme and his mate Peter Stoker, Director of the NPDA, also an Advisory Board member and another ‘official’ advisor to TAC, went one step further saying:

“there is an absolute need for someone to speak and act and say there is a ‘better way’. The Foundation has accepted this challenge and represents an exciting potential: a potential which absolutely must be realized.”

Raynes was a former Custom’s and Excise officer who fucked up a ganja bust big time and has been chasing round potheads ever since.

The case, in which a High Court Judge accused the customs officer’s of “a catalogue of flawed proceedings, illegality and incompetence at a number of levels”, can be read about here.

Raynes retired shorly afterwards.

That hasn’t stopped his crafty undercover sleuthing however.

The following is Raynes boasting on usenet about how he secretly taped Danny Kushlick, head of drug reform organisation Transform, after giving him a lift to a conference in 2001:

“Well Danny(rather stupidly perhaps ! ) travelled from Middlesborough to Bristol in my car- with his pal, who is sharper than him but who fell asleep. I have everything Danny and his pal said on tape. Just amazing, the guy just cannot shut up. You can do more than piss take on *one*occasion. I have some amazing quotes to drip feed you all. He noweth notwith what he deals. The first rule of engagement is understand your enemy.

I have Danny screwed up tight. Not that he is a real enemy I found him amazingly frank and good company. He invited me in “for a blow”, I declined. He is a nice guy but sadly misguided. ” more

Nice guy.

What’s truly concerning is that this bunch of pseudo-scientific loons have attracted the support of journos from the Times and the Independant, major national charities such as Addaction and SANE and so far four Tory MP’s.

Here’s the full list of of those who who support Debra and co:

Anthony Seldon, Master Wellington College
Marjorie Wallace, Sane
Deborah Cameron, Addaction
Richard McKendrick, Addaction
Mary Brett, UK Spokesperson for EURAD
Peter Stoker, National Drug Prevention Alliance
Jonathan Owen, Independent on Sunday
Sian Griffiths, Sunday Times
Christopher Chope MP
David Raynes, NDPA
The Maranatha Organisation
Dr Ian Oliver
Dr Hans-Christian Raabe
Camila Batmanghelidjh
Peter Walker, schools drugs testing expert
Marilyn Shaw, Luke and Marcus Trust
Graham Brady MP
Baroness Anelay of St Johns
Edward Garnier MP
Tim Loughton MP

Curiously drug treatment organisation Addaction have condemned Narconon claiming it is not ‘scietifically sound’ which has to beg the question of what they’re doing supporting Debra and her gang of quacks.
