    As a matter of fact – now big western corporations have becoming the ‘killing machines’ under the protection of the western imperialist powers, NATO, WB, UNSC, IMF, etc. to exploit underdeveloped world’s natural resources. The western wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Nigeria, Sudan, Lebanon, Gaza, Somalia, Pakistan, Chechyna, etc. are all part western greed.

    Nice print by Doug.

    Corporation. This one is not in any way beneficial for us but all about greed and power. This item about Murdoch’s summer party is especially for Mulga – it will make him as incandescent with rage as it has made me.

    The BBC posse was rubbing shoulders with Murdoch’s posse and the weedy Boy Cameron and sidekick Cleggover (ConDems) with the NuLabour failures were there for the bubbly. Lord Browne btw is ex BP Chief Exec. and resigned when his personal life was exposed. David Laws ConDem Chief Secretary to the Treasury recently resigned for the same reason. Browne is/was a good friend of NuLabour I heard.

    News International’s summer party – they were all there
    Media executives were out in force at News International’s summer party last night, where Mark Thompson rubbed shoulders with Lord Browne, Dawn Airey chatted to Mariella Frostrup and Channel 4’s low-key CEO David Abrahams made a brief appearance (as did his predecessor Andy Duncan). David Cameron and his “mini-me” deputy Nick Clegg, along with both Miliband brothers, drank bubbly from incredibly tall champagne glasses while journalists gossiped about Rupert’s new super-short hair style (he was sporting an Action Man-style buzzcut). James Murdoch looked natty in a colourful tie, and a couple of Toyota Priuses – the company car driven by Sky execs – were parked outside the Orangery restaurant in Kensington Gardens. They were vastly outnumbered by the gas-guzzlers belonging to the rich, powerful and influential. But the BBC’s creative director Alan Yentob cycled to and from the venue. Let’s hope NI bosses, who rarely miss an opportunity to attack the Beeb for its supposed largesse, noted this admirable display of parsimony.
