a can says the approach was far too heavy handed. they have to take measures to protect the event from any such terrorist groups particularly irish republican dissidents or middle eastern terrorist groups and i don't think anyone complains about the fact that they're trying to stop stop protestors xor exercising their right to freedom of expression around the world waiting is of much greater concern because the police are talking about such squads raids and in fact this is the sort of measures that are indeed used in countries like syria but we used against u.k. protesters including notably leading peace activists charlie reached yesterday as a preventive measure and has apparently just disappeared into the system his family his girlfriend can't trace him they're being blocked and lied to by the police even his lawyers can't find him so he seems to have sort of in disappeared in a rather cath caressed way and i think it's dangerous dangerous path to go down because this man hasn't done anything he might even suspect he might want to go and protest but you haven't done anything so effectively what we're looking at is an

8:20 am
taxpayer dollars i don't know that it's my taxpayer dollars well they got. bailed out they got millions and millions of dollars rightists agree i disagree with the bailout completely so why does the governments keep bailing out the banks. because a lot of people in their government go to work for the banks the colander trius after the. after they. when you consider that a conflict of interests because the government's supposed to represent the little guy yes i would but they both so and that's why that they can keep doing they knew that they were betting against being foreclosed on and mortgages were kind of calm and people started losing their homes is that still ok people who couldn't afford it either homes or you think it's their responsibility i do but they should have read the fine print when you borrow three or five hundred thousand dollars you need to understand what you're doing i'm not ok with the rich are getting richer but guess what this is america more power to even at the expense of other people i
