| Tecia sites new research that America's intellegence isn't so gung ho as the Bush regime would have us believe... and I think of darling Ron Kovic, the beautiful man that Tom Cruise tried hard to copy in that Ron Howard Film... I knew Ron Kovic in my Hermosa Beach days... And of course was pleased to last night catch his voice on Radio 4 -- telling us how times have changes since Vietnam protests.. and that other darhlinhg London Mayer Ken Linvingston actually invited the peace activists to a reception at town hall -- and proclaimed that BUSH is NOT welcome there! Here's what I could find on this:|
"George Bush is visiting Britain between the 19th and 21st November. During his stay he will be staying at the taxpayers expense at Buckingham Palace as a guest of the Queen. This is rather fitting; one un-elected head of state will be playing host to another!
During the rally at Trafalgar Square on 27th September, Ken Livingston promised that City Hall would not welcome the President of the USA. Instead London's Mayor will host an event for peace movement.
The Stop the War Coalition is planning protests for each day of Bush's stay. By the time this goes to press plans and publicity for these events will be available, see the Stop the War website or come and speak to members of the Kingston Peace Council outside the Bentalls Centre on Thursday betwe en 6 and 7pm for details!"
