Dear Mr Stride,
Today in Helmand on the 'front line' - Mr Cameron said the political process should mean "those people are prepared to give up the bomb, the bullet, can actually be part of that process, part of that future Afghanistan". Huffington Post But the bomb, the bullet, the SAMs, the heavy machine guns, the mortars for the rabbles.
The rank hypocrisy we hear from this nation's leaders causes millions of us to feel the deepest shame for the lack of principle and law in our nation.
Manning, Assange and Snowden strive to set us free of the coils by telling the truth. Thus we MIGHT be set free if we join them, even in humble ways. This press release by the Hong Kong Government is important in several ways, of course.

Subject: C4 tonight
I seldom watch the ''News'' on either the BBC or C4 channel, but tonight I watched the latter. I was disgusted at the bias and the lack of corroboration.
In regard to 'chemical weapons' I noted you did not quote the UN lady who reported that a nerve gas had been used by the rebels in one attack. It would have been an easy matter to get shells to one of the c. 100 rabble groups. And if the Syrian army had used chemical weapons 27 times - cui bono . Would my colleague with his FRCS obtain advantage in this? It would be a certain way to call NATO bombs upon his head.
Consultation by TSDHCNHST: Proposal to 'transfer' ie close, all 10 beds from each of the two community hospitals – Ashburton & Buckfastleigh, and Bovey Tracey.

Annexe to submission of 14 February 2013 - 24 February 2013
Some points regarding fault in process and other concerns have been raised in the prior submission.
There remains a need to examine the alleged factual bases for the proposed closure of these beds by the 'Care Trust' from a medical service perspective. It has seemed, at the public meetings, that assertion dominated fact and record.
