CBI and TWAT*

CBI and TWAT*

From the guardian-
The CBI is holding talks today with the home secretary, Charles Clarke, to press the government to stop the United States using an anti-terrorism treaty to extradite British executives for trial in America.
So the CBI suddenly gives a shi about the fate of people extradited unfairly to America under post 9/11 only when it concerns wealthy execs. Never mind that people like Babar Ahmed can be sent to Gitmo on very dodgy grounds (allegedly supporting a terrorist group, even though at the time they were not designated as such). Also Sir Digby Jones’s comments kinds sum up the nicely class/race distinctions

"This is totally unacceptable," Sir Digby said. "It might be acceptable for the bloke who wraps semtex around his body but not for a 62-year-old executive with prostate cancer. The process of justice is being abused. America is being an ignorant bully. This is just wrong".

Jones is clearly an utter wanker, if it were indeed terrorism suspects who had "wrapped Semtex around themselves" then they’d get tried in Britain, indeed if there was any evidence of actual wrongdoing then the UK would be arresting them like a shot. His sympathy for the white collar criminal also smacks of crocodile tears, how many lives were ruined by Enron? How many people have died because their pensions were raided by greedy executives? It’s not exactly bin laden levels but white collar criminals do create very real victims whose lives are fucked while executives get an extra holiday home and very fat pension.
The fact that America can just extradite who they want from Britain is one thing, but the fact we can’t do it to them is quite another-

America's decision not to make the agreement reciprocal followed pressure from the powerful Irish-American lobby, which feared that Britain might try to extradite republican sympathisers.

Hypocrisy overload there. The fact that the UK would be wanting to extradite actual terrorist who are responsible for the deaths of British citizens and to prevent possible further acts of terror is utterly ignored. They have the gall to be completely two faced, to go tell us to fuck ourselves because we are chasing the wrong kinds of terrorist. The War on Terror is obviously not actually a war on terror, just terror committed by people who don’t have a large influential lobby in the US.

Spot on about the way white collar criminals ruin people's lives. Worse still, they show no remorse. Ken Lay, the chief of Enron, got up the other day and claimed that HE was the victim. Did a blog entry on it at:

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
