London 7/7: J7 goes historically contextual

For those still labouring under the misapprehension that the quest for truth about the events of 7th July 2005 is little more than a single issue campaign with single-issue politics not underpinned by real politics, the July 7th Truth Campaign have published not one, but two brand new articles dealing not with the specifics of what happened on 7/7 but instead the day itself in its historical context.

First up is, Capitalising on Terror - Who is really destroying our freedoms, an article that looks at how 7/7 has been used as the justification for the imposition of radical, reactionary and Draconian legislation that criminalises everyone as 'terrorists', yet the true story of what happened on 7/7 is still not known.

Given that there is not an official, accurate and coherent account of what happened on 7/7, how it happened and who was responsible for making it happen, only an official and highly flawed 'conspiracy theory', a fresh look needs to taken at the laws and technologies of political control that have been imposed upon an innocent and unsuspecting British public by an authoritarian regime that has legislated itself the right to indiscriminately take life, liberty, worldly goods, chattels and monies:
In less than two years the UK has descended into a police state. Taking photographs of landmarks is now classified as 'terrorist reconnaisance', being caught in possession of a map has been prosecuted as 'having information likely to be useful to a terrorist'. Protesting outside the people's Parliament is now a crime unless the state has first granted permission and you can be arrested for wearing a t-shirt a policeman doesn't like. Your DNA and fingerprints will be taken and stored indefinitely. Everyone from young children to old age pensioners are actively being targeted under anti-terrorist legislation and this legislation is being used to suppress dissent and opposition to the government, its policies and the way it enforces them. Blair has talked of implementing private police forces and police powers have been given to thousands of non-police entities including amongst others traffic wardens, landlords and council officials.

The primary justification, the driving force behind the implementation all new legislation and technologies of political control, is that 7th July 2005 happened according to the official conspiracy theory involving four young British Muslim men who conspired to kill themselves and others.

However, the government has already admitted that there are several critical flaws in the official Home Office report, flaws so crucial to the maintenance of the official story that the Home Office version of events cannot be what happened. So, if as admitted by the government, 7/7 didn't happen as per the Home Office account, there can be no justification for condemning the British public to laws and administration methods of a third-world dictatorship.

The second J7 article, "The economics of 7/7 and other mysteries of capitalism explained" published today and written specially for the July 7th Truth Campaign by writer, author and journalist, William Bowles, asks the question:
"If a country like the former Soviet Union, armed to the teeth and with the massive resources of the state could not achieve the alleged objective of overthrowing capitalism after seventy-five years, it is reasonable to ask the question, why has the British state embarked on a policy of creating a de facto police state replete with laws which have more than a passing similarity to those passed by both Hitler and Mussolini?"

The article examines how, 'following the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991.... A new climate of fear had to be engineered to justify imperialist wars of conquest'. A new common enemy created behind which Western capitalism could, can and does hide.
Above all therefore, what was needed were actual deeds with corpses and culprits, and what better than four ‘Islamic fundamentalists’ who conveniently perished in the carnage of 7 July 2005.

The contradictions and unanswered questions concerning the events of 7 July, 2005 are addressed elsewhere, suffice to say, there are so many holes in the official story that it’s no wonder the government has resisted all demands for a public inquiry, although if the Hutton Report is any measure of what an inquiry under the Blair government is worth, we would learn little of consequence from one and indeed, it can be argued that ‘public inquiries’ effectively quash further investigations by creating the illusion of an ‘independent investigation’.

For those with an interest in the detail and specifics of what happened on 7th July 2005, check out the J7 London Bombings Dossier. The 31 page J7 dossier was compiled by former National President of the MSF Union (now Amicus), David Minahan, who in his introduction to the dossier states of his findings:
"I am convinced that there has been a massive cover up and campaign of disinformation about this matter."
