Think about opencast men's families.Ihave followed with interest your articles over the past nine months about the opposition to the proposed extension to Stobswood opencast coal site by some residents.
I say some, as it is only a small minority who are against the extension. Given the employment situation in our area, would it not be a nice gesture for these people to say "all right carry on with the work, which would be only for two years more, keep the noise and dust levels to a minimum, which I know UK coal do so anyway.
This would mean work for 115 men for a little longer as these men have families too to consider and mortgages to pay.
So please residents, think about these men's families. Would you like to be told a month before Christmas you have no job?

Chapter 4 of the EU constitution, under the heading of Freedom, Security and Justice, proposes a new European Public Prosecutor acting through Eurojust in Brussels, who would be responsible for investigating, prosecuting and bringing to judgment, where appropriate in liaison with Europol, crimes affecting the interests of the Union.
Europol is the European Police Office, also created in 1992. Its tasks include not only dealing with serious crime but also preventing it, to which end it may establish the collection, storage, processing, analysis and exchange of relevant information.

All the indications are that they will be an instrument for the suppression of dissidents in a multinational megastate.
The true interests of freedom, security and justice can only be secured through honest acknowledgement by politicians and the media of the vast powers already enjoyed by Brussels and the submission of the proposed EU constitution to a national referendum.
