Those students were asleep in their college dorm and they were attached by cowards in the name of god.

TH school languages day

I am all in favour of Tower Hamlets kids learning another language. Provided that the language is not their mother tongue and they can speak English and read it as well.

TH honey pot

Good to see that people in Tower Hamlets are trying to save the British bee.

IPCC report

There appears to be not much going on in Tower Hamlets judging by the lack of stories. However this means that I can discuss the IPCC report which I agree with as it makes a lot of sense from the media coverage.

Solar in California

This is a interesting article about a new solar farm in California using mirrors. To be honest I don't know much about it so I can't make any comment on the comments on the site by people.

Any feed back on my Sony reader question? This is the last time I will be asking this.

Streetlife

Tower Hamlets police are using it but I never heard of it before.

TH V Boris over rents

Actually it is not just Tower Hamlets Council but also 7 other London councils over rents on affordable homes. It is going to be interesting to see this develop but the lawyers will make a lot of money out of it.

Squatters and TH

Squatters have taken over an empty building which Tower Hamlets left empty for 2 years which is a disgrace. Good to see that Peck is still fighting the good fight in Tower Hamlets even though he is no longer Labour leader.

Ghana solar project

It is good and exciting development to see that there will be a new solar project aimed at women in Ghana. This article also discusses other organisations like SolarAid and Solar Sister.

Westgate terrorism

It is disgusting what happened in Nairobi and those that did it should be brought to justice. People have a right to shop in peace and safety.

BBC on Green and TH

The BBC has an article on Colin Green and Tower Hamlets. He gave up before it developed.

Lahore Grammer good job

Lahore Grammer School (LGS-55 main) is doing a excellent job teaching children about other religions. This article reminds me of an RE teacher beaten up in Tower Hamlets. ET thank you for been the voice of reason in Pakistan as for Mubasher Luqman he should come and live in Tower Hamlets. A place where a lot of people share his views on religion sadly. This article links to a number of excellent articles including one about lies in Pakistani texts. With places like LGS-55 main there is hope for Pakistan.

Good to see that Mr Green has resigned from Tower Hamlets.

Impact of bedroom tax on TH

I am calling it a bedroom tax as the Advertiser calls it that though the name does not matter. Anyway there is a report from False Economy about the impact that it is having on residents in Tower Hamlets.

Speak English

Tower Hamlets is not Bangladesh even though it feels like that at times. Residents should speak English in all public meetings. What a disgrace.

Islamic school dress codes

Those Islamic schools including places like Tower Hamlets and other mainly Muslim areas of the country have dress codes on girls which are imposed by male clerics. Islam like all religion is a male religion with a few clerics telling people what to do.

TSB makes a return to the banking business on it's own right. I think there maybe a branch in Tower Hamlets near where I live but I can't be sure as I am confused by the map.

Let us hope that Tower Hamlets approve this development as London needs more places like this and Tower Hamlets is a good place for it. I am near some places which are been built and I am excited.

TH free school meals

Tower Hamlets might be doing the right thing but I am on the fence on this one as there is no easy answer about whether young children should get a free school meal or not.

TH Tennis good advertising

I was talking to someone I know about good advertising and Tower Hamlets Tennis have a very good advertising idea and it is cheap. The idea is that they stuck a banner at the railings of Poplar Park near the bus stop with their website address. Cheap and effective as I am talking about them.

EDL in my area what I saw

There was a lot of action in the part of Tower Hamlets where I live. We had police here all day today. There was a lot of them. They did arrest some people. I have not ever seen so many police in the area. It felt like a police state or a no go area.

There was a bus full of people not sure what happened to them but the bus was there for ages.

It was not reported much in the news though we did hear a helicopter.

I did not see EDL but some people claimed that some came up here but I did not see any though I did hear a lot of noise once. Some people were scared for no reason really and decided to stay at home. 

BTW any feedback on my Sony reader question? 

EDL TH march

The ES has an article on it. The comments by posters are worth a read. One of the few times that people in Tower Hamlets are united.

TH cyclists protest

If I was a Tower Hamlets cyclist I would be out there at Westminister protesting. Some of those drivers are very dangerous.

EDL TH counter march

I wonder how many anti EDL marchers will be on the streets of Tower Hamlets this weekend? I think that a counter march is a good idea provided that there is no violence and the whole thing goes off smoothly.

Tower Hamlets is home of the Battle of Cable Street. Today it is a quite part of Tower Hamlets.

Birmingham is going to have Europe's biggest public library at nine floors. Tower Hamlets idea Stores the biggest of which is in Whitechapel has 4 I think I have not been there in a number of months.

I have been to other London libraries which are modern and cool and don't look like old libraries.
