==Portman Trust==
I have to admit, I am reduced to googling this one myself as I have not come across it before. This may or may not be relevant, but there is a Portman Trust mentioned by Paul Johnson in relation to the Portman family which owns a big chunk of London. [http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qa3724/is_199901/ai_n8837896 England is a fen of stagnant waters, courtroom, police and pen]. Very mysterious. --[[User:Tom Griffin|Tom Griffin]] 20:01, 11 May 2008 (BST)
===Brian Brivati and the Portman Trust===
Curiouser and curiouser!
::In January 1999, when the newspapers were carrying stories that Lord Goodman and his solicitors' firm had misappropriated Portman Trust money, Brian Brivati wrote an article for The THES suggesting that there might be some fire behind the smoke. Many of Goodman's friends who believed that he would not have been reckless enough to mishandle a client's money, even if he had been disposed to do so, feared that Brivati's book, then in the final stages of preparation, would be a hatchet job. [http://www.timeshighereducation.co.uk/story.asp?storyCode=157056&sectioncode=5 Private Acts in a Public Theater]
Interestingly, Goodman was one of the people burgled during the campaign against Harold Wilson. I will have a look into Brivati's role in this. It might come in handy for my Euston profile.

==Euston Page==
Hi Paul, the Euston page was getting very long so I moved the American sections to a separate page here:
There is a link at the old page and a note in the edit history which maybe should have been clearer. I have not altered your formatting or removed any information except to move some of it to the new page.

==Next Century==
This passage:
: '''Next Century Foundation for Peace''' (NCFP) is an elite think tank, lobbying group, conflict resolution organization, media prize giving organization, venue where Israeli neocons meet their Arab or European counterparts, and blog platform to project opinion of principals.  Its principals are made up of "former diplomats, businessmen, politicians, bankers and editors."  Its "deliberations and conclusions of the committee will be conveyed to the Foreign Ministers or Foreign Office concerned in various capitals as and when necessary".
needs a source...

moved to here: http://www.spinprofiles.org/index.php/Category:New_Humanitarians
This could say more explicitly that this is a term coined by Ed herman.  I think that shortening the name is easier to type, and gives less of a hostage to furtune in terms of what it refers to.
I will endeavour to change the category on all of the pages...

Hi Paul,
if you look at the history of that page: http://www.spinprofiles.org/index.php?title=Category:The_New_Humanitarian_Crusader&oldid=43690
you will see that it has never had a reference to Herman as you suggest.  Can you add one?  Also, can we remove the 'The' at the beginning?  It seems to me that the category itself does not need the 'crusader bit in the title.  But it is no problem to expand on that in the description?
--[[User:David|David]] 09:17, 4 September 2008 (BST)
is there some other less loaded term we can use for the 'propaganda traitors'?  I am a little unhapy about it but can't think of any replacement?
