British Man Wins Small Victory For 9/11 Truthers

By Bob Livingston | April 5, 2013

A British 9/11 truther is claiming victory following a court ruling that said he did not have to pay a fine over his refusal to pay his annual £130 TV license fee.

Tony Rooke claimed the BBC intentionally misrepresented facts about the 9/11 attacks when it reported that World Trade Center 7 collapsed “due to an office fire, which, even the NIST report says, fell at free-fall speed for eight floors in 2.5 seconds. That is absolutely impossible without a controlled demolition being involved.” The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is the U.S. government agency charged with investigating collapses.

it takes hundreds, if not thousands, of little victories to eventually claim a big one.

If inner

columns did not have their own foundations and the truss (they were sitting on as was the case with WTC7) was knocked out, there would be no real vertical force that could resist the inertia of the fall. Keep in mind that the fall speed due to gravity does not depend on the mass of the falling object, but inertia does.

Paraphrazing: in a vacuum, a feather and a huge steel ball will travel at the same speed (acceleration to be precise) down due to gravity and reach the ground at the same time. But it would be difficult to slow the movement of the ball if you wanted to.

Haha, no disrespect but this

Haha, no disrespect but this is really clutching at straws and I think even truthers will agree.

He was convicted, had to pay a court fee of £200 and if the BBC decide it is worth their time they can bring him to court within the next 6 months to get their money.

I did the same thing on an internet payment in last year of college. Just skipped town. Received a couple of emails, but kept quiet and the problem went away. It was a matter of principle with me too. I hardly used the net in the last month.

He was setting an example.....

So a team of 800lb gorillas have to set theirs.

His move was well worth the price.

Perhaps a little clutching, but partially cool.

Now thats an unusual story

I grew up in England, damn you BBC, for trying to control my thoughts! But come on BBC, first reporting the collapse of WTC 7 about 20 minutes before it occurred? Honest mistake, I'm sure.
