Mccartney Contesting Rail Line Plans

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY has joined a campaign to block legislation which proposes to allow a rail link to built underneath the former BEATLE's London headquarters. The HEY JUDE legend is convinced the Crossrail Bill, if given the go ahead, will render the recording studio at his Soho offices useless due to the vibrations caused by tunnelling, and then passing trains. In a strongly-worded letter from his lawyers, the 64-year-old demands compensation if construction goes ahead because "musical and recording activities are susceptible to interference", British newspaper The Sun reports.

Khoodeelaar!

Paul McCartney has just publicly confirmed what the Khoodeelaar! Campaign against CrossRail has been saying for the past 27 months. We have opposed Crossrail, dubbed it CRASSrail, because the project is deeply flawed. If it goes ahead, it will cause serious environmental and economic damage to the community in the Brick Lane and Whitechapel London E1 Area. In principle, we support Paul McCartney's opposition to CrossRail. And we are about to tell him so directly during the course of the day today Monday 11 September 2006Muhammad HaqueOrganiserKhoodeelaar! No to Crossrail 1025 Monday 11 September 2006

Poor Paul when it rains it poors. He has had the recording studio a long time Im sure. And I believe it could interfere with the sound.Could you imagine hearing a faint roaring sound '& the ground vibrating'I lived in a very small country town train drove right through the middle of this town. The tracks was right below my house. You can stand on the porch & see into the cars. Sleeping in the house impossible. Paul I hope everything works out.I would hate to hear skipping & strange sounds on your albums in the future. We love ya paul .Jackie.L. wilm nc
