Now there's a surprise

The Daily Telegraph is pretending to be a newspaper. It is reporting child abuse by United Nations peacekeeping forces in southern Sudan. Soldiers are facing allegations of raping and abusing children as young as 12.

That isn't a surprise.

No doubt my colleague will have something to say on this issue later today, but the Telegraph leader makes a start. "Yet again, the UN shows itself unfit for purpose," it opines. But, as with the EU and so many other things, the paper cannot come to the obvious conclusion – that this dire institution should be abolished. Instead, it wails, "the UN should do less, and do it better."

Ever heard the words fundamentally unreformable? What is it with these people? Brains, they have not.
