United Nations

That paragon of virtue and clarity and love for all mankind, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, is scheduled to highlight the plenary address at a UN conference on Racism in Switzerland.

The Iranian President's speech is set for Holocaust Remembrance Day.

The man has publicly called many, many times for the destruction of Israel.

The good folks at the UN, or at least, their schedulers, must have a very deep sense of humour.

Australia, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Germany, Britain, the United States and Italy are among the countries who have politely excused themselves from this dark comedy.

Orwell is alive and well.

Wheels Goes Round

It's Monday.

Must be time for another Kelly Ellard- Reena Virk trial.

Nice to know our prosecution teams and our juries and judges are all doing such a fine job.

Here's the really good part.

If the Supreme Court orders a new trail, guess who gets to decide if we should proceed or let Ellard, already convicted a few dozen times (I exaggerate!), plead guilty to something of a lesser charge, like crossing a bridge without a license?

That's right.

The man posing as the Attorney-General, that famed holder of all the high gold standards of justice in this province - the transparent one, Monseigneur Opaque.
