Short Tempered

Explosive and unpredictable Clare Short, infamous British leftist and former member of Tony Blair’s cabinet, has lashed out at the US for setting up a rival coalition to coordinate relief following the Asian tsunami disaster.

“I think this initiative from America to set up four countries claiming to coordinate sounds like yet another attempt to undermine the UN when it is the best system we have got and the one that needs building up,” she said.

Oh really… well maybe GW doesn’t think the UN handles money very well.

“Only really the UN can do that job,” she told BBC Radio Four’s PM programme. “It is the only body that has the moral authority. But it can only do it well if it is backed up by the authority of the great powers.”

That’s right! Ask the Africans about the UN’s moral authority. And, maybe the Americans are getting tired of the misguided comments from UN Officials.

US was “very bad at coordinating with anyone” and India had its own problems to deal with.

Uh… please refer to Oil for Food, Clare and resume your meds. Thanks.
