Hey guys, tune in, roll up, it's Bully Beef Boris and his Wacky Races team from the British House of Commons, i.e. a pile of po-faced fuddy-duddies debating whether to unilaterally impose a no-fly zone in Syria to stop Russia exterminating western-backed terrorists.
October 11 is International Day of the Girl. Today there are over one billion girls ready to take their place in tomorrow's world.

The battle for Aleppo rages more than ever, and the clash between the United States and Russia have reached a level of risk which is higher than that during the Cuban crisis.

António Guterres, the People Person, represents the very thing the international community needs at this delicate moment in time, namely dialogue, debate and discussion, the fundamentals of democracy.

The United Nations gains more than a breath of fresh air with the appointment of the Portuguese ex-Prime Minister and ex-UNHCR Director, António Guterres, as the next Secretary-General.
