Complete Nonsense in Geneva
I think the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, needs to consider her position and leave the responsibility for a review conference against racism to someone more capabable. She has an excellent career behind her, but if she couldn't anticipate the comments from the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad this afternoon (which were utterly predictable), then why create the platform? Now the conference on a very important topic has ended in a complete shambles. It's no good wasting public money on something that was so obviously a disaster waiting to happen.
