Regular readers (there's one or two of you out there) will know I have been 'pushing' Burma's plight for some time now.
As if things couldn't get any worse, along comes a cyclone and devastates the country. The UN now estimates 1.5 million people will be affected by the storm and the way in which the junta has criminally not reacted to its responsibilities to the needs of Burma's population.
Are we surprised?
What are we to do?
Earlier this week we had the French saying they would donate only 250,000 million pounds because they feared the cash would go straight into the Generals' pockets. Britain stood tallish with the world's largest offer of 5 million quid. The Yanks attached all sorts of political strings as usual, despite Dubya's Missus fronting Burma's cause.
This week (aye, nearly a week later) the French sing another tune and Britain dithers.
For God's sake just get the aid in and let the Generals try and stop it.
.... and ladies get your undies out, as well as your cash, for Burma.
