With Helen Clark's imminent appointment to 3rd banana at the UN I am reminded of an incident that happened at the UN building a few years ago.
After having a 5 star dinner at the UN Council buildings in New York, UN delegates from unpronouncable countries in Africa and Eastern Europe ate off the best china, used fine linen and shoveled it all down with the finest in silver cutlery.
The only problem was that 10s of thousands of dollars of those utensils were pinched by those same delegates.
Lets not even mention Serbia, Iraq, Darfur and Zimbawe.
Clark will be in the company of like minds and I am being very generous when I say that.
We all know what she has been up to over the last 9 years.
