The Corrupt un

I don't this organization now run by the corrupt can be reformed. This is a world of bureaucracy run wild. a bureaucracy with minimal oversight and maximum budget.

Peter Foster: Cleaning up at the UN

The Secretary-General is said to be flagrantly obstructive of attempts to tackle corruption

Last year, a memo from a Norwegian diplomat described United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon as “spineless and charmless.” Two weeks ago, an even more critical memo was leaked, from the outgoing head of the UN’s Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS), Inga-Britt Ahlenius, accusing the SG of being flagrantly obstructive of her attempts to clean up the organization’s persistent corruption. According to her memo, “[Y]our actions are not only deplorable, but seriously reprehensible.”

Under the circumstances — and given that the UN is recognized as one of the worst-managed organizations on earth — one has to wonder what would possess anybody to take up the position left vacant by Ms. Ahlenius. Last week a Canadian, Carman Lapointe-Young, was given the job.

The U.N. is an organization that over staffed with elitist, overpaid useless bureaucrats who are more interested in their entitlements and perks than they are in actually doing anything beneficial for the global community.

The building in New York should be shut down and turned into condos.
