IRAQ ELECTIONS – THE UN SPEAKS

The envoy of the United Nations, Lakhdar Brahimi, has informed the Woolamaloo Gazette of his worries over the possible Iraqi elections for this summer. Speaking from a small concrete bunker while wearing four centimetres of kevlar plating to protect himself, Brahimi told our reporter that regardless of the date they are finally held, the Iraqi elections must bee seen to be fair, credible and reflect the genuine wishes of the population. For this reason it is thought, given the way the current US president came into office, that the Americans are obviously the last people on Earth who should handle it.
