Global: First prize, a week’s holiday in Zimbabwe!

“Step one — we move the Grand National to Bulawayo. Step two — I win it.”

Second prize, two weeks’ holiday in Zimbabwe!

 [The UN has appointed] a new international envoy for tourism: Robert Mugabe.

Improbable as it seems, the Zimbabwean president, who is widely accused of ethnic cleansing, rigging elections, terrorising opposition, controlling media and presiding over a collapsed economy, has been endorsed as a champion of efforts to boost global holidaymaking.

Despite that fact Mugabe, 88, is under a travel ban, he has been honoured as a “leader for tourism” by the UN’s World Tourism Organisation, along with his political ally, Zambian president Michael Sata, 75. The pair signed an agreement with UNWTO secretary general Taleb Rifai at their shared border at Victoria Falls on Tuesday.

Not really religious, just mind-bogglingly stupid — but I suppose by now ‘faithhead’ can be applied to anyone who believes the UN can make rational decisions.

Your taxes at play.
