What Denmark thinks

"Good deeds start at home," said the prime minister of Denmark referring to the "oil-for-food scandal", "and the UN needs to get its own house in order." Describing Denmark as one of the most generous contributors to African aid, he called on the developed nations to give and do more (especially on Sudan) and on African governments to fight corruption and poverty, and promote women's rights. "All our aid will come to nothing if countries are run by corrupt dictators," he said. And he didn't point to anyone in the audience.

Hi Allan, no luck bumping into the Anders Fogh, but I did nearly get knocked over by the entourage following the Iranian president. I didn't mention it before because I don't want people to think I'm name-dropping.
