"Enough is Enough... This can't go on"
The words of Gordon Brown this morning about Zimbabwe. But what is it exactly that the Prime Minister proposes to do? That's right, nothing. He's so keen to call David Cameron a 'do nothing' politician with regard to the economy - a charge which is so preposterous as to be hardly worth debate - but he is open to the charge himself with regard to Zimbabwe. All he does is talk.
Yesterday, LibDem leader Nick Clegg courageously became the first UK politician to speak out in favour of military action. Surely that is now the only way forward. South Africa must wake up to its responsibilities and lead a military force to rescue the country. One would hope that the IMF and World Bank have plans stashed away somewhere which would take over the economic management of the economy and slowly put it back on its feet. But that can only happen if Mugabe is ousted. And the only people that can do that are Africans themselves.
