But perhaps also its strength and what actually makes it a democracy?

Yes and all would be fine except the knobends get more support than the law abiding normal citizens.

If we got rid of all the knobheads, we'd end up with only fifty percent of the people left.

 


Let's see SP and the board trying to line up for a piss in the AW toilets at half time before peddling the new stand. We're the Arthur over here and the facilities are a disgrace

Looks like he's thrown in the towel. Can't say I blame him.

'UN actively passing names of Uighur dissidents to Chinese regime:' whistleblower [Link]

"Human rights lawyer interviewed on British radio station said 'her boss' was the one passing on names to CCP. A human rights lawyer working for the United Nations in Geneva has accused the body's Human Rights Council of actively passing names of Uighur dissidents to the Chinese Communist Party.

Speaking to Maajid Nawaz on LBC radio, Emma Reilly said that prior to each UNHRC session, the Chinese government would ask the UN "Whether or not certain people were planning to come." She added, "It is completely against the rules to hand over that information to any government.

Nawaz was visibly struggling to absorb the enormity of what his interviewee revealed. "The United Nations is handing over the names of genocided Uighur dissidents... to the government of China that is genociding them?" he asked incredulously."

China rather than Hong Kong related news, but still deplorable behaviour by the UN..

Emma Reilly has been making such claims since 2013.

This is not news as in a new story.

What she alleges is the the OHCHR gives the names of diaspora dissidents from China plan to attend meetings of the OHCHR in Geneva.

I have no idea if the allegations have been proved or disproved but continually denied by OHCHR.

The UN gravy train is something as a beneficiary you never wanna get off, the levels of pay and benefits are eye watering and senior appointments made from a pool of friends and family. Needs a complete overhaul

Here's the reply from the UN Ethics office which appears to state that there may be merits to the claim but good relations with China is more important
