Brown Boycotts Mugabe

Prime Minister Gordon Brown will not be attending December’s EU-Africa’s summit in December, because Robert Mugabe is, from the Financial Times:

“President Mugabe is the only African leader to face an EU travel ban,” the prime minister said in an article in Thursday’s Independent newspaper in the UK. “There is a reason for this – the abuse of his own people. There is no freedom in Zimbabwe: no freedom of association; no freedom of the press. And there is widespread torture and mass intimidation of the political opposition.”

Now lets look forward to the British Premier to take a more direct role in easing the suffering of the “Breadbasket of Africa”.
