Mugabe calls for UK to be kicked out of Commonwealth
Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has written to the Queen to demand that the UK be suspended from the Commonwealth.
In his letter he claims that this week’s expenses revelations are symptomatic of the widespread corruption within British politics. Other commonwealth countries are supporting the call, with President Zardari of Pakistan set to demand that UN economic sanctions should be imposed on the UK unless free and fair elections are held within the next six months.
Prime Minister Gordon Brown has responded by banning all foreign journalists from the UK, stating that the allegations are completely erroneous, blaming all of Britain’s current problems on the ‘bad magic’ being spread by the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation.Click to send this story to a friend
