Here we go again.


The silly season approaches and so our TV screens begin to be filled with the latest images from Ethiopia of the  starving, this time in Afar. Photo journalists and hacks now rush in obscene hast to film and interview these poor people for our TV screens. They did the same last year, the year before, 10 years before, 20 years ago and maybe 30 years ago. Of course this time next year we will be treated to this obscene annual heart wrenching display for our TV screens and ever after. Of course donations will poor in, as before, nothing changes, nothing will. What these hacks should do is go to Addis look for government ministers and officials and question them on their contribution to ending starvation and poverty in their country, then for once we all may learn something about problems relating to starvation and poverty in Africa.
