As UN Guterres Lusts For 2d Term 1st of Many Hopefuls Opposes Him As A Failure

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

UN GATE, Feb 8 – The moves by Antonio Guterres to try to get five more years in the UN Mansion on Sutton Place by further selling out human rights, banning the Press which asks questions about genocide in Cameroon, peacekeepers' rapes and Chinese bribes at the UN continue.

 But in his lust for an unmerited second term as UNSG, Guterres on February 5 got fellow censor UK PR Barbara Woodward and Turkish strongman PGA Volkan Bozkir to issue a letter kicking off what he hopes to be a rigged process. Woodward even gushed about openness, while her UK Mission refuses to answer written questions from Inner City Press, including about Guterres' shameful cover up of sexual abuse by his crony Fabrizio Hochschild.

 Now on February 8, a first of what should be many challengers, leading over the hill corrupto Guterres to withdraw. First out the box: Arora Akanksha. She's worked at the UNFPA, so she should know just how low Guterres has taken the UN system. From her launch letter (Inner City Press will cover any and all opponents to Guterres, ABG: Anyone But Guterres) -

"The UN has not failed because we lack resources. We annually burn through more than 50 billion dollars. Most of what we spend goes to bureaucracy. Less than 30 cents of every dollar goes to the beneficiaries....Not enough has been done other than reshuffling of the bureaucracy and recycling ineffective leaders with new titles and nameplates.  What ails the UN is a failure of leadership."

What ails the UN is... Antonio Guterres and his corrupt cronies. We'll have more on this.
