Worstall On A Roll

The WHO (not the band) have issued a report which basically calls for the implementation of just about every left wing hobby horse going. Tim Worstall is so struck by the inanity of it that he has dedicated no less than 16 posts (at the time of writing) to fisking it starting here.

When organisations start deviating from their purpose to take up political posturing then it almost inevitably coincides with a decline in effectiveness in how they perform their core tasks. As the WHO is one of the few multinational NGO's to have done good work (ie the eradication of Smallpox) this is a worrying step. It might be time to start stocking up on vaccine for a Polio epidemic in the next few years.
