UN Money-wasters

Miquel Barcelo - Ceiling Abstract (2008)Here's a perfect example of how the fat cats in power waste money. This garish mess by Spanish decorator - I won't call him an artist - Miquel Barcelo is the newly unveiled ceiling of the Human Rights and Alliance of Civilizations Room at the United Nations offices in Geneva. It cost £15m (18m euro thingies) which could have been spent on helping the poor and starving. It's already caused a political rumpus in Spain, because, according to the Spanish opposition party, £421,425 of this money came from a budget for overseas development aid! The UN has slumped in my estimation. Wasting a fortune on this tripe is immoral.
