Typical Guardian Leader.

Prime piece of Guardian think here. Absolutely perfect.

But as each disaster unfolds it becomes increasingly clear that what is needed is a rapidly responding international unit coordinating the activities of the charities as well as channelling government support, and ready to spring into action at a moment's notice.

We’ve already got one. Called the United Nations. And they’re bloody useless. Why would any other "ïnternational unit"  be any damn different? Thus the prime  example of Planet Guardian thinking. International bureaucracies do not work to solve the problem so we must have an international bureaucracy.
