UNDP Watch

August 13th, 2009 at 11:25 am by David Farrar

A few Kiwis will become regular readers of this blog – UNDP Watch.

I only discovered it after it linked to a profile I did of a few months back.

The blog is not run by the vast right wing conspiracy, but by a group of UN staffers who are critical of the for its lack of transparency.

    I wrote a long and thoughtful post on the UNDP and Helen Clarks role, the opportunity she has to sort this disgraceful organisation out etc..

    When I finished I read the BS I had written and deleted it.

    All I really want to say is : they are the most corrupt organisation I have ever had the misfortune to deal with. They have found the perfect person to lead them.

    I dislike Clark and everything she stands for, almost as muchy as I despise the UN and the UNDP in particular. Thieves & liars.

    My only surprise is that there are staff at the UNDP who want this criminal behaviour stopped and are prepared to go public with their information. Even if they are are part of a Union! good for them.

    I read on the UNDP watch site that Helen is already trying to pay off the staff member who is determined to show up the nepotism case and get rid of the cause of the strife (the daughter of the senior UNDP staffer) to some far off posting to hide the situation (nothing to see here folks, move along). How long has Helen Clark been in the job? That must be some kind of record for nefarious behaviour. She is a piece of work. Like a pig wallowing in mud squealing with pleasure.

    Well if they wanted to have a lack of transparency then they choose the right woman for the job….

    Perhaps the UNDP is just guilty of trying to help people….

    I came across UNDP Watch a few days back when I blogged on the lack of research Tracey Watkins must have done for her Helen Clark hagiography.

    There is a UNWatch too.
    Yes, the corruption noted is quite scandalous.
    I had to smile when I noted the UNDP Watch blog posted about Ian Wishart’s book Absolute Power, saying it would help staffers get to know their new ‘Dear Leader.’
