British Prime Minister Tony Blair and US President George W. Bush are close to a ground-breaking deal that would see the world's richest nations wipe out $US20billion ($26billion) in debts owed by the poorest African nations.In all honesty, I'm pleasantly surprised. Yes, these folks did sign the Millennium Development Goals, but it was beginning to look like they were signed just for the sake of signing.
I mean, anything to keep those activists quiet right? But my respect for Tony Blair would go up several notches if he does go ahead with his plans.
Would be interesting to see what happens at the upcoming G8 summit.
Would be nice if they did eradicate the debts....
Ah, one can hope.
