Losing focus on the real world

THE world would be a far better place if more people would just pay attention. Many of us are distracted by celebrity culture, Page Three girls and Hollywood gossip.

In 2011, the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal (KLWCT) found Tony Blair guilty of crimes against peace, crimes against humanity and genocide as a result of his role in the Iraq war.

These crimes would never happen if people paid more attention; if people didn't let the real miscreants off the hook; if the mainstream media practiced journalism and refused to be a tool for the powerful.
