How wrong can priorities be

My Piece for the Times today:

The humanitarian disaster in Ukraine is finally front-page news, but only because of a convoy that could be the start of open war. The people caught up in the humanitarian crisis are invisible, and so are the volunteers risking their lives to help.

Instead of their voices we hear political posturing. Tomorrow the world will turn its attention back to Iraq or Syria, and Ukraine will have lost its chance to win global support for those who need help. What a stupid, stupid waste.
