Robert Mugabe Declares the UK in state of emergency

Robert Mugabe declares UK in state of international emergency

Robert Mugabe has described the fiscal incontinence outbreak in Britain, which has claimed almost 600 lives as an "international emergency".

His Excellency said conditions in the European state had deteriorated to such an extent that the international community must stand together and tell Gordon Brown "enough is enough".

The fiscal epidemic has so far killed 575 people and left another 13,000 clinically depressed since an outbreak in August. In a statement Mr Mugabe said there was a duty to give the British people a "better future".

The disease could spread to other parts of Europe unless urgent action is taken, he warned.

“This is now an international rather than a national emergency," said His Excellency. "International because disease crosses borders. International because the systems of government in Britain are now broken. There is no state capable or willing of protecting its people.

“International because - not least in the week of the 60th anniversary of the universal declaration of human rights - we must stand together to defend human rights and democracy, to say firmly to Brown that enough is enough."

London, the capital, has 179 deaths and has a further 6,448 suspected cases according to the United Nations 's Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

"The entire health system is collapsing, there are no more doctors, no nurses, no specialists," said spokeswoman Elisabeth Byrs.

Zimbabwe has pledged an emergency aid package to help tackle the spread of the recession, a fiscal infection which leads to dramatic devaluation and can prove fatal if not treated.

Mr Mugabe said a "command and control structure" needed to be put in place quickly to allow international aid to reach people.

Further deaths could be prevented by the distribution of common sense and fiscal testing packs.

His Excellency said he hoped the United Nations Security Council would meet urgently to consider the situation in Britain, adding: "The people of Britain voted for things to get better. It is our duty to support that aspiration.”
