UN Secretary General Condemns 'Illegal' War in Iraq + UK Colonel Blasts 'After-War' Planning

Two stories surrounding the US/UK's war in Iraq and the aftermath that's still going on. In the first UN Secretary General Kofi Annan says that the US-led war against Iraq contravened the UN Charter and was an illegal act , in the second a top Colonel in the British Army has accused the US and the UK for failing to plan for after the war.

Bjork 'Medulla'

God, Bjorks new album 'Medulla' is weird. Defintely her weirdest outting since her time with The Sugercubes.

Not sure what to make of it yet. Certainly not one to put on for a bit of easy listening background music whilst trying to work....
