The Anglican Archbishop of York, Ugandan-born John Sentamu, wants the British government to do something, finally, about Zimbabwe and its President Robert Mugabe.
Sentamu wants Britain to find the courage to lead a campaign of foreign intervention.
Writing in the Observer newspaper, the Archbishop says, "the time has come for Prime Minster Gordon Brown to finally slay the ghosts of Britain's colonial past. The time for African solutions alone is now over." Sentamu describes Mugabe as "the worst kind of racist dictator."
The international community is reluctant to take a meaningful stand against Mugabe, and while the UN is finally sending troops to Darfur, the beaten and hungry of Harare are somehow seen as less in need of rescue.
