The 2nd Committee

“Do you want to start debating the resolution or do you want to do gossip first?”, the chair asks. “Gossssssiiiiiiipp”, the committee shouts back like a choir. Well, ‘improving international efforts to prevent terrorist attacks by terrorist cells and single perpetrators’ is put off for a few more minutes.
