George Clooney has just been named a United Nations 'Messenger Of Peace' in honour of his humanitarian work. So I thought it was a good time to get out an old picture of him.... this one with Barrack Obama ....... at a press conference to attempt to change US foreign policy towards Sudan....

Clooney, who is a long-term campaigner on behalf of refugees in the Darfur region of Sudan, joins fellow actor Michael Douglas and musician Yo-Yo Ma in accepting the UN honor.

UN spokesman Michele Montas says: "(Clooney is being) recognized for focusing public attention on crucial international political and social issues."..... Which is code for raising awareness about the genocide in Darfur.

Clooney is actually away right now in Darfur.

Barrack meanwhile it seems is doing OK...... live out of my TV..... in the Democratic Party Presidential candidates debate South Carolina...... he managed to make funny generous remarks about Bill Clinton who has recently made the complete opposite remarks about him...... Ex President Bill has it seems lately made himself slightly humiliatingly Hillary's attack dog....... and another one from Obama that made me laugh was that he (Obama) was working with the homeless in Chicago while Hillary was a corporate lawyer on the board of WalMart...... ouch!

Cheers Jez XX
