Ah well, Gareth-Gareth couldn't make UN Secretary General (wrong continent or colour or something), so the International Crisis Group (ICG) will have to do. Obviously, the ICG depends for its very existence on there being international crises - the bigger, the better - so Gareth-Gareth is hardly going to go around saying that things are "pretty chilled" or "going swimmingly" or whatever, is he?

That's the responsibility of the International She'll Be Right Group, the International No Wuckers Group and the International Sweet As A Nut Group.
