Spice Surge

Fed up with Iraq? Want to knock some heads together to press for a political solution? Seeking leverage to do so? Here's your chance...

The reunited Spice Girls are letting "fans" vote to decide which unfortunate city should be added to their forthcoming world tour. In what is either an act of some bravura or an unfortunate oversight, you may vote for any city in the world: including Baghdad. Obviously this is the sort of thing the internet was made for..

If the prospect of a "Spice Invasion" doesn't concentrate Iraqi minds it's hard to know what can.  Alternatively, you may feel that Iraq has suffered so many agonies that it can probably cope with one more.
