HEY, IF THAT'S NOT FOREIGN DEVELOPMENT, WE DON'T KNOW WHAT IS

Both President Tran Duc Luong, 68, and Prime Minister Phan Van Khai, 72, are expected to announce their retirement when Vietnam's 10th National Congress ends next Tuesday. Their anticipated exits follow an explosive series of corruption revelations after the news that more than 200 civil servants embezzled £4m in government funds - much of it foreign development grants - to gamble on mainly European football matches.

Now, what's the international equivalent of "Thank god for Mississippi."?

"Na Kuchnya, Gorbachov."
