Elton John and Bob Geldof should be shot in the feet for this whole Live8 thing. Hypocrites and rascals, the pair.
It's my day off work, and an acquaintance is currently rabbiting on about these concerts over MSN. Hopefully he doesn't have my blog address.
Why should we take it seriously? Elton John spends £250,000 a year on flowers. That'd feed, like, a squintillion people or something. Bob Geldof is so ridiculously stingy he steals royalties from the members of his band.
It's an exercise in self-promotion for all involved.
Except Bono. Cos he's a saint.
