well well, well.....perhaps ALL those people around here who have constantly dissed Bono for his "huge ego" and "self importance" might like to admit that they have been a little judgemental of the fella....

it appears today that The Chancellor, Gordon Brown) has finally got the international Green light to write-off ALL African debt...this is a huge step for the future of the continent

The wiser amongst us might remember that THE one Rock star who got involved in this campaign early on and was sincere enough to see it through was Paul Hewson (aka Bono) - even pleading with the Labour Govt at the 2004 annual party conference

1998
February – Italian campaign launch
February – Jubilee 2000 campaigns mark 45th anniversary of 1953 London Agreement, Germany's post WWII debt cancellation
March – launch of Jubilee 2000 All Party Parliamentary Group in UK
April – launch of Jubilee 2000 Afrika campaign, Accra, Ghana
April – U2's Bono joins the campaign

Christ! was it seven years ago? - this guy really is a fucking hero - and a beligerant one at that....i don't care how fucking arrogant here may appear, he's genuine, and HAS helped to make a difference

Can't say I'm surprised it all paid off - I always thought people were a little rough on old Bono...

Cheers

To be honest - whenever Bono says we should do something, my instinct would be to do the exact opposite.

His music is depressing, his voice is whining, his opinions deeply hypocritical.

He's supposed to be a rock star for Flashy's sake. So Bono, if you're reading this, which you surely are - stop being such a fucking moralistic hippy, sing us one of your shit songs and fuck off.

I posted this in a Mr Jingles topic called " who could resist" a while ago but it's probably just a rumor...

"Rumor mill in Dublin is that Andrea Corr and Bono had an affair a while back. I work just down the road from his Hotel The Clarence in Temple bar and the security gaurd at work works as a bouncer on the door of the hotel at the weekends and he is the one who told me the story but i done a little bit of investigating myself...My boyfriend works for vodafone as an account manager so he can check anything regarding phone accounts and i got him to look up Mr Heustons account and guess who Bono's "Phone a friend for free "is, not his wife not his brother you guessed it Andrea Corr"... Suspect.... xx aisha xx

smells of the sweet(aishasweetness) aroma of bullshit so:-
- you come form dublin
- you have ALL these contacts
- one of which works at vodaphone
- and you couldn't even spell his name correctly?

either you checked the wrong geezer - or you are so full of shit it's unbelievable

it's Hewson - Paul David Hewson. Born: May 10, 1960 in Dublin, Ireland

now crawl back to whichever turd-related hole you crawled out of....

I have always and still adore, respect, and admire Bono for all that he does.

You may say that he's arrogant...but The Pope, World leaders, prime ministers meet with him and LISTEN to him. Now he actually gets this new financial aid done too.

I heard Bob Geldof say that he really wasn't up for doing Live 8...but BONO kept imploring..and pestering him to do it..So Bono is as much responsible for Live 8 as Geldof.

Bono is no bulls**t mouthpiece who talks to hear himself talk. He takes action, he gets world leaders to take action. He cares about the troubles of the people of the world and so he acts upon it.

It may seem boing to some of you that he constantly goes off about the world's social ills,
but at least he CARES and he DOES something about it. Sometimes he does seem arrogant...

But more often than not, he is passionate and zealous in fighting the good fight...and that is a GOOD and NOBLE thing. He also uses his celebrity, fame, power...WISELY and for a good cause, instead of spending his time trashing hotel rooms and giving the tabloids material to talk about another wasted, self indulgent, hedonistic rock star on an endless self destructive spiral of excess, drugs, parties, orgies, etc.

None of you complain about the rockers who do THAT, but so many of you complain about Bono, or Geldof, who do the RIGHT thing.

Gee, you sure have your priorities in order.

don't criticse me for your error - it wasn't even a small mistake >>> Hewson/Heuston you got more than 33% of a six-letter name wrong!!!
you come from dublin and claim to have "dirt" on Bono - well your sources can't be completely kosher if you can't even spell his name right - and "everyone knows someone, who's uncle used to wash the car of so-and-so's aunt's dog's kennel manager who once met Bono at a G8 summit"

and no, i don't know lots about the band...queen or U2 - and i have never claimed to either, i'm into both bands - but that doesn't make me "the knowledge" read my comments in the post re "who scott mercury thinks the real queen fans are" in "serious discussion" - i don't claim anything i'm not, and i speak as i find - i can't help it if you don't know what the fuck you are talking about/can't spell/can't type* - ffs - "U" and "t" are nowhere near "W" on the keyboard - lighten up - and don't dis me for your typing/bullshit/spelling* issues.

I don't like Bozo.. I mean Bonafide Bozo... or is that Bono.. Anyway.. I never cared for him... but I will say this.. if he is part of this getting the debt taken care if, he just earned a recheck into his case... I always thought U2 was lame.. but then again I was such a hard core Queen fan that I never saw the cookies under my nose.. so to speak.. since I left the fan club behind I have started to listen to bands that I thought were inferior to Queen.. and guess what I found.. they were pretty damn good...

Oh please - can't someone just rip those glasses off his face and just smash them. He isn't even rock - just a pathetic pop act, and to call him a legend we may as well call Britney a legend (Well, perhaps a bit more - she IS better than Bono). He whines about "crumbs off our table" when what does he donate? He asks us to donate when he has more than enough money than he could EVER want, but no he just dissappears into his limosine laughing.

The real heroes are the ones actually IN third world countries who are actually HELPING and getting their hands dirty and don't boast about it to sell records (Unlike Bono).

To call Bono arrogant is a VAST understatement. He is a prat.

Come on Mike, Def Leppard are without a shadow of a doubt one of (If not THE :P) best bands ever.

U2 on the other hand are mediocre at best.

do you actually know what he has/hasn't donated?
if you know he hasn't then fair dos - if you don't know then shut up judging him!!!

and why isn't he a hero? he's campaigned and argued and protested in all the important places to get £33bn of African debt eradicated

let's face a fact or two here....most (and when i say most i mean nearly all) of the Live Aid and other charity money to hit africa since 1985 has been used up by those countries just to pay the interest payments on the £33bn of debts they owe the worldbanks...so the aid has not often got to those that need it

now, after seven years of campaigning (by many, Bono included) the debts have been wiped....and the aid from charities etc can finally get to those that need it, rather than fucking interest payments

the "drop the debt" campaign has achieved much more than any other strategy in the last 20 years

for that he (THEY ALL) should be applauded...give him a break,
