YOU CAN BANISH A LOT OF SHADE WITH THAT RIGHT THERE: Well, it never really looked like Band Aid 20 was going to fall flat on its arse, but just to confirm the soft, sentimental side of the British public, Do They Know It's Christmas sold 72,000 copies on the first day. We wonder how many of those CDs will be going towards the band aid dilemma site, which attempts to find a solution to the age-old problem: not buying shit music, not wanting to look like a Scrooge and avoid helping charity. Their answer is to buy ten copies and destroy them. Although the problem with that - he said, adopting a serious face - is that you're attempting to help the poorest of the planet by demonstrating how great it is to live a country where you can destroy items produced and transported at great cost to the planet's scarce resources. You could just give your money direct to charity.
