AS IF EUROPE WASN'T IN ENOUGH TROUBLE ALREADY

The poor sods in Brussels have had a buffering recently, what with Kilroy and No Votes, and now they're going to have to contend with Bono turning up. Of course, as we've seen, Bono is quite easily won over - make a muttering platitude about genocide, like Bush, or muck about with some sunglasses, like the pope, and Bono will chuckle and forget all about the things that he's meant to be angry and upset about. But even so: the European project reduced to being a photo-op for a stalled rock star. It's a pity.
