Last week, Bob Geldof fumed at European leaders for having the temerity to celebrate the EU's 50th birthday while there were problems in Africa. We wonder if he'll have similar harsh words for his showbiz mucker Bono, who quite happily accepted his honorary knighthood yesterday from the UK government, despite the UK's failure to do anything much that it was supposed to in Africa.
We're guessing not.
Bono was his typical self - trying to pretend to be both modest and a good sport, and failing to do either:
It's funny because he was pretending he only thinks of himself as a demi god.
It's not in Bono's gift to withhold the title Sir from himself anyway - he's not entitled to it, not being British, not even for tax purposes.
