The collapse of the Berlin Wall was a fantastic example of people. Ordinary, brave, pissed-off people taking the law into their own hands.
There is no nothing less appropriate to mark this than several millionaires with no obvious links to the city playing a self-aggrandising gig:
U2 and Jay-Z have played a show at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin this evening (November 5).
Taking to the stage on the eastern side of the old divide, the band played a short set to mark the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the flashpoint that kick-started Germany's reunification.
Why does Bono singing a Bob Marley song "mark the anniversary"? You might as well fill a milkfloat full of bison poo and drive up it in circles round the Reichstag and say that's marking the occasion.
