Three chords and the truth?

U2 lead singer and human rights activist Bono wants to talk with Prime Minister John Howard about boosting Australia’s aid to poor countries.

The Irish rock star, whose band opens its Australian tour in Brisbane tonight, said wealthy countries should donate more of their GDP (gross domestic product) to help combat global poverty, particularly in Africa.

But he said he wouldn’t meet with Mr Howard if he wasn’t serious about the issue.


Don’t get me wrong, rah rah Bono’s causes and all that. But last time I checked he was a pop star…. Feel free to give your money, but really. Does this mean heads of state should clear diary time when Oasis come to town? How about the winner of Australian Idol?
