Step away from the microphone!

The BBC continues with its extravagant coverage of the build-up to Live 8.. TV rights secure, guys? ANYway.. Not content with calling for school children to ‘bunk off for a week’, Bob Geldof now wants boat owners on the south coast of England to help out with the “continental adventure”.. and transport his, hoped-for, assembled masses from the shores of France all the way across La Manche.. one of the busiest, and most constricted, shipping routes in the world.. nice one, Bob..

As with this BBC report.. Midge Ure will no doubt again say that it’s “just Bob being Bob”.. oh.. and according to that report there’s also likely to be a shortage of portable toilets at the end of The Long Walk to Justice™ … lovely.
