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.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
