Dublin City Council has finally decided to give Bob Geldof freedom of the city – ie to graze his 17 Kentish sheep (or is that ‘sheep of Kent’?) on Stephen’s Green. He first heard about it when Ryan Tubridy’s researcher texted him this morning. Still, he gave a marvellous impromptu interview on how Dublin has changed from the mean streets of his youth. His one liner on the US government response to the New Orleans disaster: ‘sheer muscle bound incompetence‘.
