Bono has a lot to answer for

It really is time for half-arsed pop ‘stars’ to back away from issues and concentrate on being superficial and dispensible again, isn’t it?

'US pop star Pink has backed away from a campaign to boycott Australian wool organised by pressure group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
The singer angered Australian farmers in December when branded the practice of sheep "mulesing" as "sadistic". She made the comments about the practice - cutting slices of flesh from lambs' rumps to prevent maggot infestation - in a video for Peta.
But Pink has admitted on Australian TV that she did not do enough research. She told Australia's Nine Network television she had not been fully informed when she agreed to take part in the campaign. "I probably could have been a lot more researched, on my own. That's the lesson I'm taking from this," she said.'
