Bob Geldof has been having a pop, to anyone who will listen, about the rather daft Live Earth concert being staged in July, apparently to raise awareness of global warming, or something. (Presumably it will do this by using the same amount of power to stage as a small town the size of Telford might use in a week, thus neatly demonstrating what “energy wastage” actually means... but I digress).
Bob’s problem is apparently not – I repeat, NOT – the fact that the name Live Earth is strikingly similar to the name given to a couple of concerts he’s been involved with over the years (his role seemingly restricted to bellowing “give us your fookin’ money” at the nation’s pensioners, which is always a nice message to receive from a multi-millionaire) and the mortifying fact that he will nonetheless not profit from the venture. No, that's not it at all.
Bob’s problem, he insists, is simply that everyone “already knows” about global warming, so why bother?
Well, Bob, everybody “already knows” that you’re a hideously inflated, talentless, self-righteous and hypocritical soap-dodging c**t: does this mean we don’t have to listen to you either?
