I'm shocked! Really, I am... NOT

Here's a surprise...

U2 frontman Bono says the Conservatives seem to be breaking an election pledge to help the world's poor.

Well excuse me, Mr. Bono, but HTF do you think you are to tell another country how they should spend their tax payer's money? Just because our former PM cozied up to you to try and improve his own image doesn't mean you've found another brown noser in the PMO. Oh, and how 'bout giving the new government, barely 3 months old, a chance clear out the mess from the previous government before they start looking into meeting any international pledge's to help the world's poor.

Hopefully, our new goverment will be more responsible about those donations, too, and find a way to see it goes to the people who actually need it. Nothing like seeing donated food being sold in local markets instead of going for free to the people who need it, or foreign aid workers driving their expensive cars, living on the high hod in fancy houses, and doing things like sending weekly 2 page telegrams on the charity's dollar. Or having the local governments blowing the monetary donations on things like military exercises - for the first couple of weeks of the month, which is about how long it takes for the money to run out again.

In other words, mind your own business and stay our of ours. We're getting tired of hearing your whining.

  1. Right on! And should we ask him what he thinks of the Libs giving money to Robert Mugabe...'cuz he sure isn't going to feed the hungry in Zimbabwe with that money.


Drop me a line...
