The man who saved Burma

The other evening I watched as Aung San Suu Kyi made her brief visit to our blighted shores.

For a very long time I have been a great admirer of hers and I was delighted to see her getting out and about.

I have a big question though.

What the fuck was that twat Bono doing there?  Every time I looked, there he was shoving her around or dragging her along.  It became a game – “Spot the Cunt” – but the game was too easy as he was always there.

I have no time for that bloke.  His only real talent is for making money and avoiding tax on it.  He can’t sing, and that’s for sure.  He’s a screecher.

So this bloke who in my book is a third rate pop singer seems to think that either fame or shedloads of money gives him the God given right to meddle around in politics and give orders to the worlds leaders?  What qualification has he that entitles him to decide what is good and what is bad?  What saintly qualities does he have to meddle in world affairs apart from a big mouth?

Even worse, why do they let him get away with it?  He has the gall to lecture them about Third World Debt while he does his damndest to avoid paying taxes in his own country [which is very much Third World at this stage].  Why the fuck don’t they set the bouncers on him?

Personally, if I were Aung San Suu Kyi, I would have demanded to go back into house arrest to get away from him..

Or maybe it was he who actually saved Burma from dictatorship?

The man who saved Burma — 23 Comments

  1. At a recent U2 concert in Glasgow, Scotland, Bono asked the audience for total quiet.

    Then, in the silence, he started to slowly clap his hands, once every few seconds. Holding the audience in total silence, he said into the microphone, “Every time I clap my hands, a child in Africa dies.”

    From the front of the crowd a voice with a broad Scottish accent pierced the quiet …

    “Well, fuckin stop doin it then, ye evil bastard!”

  2. The small-minded likes of yourself wouldn’t have heard of Burma if it wasn’t for the likes of people like Bono keeping it in peoples consciousness. I’ve been to a few U2 concerts and they regularly have full pages dedicated to generating awareness of the situation in Burma and speak about it to tens of thousands of people at a time.

    Yes, Bono can be an irritant but he’s no more likely to try and fiddle his taxes than the average man on the street.

    So to answer your question, what the fuck was that twat Bono doing there”, he was there because, (and despite the tax dodging and irritation) he has championed Ann Sang Suu Kyi’s cause for more than 20 years. 

  3. When Pope John Paul 2nd died he went up to heaven & was being shown around his new home & heavenly reward by St. Peter, He met many famous & great people but was shocked when he saw Bono addressing a large crowd by a lake.

    He turned to St. Peter & said “I didn’t know Bono was dead.”
    St. Peter replied, “Oh that’s Jesus, he just thinks he’s Bono.”

    It never ceases to amaze me the access & deference granted to this Cunt, it seems he can get in anywhere he wants.

    I have no problem with him not paying tax as I believe it is every citizens duty to pay as little as possible, my problem is the way he lectures everyone else, while doing his best to contribute fuck all to any country himself.

    All and any of his so call Humanitarian work is carried out in the full glare of the worlds media, always on populist issues & always in areas that will enhance & not damage U2’s record sales.

    He is a proper Cunt indeed, him and fucking Geldof for that matter.

  4. Fuck it – Bono had fuck all to do with my “awareness” of Burma.  I do keep an eye on the news, both national and international and thankfully don’t have to rely on the likes of Bono. 

    I have no problem with him promoting his causes at his concerts.  That’s between himself and his fans, but I do question how he has the ear of world leaders purely on the basis that he is a pop singer.

    Regarding his taxes, it’s a fair point that he has a right to avoid if at all possible.  However I do think he is suffering from a wee drop of hypocrisy  when he lectures people about debts.  Most of us avoid taxes because we need the cash to live, but I don’t really think that would apply to our friend?

  5. That’s why I never give to these feckers in the street.FNORD
    I play the lotto and the euromillions when I can and they tell me one third of every euro I play goes to good causes.FNORD

  6. I don’t know why he’s revered so much abroad.. the yanks would swallow any ole bullshitter sometimes I suppose.   He was on Oprah once and it was cringe worthy.

    “I’m not even asking for your money”, he says.

    I think he should just stick to making shite music.

    “spot the cunt”  haha. 

  7. Eric – What’s with this FNORD thing?  I looked it up but it doesn’t make any sense?

    And thanks Anne, very fucking much!  I’m not a great fan of Oprah either!

  8. Not Green….Beauty…

    I think he’s after the knighthood, just like Geldorf. Its just another club for mouthy cunts.  

     

  9. No doubt it wil be no surprise to you and youir acolytes  that I absolutely concur with the view so eloquently described by ‘Fuck it.” Credit where it is due.

  10. Is this Bono twat one of Ickes lizardmen and that is why he wears those wrap around glasses?
    I leant about Burma from the Victor comic. Long before the Bono twat was born. If he and Saint Bob skinted themselves to help the starving Africans much respect would be due.
