When Is A Rock Star Not A Rock Star?
Some people do have an over-inflated opinion of themselves!
I just heard briefly on 'Sunrise' this morning that Bono, lead singer of the rock band U2, has put a condition to a meeting with our prime minister, John Howard! He, Bono, will only agree to meet with John Howard if the prime minister agrees to increase foreign aid! What a hide! Explains his name, "Bono"....it rhymes with "rhino"...his hide is certainly as thick as one!
A bit cheeky, in my opinion!
Australia has never been backwards in coming forwards in the foreign aid department, and for a visitor to this country, be it a leader of a rock band who thinks he's the new Messiah or not, to put conditions upon a meeting with the prime minister of this country is laughable. Of course, John Howard refused to a meeting with this pumped-up Irishman! Go back to your own stage, Bono!
Australia has always been very generous, sometimes overly-generous in its foreign aid.
