I think it's self evident, not as a criticism, but as a point of query, namely as using the issue of tacling poverty by increasing one's appearance fees to coincide with the Live8 concert. It sort of defeats his own message, in a way. That's the point!!!!!

That's undoubtably a lot of money but it's only natural his fees would go up after he has become a news item. I don't see the point, either, of the first post, although it is interesting by itself to see the amounts...plus the good news, since I'm in the US, is that he'll be making the rounds here. He will have a lot to say, I'm sure...another reason why the fees would be greater AFTER the event.

Mmmm, considering how well off Geldof is (mainly through Ten Alps and previously Planet 24; plus royalties from an old band of his), those appearance fees would be small change.


Anyway, he may well give money away from appearances like that.  I doubt he makes that many.

Isn't this the same man who was violently opposed to people turning a profit on Live8 ticket sales on Ebay?


What's the difference?  Once again the hypocracy of people like Bob sticks out like a boil on the mass liberal butt.

Someone posted an article on this forum criticising Geldof's silence on the G8 going back on their little con trick - and you rubbish it out of hand.

I'm a free thinking individual. And if you become a free thinking individual, you will have a better understanding of the way this world works. Then, and only then, will you be able to see clearly what needs to be done to help the poor of this world. Knowledge is power.

You can make your point without calling someone a moron.


Tango's response of " some people shud be  is fine.", but I won't allow name calling.  "The rules" are clear on this.

The thing is people are here for numerous reasons.  Some of us are old Rats fans, some admire his humanitarian work, etc.  So being a fan means many things.  I see no problem with someone being a Geldof fan yet disagreeing with Live 8. 


Personally, I think Geldof's reasons for doing it were sound, even if ultimately it's not of much benefit to Africa.  Increasing his appearance fees, wouldn't justify putting himself out on a limb as he did. 


At least, he tries. I am far more cynical about other's participation.

OK. I thought I was done here, but, what the hell, I'll bite.


Tango. Please elaborate how I was preventing you from thinking what you want to think. I didn't know I had such powers!


Surly - if I had prevented you from thinking for yourself, you would be agreeing with me by now... lol.

Who said you did?  You implied you could write things because the administators would object.  The only posts we object to are the abusive ones.  I have warned the posters in this thread.

ArrGee: Don't you mean to say "You implied you COULDN'T write things because the administrators would object"?  (I'm trying to prevent this from becoming even more confusing.)

You're right!  I shouldn't come on this board last thing at night.
