I’m getting rather tired of seeing Bob Geldof popping up all over the place, the last few days. And though I fear for what might happen if all those people do turn up in Edinburgh, the cause is commendable. The least I can do is add the promo text. Here it comes.
Every single day, 30,000 children die, needlessly, of extreme poverty. On July 6th, we finally have the opportunity to stop that shameful statistic. 8 world leaders, gathered in Scotland for the G8 summit, will be presented with a workable plan to double aid, drop the debt and make the trade laws fair. If these 8 men agree, then we will become the generation that made poverty history. But they’ll only do it if enough people tell them to. We don’t want your money – we want you!
