    Question Bob Geldoff, A Dick?

    What has Sir Bob actually achieved, other than prolonging peoples suffering and making himself look important?

    Yes, but music career aside, what has his charity work actually acheived?

    It's been over 21 years since Band Aid and people in Africa are still starving. The lives saved back then are still at risk today, all he's done is postpone the enevitable and wasted our money.

    That money could've been much better invested into projects which could've succeeded.

    With all due respect, multiples of millions have been donated to Africa over the decades and it's barely made a difference. Enough money has been donated to ensure that every village has more than just one water source, aid stations and feeding centers.

    So where has the money gone?

    They should not hand the cash over to the government but build these much needed things ourselves as I believe a lot of the money has been stolen.

    Meanwhile, our pensioners freeze to death in winter because of greedy fat cat gas companies. No one dips into their pockets for that though do they?

    Donating to Africa is like pissing yourself wearing black trousers.

    I disagree with this statement as I work with elderly people. Every pensioner in the UK gets £200 heating allowance in December, £300 if they are over 80. This is virtually a year's heating costs. Pensioners die because they don't want to spend their money on heating.

    Bob Geldoff, A Dick?

    Yes.

    Possibly a numpty to boot.

    Fair enough, third world debt is bad and all that. But to call Russel Brand a C**t for no good reason when the poor chap is only doing his job, (trying to dish out awards on TV) is a foul slur on the first decent lethario of this young century and therefore a stoning offence.

    "Sir" Bob needs to have a shave and a wash, then take a good look at himself in the mirror before hurling black kettles in greenhouses. The dirty vagrant.

    Russel Brand makes me laugh. He is funny.

    I think he should pop round to "Sir" Bob's house, pull down his trousers and pants and shove his dinkle through the letter box. Thusly, a golden shower of liquid justice should issue forth upon his tormentors welcome mat, and whatever letters of arse-lickery that may await attention, shall also be tainted. Verily!

    That is all.

    I'm not keen on him. Only because he stole my idea to have a load of famous artists perform for charity.

    I'm sure it's been done before you thought of it.

    Didn't George Harrison do one for Bangladesh?
