The John and Paul of debt relief

"I was open-mouthed as Bono emoted about Africa to a backdrop of moving music and atmospheric lighting at Live8. Maybe it wasn't, but it just looked so stunningly insincere, cynical and egotistical. All these pop refenences are particularly annoying: Blair and Brown are the John and Paul of debt relief, this idea is more hip-hop than indie. It's not just patronising, it's embarassing enough to make you squirm."
