Never Trust a Man in Wrap Around Glasses

The Daily Mail have picked up on a story in the New York Post which raises concerns over Bono's 'ONE' foundation, which revealed in its tax return that it gives just 1 % of its profits to the needy! Oh boy! According to the Mail...

'The non-profit organisation set up by the U2 frontman received almost £9.6million in donations in 2008 but handed out only £118,000 to good causes (1.2 per cent).

The figures published by the New York Post also show that £5.1million went towards paying salaries.'

Bono has raised both his huge international profile and his own incredible wealth through his anti-poverty campaigning. A few years back he launched a campaign saying, "Every time I click my fingers another child dies of hunger."

"Well, stop clicking your fingers then and take out your wallet then, mate!" was surely the only response. U2, when they were good, before the wrap around glasses. Perhaps, Bono still hasn't found what he's looking for...I didn't get the driving posters/walking job, but I may have a bit of pizza/pasta delivery work coming...
