The press are doing back flips at the moment over L8. Bob for Prime Minister, greatest moment in recent history, the world is shocked to its core, etc. etc. Excuse me, it was a rock concert (sorry series of rock concerts). Yes it was well advertised, yes it was slick and impressive and most importantly Geldolf did get Pink Floyd back to gether which was amazing. However, come on. The invasion of Iraq, the fall of Siagon and 9-11 are significant, L8 is a bunch of Celebs putting on a show with a message (a well meaning one at that) but a show none the less. If anyone really thinks that this will run and run until Africa is magically dragged from the dark ages all due to Saint Bob persuading 8 guys in Scotland making a few pre-agreed statements they are deluded. A great gig with a good cause but not life changing. A sense of proportionality please. If you wasnt a balanced view look at the SundayTorygrapgh leader yesterday, http://www.telegraph.co.uk/opinion/main.jhtml?xml=/opinion/2005/07/03/dl0301.xml&sSheet=/opinion/2005/07/03/ixoplead.html, not the pap in the papers this morning.
