My mother was right

I hate to admit it - but she was, eventually.

"Those celebrities are halfwits. That Geldof's asked thousands of people to go to a place where there's just one toilet!" she said. It was the G8 summit, and the Cancel the Debt demos that she was talking about.

I disagreed - Trade and Debt are important issues, and it's right that people be allowed to protest about decisions being taken in their name that will affect the livelihood and survival of many in the "3rd World".

Then Geldof said: "let's have them cross the English Channel in a flotilla of little boats - just like the Dunkirk evacuation!"

Those celebrities are Halfwits!

Ahem ;)

I take it that "halfwits" are good on the ears, although not on the brain.
