Bono Does Brighton

“My name is Bono and I’m a rock star. Brighton – rock – star.
Excuse me if I appear a little nervous.
I’m not used to appearing before crowds of less than 80,000 people.”

In his continuous quest to save the continent of Africa, Bono addressed delegates at the Labour Party Conference in Brighton, England today, calling on Tony Blair and Gordon Brown to use the UK’s presidency of the G8 and EU in 2005 to lead an international campaign to tackle the continent’s poverty and health crises.
