Am I the only one who thinks the idea behind Live 8 (i.e. to put pressure on those at the G8 summit) is complete rubbish?
I'm all for free music concerts, but BobG has really lost the plot if he thinks that's how politicians make choices, or even if the people attending the concerts are there for any other reason than to get a free concert.
Live8 looked pretty good, and I wish I could have got tickets (I'll save my rant about ticketmaster for another day) but I wouldn't expect anyone to be fooled into thinking I would attend for any other reason than free tickets.
Not that I don't want the G8 leaders to be more concerned about global issues - I do. I just think this is a daft way to go about it.
