    Jimmy Saville springs to mind.

    It took them until 2008 to withdraw Mugabe's knighthood and in all that time I don't remember hearing a peep out of Geldof about it.

    I wonder has he another 'greatest hits' album coming out for Christmas?

    I was sort of avoiding that one, but, yes.

    Gotta love loyalists all the same, their queen evades tax while they live in squalor and start silly name calling threads on small political websites like this.

    So deeply-rooted is Bob's post-colonialism that he shows almost equal scorn for Dublin as for Aung San Suu Kyi, saying, "Her association with our city shames us all..." Err, not guilty your honour. I feel many things about the ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya, but culpability isn't one of them. But then I wasn't one of the worthies, like Bono & Bob, who clamoured for her to be awarded the Freedom of Dublin in the first place.

    Also interesting to see how often the word 'I' appears in Geldof's statement:

    "I do not wish to be associated in any way...I am a founding patron of The Aegis Trust...I spoke at the inaugural National Holocaust Memorial Day...I have walked amongst peoples who were sectionally targeted with ethnic cleansing...I would be a hypocrite now were I to share honours..."

    Some boy, our Bob.

    Sinn Fein nonsense - these are the people who claim expenses and salaries from Westminster.

    They don't seem to have a problem with that.

    Following your logic, Geldof should now hand back any money earned from royalties on sales of his records to customers in Dublin.
