the poverty in scotland is not being looked at to the same extent but then again 30 000 poeople in scotland aren't dying everyday!because if they were something would be done as soon as possible thats part of the hypocrisy!

QUOTE(Kevin_Kilbane @ Jul 3 2005, 10:00 PM)
While everyone speaks about Africa, is the dire poverty throughout parts of Europe and in Scotland beeing looked at?

No.

View Post



The state of Africa is about a hundred times worse than that of here. At least here the homeless can get some support, but in Africa people are just dying away with no hope. Of course poverty can be bad in parts of europe but I think one of the main isssues is AIDS which is extremely common in Africa and barely seen in Europe. It is also a major killer in Africa as well. Perhaps South America and Asia should have been looked at also, but Africa is generally at a worse state in termss of development

er...I am not sure. He is doing a good thing I am sure by trying to highlight the problems. I know that people are cynical but I am not 100% sure about Bob Geldof, but the live 8 stuff was good in my opinion

I really coudn't say what his intentions are. He could just be doing this for a good cause but also knowing that it is helping his reputation at the same time.

Geldof's a rat.

"Oh I want all of Scotland to donate money to MPH".

Is he forgetting Scottish people give more money to charity than any other country in Europe?

If he was to dig deep into his pocket, he'd find a few million lying about which he could donate. Same with most of the Live 8 artists - Madonna, Coldplay, Paul Macca - stop all your pleading crap and donate some of the spare millions you have.

Everyone makes out Africa to be poverty strucken - its not. Yes there is wide spread poverty but there are a lot of rich people there. Geldof should be encouraging self help schemes which with local involvement will work than trying to get as much money as possible to donate to some corrupt Leader.

As for the cause of Aids, perhaps the Catholic church should be encouraging rather than discouraging the use of contraception.

Controversial he may be, but he has done wonderful things with Libya. It excels any other nation that started out from a similar point.

And he is right, begging will get nothing done. Positive action will. But Gaddafi would not see economic liberalisation as "positive" at all.

I think that the performers at live 8 should have had to contribute to appear, what with all the free publicity they are getting.
Half ideas,half quality, half a million pound law suit!

It's amazing enough they have appeared for free without their record companies demanding payments, don't get too ahead of yourself tongue.gif.
