Paris and Bono....... Celebrity Whiners!

This week saw Paris Hilton revert back to infancy and cry for her Mommy when sent back to jail and witnessed Bono have a hissy-fit when he couldn't hijack Prime Minister Steven Harper of Canada.

One of the world's biggest rock stars tore a strip off on Friday and accused him of blocking a meaningful deal on African aid at the G8 summit.

(The leaders of the world's eight wealthiest democracies have pledged US$60 billion in aid to the world's poorest continent!)

"It's completely false and the people saying this have no proof to their allegations," Harper said at a news conference as the summit ended in Germany.

But Bono said he had numerous sources at the negotiating table. "It's as if we have the place bugged, because everybody tells us," he said.

"We know who's causing the trouble and who isn't. We know that Canada blocked progress. We know that Harper blocked it."

Bono said he doesn't believe the prime minister was too busy to meet with him at the summit - the leaders of the United States, Germany, France and Britain managed to do so.

"It's not the pop stars he doesn't want to meet. It's the movement that we represent," Bono said.

The prime minister fired back. "We did not block any agreement. There's no reason we would block an agreement," Harper said.

"We happen to believe that when it comes to aid money that the full framework of accountability is very important." "Canada favours transparency."

Privately, sources were quoted as saying that Bono threw a childish fit and displayed sour grapes because because Harper would not meet with him when he "demanded" a meeting. Harper said Thursday
that Africa is not Canada's "sole focus," because there are also development challenges in the Americas. It was also suggested by some that the Prime Minister didn't want Bono to hijack the meeting so that he could push his own agenda instead of the general business of the G8 Summit.

This didn't sit too well with Mr. Bono!

And while we are on the subject of Bono, why in the hell would he name himself after Sonny in the first place???

Allan, thanks for the kind words, we will return the favor (under News of the Day). Best of luck with the God-101 thing!
