NS&I: give them your fucking money

Bob Geldof is striding towards you with such steely purpose that his thunderous footsteps are echoing around the room. I mean, Jesus Christ, this is the man behind Live Aid; he didn't make this much drama when he was saving Africa. What the hell is he going to say?



What?

Greer? What?

Hawking? What?

So you sit there, a little transfixed, because no, you don't really expect an activist, a feminist and a theoretical cosmologist to flog you a savings account (Alan Sugar, on the other hand, has probably been whoring himself out for years). So well done, guys. Credibility is cashed in. Balance now zero.

  2. Eek. I can't look at Bob Geldof without picturing him shaving his nipples off.

  3. He shaves his chest in "The Wall" and slices his nipple pretty good.

    I was thinking maybe this would be a F4J thing, since he's been pretty active in that, and at least it warrants the drama. But no, a savings account. Greer, Hawking and Geldoff.

    As he said before that huge charity concert back in the 80s, check your ego at the door? I think check your credibility at the door works this time ;)
