Mr Howard made it clear he respected Bono’s rock star status but that respect only went so far: “I don’t accept preconditions from anybody.”
Mikhail Gorbachev didn’t object. Bill Clinton didn’t object, Even ‘Dubya’ didn’t object to meeting with Bono to discuss global poverty and the importance of developed nations honouring the already agreed 0.7% of GDP allocation to resolution of global poverty.
Little Johnny Howler does, however. The arrogance of the man knows no bounds.
