Bono: I have role to play in romancing idea of Europe

U2 frontman Bono has been busy seeking to promote the European Union, claiming that “Europe is a thought that needs to become a feeling”.

Meeting with EU Parliament President Antonio Tajani in Brussels, Bono said: “As an artist, I think I probably have a role to play in romancing the idea of Europe and seeing it as something warm-blooded.”

He also claimed that: “Europe is a thought that needs to become a feeling and I am, as an artist, in service of that.”

Journalist Nick Gutteridge tweeted that security wouldn’t let anyone in during the visit. Man of the people indeed!

There is a track record here, with Bono having previously pushed the metro elite virtue-signalling favourite of waving the EU flag as somehow being a ‘radical act’.

The level of delusion is mildly amusing – but outside of the bubble 70% of Brits don’t give a crap about what such celebs have to say about politics anyway.

Rock and roll ain’t what it used to be, that’s for sure!
