Oxfam has last laugh


Remember all the criticism thrown at Bono and Oxfam with their attempts to end poverty? Looks like New Zealanders do care and don’t listen to the nay-sayers…

Kiwis back Bono
The Make Poverty History campaign has experienced a huge surge in NZ membership since its endorsement by the Sunday Star-Times two weeks ago. A spokesperson said new on-line sign-ups had leapt by 3000%. Around 4000 people are now members.

You mean poverty has ended?
Thats really great, perhaps now Mr Bono can rid the world of cancer.

Wow - it's almost like you were all wishing for bono to fail just to feel better about not getting involved, how very ugly.

Has someone overdosed on their Paxil? Will someone please lend cynic a feeling?

I think cynic has feelings, I don't think he wants or needs bono to tell him how or what to feel.

Fuck Bono. If I didn't have to work 65 hours a week just to survive, I would care a lot more about other peoples' poverty too...
