No. A good example of traditional Irish begrudgery is when Irish people like to crow about how much they hate Bono for no reason other than he's a successful Irishman.

Saw this quote somewhere, thought it was applicable here.

"Bono might come across as a gobshite but then nobody's forcing you to listen to him. My only problem with Bono is that when he strays out of his lane he comes across as an opinionated London taxi driver who thinks he has to have an opinion on everything whether he understands it or not. If he sticks to singing, I'm all right with that."

The lack of self awareness on this board sometimes is incredible.   ::)

It's a clever argument, but Bono actually has done a bit of homework on the global issues that he works on. He's not an "opinionated London taxi driver" at all when it comes to these topics, he's actually quite well informed. Which is more than I can say for O'Leary.

 ;D  the bit in bold is your opinion only.  If you want to pass it off as fact, we're gonna need some evidence of this.  As a couple of counter points, I'll give you Bono's friendship with Evangelical Christians Billy & Franklin Graham.  Check out their views on Muslims and gays if you get five minutes.  There wasn't much homework done there.  Or the time he dedicated 'Sunday Bloody Sunday' to the military at a concert in Trafalgar Square because 'no one loves peace more than those who fought for it'.  Seriously, the British Army fought for peace?  Does that sound like somebody who's done his homework?

Why don't you admit it.  You just don't like O'Leary because of typical old Irish begrudgery.

So you also hate Bill Gates, a man who has donated his $65bn fortune to good causes.

Bill Gates is the largest shareholder of Monsanto stock.

Would have thought you'd have no problem at all with Gates investing in Monsanto, given that you're already a pathetic cheerleader for a bunch of corrupt crony capitalists.

I'm fully aware that Bayer acquired Monsanto, Gates purchased the shares before the acquisition. Monsanto sold out to Bayer because of the bad reputation the name was receiving. A change of name so GMOs can continue with it's depopulation agenda under the disguise of Big Pharma.

Thanks for the laughs over the last few days on the US Political Thread with your crazy comments. You got your ass whipped on numerous occasions and still came back for more. Outside of the laughs I'm genuinely concerned about your mental well-being.

Lolz - you quite obviously weren't aware of anything, and a psychiatrist would have a field day with the amount of projection there.  ;D
