No matter what you think of Geldof his actions and subsequent publicity have brought the issue of ethnic cleansing in Myanmar to the Board.  Just imagine we might even get around the considering the plight of the people in Yemen

No they haven't. Bob has brought Bob to the fore. No one of note will consider the plight of anyone in these counties sadly.

Fair play to the Dublin City Council. Geldof's grandstanding had to have consequences. It was needless embarrassment for the City Council. He could have acted like a normal adult and did what U2 did - wrote to the council asking for Suu Kyi's award to be removed and explaining why.

Geldof became his father, the orsehole he couldn't tolerate as a teenager.  Jaysus.

How dare D.C
C. treat a knight of the realm like that?
Of course the Shinner seems to like the old ceremonial shite of having the British title of Ltd Mayor.

Geldof is an insufferable pompous dose but I am sure DCC have other more pressing issues that require their attention .

if Geldof wanted to hand back his award he should have done so in the Shame  in that the woman he now call a murder had Geldolf as her champion.
this all smell very much like a smokescreen (if a smokescreen smells) to cover up his own poor judgement and the misery and deaths he has indirectly caused

You've lost me on the 'misery and deaths he has indirectly caused'.   I'm not a fan of Geldof by any stretch but not sure what you mean.

quiet simple he was promoting Suu Kyi around the world ytelling every one what a wonderful woman and humanitarian she was .
now he has changed his mind  but has  to accept some of the back wash of her actions

Does Belgium not have a bigger claim on /responsibility for Geldoff than Ireland?

He did at least do a decent job at the Self Aid Concert in 1986 deputising for the then recently deceased Phil Lynott,as lead singer of Thin Lizzy during their set.
