Was Geldof told to shut up?
Madam -- I find it strange how the media can continue to print Bob Geldof''s ongoing criticism of the Republic of Ireland, (Sunday Independent, May 13, 2012), stretching back almost 30 years. We have problems financially and professionally, and I sincerely hope they will be rectified and all the perpetrators either jailed or sacked. What puzzles me is Geldof's complete lack of any criticism of the UK.
Maybe he was warned by the British establishment to direct his criticism elsewhere?
