Didn't mean to.
It was unintentional.
Apologies for any upset caused.
Have edited response. (see above)
I should point out though that I didn't bring politics into this discussion. I was simply responding to Brian of G's comments about Bono's spoken views which are, lets face it, highly political. Indeed, so are his lyrics...
'Sunday Bloody Sunday'
'Bullet The Blue Sky'
'Silver and Gold'
'Peace on Earth'
To be fair, I can't quite see how any discussion on U2's songs can avoid politics when they are such a political band and previous postings on this thread by other members have made direct reference to the political content of their music. It would be a bit like discussing the rap lyrics of Public Enemy and never mentioning their views on The Nation of Islam or Malcolm X.
