“If you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.”

I understand the sentiment, I empathise with the desire, but the reality is when you dance with the devil…

Bob Geldof has come out in defence of his decision to join the UK’s conservative party in coming up with a policy on global poverty. And I’m sure that when he says he is in “no one’s pocket” he truly believes it. Unfortunately, he just became a pin-up boy for a group that is interested in enslaving women, imposing its own religious and political beliefs upon those who do not share them and making token moves towards relieving poverty in the interests of garnering better votes at the next election.

But I applaud the effort, even if it is bound to fail.
