So Its official I am getting serious peeved with all the negativity surrounding the Band Aid 30 single.
It’s as if whatever people try to do someone will have a moan.
From comments regarding the tax status of the singers to the rampant disregard for the devastation Ebola is causing.
Let me state a few things here.
The tax status of the singers involved has no place being discussed alongside the single.
If Sir Bob or Bono are evading taxes then that’s a issue for the government to deal with.
They will be tax evaders regardless of our spending of 99p to buy the single,
If we don’t buy the single in protest the only people that will lose are those dying from Ebola.
If you have an issue with the wealthy receiving tax breaks well then us your vote wisely at the next election.
Those dying from this disease in Africa right now well they don’t make government policy.
Secondly I don’t give a damn if One direction are flying about in separate planes because they don’t get on.
Does this effect the support we can provide to fight this disease “No.”
Should the singers involved in the single be donating their money not their time?
Maybe they have !
Who knows why are we jumping to the conclusion that it’s one or the other.
Let’s be honest if they were out in the media shouting about their donation we would be ripping them apart for this too.
Damned if you do damned if you don’t.
There are also many other entertainers out there who have done jack shit let’s not beat up on the ones that have.
So what if Sir Bob swore on television maybe he was annoyed that a reporter decided to take the subject matter away from the real issue “the people dying”.
We can all take cheap shots over tax breaks another time maybe when this devastating disease has been beaten.
It’s crazy it’s a 99p single.
It’s not about the singers.
It’s not about the lyrics.
It’s certainly not about the tax returns of the performers
It’s about a devastating virus which has so far infected over 13,000 people and claimed the lives of over 5000.
I’m tired of excuses.
Like the single or don’t that your choice.
But stop telling others how they should help and do something yourself.
Imagine if we all waited for others to act.
How many lives will be lost due to our inaction.
Donate today and let’s stop the outbreak in its tracks.
Let’s not lose anymore lives to Ebola.
