Liroy politely tells Bono he's full of it

In politely phrased terms, Polish rapper Liroy has chided U2's Bono of badmouthing Poland. In a letter to Bono he wrote:
"Your knowledge on this subject must be based on a rather questionable source and is far from the truth. ...Both as a musician and a Polish MP I would like to invite you to Warsaw to discuss the subject you brought up in your speech and see for yourself the current vibe of Poland."

The letter came in response to recent remarks by Bono who in a speech in the US Congress on April 12 said that members of congress "should be very nervous" about countries such as Poland and Hungary turning towards "hyper-nationalism." Marzec is a member of the Kukiz' 15 parliamentary opposition grouping - led by veteran rock star Paweł Kukiz.

Basically their are both stage hoppers or comedians/singers. Seem that one know something about politics and the other have no clue. One is serving as congressman in Poland and the other talks about foreign countries in the American Congress out of the blue and as if had a clue.

Should have told him to mind his own business.

You mean Liroy of course. Who'd want to listen to a whiskey-soaked Mick anyway?

A bit ironic that you wrote about someone bad mouthing Poland, then you turn around and bad mouth another nation yourself

You've got a point. To the Irish here, there and everywhere: Tá brón orm!

Polly, well done on the Irish! Complete with the fadas (those are the little strokes over the vowels).

Yes but he's of the evangelical variety. I can remember Bono from the early days when he was very much 'local'. I was still at school when U2 first became known in Dublin and I lived in the same part of town and he had a reputation locally as being very strait laced and proper, very much a 'Protestant'. Most lads of his age were out on the tear at the weekends drinking like mad eejits and smoking the old dooby as David Brent would say but word on the street (or rather in leafy suburbia) was 'Bono's very religious you know, yeah he's really into all that Jesus stuff, ah yea but he's a Protestant isn't he?'

Evangelical Christian groups including the Catholic charismatic movement were very 'cool' amongst Dublin teenagers at that time. Quite a substantial number of girls I knew from my own convent school were in various slightly weird religious groups who went off on coaches at weekends rattling their rosary beads and banging their tambourines. It's that teenage thing of being part of a special gang and of course because it was religious Mammy wouldn't object to them going away for the weekend - the freedom! (Daddy's opinion wouldn't matter. In an Irish household Mammy rules the roost and Daddy basically goes along with whatever she says. 'What does your mother say? Right so, that's grand, off you go'. Any man who tries to take over that role is viewed as most unnatural and summed up as 'God he's an awful domineering so-and-so'.)

Aren't they called acute accents in Irish?

As Smurf says the term used is 'fada' (fada being an Irish word of course, pronounced more or less 'fotha'). When spelling an Irish word using the English names of letters you'd say for example that brón is spelt b-r-o fada-n.

Bono who in a speech in the US Congress

What a farce letting Bozo speak in front of Congress!

Why does "The Edge" always wear that silly wool hat? Even in the summer, on planes, beach, funerals etc.....
With all his loot and not even one guitar solo! I would think he could afford some hair plugs! lol

This is quite old topic, but as it was recently necromanted I add some of my thoughts. You should never compare popularity of English language music artists with artist of other languages. Even **** American/British artist is much more popular then good one of less popular language. Another thing is recognition of pop artist compared to less popular genres. That being said, it actually doesn't matter how good they were in doing music to be honest. Listen to the words, not to the name - that's what I always say. Liroy is a guy I never liked as an artist, actually his music was too primitive to me and I thought he's going to be the biggest joke now in parliament. And I was wrong, really wrong. As many Poles really. Liroy is the biggest (positive) surprise among the deputies now and that's an opinion of many people. You can even switch Bono (actually he also makes **** music imo ;d) into greatest artist you know, but I'd be on Liroy side here anyway. Bono went out of his competence speaking about the topic and Liroy, being competent in the field had to response.

Know of any civilised (non-Muslim) country where that is not the case?
