Rocker Bono has slammed claims that his friendship with US President George W. Bush, damages his work as a charity campaigner.
According to Contactmusic.com, critics claim that Bono would achieve more by attacking Bush. But he says his achievements prove that his strategy works, and insists he was never easy on Bush.
He says: "We have had lots of rows and we have denounced the Bush administration when they have made mistakes, but we are not placarding and throwing rotten tomatoes at people who are trebling our aid to Africa."
