Rejected petition U2 not allowed to perform and/or preach about giving money to charity unless they each wear outfits of less than £30

Mr Bono, lead singer of U2 is constantly preaching about poor people and how we should give money to them. This hypocrisy should not be allowed because he is clearly and idiot. Especially given his guitarist is called The Edge. Whose first name is "The" anyway?

As of this writing they're on the BBC. I wish they'd shut up. (I think many agree.)
