Story here. He won’t be able to use the honorary title of Sir since he’s from Ireland, not England. He says that a knighthood would help in getting aid for Africa.
Well good for Bono. He’s an advocate for the forgotten and I can’t think of a more worthy recipient.

People can call him obnoxious and arrogant if they want (and they do), but I’m with PunditLisa. At least he gets things done for a lot of people in need.
