Similar article being discussed here:

any of you "ONE" peeps able to explain this?

Key quote is this:

He said: 'We don't provide programmes on the ground. We're an advocacy and campaigning organisation.'

It's a shame most people probably won't see past the inflammatory headline and take it as another reason to bash Bono and not come to the understanding of what the One campaign actually is.

Well, it's also one of those topics that could go in a variety of places, so it's hard to decide where to post it!
