U2 distance themselves from Blair

Posted on Sunday, February 13 @ 20:54:44 CET by Macphisto

(ITV.com) -- U2 have distanced themselves from Tony Blair after he came on stage to one of their hits at Labour's spring conference.

The Prime Minister entered to the strains of Beautiful Day at the gathering in Gateshead. But the band were at pains to stress it was no indication of their own political leanings.

Lead singer Bono has appeared alongside Mr Blair and chancellor Gordon Brown to help their push for greater help to developing countries.

And in a speech to Labour's annual conference in September he hailed them as the "Lennon and McCartney" of the developmental campaign.

However, a spokeswoman for the band said: "We are flattered they like our tune but this is not an official endorsement of the Labour Party.

"We reserve the right to fall in and out with any political party and their policies. Mind you, every piece of airplay helps."
