Bob Geldof has said he and his partner Jeanne would personally be prepared to take four refugee families across his two homes, and called the current crisis "an absolutely sickening disgrace." Speaking with RTÉ radio, the Irish state broadcaster, Geldof has said that the crisis will still be a talking point in 300 years time, and called the response a betrayal of values. He's personally offered to house four families of refugees, three in his house in Kent and another in his London home. Geldof stated: "I'm prepared - I'm lucky, I've a place in Kent and a flat in London - me and Jeanne would be prepared to take three families immediately in our place in Kent and a family in our flat in London, immediately, and put them up until such time as they can get going and get a purchase on their future." Getty "If there's a new economy then there needs to be a new politics and it's a failure of that new politics that's led to this disgrace, this absolute sickening disgrace," the Boomtown Rats frontman continued. "I look at it with profound shame and as a monstrous betrayal of who we are and what we wish to be. We are in a moment currently now that will be discussed and impacted on in 300 years time. I've known, you've known, and everyone listening has known that the bollocks we talk about our values is complete nonsense." "Once it comes home to roost we deny those values, we betray ourselves, but those values are correct, and it happens time and time again. We are better than this, we genuinely are." Geldof has a substantial past when it comes to political activism, having organized Band Aid, Live Aid and Live 8, as well as being part of the Africa Progress Panel.
