Outspoken rocker Bono has hit out at Canadian Prime Minister PAUL MARTIN for breaking his promise to increase foreign aid.

The U2 frontman, famed for his campaign against world poverty, slammed the politician during a radio interview, saying he was "bewildered and disappointed".

In a final jibe at Martin, Bono read out the Prime Minister's office telephone number over the air and urged listeners to pester him with angry calls.

The Canadian leader is becoming increasingly unpopular with campaigners protesting on behalf of a variety of causes - he has already been bombarded with hate mail from PEOPLE FOR THE ETHICAL TREATMENT OF ANIMALS (PETA) members, led by busty model Anna Nicole Smith, regarding the country's barbaric seal clubbing trend.
