Dizzee Rascal for Prime Minister

Link to a video clip of Dizzee Rascal, the UK rap artist, on BBC Newsnight.

The bit that made me laugh was Paxman putting a question to him: "Mr. Rascal, ..". Reminds me of Meat Loaf appearing in South Park (214), and Cartman asking him a question: "Mr. Loaf .."!

I liked Dizzee's positive view of the UK and racial integration, something that I share. The Americans may have beaten us to have a black leader first, but I don't believe there are any barriers to anyone reaching the top office in the UK, and as Mr. Rascal says, it's only a matter of time...

You have a very interesting blog. I especially enjoyed reading about your time in Botswana.
