It is without question that Lewis Hamilton, the 22-year old formula one car driver is the toast of Formula 1 sport today. Lewis, who won his first title, in 1995, at the age of 11, becoming the youngest British champion has been hailed as the "messiah" and the "billion dollar man". He was crowned GQ's Man of the Year 2007 and has become a tabloid favourite posing next to music stars and models.

However, on the track, his performance continues to be ridden with controversy courtesy of his team and advisors. First, was the gastronomical McLaren $100m fine and to more recently his 'skid off' weekend performance at the Chinese Grand Prix. It makes us wonder if this is another case of England blowing up its talents way too early, pushing these talents that ought to be nurture away from the limelight in hope that they become ' the next great sporting hope'. We have no doubt that Hamilton will become the new drivers' world champion however the British press in particular need to step back and watch from a distance and perhaps and I mean perhaps this great english hope can truly dazzle the world at large.


The man that has brought joy to many eardrums across Africa with his infectious cross-over hit 'African Queen' has been a victim of armed robeery shooting - his second incident in two years. Twenty-two pellets were said to have been removed from the thigh of the famous singer, whose real name is Tu-Face Idibia. The unfortunate incident took place in the early hours of Friday, 5th of October, 2007.

At this time, it is reported that this act was carried out by suspected armed robbers. We have no reason to believe at this point that this was an organised operation. We shall keep you updated in the singer's recovery process.

We pray for his family and friends at this difficult time.


It was revealed yesterday that after an exciting few weeks of party conferences making headlines, the Prime Minister will not be calling an early general elections after all. So after many electoral officers, labour's activists made preparations towards the "proposed" elections, it isn't to be. The Prime Minister has been "getting on with running the country" and is in no hurry to hold elections. Top points to his team of strategists.
