Britain's Africa Street Kids - A Growing Cause For Concern.

There is an alarming increase in street kids of African descent loitering the streets of Britain, with no jobs, qualifications or immigration papers and have become a cause for concern because they can be radicalised by terror groups unless Government take action.

Immigration, Human Rights and the Tax Payer

Thousands of Asylum seekers spend years in Limbo, while the Home Office refuse these applications, yet spend thousands of tax payers money to protect such applicant's human rights only to eventually succumb to the initial request. Should the Home Office revisit their policies.

Are they British or African?

The recent unfortunate incident that claimed the life of Lee Rigby (RIP) sparked a row amongst the African communities, due to the media's incessant labelling of the criminals as being of Nigerian descent, despite their British accent, but same media describe Gold medallist Christine Ohuorughu as British without a single mention of her Nigerian heritage. Should this double standard continue?

The Diaspora Athlete: Africa's key to International Conquest

Many young American, European and British Athletes of African descent or of mixed race identity, partly African and partly European often compete for their European or American countries, in preference to their African roots. How does Africa win back the likes of Mo Farah, Idowu Philips, Christine Ohurougu and many more.

Black and Gay - "Not in our culture"

Recently, the Nigerian Government passed a 14year jail term against gay people into law. Many Africans describe homosexuality as against the African Culture and accuse the West of encroaching on African values while thousands of gay people in Africa live in secret, afraid of imprisonment and discrimination. Its time to talk about it.
