Patti LaBelle

George Clinton in Birmingham, UK
George Clinton was back to Birmingham this April at the O2 Arena, Bristol Street, with a complete show that included members of his groups; Parliament and Funkadelic, plus some new vocalists and family members. George has now shaved off his colourful dreads removed his nappies and long beard in favor of the suit & tie look. I must say the band sounded fabulous and the two lead guitarists were very rock-ified as you would expect. More at Mickey's Blog 2-Soulution
Cllr. Yvonne Mosquito
Staggering new figures have revealed that the West Midlands Police accepted just one black person among 162 new recruits in its latest recruitment exercise. The shocking figures have prompted West Midlands Police & Crime Commissioner David Jamieson to ask questions of his own force in his quest to ensure that the police service reflects the public it serves. Both Jamieson and his deputy, Councilor Yvonne Mosquito, herself Britain’s only black female in a leading Police & Crime Commissioner role, are now calling on the force to up its game in its latest wave of recruitment.
