As if Jesse hasn't pimped folks enough on this side of the pond...

Jesse Jackson is going to the UK to "galvanize" the black and Asian voter base for the upcoming May 5 general election.

Reverend Jesse Jackson joins forces with Operation Black Vote (OBV) to galvanise the powerful BME electorate in the run up to the widely anticipated May 5th General Election.

Entitled, The Politics of Power, Reverend Jesse Jackson will deliver his keynote address to a thousand strong audience at 6.45pm on Wednesday 9th March at Friends Meeting House, 173 Euston Road, NW1 2BJ.

I guess since his face-time has diminished on this side of the Atlantic, he's trying the other side. And of course, since the British press will give attention to anyone who is against the current American administration, they'll be happy to oblige Jackson.

The British press has a damn sight more going for it than what passes for a free press on your side of the pond.

After they give the red carpet treatment to "The Sloganmaster" come back and elaborate on that...

Will happily get into relative merits of British press vs US press but gotta say am impressed that the link provided led me to the British Students Union website.

I try to read a bit of everything, Nick; and I certainly don't limit my sources to one side or the other. I'm not always successful, but I aim to please.
