A Tale of Two Countries: Baffour's Beefs (New African, June 2007)
I Like to think of The Guardian as New African’s big neighbour. Big in terms of reach, and you may add global influence. Their big, brown building at 119 Farringdon Road in EC1 is just two minutes walk from New African’s much smaller block of offices at 7 Coldbath Square (also brown in colour; London likes brown, no wonder Gordon Brown is going to be the next prime minister). In the days when Africa was Africa, when we were not adulterated by so-called “globalisation of culture” (which essentially means Western culture taking over the world), we would have shouted from Coldbath Square across the two-minute divide to our neighbours at 119 Farringdon Road to come over because the evening meal was ready, and they would have heard us.
