To MBE or not MBE.
This Wednesday night I’ll be on stage at Sadller's Wells to talk on why I accepted my OBE as pictured below. The discussion is held after a show called The Letter by Jonzi D about how he declined his. I’ll be sat alongside Omar Lye-Fook. He'll also discuss why he accepted. The alternate view will be represented by Benjamin Zephaniah who like Jonzi declined his award. The mediator is broadcaster and journalist Brenda Emmanus.I drove through the iconic gates at Buckingham Palace to receive my medal from the queen of England. What do you think? Should I have accepted? I'll read out the most insightful comment on stage. At 4pm Monday 14th Oct you and I are informed this event is CANCELLED due to injury. The questions remain.
