A former work colleague – who was at that point already past retirement age – told Dish Detective about the parties that used to take place at The Hunters Inn. Apparently, this village pub, on the edge of Swanmore and abutting the South Downs National Park, was a hotbed of activity in the ‘60s and ‘70s.I’m told that coachloads of people would be bussed out to the countryside from Portsmouth. And that the pub was well-known among the navy.Looking at the place in 2018, it seems almost impossible.A couple of years ago, Dish Detective was out exploring the Meon Valley and called in at the Hunters. Its large car park was packed – usually a good sign – however on entering the pub, the smell of cabbage and sea of white hair put us off and we shipped out to our old favourite and trusted Shoe at Exton instead.New owners Conrad and Lorna proudly posted on Facebook about their arrival and Dish Detective’s curiosity was … [Read more...] about FOOD REVIEW: Is this a new dawn for the Hunters?

In this piece, Prince Diran Aladesanmi examines the issues that will shape next Saturday’s governorship election in Ekiti State. When the going gets tough, the tough gets going. You cannot have your cake and eat it and it is only possible to give what you have. A common slogan says that the journey of a thousand kilometers starts with a step and that exceptionally important step was displayed at the recently concluded APC party primary in Ekiti, which led to the emergence of Dr Kayode Fayemi as the flag bearer for the 2018 Ekiti gubernatorial election slated for July 14. Ekiti people as a matter of urgency and conviction must cultivate the mindset that greatness is not given but earned and earning this all important virtue requires commitment and doggedness.

Jacob Zuma South Africa’s former leader Jacob Zuma is among those said to be impeding efforts by his successor, President Cyril Ramaphosa, to create a “new dawn” for citizens and foreign investors – free of corruption and cronyism which became associated with the Zuma regime. Zuma was ousted as president of South Africa three months ago. It was a humiliating end to his nine year rule. Now Zuma’s shadow is looming large over the Ramaphosa era as his allies launch a fightback within the ANC. “There is bad blood there, and Zuma is feeling betrayed — it is an open secret,” political analyst Somadoda Fikeni from the UNISA university in Pretoria told the French news service AFP.

Even if that were true, Ramaphosa’s popularity, both inside and outside the ANC, is … [Read more...] about South African Promise of a ‘New Dawn’ Slowed by Infighting
