Dizzee raps Olympics site as a giant hole As An East End boy born and bred, Dizzee Rascal could be expected to welcome the 2012 Olympics. But instead the rapper has attacked the Games for turning his childhood home into a big building hole. The Games are set to generate mil- lions of pounds for east London and will provide hun- dreds of job for local people. But the 24-year- old, whose hits include Bonkers and Dance Wiv Me and who was born in Bow, near the site of the Olympic stadium but now lives in a multi- million-pound mansion in Kent, claimed that the event was nothing for the locals to get excited about. He said: All that 2012 stuff does my head in. Im not even a little bit excited. I dont live in Bow, but I go back all the time and it is s**t. The whole area is just a b i g b u i ld i n g hole. But despite his outburst, Rascal, whose real name is Dylan Mills, said he still thought he should be chosen to perform at the opening ceremony for the Games. T h e M e r c u r y P r i z e - w i n n i n g rapper, whose lat- est hit Holiday is topping charts, added: Maybe I should be involved because Im from the area. I would do the ceremony but they need to be talking about the right situation. 14 Friday, 4 September 2009 London Lite TranssexualkillerwinsHighCourtbidtomovetofemalejail by georgina littlejohn Not a pretty site: 2012 construction in East End Bow-bornstarsaysbuildingfor 2012isruiningchildhoodhome A TRANSSEXUAL killer trapped in a mans body has won a fight to be transferred to a female prison so she can achieve her dream of having full gender-reassignment surgery.

Although apparently born male, the prisoner, in her twenties and serving a life sentence for manslaughter and attempted rape, has her womanhood recognised by law and her birth certificate has been amended to show her female sex, Londons High Court heard.

Why pretty girls turn men stupid PSYCHOLOGISTS claim to have discovered why men get tongue- tied and go weak at the knees in the presence of a pretty woman. The study by Raboud University in The Netherlands found 40 men performed tests less well after a few minutes in the company of an attractive female. Researchers suggested this was because men were using up lots of brain power trying to impress the woman.
