Friday, 16 October 2009 London Lite By georgina littlejohn Fast talkaninstant interviewwith... Tom Clarke THE 22-year-old is the lead singer and guitarist for Coventry indie-rockers The Enemy. North or south London? North because its closest to home. Tube or cab? Tube for novelty sometimes but cab drivers make journeys amazing. PlayStation or Xbox? PlayStation looks better and plays better but breaks a lot, so Xbox, left. Its like Alfa Romeo or Volvo -- Id like an Alfa Romeo but Id go for a Volvo cos it wont break. Lager or vodka? Lager, all day long. I drink Becks. Stadium concerts or intimate gigs? Intimate gigs. Theres nothing better than going for it and sweat dripping off the ceiling. Q or NME? Q, because NME once printed Tom Clarke has a tiny penis, which is not only offensive, but inaccurate. Guitar Hero or FIFA? FIFA. Im actually really s**t at Guitar Hero. Oasis or Arctic Monkeys? Oasis. They provided the soundtrack to my life and took us on tour. Im sad theyre over. Xfm or Radio 1? Xfm because Radio 1 seems to have stopped playing guitars. We had an argument once with (former Xfm DJ) Alex Zane (right) but we had a snog in Manchester and made up. MARTHA DE LACEY The Enemys single Be Somebody is the title track of FIFA 10, out now. Alesha:Arleneaxewasashock Payout: Ken Hinds ALESHA DIXON has claimed she had no idea she was replacing Strictly Come Dancing judge Arlene Phillips. Recording tonights Friday Night With Jonathan Ross show, she said she had thought both she and Phillips would be judging the celebrity dance contest. She told Ross: I knew nothing. I found out when everyone else did. I was just as surprised as everyone else but I took the flak for it. The singer, 30, also admitted that she had been worried the other judges wouldnt warm towards me but added that the criticism she has received has only made her stronger. She said: My life has never been smooth -- its made me more determined, focused. Im a fighter, I believe you have to rise above negativity. Dixon, who won Strictly Come Dancing in 2007, also told Ross that she wouldnt be surprised if contestants and dancers were to have affairs, as it gets flirtatious. Dancing queen: Alesha Dixon speaks out on Jonathan Ross show A MAN today told how he has been stopped and searched 100 times by police -- and he works for them as an adviser on black issues. The searches go back 20 years for Ken Hinds, 50, who this week was given a 22,000 payout from the British Transport Police after being handcuffed as he watched a black youth being arrested. Mr Hinds, from Edmonton, said: Theres only one explanation for this enduring and horrendous harassment: I am a black man. If I was white, there is no way I would have been stopped and searched so many times. He sits on the Mets Black Independent Advisory Committee for Haringey, and last year received a police commen- dation for his courage, tenacity and dedication in tackling knife crime. But he told how he was repeatedly stopped at Tube and train stations, on the street and while driving. In the last 20 years, I have been stopped and searched more than 100 times, he said. Once I was arrested and held in a police station for four hours on suspicion that the car I was driv- ing, an old Audi, was stolen. It was his car. The transport police admitted false imprison- ment and malicious prose- cution in a 2004 incident at Seven Sisters station. Mr Hinds had attempted to witness an arrest of a black youth but found himself put on trial. The case collapsed after officers were found to have fabricated evidence. British Transport Police said today: We will certainly look into any renewed complaints he has made.
