Congratulations Mr Agard!
Hats off to John Agard, and also the Poet Laureate, who recommended he win, the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry 2012. Britain's highest honour for a poet (other than the laureateship) most of the greats have won it. Agard is only the second black poet to be given the award - a too-small number - so this is about-time time, but let that not be the whole story - Agard is an excellent poet for adults and children, a progressive figure, and a superb performer of his work - in short an inspiration for many.
