Although this blog's name is inspired by Sauti Kubwa ("Big Voice"), the late lead singer of Rumba Japan, a band that played in Nairobi in the early years of this century, it won't focus unduly on Swahili nicknames, rumba music or indeed any other African issues.

Today, Radio 4 aired a 50-minute discussion between five BBC correspondents on their predictions for the world in 2011.

This was followed by a 30-minute phone-in, for listeners to continue the discussion. This was very disappointing, focusing almost entirely on domestic British affairs.

We (or Radio 4 listeners at least) have become a nation of boring introverts.
