The Guardian coverage of the Mobos is slightly surprising, hailing a great night for the British:
Rule Britannia: Estelle leads UK stars in Mobo sweep
Breaking the tradition of British R&B stars playing second fiddle to their US counterparts, Estelle and Leona Lewis last night capped a successful year by dominating the Mobo awards.
Well... yes, although since the awards are split into UK and rest of the world categories, it does help a little, don't you think? If the British showing was that strong, why not allow our team to fight against the rest of the world?
