Nelson Mandela

At least, when it eventually happens, his funeral won't be so full of sychophancy as a more recent ex-political leader's.

Are you sure? I'd say it'll be a sycophest.

 

Bono's getting a lackey to walk in some new shoes as we speak.

Depends on the dissent doesn't it, there would have to be a noisy level of it, a lot agreeing with each other, complaining about sycophants

It is a fantastic book. No politician is perfect, but the way the guy went about things made him a cut above the rest. He won freedom for black South Africans, he got into power, he did not go about with retribution but aimed for reconciliation and after a few years he did what most politicians do not know what to do, step down. Respect.

I'd swerve making a thread about Mandela about Thatcher.

 

Hope he's alright.

Oh, I know. Just saying, with possible comparisons of funerals of ex-political leaders this year, Hugo Chavez too.

 

It's just a waiting game now with Mandela, I think? It'll be very sad when he does go.
