So, Nelson Mandela. Now dead and buried. Literally. Personally I think it would have been more fitting for him to have been cremated – ANC-style, with a burning car tyre rammed around his shoulders and paraffin poured all over it, then set alight.
Egal. Now that he’d gone, will everybody please put an end to all the sycophancy? How long till someone starts telling the world he turned water into wine and healed the sick. Dear me. Let’s face it, he was no Mother Theresa.
The truth is rarely pure and never simple.
