  1. Mine, too, as it happens. Less of the…French production. And the sentiment is welcome. Mandela was one of the very few national leaders to possess real humanity. To hear all the jackals in charge praise him makes me ill.<br /><br />But they can&#39;t deface the man, however much they work against his ideals.
