Quote of the Day

The Belgravia Gallery reports:

“Having been asked by Nelson Mandela’s art publisher to represent his work,drawings mainly of Robben Island, we had the privilege of spending a morning with Mandela when he was signing the lithographs at his home in Johannesburg in December 2002. He delighted us with stories about a number of well known British personalities over the years when he was president. Perhaps the most surprising was his description of Margaret Thatcher as “Motherly” and he remembered how she had poured him tea and they had discussed various ailments and how after he returned home, she had sent him herbal remedies.”

    “Motherly” sounds about right in comparison with the later Socialist ‘nanny state’ concept.
    Difficult at times for some of the UK’s population during her time in office to distinguish the wood from the trees.
    Same thing happened with many’s perception of Diana gleaned from UK media adulation.
    And the same happening today where individual self interest suggests overriding necessary legislaton, ignoring the need for the general good.

Ralph Miliband on the English…

“The Englishman is a rabid nationalist. They are perhaps the most nationalist people in the world.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
