For the left, Mandela was a distant conscience; for the right he was a reminder of how badly they had got things wrong
RIP. For the Brit’s especially, well worth reading.
This is good too, particularly the part that touches on the nostalgic/totemic aspects of the apartheid struggle to Labour and the British left - a moment when “we” were clearly on the “right side” (even if, as with me and most of the people I knew, the level of activity didn’t go much beyond not buying certain fruits and LPs). Better than the alternative, obviously, but if Tories should look back on their 80s stances with a great deal of shame (and they should), I think their opposition’s pride should come with a dose of reflection too: was that campaigning spirit sustained? What do they - we - support, oppose or tolerate now?
Everything runs off the same energy system. Really Powerful image set.
