John Key is a Tosser re: Nelson Mandela

I like this article by the Dom Post: http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/9493269/Kiwi-Mandela-delegation-without-tour-protesters

"Right-wing politicians know that they have to be nice about Mandela and praise him as a hero. But it’s awkward to be reminded that Minto was actually getting beaten up because he was protesting to try and get Mandela released and to get our country to break ties with apartheid South Africa, a regime that right-wing governments here and around the world enthusiastically supported. If Key takes John Minto to Mandela’s funeral it means swallowing the gigantic rat that Minto – who they regard as the epitome of left-wing idiocy – was completely right, and the National Party was completely wrong. So no trip for Minto." - Dominion Post

"It is deeply regrettable that the Government has not been able to grasp the opportunity and send a delegation to South Africa in which all New Zealanders could feel represented." - Dominion Post
