On Nelson Mandela

This carefully neutral tweet comes from Prime Minister David Cameron:

My thoughts are with Nelson Mandela, who is in hospital in South Africa

And this comes from Pauline Kiernan:

Mandela will die soon. Today, tomorrow, this week, next week. It won't be long. Remember this, he out-lived Thatcher. When Cameron latches on the Mandela bandwagon this week remember that in 1985 he was a top member of the Federation of Conservative Students, who produced this poster:

In 1989 Cameron worked in the Tory Policy Unit at Central Office and went on an anti-sanctions fact finding mission to South Africa with a pro-apartheid Lobby Firm that was sponsored by Botha. Remember this when he tells the world he was "inspired by Madiba".
