. Is it heretical to view Nelson Mandela as anything other than a latter day saint? I think the BBC believes this to be the case based on this unctuous piece entitled “Why everyone wants a piece of Mandela” by Peter Biles. This article really takes the biscuit in sanitising Mandelas’ past, carefully paving over any valid criticisms of the former ANC leader. You see it’s not that I don’t accept that Mandela has done some good things, but he has also failed in many other areas and what I expect from the State Broadcaster is more balance. Stop patronising everyone who demurs from the Saint Nelson line.
