Nelson Mandela

6th December 2013

Copeland MP and Shadow Health Minister Jamie Reed has responded to the death of Nelson Mandela. He said:

“Nelson Mandela was one of the greatest political leaders of all time. He was a unique global figure, unparalleled as an icon to rank alongside Lincoln, Roosevelt or Kennedy. No such political figure exists in the world today. In an age of scorn and cynicism with regard to politics, politicians and the political process, Mandela’s life was an illustration of what politics can achieve. We all live in hope that today’s politicians might one day achieve a fraction of what Nelson Mandela did. We will never see his like again.”
