He had nevertheless – outlived our own prior Prime Minister…. Mrs Thatcher!
Whom I believe – in effect, at the very “least” actually gave ‘tacit’ support… to racism and segregation in South Africa – by continuing to do business – as usual, with this regime; when decisive action was required – not a state of at the very ‘best…’ almost – apoplectic apathy.
