M218 - South Africa Motion, The Rt. Hon. Krollo MPThis House recognises the multitude of great things that Nelson Mandela has done over his exceptional life, and shares the grief of the South African nation. However, the country is still not entirely devoid of racial tension and various other significant issues of inequality, and the House is committed to help alleviate the many problems that the nation still suffers, as well as to improving relations between the United Kingdom and South Africa.

I believe the whole house will join me in commemorating the life of a great man, who served his nation proudly for the goal of equality amongst all. And I agree that we should endeavor to assist in implementing such an ethos in not just South Africa, but around the world.

Aye. If we are to be socially progressive we must continue his inspiring legacy, not just in his homeland or Africa, but the wider world in general. Hopefully this has at least reminded people of the good that foreign aid does- and how we can all be massive positive forces.

I think as we worry and complain about the little things times like these help us notice the bigger picture and make us more aware of what is going on around us. Nelson Mandela and his colleagues will always be remembered for all the work they have done to ensure equality and fairness within and outside of their society. I think this motion is important in showing this house's respect and appreciation of Nelson Mandela and how we can continue to work towards a more equal and fair world.

Nay.

We cannot make any difference, a waste of time. This is just an emotional reaction to this great mans passing. I appreciate the thought and share the sentiment however it is not our issue to deal with.

We should remember his family and all South Africans and our thoughts and prayers be for them. It is very rare for anyone to touch the hearts of so many people around the world, and to be so respected.

yes, very much an aye from me, a great man who we must help to uphold the legacy of not only in his native South Africa but also worldwide by making sure that never again is an apartheid regime supported by major powers.

RIP Mandela, gone but history will not forget your work.

Mandela's loss is very sad, but hopefully his incredible legacy will lead today's ANC away from corruption and back to its roots.

Aye, aye, as a dual South African/British citizen.

I was lucky enough to photograph the great Madiba once:

Whilst inevitably all great men perish it's a shame that his death appears to have inspired almost god-like worship for him in South Africa that could distract from the struggle still ahead.

He did lead a terrorist organisation for a good while. Don't be too quick to put him on a pedestal.
