What nobody is talking about in terms of the impact of Nelson Mandela’s timely passing is something that strikes at the very core of culture in Great Britain and across the world. Namely, with Nelson Mandela gone, in whose presence will those huge, globally broadcast rock concerts be performed now? Without him, will Peter Gabriel, Paul Simon and Annie Lennox ever be employed again? These are the serious questions we should be asking ourselves as we reflect on the loss of one of the great figures of twentieth century politics and equality.
