Mandela and Madonna
“In both of them, I admire their courage. I admire their zest for life, that extraordinary determination.”
This is what new UK Local Government Association chairman Sir Sandy Bruce-Lockhart has told BBC News Online in a recent interview.
The son of a Foreign Office official, he travelled much as a child, farmed for a time in Zimbabwe and contemplated settling in Australia.
Aside from the Duke of Wellington, he admires the unlikely pairing of Nelson Mandela and Madonna.
