Not sure if you will see this but hope you do as I was very moved by your words at the Nelson Madela birthday event.
It is a rare thing to feel a sense of optimism for the future but I genuinely feel that you provided a rare glimmer in your summation of Mr Mandelas achievements.
It was obvious that you were both very moved & have a very accurate view of the collective angst of inhabitants of Britain 2008 but you managed to speak refreshingly honestly while avoiding bruising delicate sentiments.
Your words had resonance & were genuinely uplifting & it is for that I wanted to say thank you, as insight & honesty seem to be a very rare double act. You asked people to take something away from the event & as far as I am concerned you achieved your request.
