Nelson Mandela has for many years been lauded as a great anti-apartheid fighter and has had a statue erected to his memory in Parliament Square, London.
However, in the wake of the violent 'Black Lives Matter' (BLM) demonstrations worldwide, the time has come to re-evaluate the appropriateness or otherwise of maintaining a statue to someone who was unquestionably a man of violence - a communist and a terrorist responsible for the deaths of hundreds of people in pursuit of his political ideals.
In 1961, he broke with African National Congress (ANC) colleagues who preached non-violence, creating a terrorist wing. He later pleaded guilty in court to acts of public violence and served twenty-seven years behind bars.
Even when he was locked up, he was still able to exert his baleful influence to sanction more terrorist attacks, including the 1983 Church Street car bomb that killed 19 people.
Mandela even suggested cutting off the noses of blacks deemed to be collaborators. His then wife Winnie advocated "necklacing" instead - a burning tyre around the neck.
According to Mandela, the apartheid regime left him no option but to fight violence with violence, but as the great Mahatma Gandhi once said - 'an eye for an eye makes the whole world go blind'.
His legacy is the anti-apartheid song, Shoot the Boer, which even now is sung in public by leaders who should know better in a still-divided country where many white farmers have been shot.
Mandela's support for other leaders of violence is even less forgivable.
He maintained close ties to the tyrannical Cuban dictator Fidel Castro and backed Palestinian terrorist leader Yasser Arafat.
As president in 1997, he gave his country's highest award for a foreigner to Libya's dictator, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, who'd donated $10 million to the ANC - and gave the same award to the corrupt Indonesian president Suharto, who he said had donated $60 million to the ANC.
'Black Lives Matter' (BLM) activists argue that statues that represent great wrongs that have been done in the past should be torn down - and on that basis, Nelson Mandela's statue in Parliament Square should be top of the list for demolition.
Britain First demands that the statue of Nelson Mandela must be torn down forthwith in order that any memory of this violent communist and terrorist be consigned to the dustbin of history.
