This is the statue of Nelson Mandela unveiled in London’s Parliament Square yesterday, on its first morning in the capital. Behind him is Sir Robert Peel, the father of policing. The great man himself was present yesterday, flanked by Prime Minister Gordon Brown and the London mayor Ken Livingstone. Also on the square are Winston Churchill and Abraham Lincoln. They, as a reporter in The Times pointed out today, stand on bigger plinths.

    Maybe his plinth is smaller so he’s closer to the people.
