Who would you throw out?

8 December 2005

Perhaps the wrong question... "So who do you think is the greatest human rights personality of modern times? Martin Luther King; Nelson Mandela; Eleanor Roosevelt; Mahatma Gandhi; or someone else altogether?"

LSE are hosting an event in London tonight entitled:

Human Rights Day Balloon Debate: who is the greatest of the 20th century?

If you can't attend, perhaps you can decide who should go, and who should stay (in the balloon that is). I've always been partial to Gandhi, and his 'talisman' myself.
