So I guess it's my turn to apologise - I'm sure John knows his origins better than I do. I just recall reading his column in the local paper for many years and I recall his writing about his political reasons for leaving South Africa. Even more interesting now knowing when he wasn't from there in the first place.

It made me believe he was from there. My apologies.
