    Harold MacMillan (former British PM) made the phrase famous in a speech to the then apartheid parliament in South Africa in 1960

    This bit is particularly relevant:

    The wind of change is blowing through this continent, and whether we like it or not, this growth of national consciousness is a political fact. We must all accept it as a fact, and our national policies must take account of it.
