True leadership

• Jose Mujica the president of Uruguay, earns $12,500 (€9,645) per month.

He gives away 90pc of it to the poor of that nation, living on the remaining $1,250. He believes in solidarity with his people during these hard times.

Recently I visited Iceland. I also visited the president's house. No security, no soldiers, walls, police or gate surround it. You can look in the front window whilst the great man wanders around.
