    A racist floppy speaks says:

    President Robert Mugabe has declared that no white person will be allowed to own land except for companies as stipulated in the laws of the country.

    Mugabe said Wednesday while launching the Model A1 Settlement Permit at Chipfundi Farm Lions’ Den in Mashonaland West.

    “They can own industries and companies or stay in apartments in our towns but cannot own land. We hear in some cases they are being protected by cabinet ministers and politicians within their constituencies. We will deal with that,” said Mugabe.

    “One of the major objectives of the liberation struggle was to evict the white settlers from the land since they had the option of going back to their countries of origin,” he said. – See more at: http://bulawayo24.com/index-id-news-sc-national-byo-49953.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=Feed: Bulawayo24News (Bulawayo24 News)#sthash.mrRtJZyR.dpuf

    I met FW de Klerk after his retirement. He was quite open about the fact that politicians in general know fuck-all about anything and “technocrats”, like a doctor as minister of health or an ex-general as minister of defence are positively dangerous as a politician’s job is all about brokering dodgy deals and an expert is far less likely to allow w@ankers their say or participation, however unwanted, which just creates divisiveness. He did point out that Lawyers excel at politics as that is the key profession used to accepting that the truth is highly flexible and facts are whatever you want them to be.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
