And so it starts....

Following on from my previous blog post, I saw this today:

South Africa expropriates a white farmer amid calls to speed up land reforms.

Quoting the last bit:
'But Deputy President Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka says the pace of reform should be speeded up - as in neighbouring Zimbabwe, where most white-owned land has been seized by the state. "There needs to be a bit of oomph. That's why we may need the skills of Zimbabwe to help us," she said.'

SKILLS OF ZIMBABWE TO HELP US !?!?! Skills!?! Like thousands of percent inflation. Like DOUBLING petrol prices every few months. Like a valueless currency and a dead economy. Widespread hunger. Political unrest. Removal of free press.

Yes, I can definitely see any forward-thinking government wanting to learn from Zimbabwe!
