Another Prat

Another PratIt seems that this is the week for prats revealing themselves unto the world.

Below is a verbatim extract and link from The Telegraph, a rare event indeed!

I look forward to the day when the Nordic nations offer to pay me compensation for the damage that their ancestors did to my ancestors (rape, pillage, slavery, economic damage etc) during the Viking invasions, and when the Italians pay me compensation for the slaves that the Roman Empire made of my ancestors.

That will happen, right?

Ah wait a minute, I think I left out the phrase "When hell freezes over".

I need say nothing more, as I think it says it all!

Esther Stanford, the secretary of Rendezvous of Victory, an African-led pressure group that is demanding compensation.

A lawyer and vice-chairman of a linked organisation, the Pan African Reparation Coalition, she said Mr Blair's statement of regret fell far short of the hopes of many descendents of slaves.

"They are empty words, empty gestures," she said. "If he wants to do something that will restore his credibility he needs to set up a national commission to examine the legacy of the holocaust of slavery on the lives of people today.

"Reparation means to repair the harm. We need to have a full assessment made of the injuries done to us. We are talking about educational repairs, economic repairs, family repairs, cultural repairs, repairs of every kind that we need to sustain ourselves. It will cost.

"This nation has benefited extremely in financial and other terms in relation to African enslavement and colonisation, so it is right to hold this Government responsible."

    "legacy of the holocaust of slavery on the lives of people today"

    What, like living in a liberal democracy instead of a dictatorship? Having a life expectancy of 70 instead of 17? That the sort of thing she has in mind?

    I think what she means is being taught that as a slave you are stripped of any self esteem and can only exist on handouts.

    I for one would be happy to pay the claims of anyone that suffered first hand due to slavery under the British Empire. Likewise, being a benevolent soul, I would extend this to immediate family, that is sons and daughters. If any of them want to step forward ....

    Is this the same Africa we send millions of pounds of aid to every year?

  4. Uh, off topic...

    Mr Frost, I attempted to tag you with the "10 Things I would Never Do" meme, but I couldn't find an email address. It was a few days ago but the challenge is still there if you want to take it up...

    If anyone needs an explanation of why "the Africa Problem" is so unsolvable they need hardly look any further really.

    A little education can be very dangerous. A lot of education for a few people representing others with a little education is a recipe for total disaster.

    Maybe certain groups could put in a counter claim for Aids?

    Of course if she wishes to sue the Ecologists for the effects of several million deaths a year from Malaria related to the blanket ban on the use of DDT for a few decades I might have some sympathy. Provided that the various well funded Eco groups pay with their own money and none of mine.

    I assume the real reason for this is so that she can enflame more inter-tribal genocide within the African continent as the legal precedent for compensation claims ripples down the historic chain of supply.
