A while ago walrus asked be on a post was I advocating recolonizing Africa? I wasn’t, I was advocating non intervention (as usual) but as recolonization is inevitable, if we’re not going to stop throwing money at them perhaps we should be in their grabbing some of the goodies alongside our G8 partners – led inevitably by the Politically correct hypocrites of Obamaland.
“A landmark G8 initiative to boost agriculture and relieve poverty has been damned as a new form of colonialism after African governments agreed to change seed, land and tax laws to favour private investors over small farmers.
Ten countries made more than 200 policy commitments, including changes to laws and regulations after giant agribusinesses were granted unprecedented access to decision-makers over the past two years.
The pledges will make it easier for companies to do business in Africa through the easing of export controls and tax laws, and through governments ringfencing huge chunks of land for investment.”
