Ons het die afgelope tyd weereens vreeslik baie riemtelegramme en ‘voice clips’ oor hierdie saak sien kom en gaan.  En ek dink nogal die mense wat ons in die see wil injaag het elke oomblik daarvan geniet…terwyl hulle besig was met (ook) hierdie poging om swart stemme te werf vir die volgende algemene verkiesing.  Want dit is al wat dit is, ‘n baie deursigtige politieke foefie om steun by die stembus te werf.  Dit is vir alle praktiese doeleindes onmoontlik vir enige regering om grond summier te onteien ‘…sonder billike kompensasie…’, selfs al word so ‘n land se grondwet aangepas om dit moontlik te maak.  Ek het dit nooit geweet nie, maar die gesag van enige land se grondwet word oorskrei deur die internasionale verdragte en ooreenkomste waaraan daardie land gebonde is.  Ek kan in hierdie geval ook maar net vra: Is dit wat die Engelse soldate uiteindelik na Suid-Afrika gaan bring? Die ANC se poging om die Engelse se belange hier te nasionaliseer? (Wat die nasionalisering van die Reserwebank insluit.)

Hierdie skrywer het sy keel hees gepraat om die nuwe vlaag van uiterste blanke pessimisme oor die toekoms te help hokslaan, maar sonder enige klaarblyklike sukses.  Die versteekte agente wat hierdie tipe bangmaakstorie so ywerig (help) promoveer is dalk net té diep ingegrawe en té goed georganiseer om deur blote rede uitgeknikker te kan word.  En nou beleef ons sowaar ook nog dat hulle besig is om die ou-ou duimsuigstorie van die Nag Van Die Lang Messe te laat herleef en al meer deel te maak van hierdie grondgryp-kwessie. Hierdie is nét so duidelik ‘n poging om steun vir die Suidlandersbeweging op ons volk af te dwing.  En die probleem lê nie by die groep as sulks nie, maar wel by die leierselement. Die volgelinge is pragtige mense, maar hulle word deur die uitbuiting van hul angsgevoelens oor die toekoms op sleeptou geneem deur ‘n leierselemnet wat die Boervolk glad nie vriendelik gesind is nie.

En die sleutel tot die probleem lê, na my oorwoë mening, by die voorkoms dat (veral) hierdie groep Godvresende mense geen, maar absoluut géén, geloof en vertroue in die Beloftes het wat ons Vader in Sy Woord aan ons gegee het nie.  Ek wonder partymaal of ons dieselfde Bybel gebruik, en as dit wel so is of hulle dit hoegenaamd ooit lees!  Hoe kan sulke mense nog Vader se Genade wil verwag?

Die een liggie wat egter al duideliker voor in die tonnel begin skyn is dat daar tog ‘konserwatiewe’ mense is wat stadig maar seker besig is om wakker te word vir die leuens en bedrog wat in (veral) Siener van Rensburg se naam aan die konserwatiewe deel van ons volk afgesmeer word.  Ek verwys hier spesifiek na ‘n groep wat deur ‘n sekere dame, wat hulle nogal voorgaan, gewaarsku word om nie alles te glo wat hulle vanuit ‘regse skrywerskringe’ hoor nie.  Ek probeer tans om haar te bereik om hierdie saak aan my te bevestig, en as sy bereid is om saam te werk sal ek op ‘n later stadium weer hieroor rapporteer.  Sy is meer as welkom om haar mening ook op hierdie blad te laat hoor. Maar selfs op hierdie stadium, of sy dan hier wil deelneem of nie, wil ek haar toejuig en sê: Bravo, ons kort meer sulke mense en ek vind dit baie interessant dat dit juis ons vrouens is wat besig om wakker te word en op te staan vir Reg en Waarheid.  Daar is sommer baie van die dapper en morrende regse ‘manne’ wat natuurlik glo dat die vrou so min by Vader tel dat hulle nie eers in die Hemel kan kom nie.  Moenie bekommerd wees hieroor nie Elsa, ek dink nogal dat hulle u werklik nie daar sal sien nie, want dit kan onmoontlik hul eindbestemming wees…nie met so ‘n siening en houding nie!

In elk geval, ek plaas, soos gewoonlik, die bewyse vir wat ek sê hieronder.

Groete,

Frik Pretorius.

Britain warns Malema: land expropriation without compensation is illegal in international law. It is contrary to treaties that South Africa signed and ratified- Mark Philip

THE LEADER OF THE ECONOMIC FREEDOM FIGHTERS EFF JULIUS MALEMA MIGHT FIND THIS VERY DISTASTEFUL, AFTER A BRITISH LEGAL EXPERT’S EXPLICATED FURTHER  ON EXPROPRIATION OF LAND WITHOUT COMPENSATION

Response written by Mark Philip Malcolm Horn – London Barrister. * No one does business with a thief, and no one extends credit to a thief.

You can not have land expropriation without compensation. It is illegal in international law. It is contrary to a dozen treaties that South Africa has signed and ratified. As such, it is a principle that is also enshrined in South African domestic law. You can not change the Constitution therefore to make it legal – Treaty law is superior law, it always applies.

The proposal, if directed at land held by the white community, would also contravene half a dozen international treaties, notably those condemning apartheid, that South Africa since the ANC took power, has signed and ratified.

The same argument applies above, but now with the ironic twist that any such initiative would result in the ANC being condemned under international law for actions that the world would condemn as being racist.

So no, it can not be done. When Mugabe tried this, the point was litigated. These were the legal conclusions. Now, Mugabe pushed ahead, so what happened?

Well, the claims for illegal expropriation still are valid in law – at some point the Zimbabwean Government will need to pay them.

The consequence of their illegal policy is not forgotten with time. If they ever want to be re-integrated into the global community, they will need to pay.

As to the consequences of such a policy – Zimbabwe is a good example. There are no sanction on Zimbabwe. That is a myth. The only sanctions are those targeted on Mugabe and a few of his associates, and they are in place because of human rights abuses.

The economy has crashed, there is a 90% unemployment rate, for the very simple fact that Zimbabwe has shown itself to be a thief. No one does business with a thief, and no one extends credit to a thief.

You can not run a modern economy without access to the international market, and for that you need credit. The Zimbabwean economy has declined by 70% from what it was at independence simply because no one does business with a thief.

So what would be the consequence of a policy of expropriation without compensation in South Africa? Well, as noted, such a policy would be illegal.

The international community will immediately take note that South Africa has become a rogue state. That is not too much to worry, about, its just political. There are plenty of rogue states around the world.

What would happen, however, in terms of South Africa’s access to the international markets is of far more concern. South Africa would have signaled that property rights are insecure. That will mean that international investment in South Africa would come to a screeching halt.

This has been happening for many years in any event – that is why South Africa is now ranked no. 7 in gold mining, when it used to be no. 1.

It is why South Africa has a 27% unemployment rate, and a 50% youth unemployment rate. So the response could well be: “who cares, we do not need their investment”. That may well indeed be true.

But, that is not where the real crisis occurs. South Africa needs access to international financial markets because it has a trade and budget deficit. It needs access to international financial markets to pay for its bloated public sector, and to pay social grants to all those unemployed people.

To raise that money, it needs the banks. Now this is where the consequences of a policy of expropriation without compensation hits home.

Banks have, as is the nature of banking, highly leveraged Balance Sheets. They lend as multiples of the assets they actually have. They need to conform with the Basel ratio’s. If they have a rise in bad debt, they can easily wipe out their Balance Sheets – they then become bankrupt, and they collapse.

So what do you think will happen if land is expropriated without compensation to the Banks? The answer is, they will see a rise in bad debt, and they will collapse.

That is not the end of the story. South Africa has seen its black population rise from approximately 2.5 m in the mid 19th century, to its current level of 50 m. The 2.5 m may be taken as the sustainable level of the black population without the benefits of colonialism, and of modern agriculture.

That 2.5 m number is important, because only 13% of South Africa is suited for agriculture, and only 3% is high quality agricultural land. The vast majority of South African agricultural land requires the application of modern technology.

Farming in South Africa is highly capital intensive. Farmers depend on bank lending not only to buy their farms, but also to provide essential working capital.

So, what happens if the land is expropriated without compensation, if the banks then collapse? Well it means no one is able to provide the essential working capital. If the farms then collapse, then up to 95% of the existing black population is at risk of starvation.
The banks can not access international markets, international lenders will not lend, South Africa then descends into chaos. At point, the international community would probably intervene military to restore order. As such, South Africa would have become yet another Failed State in the traditional African mold.”
