Orania votes








Julius Malema hangs an ANC poster in Orania (Andre Grobler, Sapa)














It seems that there are still Afrikaaners that still long for the days of being MURDERED in their beds and being led by wankers like the one pictured here. For the time being, I am hoping that these 3 ANC votes were cast by munt civilian IEC volunteers in Orania.

The thought that whites in Orania still long for the days of ANC-led Boer genocide, is downright depressing...

Orania - Despite a visit from ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema in the run-up to the general elections, the district of Orania voted overwhelmingly for the FF+ in Wednesday's elections.

In results released at the Independent Electoral Commission centre in Pretoria on Thursday, the FF+ had a clear lead with 242 votes, out of 279 votes cast.

The ANC managed only three votes in the white Afrikaner enclave in the Northern Cape.

In March, Malema met Orania Movement president Carel Boshoff junior in Orania. After the meeting he hung ANC election posters along the town's main road.
The DA was voted into second place with 26 votes. Cope and the ACDP each received three votes. Two votes were spoilt.

and a happy St.George's day to you, Islandshark!

Eh, Viking, I don't think "Islandshark" celebrates St George's day! That's like telling someone who flies the South African Flag to celebrate Day of the Vow!
Let me put it this way: a Boer doesn't see his or herself as South African, but as a Boer, just as an English Person doesn't see his or herself as British, but as English!

Get it?!

Thank you Viking.

They've had the usual complaints from people who reckon it should be celebrated properly.

I also think they should - so we can work from home!

Hey Islandshark, I've been living in your country for ten years now and you're the first person I've met who celebrates St Georges day BUT flies a Union Jack!

I used to be a teacher and taught over 100 000 kids in over 90 schools in England: the kids in the comps would only ever fly St George and never fly UJ, while the kids in the RC and pte schools considered themselves "British" and would never celebrate St George's day!

Nevertheless over those ten years there's been a definite increase in tribalism, with more people flying the flag of their Nation rather than the Union Jack that you so proudly display. In fact the only time I've seen it flown over the last five years was during the olympics!

Two things - I have a huge St George's in the window of my study.

It's only called the Union Jack when it is flown on a seaworthy vessel. Otherwise you refer to it as the Union Flag.

I would have thought that as a teacher you should know that.

I'm well aware of the fact, but in SA they call it the UJ as the "Union Flag" reffered to that of the Union of SA!

However, what you call it doesn't change the fact that of the hundreds of thousands of people I've met in the UK, you are the first to see yourself as BOTH English AND British, OR MORE SPECIFICALLY to fly the British Flag on your website BUT the English one in the window of your study!

Just extremely surprised, that's all!
