The Boers are of Dutch descent...and they proved to be very tough fighters, when the power of the British empire tried to dispossess them of their land in the early 20th century. ..Very effective with their 7mm Mausers !
It was when fighting against the Boers, that Winston came up with the statement claiming what a thrill it was,...
"to be shot at....and missed".
Now that the South African government has robbed them of their lands, and even even sanctioned the murdering of some, will the world court award them some "reparations"?
...Don't hold your breath !
