EXCLUSIVE: Britsh Government “Welcomes” South Africa’s Implementation Of Confiscation Of White-Owned Farmland
Kipper Central can exclusively reveal emails which show Harriett Baldwin, the Minister Of State For Africa, explaining that the government “understands” the need for land to be taken from whites in South Africa without compensation.
Baldwin continued to say that the government “welcomes” the implementation of the new law in the African country, which will see the government seize land from white farmers and give it to their black counterparts.
The controversial policy to confiscate land from white farmers without compensation was taken by the South African government in February and passed with a strong majority of over 70% in the nation’s parliament, with almost universal cross-party support.
The UK government’s statement, which was sent to a constituent of Jeremy Hunt, reads: “The British Government understands the need for land reform in South Africa and we welcome the South African Government’s assurance that ‘the process of land distribution would be orderly within South African laws and taking into consideration both the social and economic impact.’
“We further welcome President Ramaphosa’s commitment that land reform will be carried out ‘without negatively affecting economic growth, agricultural production and food security’ and his assurance that he would ‘not allow any smash and grab interventions.'”
The constituent, who wishes to remain anonymous, wrote to their MP, Mr Hunt, asking for him to bring up the “deeply racist” policy in Parliament, suggesting that South Africa be removed from the Commonwealth for its actions.
Mr Hunt did not reply to the point about bringing up the policy in Parliament but forwarded his constituent’s correspondence to Mrs Baldwin, who clarified that the government “welcomes” the implementation of the policy in South Africa, while refusing to comment on its racism.
The constituent – who has forwarded the conversation to Kipper Central, replied to Mr Hunt saying: “I’m not sure if those are Ramaphosa’s words or Mugabe’s. Perhaps both.
“I’m deeply saddened to hear that my government is condemning the white farmers although I’m not surprised. We’ve done it before. We turned our backs on Rhodesia (a country once described as the bread basket of Africa that recently went through a famine because of the very policies that are now being put into place in South Africa), we even turned our backs on the whole commonwealth when we signed up to the common market as we started putting high tariffs on Australian, New Zealand and South African produce.
“I now ask how much aid will we provide once the famine starts in South Africa? Or perhaps which side will we sell arms to in the coming civil war? The Afrikaners? The Marxists? Both?”

Speaking exclusively to Kipper Central about the Government’s statement, UKIP London Assembly Member David Kurten said: “The UK govenment’s decision to support Zimbabwe-style farm confiscations in South Africa is astounding. This is at best, completely naïve, and ignores the current wave of violence and murders of famers, which is likely to increase. It will encourage hardcore elements who call white farmers ‘criminals’ who are guilty of ‘original sin’ on the basis of their skin colour.
“Theresa May’s government is now supporting Marxist-Leninist confiscation of land without compensation, which is what the ANC called for in its conference last year. It is not conservative and it is not fit for purpose.”
When the law was first introduced in South Africa, Julius Malema, the leader of the Marxist opposition party, said: “The time for reconciliation is over. Now is the time for justice. We must ensure that we restore the dignity of our people without compensating the criminals who stole our land.
“We are not calling for the slaughter of white people, at least for now”
