    One of the most racist comics I’ve seen recently.

    Gee, that really does sound like another global superpower as well.
    But at least the Chinese are investing in clean energy as a national priority.

    ‘Gee, that really does sound like another global superpower as well’
    I sense sour grapes, jealousy of Lesotho will just give one indigestion.

    “Uppity”? “Eats with sticks”? I hope Oliphant gets some heat for this…

    I always knew Oliphant was a xenophobe, at least where Asia is concerned.

    Yeah, little known factoid. Another one is that Oliphant is from Austral Africa, as his surname implies. And where’s Lesotho? Exactly! In South America!


    Oliphant here showing he is of a different era and, like 91 yr old Prince Philip in the UK, when he commits jingoist gaffes, we tend to forgive his faux pas.

    But it’s the free-market-property-rights-rule-of-law-capitalists who are the problem.

    ‘As they say in Sotho, “Gracias!” ’


    Dumela Apikoros,
    Ooops, Dumelang Apikoros & Johnny!
    O kae?
    Ke a leboha for showing me my birth country’s map (it totally surrounds little ol’ Lesotho).
    Ke tswa South Africa. Born a few miles north of Lesotho.


    Actually, seSotho was the one language I had 3 years of and learnt almost nothing. :(
    Seriously, we had maybe like 5 classes in 3 bloody years (equivalent to 5th to 7th grades). To my eternal regret, back in those days it just wasn’t taken seriously. :p
    BUT I did learn how to greet, thank, count to ten and comment on the weather. :-| Also, Rabobi! which means webcrawler = Spiderman! Dunno why but they dubbed the cartoon Spiderman to Sesotho and I used to watch it. Anyway. The interesting thing was, in Botswana, they speak Tswana and it is fairly close to Sesotho. Greeting’s the same but thank you / Ke a leboha = Ke a lebocha (soft gutteral on the “cha”. So I impressed my wife on our honeymoon when we visited Gaberone. Alas, we never did get round to driving through Lesotho. Next time, when I show my daughter the ol’ neighbourhood.


    As they say in my mother-tongue: “De nada!”



    Anyway, although Oliphant is being a tad jingoist today, one of his complaints isn’t far off the mark:
    “Chinese Pollution study Blocked”
