All glory to Zanu-PF and their heroic for and with the full support of the Zimbabwian masses against British Imperialism! The tide is beginning to turn! Accepting short term suffering often has long term benefits...

"Zimbabwe's often violent land reform programme has not been the complete economic disaster widely portrayed, a new study has found.

Most of the country's 4,000 white farmers - then the backbone of the country's agricultural economy - were forced from their land, which was handed over to about a million black Zimbabweans.

The study's lead author, Ian Scoones from the UK's Institute of Development Studies at Sussex University, told BBC News he was "genuinely surprised" to see how much activity was happening on the farms visited during the 10-year study.

"People were getting on with things in difficult circumstances and doing remarkably well," he said.

He declines, however, to characterise it as a success."

Things are stabilizing and food production is on the up...Of course land reform in the short term was going to cause some problems....But they have been less than was made out in the Imperialist media.

Things are getting better and better.

The Far Left is quite happy for countries to kill, starve and afflict their populations in the pursuit of extreme socialism.

As long as they aren't white countries. No, this romantic role is to be reserved for their coloured comrades. Romantic Venezuela, Cambodia, Zimbabwe represent the dream of the Left that they are unwilling to publicly endorse for people over here. But they want it.

LOL....."Extreme Socialism"? We are talking long over due land reforms of the type that the Brits themselves introduced into Ireland in the 1880s...

If only Zanu-PF were extreme socialists....These reforms are LONG over due but better late than never.

It is incredible to think that there is someone, somewhere who justifies Mugabe's policies. They don't even do that in Zimbabwe. This site goes from bad to worse.

Seven, land reform and redistribution was much need and long overdue in Zimbabwe. However Mugabe & Co with ANC compliance from South Africa has turned Zimbabwe into a basket case.

Mugabe's relationship with the ANC is crap to the say the least.

The fact that BBC are admitting what they are admitting says something.

Im sure that Anglo-Celt could tell us how land reform in Ireland was such a disaster.
