A 'new' report says that Africa can feed itself within a generation as long as the corrupt and apathetic governements decide that investing in it's country should actually come before nepotism, brutal defeat of the political opposition and plundering the nations wealth for personal gain. (OK I embellished the main reason, bit but I suspect that the authour was just being nice ) Even though it's a 'The Pope's a Catholic' annoucement, it's sure to have the leftie Hand-wringers whinging about the damage to needy African charites. Personally I don't touch 'African' (Read Comic relief, Live Aid/8, etc) charites as I feel that I'd rather support UK one's first. Just look at how Zimbabwe's efficient and profitable agricultural industry was decimated by political wrong-doings (This time I'm being nice) BBC News - Africa 'can feed itself in a generation' No shit . . .
