We at Boggart Blog are proud to have become part of an international campaign to save one of the most endangered species on earth, the African Clitoris.
These charming little creatures which live inside ladies naughty bits, have it seems been hunted to extinction by African males who believed for many generations women had no business enjoying themselves.
Colonialisation brought some enlightenment but unfortunately that led to the African clitoris becoming a valuable trophy among the elite. The hunters redoubled their efforts, and when the creatures became scarce even left the shores of Africa to pursue the bounty to the land former colonial powers where African women, desperate to protect their Clitorii had fled.
Soon the African clitoris was being hunted in the streets of London, the savannas of Birmingham and the rain forests of Manchester. This week saw the first successful prosecutions for Female Genital Mutilation in British Courts. This give you some idea just how serious the plight of the African Clitoris has become.
Why do Africans hunt the Clitoris so fanatically? Why do Africans do any of the things they do? People on the left of the political spectrum blame it on the effects of colonialisation. Others say most of Africa’s problems are a result of too little colonialisation. Take for example the case of Burkina Faso, which sounds like a nasty disease contracted through having unprotected sex with warthogs but is in fact an African country.
You’d never heard of it? No worries, neither have most of the people who live there. Burkina Faso is one of the poorest nations on earth. Out of 229 nations, there are only 26 whose inhabitants manage to earn less per head every year and this includes Italy where sensible people don’t earn anything at all officially.
There is little electricity in Burkina Faso, and where there is a supply it doesn’t work for days on end. Fresh water is at a premium and in many places even water that an elephant has shat in is scarce. Education is practically non-existent.
The men sit in the shade of the Shea trees when they are not hunting and destroying the African Clitoris, whilst the women laboriously grind the Shea nuts into Sheanut butter to complement the endless diet of millet porridge. When it gets cold at night, the men stir themselves to chop down the nearest Shea tree for firewood thus making a bad situation even worse. Every year they lose 32,000 hectares of the very trees they are dependent on for protein in their diet. That’s the kind of place it is …
And what happens to all the aid money given by western taxpayers to the great and good, the charity millionaires in the hope that their benificence and superior intelligence can improve life in places like Burkino Faso? Take a look at this:
Tony Blair handed £3 million slice of Barack Obamas aid for Africans
Tony Blair is celebrating another multi-million pound contract after his charity secured a key deal with the US government.
This time, the former prime ministers Africa Governance Initiative (AGI) has won a £3.3 million contract to play a key role in Barack Obamas flagship African aid programme.
The three-year deal with the US Agency for International Development (USAID) gives Mr Blairs charity an important role in the initiative, called Power Africa. The money represents more than AGIs combined total income in 2012, the most recent set of accounts available.
