Anyone who has read Bruce Chatwin's book will know about the Boers of Patagonia. There's something about the ends of the earth which must appeal to defeated peoples, although the Confederates only made it as far as Brazil.
Time was when the Boers were seen as rather heroic by those who opposed British imperialism. The 1900 General Election in Radnorshire saw the Unionist's seeking to exploit the pro-Boer sympathies of the Liberal candidate Frank Edwards. It didn't do him any harm as he won back the seat, provoking a near riot in Llandrindod's Middleton Street with the Union Jack being burnt by Edwards' supporters after he was attacked by the Unionists. Perhaps the town's Victorian Festival could stage a re-enactment?
The Unionist Radnorshire Standard put Edwards' victory down to pro-Boer sentiment and suggested that the local Radicals invite Paul Kruger over to celebrate. Back in Parliament Frank Edwards campaigned for an inquiry into the British concentration camps in which 26000 Boer women and children had died during the war.
Of course Welsh sympathy for the Boers disappeared during the apartheid era, although it's now 21 years since the Afrikaners voted to end that racist system and chose to become just another minority ethnic group in a state they had created. I doubt if there's much sympathy for the on-going Boer travails amongst the London chatterati and their Welsh followers. After all, these stubborn, rural dwelling Calvinists with their obscure language are just the sort of folk that stand in the way of the cultural hegemony the elite crave.
