Shall We Have the Boers to Tea?

Listening to the ... um ... discourse of the Tea Bag Brigade over the last while increasingly reminded me of something, but I couldn't put my finger on it until some department colleagues and I started discussing blood and earth nationalism and the Tea Baggers. And then I remembered. No wonder ... this southern-drive lost cause drivel has a twin in Africa.
