It is regrettable that the “Rhodes Must Fall” folly has spread from South Africa to Oriel College. My people – the Afrikaners – have greater reason to dislike Rhodes than anyone else. He was the architect of the Anglo-Boer War that had a disastrous impact on our people. Yet the National Party government never thought of removing his name from our history.
