Critics 'dead to me', says Australian minister in SAfrica farmers row

Critics 'dead to me', says Australian minister in SAfrica farmers rowA senior minister vowed Thursday to press on with a plan to bring white South African farmers to Australia, hitting out at criticism from “crazy lefties” who he said were “dead to me”. Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton sparked uproar last week by singling out the farmers’ need to flee “horrific circumstances” for a “civilised country”. It also set off claims at home that Dutton was a racist amid fears that it signalled a return to the “White Australia” policy, referring to laws in place for seven decades from 1901 that prevented non-white immigrants settling Down Under.
