Lucius Malfoy: Don't Lease Wizard Land to Muggles!
In a press-release issued today, Lucius Malfoy of the Wizard National Fund (WNF) wrote: "We are gratified that the Government of Wizards, which since 1961 has been entrusted with management of Wizard lands through the Wizard Land Authority (WLA), recognized that the land purchased by the Wizards for the Wizard purebloods should remain in the hands of its rightful owners. "This decision of the Wizard parliament reaffirms the vision and the dream of Lord Voldemort and the millions of wizards over the past 106 years who contributed and participated in the rebirth of a Wizard nation after 2,000 years. The land of the Wizards is part of the very existence of the Wizard people from as far back as Salazar Slytherin. We are a people linked to our land. Now and forever." Mr. Malfoy implied that Muggles whose land was taken from them in the Great War, or paid for with a few galleons, have no rights to that land "since it is not part of their very existence." Mr. Malfoy's statement came today despite a stinging editorial against the parliament's decision from the respected Daily Prophet.
