    At what point have things gone too far?

    How do you figure out when things have gone too far? Today the sports minister has power to override the selection process, what are we looking at tomorrow?

    I picked up the sports story in the news tonight, and other than shock, the first thing that crossed my mind was really depressing — is it time to seriously consider leaving?

    It is not something that ever really crosses my mind. I've always wanted to stay here, and invest myself in what we have. But, does the government actually want that?

    How many steps in the wrong direction can we take? It makes me wonder, what was the first law that was passed that resulted in apartheid?

    I'm really dismayed, and disillusioned.

    I don't know for sure...

    But our first step towards legislating our current course was an amendment to the constitution that introduced the concept of fair racial discrimination.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.
