    A reshuffle of the political party pack ahead?

    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    The WWJD effect is going to be interesting.

    When the opposition gets powerful, time to bring on the rigging, and do it properly, so that you win enough to change the constitution. Just a thought on what to expect.

    This is a brilliant tactical move by both parties. A win-win situation.

    Could folks imagine what SA could become with leadership of this caliber & mental horsepower?

    The Association of National Corruption will get a run for their money, I'm sure.

    I sure hope that the citizens of this beautiful country will realise that a political party is not a club that you belong to, which you have to defend and support for the rest of your life.

    I still need to meet with an honest politician; no matter which party or even which country - they all have their own agendas. Some defraud government with tenders, others inflate their travel claims etc. The worst is when you entitle yourself with a homestead which cost the tax payer more than R200, 000, while people get killed over water!
    Excellence is not a skill; its an attitude...

    The day I look forward to is when we can dump proportional representation and directly elect our representatives (and hold them directly responsible). This party list story puts way too much power in the hands of the party.

    And every little step that breaks down division on racial lines brings us a step closer to that possibility.

    The other thing that would be cool is if we could directly elect our President.

    Strangely Of I late I have being thinking along those lines, it is time the whole system of demo-crazy changes. I have debating with myself and thinking it is time, where the government is run more like a business, and each leader of a department is hired by the people and can be directly fired by the people. E.g You want to run education bring your credentials to the people and let them judge if you are fit to do so.
