    Impressive (sarcastic)

    Sometimes I find myself totally underwhelmed - as in this example.

    The story leads:

    South Africa's targeted consumer inflation quickened slightly to 3,4% year-on-year in October from 3,2% in September, official data showed on Wednesday.

    As is normal, there follows some comments from the experts. How's this one for extraordinary insight:
    Efficient Group economist Freddie Mitchell agreed that the figure increased but was still quite low. "I think it should stay within the target band for the rest of the year."
    Erm... Ja. Pretty safe bet, I reckon
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Pretty much the same as the other day when Darren Scott phoned one of our high ranking politicians and spoke to her for 2 minutes using only "fancy, non descriptive" words ( read political jargon ) and in the process said nothing. !!
