Like his parent organisation, AfriForum’s Ernst Roets is a slippery customer.  He disingenuously neglected to mention that Malema’s alleged “victim”, one Cassie Moller, was extremely verbally abusive and threatening towards the black staff before Malema intervened.

While violence, battery and assault (verbal abuse alone can be enough to constitute assault) cannot be condoned, it is typical of both AfriForum and Malema to paint such incidents with a, er, black-and-white motif.  The idea that Malema is the unprovoked aggressor against an angelically innocent Moller is a self-serving pot of bubbling slime.

The more I learn of AfriForum’s systemic dishonesty, habitual pathetic whining, pervasive spinelessness, narrow-minded bigotry and partisanship, the more that body disgusts me.

Ja nee, I chacked (laik in benoni bru) that video out and to me it also _seems_ that said person was behaving badly before Malema and co step in. I neglected to comment to see if someone else agreed.

But also, that little push? Assault? Technically sure but...

Since we were on the topic of privatisation...

Who needs the post office anyway?

I find it telling that workers, after having been warned numerous times in years now long past, in this country are literally striking themselves into unemployment.

Renewed the licence disk for a trailer today at the Post Office. Counter guy took his sweet time about it. Asked if he was striking or merely on a go-slow. Got a look.

The easiest way to end the strike would be to post the workers pay checks. New meaning to "The check is in the mail".

That was my brother's main point of contention when the petrol joggies were striking.  Evil  He just kept saying, but we don't need them and they maybe making people aware of that! In other countries motorists simply pour their own petrol at the pumps   Cheesy
