Pandering to the pathetic
No holds barred in your face factual reporting
even of what you may not realise you should want to know
Your advertising is only as good as the people who see it – repeatedly!
You want to do business with O!O readers – people with money and control of corporate budgets.
And you want to reach them behind their desks, making decisions!
Oudtshoorn. 8 February 2013. 07h30. After reading the final ENS Forensics report on travelling and accommodation claims by the Eden mayor, I wrote Western Cape DA leader Ivan Meyer last night to demand action:
The Premier; you, the Provincial Leader; and the Constituency Head owe the people of Eden an explanation for the DA’s torpidity, and a clear statement of tactic to prevent any repeat of such outrageous administrative blustery.
The “process” by which the ENS findings are to be managed through caucus, council and ministry is nothing but a cheap ruse for delaying an exigent political requisite: Some 2,500 years after the story was first told in the so-called Priestly, or P-Source, yet another is to be driven from Eden.
No alternative will suffice.
Us people of Eden deserve respect from the ruling party.
I await your response by no later than noon, Monday, February 11, failing which I shall publish the findings.
If you think the above a threat I will at least have the joy of delighting in your perceptivity.
One of my confidants charged me within an hour of receipt to follow through with my threat or face his challenge on O!O at 12h01 on Monday:
“I’ll bet you a pound to a pinch of shit that you get no response. I’ll be on O!O at 12:01 Monday and ready to comment. You forgot to mention all the breaches of the code of conduct for DA public representatives…
“One thing is for certain, if you do not come clean on what you know you will be complicit in a coverup and I will call you on that…”
It is time that the DA be called to account for its atrocious political management of Eden Municipalities.
Ye gods and faeries, correspondence with DA functionaries this week revealed individuals arguing themselves into Gordian knots – knowingly or unwittingly admitting to outrageous “policies” and “strategies” and “tactics”. These are people charged with managing our very towns and the Eden district!
But the DA “Leadership” is bent on one thing: more power after future elections… For our benefit of course.
Hopefully O!O readers no longer believe in the Tooth Fairy either.
Here’s a thought: If you have a complexion not caucasion, and previously belonged to the Independent Democrats, or currently to Cope, you have political licence in DA councils and administrations. If you used to be ANC… You are untouchable.
The poster boys rule, O.K!
Pandering to the pathetic. It is emetic.
O, and by the pantheons, don’t speak your mind. Is there even one DA councillor with crown jewels!?
One… That is not under siege by the Marks Building Militia!?
