DA displays its disposition

A remarkable solecism exposes the caucus

Drewan Baird. Oudtshoorn. 25 January 2014. 06h10. At the December Madiba events they were absent. But for Raymond Wildschut and Peter Roberts.

They attend not municipal functions, committee meetings, or the like.

They have perfected “the art of not being seen”, introduced many years ago by messrs Monty Python.

Yet, on Wednesday night, there they were – the pale ones; the white ones, at the KKNK function: Chris MacPherson; Pierre Nel; Julia le Roux Krowitz; Diane de Jager; Johan Fourie.

Free snacks and drinks.

No Executive Mayor designate by coup Ben van Wyk; no Eden Executive Mayor Wessie… only half the caucus. The white half. But even had they all been there!

Remarkable: Two black DA councillors (out of a total of 13 councillors) attend the Madiba event; 5 white DA councillors attend the KKNK event.

It says something about the “unity” of the caucus; it screams something about the DA’s priorities. And, especially, about attitude.

I wrote Helen Zille: “You need a PR Deus Ex Machina, Helen!

“O, and some vanilla common sense, all else continually failing.

“Hee’ll, I’ll give you a special rate: 133% of my normal fee.”

  1. Geskok om te sien Adv Glynis gaan nou op DA ticket parliament toe. Sal ons verbaas wees om eendag uit te vind dat Adv Knipe ook die heel tyd politiek gespeel het ?

  2. Onthou jy die twee byboeglike naamwoorde wat ek vroeg in die jaar jou toegeskryf het? Hulle geld steeds! Jou beriggewing dui op polarisering, goedkoop polletiek kenmerkend van ‘n party wat kniediep in die moeilikheid is by sy eie kiesers! Kom met beter argumente die wat jy nou gebruik is uitgedien, selfs ANC “ondersteuners” weet dit.

    Vertel ons eerder wie laasweek in die hof verslyn het. Jy weet mos van wie ek praat?! Die persoon wie ju so gekoggel het….. Iets van ‘n standerd…. Jy onthou mos nog. Waarvoor het hy en sy trawante laasweek innie hof verskyn. Ek kon niks optel dat die “ekppouser, in your”fys fekts” of ” meledministrysin” iets skrys oor ‘n saak wat hyself ontbloot het nie!

    Nou hoekom nie? Ooooo ja nou onthou ek….. die “elkspouser” werk nou vir die einste peroom en die persoon betaal jou pay! Hoe’t jy nou weer hulle genoem…..iets soos trogvreters van beroerd plein!!!

  3. Die ANC maak jou dood as jy betoog teen swak dienslewering. Met die ANC moet jou skoolkinders eers in puttoilette val en in menslike afval verdrink voordat hulle spoeltoilette vir ons kinders gee. Dit terwyl amptenare spoeltoilette het en ons kinders puttoilette moet gebruik!!
