Drewan Baird. Oudtshoorn. 4 February 2014.
14h08. The mayor suggests that DA councillors not be remunerated for lack of activity.
The speaker confirms that Nel and Van Wyk may not vote… The DA walks.
14h05. Opening with prayer, courtesy of councillor Stalmeester.
14h00. The DA’s here!
08h10. Here we go again.
The budget issue, such as it is, must be addressed, put to bed, berceused and settled.
WWDD… What will the DA do?
The DA can do one of four things.
1. The DA does not show up, and confirms its anserine behaviour;
2. The DA shows up and leaves, and confirms its anserine conduct;
3. The DA shows up and votes the budget matter, or allow it to be voted, and confirms its anserine demeanour;
4. Whatever, and confirms its anserine trait.
There is only one certainty about the deportment of the DA caucus: That it is uncertain exactly how cark (luverly word, ain’t it!?) it may be at any given point in time. O, and the corollary: That whatever the doings… it will be nonsensical.
It will be even more difficult for poor Helen Zille to explain her Oudtshoorn caucus than Mamphela Ramphele.
And explain Zille will have to explain…
