The poor official opposition. They have suddenly become irrelevant. With Cyril moving the aNc towards the centre, the DA have found themselves wanting. julius knows this too - he's going all out to remain relevant. First it was the land... Continue reading

What to do? My last post which was published on Biznews this morning. In this article I reverted back to type and poured out my usual anti-davies vitriol, all of which hoped that Rob Davies (uppercase because of search engines)... Continue reading

Disclaimer: please excuse the uppercase usage for zuma, gigaba (abagig to this blog), davies (should be bolshie bob) and dud miyeni (in the land of sheer incompetence this one truly stands out, we are talking mkhwebane incompetent). It’s been almost... Continue reading

Nodderfok. Useless arsehole that he was and continues to be. Now I listen to Jessie Doosart telling a public that detests both equally how great zuma was. He wasn’t Continue reading

With the removal of IRBA the number of VAs have dropped from about 450 to 72 (this figure is exact and comes from SANAS' website). The two graphs below show the split between provinces and which cities they operate in.... Continue reading

How SANAS loves its paperwork. This is a spinoff from bolshie bob's desire to create paperwork and red tape. How this is going to result in transformation resides only in his red mind. The internet was trawled for a trainee... Continue reading

Whilst we wait for Cyril to do something about this abomination known as the BEE codes I might as well provide my loyal readership with a short tutorial on ownership. Before I start I need to stress that ownership is... Continue reading

Our good friend and dyed in the wool minister of trade and industry declined to sit on the anc's NEC in December. My thinking was that bolshie had done enough destruction for one lifetime, something which the country will pay... Continue reading

There is reason to be cheerful. The news is full of reports of a zuma recall within the next week. Universities are on tenterhooks as the multitudes demand entry - all because Julius is trying to outpopulist zuma. And the... Continue reading

Dear Cyril Ramaphosa (notice the uppercase - there are very few aNc [one third uppercase] politicians that I refer to in the uppercase) We've not met before although I have met a few of the people at your foundation and... Continue reading

To put the blame zuma solely for the mess that is South Africa is too simplistic, but we can blame him for pretty much 99% of the mess. He is a despicable specimen. Such a strange man, one who firmly... Continue reading

And there I was thinking that this awesome government would have kept it under wraps so as not to tip the economy over. As abagig says - "transformaysheein uber alles". This is going to be a nasty document - specifically... Continue reading

If anyone is able to send me the EEA4 (most recent if possible) for any large listed company operating in the financial sector. A large bank or insurance company would be acceptable. I need this for a blog post on... Continue reading

This analysis is not spot on but it’s not far off. The score comes out at 24 points – but it’s assumed that the enterprise/supplier development/socio-economic development points have been bought to get to this score. This is non-compliant. You... Continue reading

"I can't have this because it's sugarish." Is not a statement, it's a question. Strangely, such questions tend to be only asked when it comes to sugar. Never does he ask such a question when it comes to vegetables, mince,... Continue reading

Abraham Maslow's theory has been accepted, criticised and lambasted. The anc government hasn't bothered with any of that, they've just plain ignored it. I believe there are some people within that cabinet with a modicum of competence, but such competence... Continue reading
