Re: Nelson Mandela

[QUOTE=DtheP47;1086743] A bit like the AccyWeb I reckon Margaret with a similar quota of incompetents, moral midgets, clowns, lunatics, dirty finger nails* and outright crooks.

That's a lot better than the United Nations definition, why did I not think of that.

The Chinese certainly think so-'No longer any kind of big country but merely a country of old Europe, suitable for tourism and overseas study'.That's 'The Global Times', the Communist Party's official newspaper. If they say it the political bosses think it.
And that's an opinion that matters a lot in the future.

Re: Nelson Mandela

I just wonder, now that Mandela's calming influence has gone, how long before the ANC(which has some rather unsavory people in it) decides they don't need to be a 'Rainbow Nation' any more. The lot of the bulk of its voters hasn't improved much and they know it, freedom doesn't buy food and land. Zimbabwe's extreme solutions may begin to have more and more appeal.

Re: Nelson Mandela

Did anyone see the funky sign language man on stage with all the dignitaries yesterday? He looked like he was translating with attitude. It has just been on BBC News that he was a fake, he was actually stood next to Obama at one point. Bit of an embarrassment for the organisers. Gave me a laugh though.

Quite possibly because it is still tribal and the Xhosa are the majority, but people still live in hope. I think you have got it in one.

In a nutshell, Twill all kick off big time within 18 months of the ANC being elected i think.
