Good morning all,
Knysna Wine Festival gets a new home. Mark Willemse remains defiant. The world’s top golfers have gone soft – not every course should be set up for their convenience.
Gaming disease now a pathological disorder – when will we stop excusing a lack of self-control, or is this just psychologists trying to justify their existence after some pretty damning statements from within their own ranks.
Merkel seems to refuse to recognise the ‘new’ reality.
SA makes strides with the rollout of a new product for drug-resistant TB. As the dam levels in the Western Cape rise, so does the chance of the ANC capturing the Western Cape fall. But then, they can’t even hold provincial congresses without chaos. The new Public Protector faces new accusations from the DA.
China still hasn’t come to terms with the fact that Trump is the president of America and is not there for their convenience. Eskom and Numsa try again.
Rassie stays one step ahead of Eddie Jones. The SABC will publish the report on the Willemse-Mallett spat – even thought Willemse apparently never testified – I wonder what that means? Kevin Anderson is at No. 8 in the world. Speaking about No. 8’s, Warren Whitely [and Malcolm Marx] have been declared fit. But, how do you take the captaincy away from Siya Kolisi, and how do you take the No. 8 jersey away from Duane Vermeulen? Marx, on the other hand, should be a shoe-in – he’s still the best No. 2 in the world – no apologies to Codie Taylor and Dan Coles.
