     My View

Eden DM goes paperless – and should save millions.  Timeshare making a comeback – let’s hope they do it right this time.  Braam van Huysteen wants his company back. 

SWD Eagles go down to the Boland Cavaliers – eish – things were beginning to look up after a dismal 2017 season.

North Korea and China falling in line.  May asks Britain to trust her, but after the position she took on the Iran deal, I would be hesitant to trust her on anything.  Facebook gets reigned in in Europe.

The de Lille saga continues and it’s hurting the DA.  Looks like SAA got another bailout – this time under the table – guess the ANC needs campaign funds.  Ramaphosa’s move to send Dlamini-Zuma into the North West is a master-stroke.  It’s a no-win situation for her and may well pave the way for her shafting.

Hamilton wins in Spain, but then the Montmelo circuit suits Mercedes better than most.  Ireland battle back after a first innings demolition.
