     My View

Kanna Awards announced.  The national bus strike is over – much-relieved commuters across the country I’m sure – including George.

Alan Winde opens the new cycle route which includes the Garden Route.

All hell breaks loose as the US moves its embassy to Jerusalem – and now the Democrats go ballistic about something they punted for years, but never had the guts to do.  The EU taunts Britain over Brexit.  I can’t blame the US for blocking the Gaza inquiry – it would be a kangaroo court in any case.

If there was any doubt as to whose side the ANC government is on – that’s all gone now.  I suspect that the DA is in for a clubbing in court today.

Rob Davies would do well to remember that Trump is the president of the USA and not South Africa.  Gordhan continues his clean up of the SOE’s.

The Protea women complete a whitewash of Bangladesh – very impressive!  SA football fans lick their lips at the prospect of seeing Messi, Saurez and co. display their skills here.
