Friday Morning Edition

Good morning all,


The community is coming together to restore the environment.  Wessa Newsletter.  Dangerous items found at an illegal dumpsite in Pacaltsdorp.  The George water situation looks even better than it did a week ago.  Go George makes smart cards more accessible.  Mossel Bay Municipality addressing complaints of foul odours.  De Krans & Boplaas continue to rake in the accolades.  All the latest news from Plett Tourism.

CSA announces fixtures for the season.  KFC and Cricket South Africa officially kick off KFC Mini-Cricket Provincial Seminars.  The latest George & Pinnacle Point Golf Club Newsletters.

Here are some things the world will shortly realize:  It’s not about Trump.  It’s never been about Trump.  If you’re fixated on his character, you’ve fallen for the misdirection and you’re watching the wrong movie.  The Clintons are a crime syndicate.  The Bidens are a crime syndicate.  Obama knew everything.  The Deep State is surrounded – the bleating you hear from them now is just the final squeals from a dying dinosaur.  The social media companies have been doing the Q’s bidding for the last 18 months.  No-one has died of COVID-19.  The is a beautiful new world just around the corner.

Ramaphosa rehashes an old plan – a bad plan – that has never been implemented despite having been around for decades.  The depth of the ANC’s cadre deployment has been revealed.

Investors are clearly not impressed by the ANC’s economic recovery plan – it’s bad and it will never be implemented.  Have we got to a point that’s it’s pointless to budget because there’s no money in any case?

Will the ‘Boks go to Australia – personally, I hope not.  Seems the England cricket tour is one.  Liverpool take on a resurgent Everton this weekend.
