Friday Morning Edition

Good morning all,


Congratulations to Fancourt!  Great news of another gas find off Mossel Bay.  

Christo Lamprecht will be playing in the SA Open.  The latest George & Pinnacle Point Golf Club Newsletters.

All that matters now is the US elections, and Trump is killing it.  The economy has come roaring back.  Unemployment claims are lower than expected.  Over 30% of Blacks are voting for Trump (it was around 6% in 2016).  Biden is going down, and the Big Tech & the MSM have shown their true colours to the American people.  I’m working on an article on “How Trump won the hearts of Americans”.  He has created a seismic shift in US politics – and it has worked spectacularly.  Dr Fauci is still dreaming of masks – let it go already – you’ve made yourself irrelevant.

Seems the ANC is in no hurry to do these lifestyle audits – have to cover their tracks first.  Ramaphosa wants to take on the taxi industry – he had better be prepared for war.

COVID fears drive the JSE down – or is it just traders setting themselves up for a scoop again.  The SAA debacle continues as the ANC remains in lala-land.  The state wants to freeze public sector wages – they had better be prepared for war.  

Chennai through to the playoffs.  All Blacks look to win in Australia.  The Aussies throw the youngsters in at the deep end.  Interim CSA Board to be announced on Friday – don’t be surprised to see Sam Ramsamy or a few of his minions in the mix.
