Good morning all..

This Monday Morning Edition is sponsored by South Cape Net.

Southern Spoor who handle the marketing for Oubaai, turns 20.  NSRI put out safety tips for the holidays.

The latest George Golf Club Newsletter.

The Dems laugh off all amendments to the coup hearings.  Schiff’s ‘evidence’ is as weak as the Dems’ candidates.  Russia meddles on America’s doorstep.  These ‘impeachment’ hearings are merely galvanizing Trump’s support base.  Johnson regrets not delivering Brexit – and the Tories will pay the price at the polls. 

Icasa introduces new broadband spectrum.  Government prepares to pull out of the ICC – the ICC is rotten to the core, but it’s still a sad day.  ANC W Cape says they’re rebuilding the branches – let’s hope this is the case – every democracy needs a good opposition.  Not sure who is supporting the NHI. 

Seems Trump has bent the Fed.  SA gets a reprieve from Moodys.  Markets look at manufacturing numbers this week.

Springboks win big over the weekend – World Champions, Coach of the Year, Team of the Year and Pieter-Steph is Player of the Year.  Newlands to be demolished – a sad end to a sorry tale of mismanagement.  Brad Binder wins in Malaysia.  Francois Louw bows out in style.
