We dont have to be "raciasts" to know that the ANC has done NOTHING but get rich whilst the poor get poorer...we NEVER had so MUCH corruption in the "apartheid regime" So what was the struggle for? The fat cats? BMW and Mercedes have never done so well with there sales in this country!

Hatton is taliking alot of crap she serves her boss Helen Zille very well. I was there and watch how the Law enforcement first became violent, tell her to get out her comfort zone and to come and see how the people live in Mitchells plain. she is that typicall white NAtionalist who will help helen Zille to keep Cape Town for the white people.
