Mandela legacy

I HAVE never met Councillor Ray Davies but I know that he wears a red beret. It’s good to see by his letter in this paper that he has done a lot for anti-apartheid, he even sang on top of Caerphilly mountain. Mandela was a good, forgiving man but he died before he could lead his people out of shanty-town poverty. I hope Ray, your singing on the mountain wasn’t in vain.

Listening to the black South Africans on Dimbleby’s Question Time, I think they will be looking towards the clenched fist of Winnie Mandela and Robert Mugabe. I hope I’m wrong, for the white South Africans sake.

RSA is now at level-6 (out of a possible 8) on the genocide scale when it comes to black on white murders. The only reason that it hadn't yet gone to level-8 was down to Nelson being alive.
Very bad times ahead for the whites who made RSA a country en par with European countries and has been declining steadily since '94 when the ANC took over the country from the whites.
Now RSA is as corrupt and backwards as the rest of the continent.

A lot of the wealthy and educated white population are leaving and taking their money out. Malta is one destination for them because of climate and ease of obtaining visas if you can demonstrate that you can support yourself financially.
