A Monstr-house-ity Grows …


After all the pruning I did, there is an eddy-fuss growing on the edge of the slope designed to block out more of our view including a large chunk of what I cleared. It will probably obliterate another section of the sea when completed. There are supposed to be building and height restrictions along the coastline, but as we discovered in our previous home these are easily overcome. Invoking them is simply outweighed by some judicious bribery and corruption.

There have only been a couple of isolated cases recently where really blatant transgressions have been halted and reversed. These have involved enormous cost and effort on the part of the complainants. They are a tiny speck compared with the blot that most transgressions make.

Laws in South Africa are increasingly things to be got around or broken.

  1. Well you will live in the colonies, so you have no one to blame but yourself, I told you that you should move to that other colony a bit to the East of where you are now and slightly lower down 😈

    It’s frustrating for them who follow rules that they can be so easily circumvented by them who don’t feel like it.
