For Jan the first a Really Awful Rhyme
Was meant to indicate that it was time –
Or such had been my definite decision –
To see the year with Twenty Twenty Vision!

Over an entire month blogging has become impossible. When I have the time and opportunity, I don’t have internet. When there is internet plus time and opportunity, there is a power-out due to load shedding.

After being without a phone for weeks, it was finally fixed on Friday. Guess what. Today (2nd) it is down again.

The current government is the most useless waste of air and rations ever to exist. They have managed to destroy a perfectly good power utility, a smoothly-operating railway and airline, a reliable telephone service, and a well-running public service and health administration. In their place is anarchy, wanton destruction by those who appear to suffer under the delusion that the way to gain something is to destroy it, and absurdity piled upon absurdity.

In fact, the only thing that the present regime is any good at is forming working committees, holding summits and discussion groups, and generally to exacerbate the current heatwave by generating lots of hot air. Conclusions or solutions don’t happen.

    Your nation inherited a sound infrastructure. It’s a pity that those in power can’t deliver the same.

    It’s a world gone mad, without a doubt.

    Sadly, although at a different rate, it seems to be the path the world is on.

    The resultant frustration anxiety and stress are why I refuse to follow any SA ”news”.
