Media

Every week we reach hundreds of thousands of people through placing arguments in the media in support of the principles we stand for.

"Banging the racist drum" DA-style - Politicsweb

11 February 2019 - As has been said in other contexts, the cover-up can sometimes be worse than the original offence. This applies to the DA's statements about its own role in the infamous attack on the honourable Ms Barkhuizen and her school. Worse than the party's rush to judgement, is its leader's misrepresentation of what its officials actually did.

B-BBEE: The DA again surrenders to the ANC - IRR

11 February 2019 - This past weekend, the DA’s Federal Council determined to shut down any debate on empowerment, choosing instead to adopt the ANC’s model of Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE), and the mantra that “race is a proxy for disadvantage” as a justification for its position.

ANC-vyandskap jeens Weste is onheilspellend - Netwerk24

10 February 2019 - Die ANC en die regering skryf en sê presies wat hulle glo. Hulle is werklik vyandiggesind teenoor Westerse demokrasieë – ‘n nuttige teken dat geen ware hervorming in die regerende party plaasvind nie, en ‘n tydige waarskuwing oor wat dié party eendag dalk bereid kan wees om hier te doen.

Letter: Little satisfaction on land issue - Financial Mail

EWC and your pension - The Witness

7 February 2019 - Based on present performance, mandating pension payments into SOEs would amount to EWC of a special kind: the expropriation of opportunities and the destruction of value. The benefits – such as they are – would go to feed the state and its ideological convictions. The costs would be borne by ordinary people trying to provide for their futures.
