To English viewers, the ANC Government of South Africa has passed a bill protecting sensitive state information, making it illegal for journalists to publish.

You need to decide whether this was bad drafting, or intentional. We South Africans instinctively know the answer to this. Photographs follow...

I have been over zealous with political comment lately so have now accepted the offer to assemble and write for two blogs on the WatchingUK website. The "Good News" blog is for items where we have benefited from the Brexit referendum vote and the "Bad News" blog is where others have tried to damage our chances of leaving the EU.
