1. Legislation (laws) doesn't control people's behaviour, people do. 2. if we had laws that made your friends somewhat responsible for your actions, you'd have no friends pretty quick!

i could be going out on a limb here , but crashes do happen to any one , 20 years is in some ways almost a death sentence .but at the same time 3 people were killed . were his friends not also guilty letting him drive drunk or the bar he was at . just a silly idea that people under a certain age should be legislated to have noddy type electric cars or very small petrol cars like the tuc tucs we see being used as delivery vehicles . just an ides

20 years for accidental deaths? And Oscar get 6 years for murder? Hmm, makes me wonder...

Dit maak nie sin nie: "According to Arrive Alive, where reckless drivers are incorrectly prosecuted for murder after killing innocent road users, “the likelihood of appealing the conviction and sentencing succeeding in this case is remote.”

I went to the Afrikaans school at the bottom of the hill on which Boys High is situated. I would like to know what the Lord Hain's opinion is about the lawlessness in South Africa. Over 50 Murders every day, a women being raped every 5 seconds, a child of 5 being raped? Are you only interested in the money or are the people of South Africa more important?

I would recommend that you read Anthea Jefferey's book "The People's War" to see the inherently vile, deceptive and violent ethos that became more apparent now. The mask has slipped!

For those that accuse Peter Hain. You are missing the point. He may be a hypocrite because he stood against the apartheid government. Does this mean he should now just keep quiet. In this moment in time 2017 he is challenging the current government. The sad reality is that for many of those in the anc they actually feel they can steal as much as they want. Being in government gives them this right. And no matter what you say about ethics, morals or laws, in there minds it makes no difference. Being in government means you are the boss, but what they fail to accept is that they work for us, the people of South Africa. Even if they are caught red handed they will not feel any kind of guilt. They are immune from any prosecution.

See my comment above - the ANC of those days was totally unlike the vile ANC we endure today.

The ANC of those days was a completely different organisation, operating in secret. Don't confuse that ANC with the corrupt and vile ANC of today ...

While Hain is a useful tool in addressing the theft of funds from SA and also the prosecution of the offenders, he was a supporter of a violent, corrupt ANC. The same ANC that protects Zuma wherever it can. His socialist and "Remainer" backgrounds speak volumes.

Peter Hain informed me most emphatically in 2000, both in writing and verbally, that there was no evidence of BAE corruption in the arms deal. And before that he equally emphatically declared that there was nothing wrong in Britain peddling weapons to post-apartheid South Africa. Affidavits from the British Serious Fraud Office and the Scorpions detail how and why BAE paid bribes of 115 million pounds to secure the BAE and Saab contracts with South Africa, to whom the bribes were paid, and which bank accounts in SA and overseas were credited. If Hain is now so keen to clean up corruption in SA, how about starting with the British government which holds the controlling "golden share" in BAE? With the British government having guaranteed the BAE and Saab contracts and their offsets, we can make a start with cancelling the 20 year Barclays Bank loan agreements and compensation for the non-delivery of US$8.7 billion (R122 billion) in NIP and DIP offsets.

Touche', but don't hold your breath there is more blood on his hands than what meets the eye! I remember all these commies back in the 50's & 60's who sucked up to the Russians, et al. As usual the "#SA Cowards" all got their money out of South Africa when they took the "chicken run". Another aspect which the world never hears about, is why don't we ever see a black Russian? Strange isn't it!

Absolutely. Hain is being a gross hypocrite here. He helped bring the ANC to power, and now wants to pretend he wasn't warned what would happen.

As much as Hain's actions now are to be lauded, we need to keep in mind his culpability in bringing this completely corrupt regime to power in SA. With it's racist BBBEE laws the ANC has the blood of thousands of farmers on it's hands, often murdered after indescribable torture. If he has any success at least get the money to OUTA, who fight the good fight against corruption on a daily basis. Otherwise it'll just be recycled to the same crooks!

Germans need to stop accusing Germans of being Nazis, and using Nazi tactics. Only then will they develop some pride in who they are, enough to save themselves and their country, against their fifth columnists.

The correct way to combat transfer pricing is to lower one's corporate tax rate so that it is lower than the receiving zone.

"THE WORLD IS MADE UP FOR THE MOST PART OF FOOLS AND KNAVES." - To Mr Clifford, on his Humane Reason. Duke G V Buckingham (1628-87) English politician. "While a financial novice in a smart suit mouthed away in Parliament yesterday, I couldn’t help thinking how some multinationals will be licking their lips at the easy pickings now available in South Africa." Spot on on both points. Alec! As always. I salute you, I couldn't have said it better. "a financial novice in a smart suit mouthed away in Parliament" - Hell yes, but I think the "financial novice" part is giving Gigaba far too much credit, its being kind to the man, a euphemistic handle for IDIOT. It boggles the mind that the arch-idiot, the Laughing Hyena, good ole JZ, saw it fit to replace a man of Gordhan's stature, expertise, experience, wisdom, and International recognition, with a fool, a knave, in a fake Pilot's uniform. But then we all know why. The Treasury now belongs to the Zuma clan and the Gupta's. Their man is firmly at the helm; that its a fast sinking ship is of little concern, as long as they can get the remaining cargo safely off the ship. That the gullible Captain is going to go down with the ship, of even less importance to the Puppet Masters. "in a smart suit mouthed away in Parliament"- Well said, Alec. Thank the Lord he left his SAA Pilot's uniform at home. Smart suit, yes. He can afford it, we're paying for it. "mouthed away" - Precisely, a pre-programmed little automaton reciting what the programmer put in his miniature brain. It must have been Greek to Gigaba. But he had to look his best for the TV cameras. Mouthing away hot air about the mismanagement of the SOE's - but what has he done about it? Other than handing out rescue packages which will soon be gorged and the increasing losses piled on the taxpayer's shoulders, whilst the perpetrators live like Kings at the public's expense. " I couldn’t help thinking how some multinationals will be licking their lips at the easy pickings now available in South Africa." - Exactly! I sincerely doubt whether Gigaba, if challenged, and asked what is "transfer pricing", would be able to give a meaningful answer. He'd probably tell you, whilst scratching his SAA Captain's Cap, "Aisch! Its taking a price sticker from the one packet to put on another packet. Easy! You transfer the price. See?" Whilst unscrupulous (most of them are) multinationals siphon off billions of Rands of profits made at the expense of our struggling economy. Happily engaged, unchallenged, in serious transfer pricing whilst Gigaba, clueless, minds the store for his Masters. Truth is, when Zuma saw it fit to replace Gordhan with this Joker who knows absolutely zilch about Finance and international trading, South Africa lost a sterling Minister of Finance who was busily engaged in trying to salvage the wreck Zuma and his pals created. Unfortunately, Zuma hasn't replaced the outgoing Gordhan yet, the position is still vacant. What about Gigaba? Isn't he the Minister of Finance? NO! He's a proven Gupta lackey, a mere figurehead. A false front. We DON"T have a Minister of Finance competently looking after the Treasury and the other important tasks allotted to him. Instead we have an ignoramus carefully told what to say, what noises to make, what ineffective actions to take to make it APPEAR as if SA has a capable Minister of Finance (I'd love to be a fly on the wall if Gigaba, heaven forbid, is ever engaged in an impromptu debate with real, genuine Financiers) while the behind-the-scenes looting of the Treasury is silently taking place. Alec's closing line, "If you thought education was expensive, try ignorance." is so very apt. Gigaba's absolute ignorance, lack of genuine insight, and of course the fact that he's "captured", all spell bad news for our economy, the people, and the country. Thanks to the ZUPTOIDS we're about to be downgraded once again. The massive shortfall on the Medium Term Budget has to come from somewhere, but after Gigaba's pathetic speech methinks International investors and financiers are stampeding at the exits. Where our "esteemed" "Minister" of Finance is going to source the money from is anybody's guess. Maybe he could try, like a good magician, to pull a Bunny from his Captain's hat. The present state of our economy is fraught with serious, potentially disastrous pitfalls. Rampant inflation, lack of disposable income, wholesale job losses, falling company turnovers and profits, runaway poverty, outrageously increasing crime, severe lack of service delivery, a crumbling nation-wide infrastructure, ridiculous public sector wages, municipal bankruptcies, crippling drought, sickening farm murders, and money-guzzling SOE's run by corrupt, inefficient, unqualified Zuma snouters, and a nearly negative growth rate, to name but a few, all impact on the economy. These factors all have to be taken into consideration when preparing a budget, a task even the inimitable Gordhan will find extremely difficult at present. How the Zuptoids expect Gigaba, of all people, to even try to comprehend this, never mind do something constructive to remedy it, is a mystery. But then, they don't want him to do something about it, he's only there till they've successfully stolen the last cent out of the ailing economy's coffers. AND THE BAND PLAYS ON! AISCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
