The Parlotones Art Exhibition

So I’m always first to hear about their new albums or their concerts or special features and I am always the first to buy their wine when Woolworths stocks up.  This time round they have something extra special for you all.

Zuma Is Lying To His Voters

Toiletgate – Malema And Hofmeyer Can Learn From Dinosaurs

If you’re old enough, you may remember a show on M-Net in the early 90’s called, Dinosaurs.

The ANC Has 1600 Unenclosed Toilets – Malema Does Nothing

This has just been waiting to come out. I knew that once the DA had been accused of being racist in not enclosing toilets, the ANC would end up with something hitting the fan. For months, the ANC kicked up a stink over open toilets in the Western Cape – now it appears the ruling […]

Cape Town Adventurer Ray Chaplin To Conquer The World
