drive safely drive

Well, its the middle of the holiday season. Even our politicians have joined our holiday obsessed society and gone on leave. The result is a distinct lack of cartoon worthy news stories. Having just demolished a couple of slices of chocolate pie, hit on this idea of trying to support the efforts to get drivers to buckle up over the Christmas period. Already we have road fatalities of over 900 this season in South Africa and we're only halfway through the season!

the grinch speaks

The old political game - blame someone else so that the dumb voters are distracted and don't see what's happening behind the scenes. The Lord giveth and the government takes away!

public watch dog

When is the public protector not the public protector? Obviously she is choosing her battles. Thank goodness for the national editor's forum and Right2Know for keeping vigilant against the theft of our precious press freedom. And we thought you had teeth, madame protector.

The politics of losers. Stupid egotistical bastards trying to outdo each other in a race for power while the country suffers. Political scum.

in poor taste

The story was about TV cameras set up at Nelson Mandela's country home by news services, including Reuters, in anticipation of his passing away. Some say illegal but definitely in poor taste. Well, this is the cartoon comment I submitted that was deemed as, you guessed it, in poor taste. I respect my editor's veto powers and subsequently did a watered down version of the concept. I thought I would place the concept drawing here so you can judge for yourself. Political correctness and humour are in the eye of the reader. I thought it was funny.

proxy fight

Interesting times as the ANC eats itself. From the people at branch level to provincial leaders to those at the top who manipulate instead of lead. The level of hate and violence and murder is frightening, and this is amongst so-called "comrades'!

Boy, was my face red!

It seems as if there's a trend appearing. Our president's special appointments appear to have the annoying habit of blowing up in his face. We told you that cadre deployment doesn't work!

hot air

What's the single biggest source of climate warming gases - you guessed it - political hot air!

Flat out

Is this a case of (steam)rolling out service delivery or is it about levelling the political playing fields?

Finish and klaar?

Well, I tried not to be unkind to a sick man but I think karma works sometimes.

security blanket

Zuma appoints Willem Heath as the head of the Special Investigations Unit. His securocrat defence continues but with the imminent disappearance of another Zuma appointee, Menzi Simelane, it looks like an increasingly "shaiky" gambit.
