Forget about expensive German sedans, our parliamentarians have discovered a new form of transport to suit the size of their egos. Why drive when you can use the SAAF VIP squadron to ferry you about, even if it means flying an empty plane to fetch you. After all, the taxpayer foots the bill - a cool R79 million.
This is a silly local story about a woman who was bringing her child back from having an operation in Cape Town, using the provincial ambulance service. The only problem was she decided to transport a whole load of booze with her, marked "patient baggage". Methinks she was confusing service delivery with delivery service!
Everybody wants to be in the driving seat but they still manage to be all over the place. As the Talking Heads sang "we're on the road to nowhere....". Now you know why driving in the Eastern Cape is fraught with chaos.

In my free time I create collage, collect ephemera and all sorts of interesting but valueless stuff and am a somewhat erratic mail artist.
