Gareth is intelligent, talented and articulate. He should be the ANCYL leader. Oh he is white so that will never happen. The truth hurts does it not you ANC failures and drop outs. How is a perceived rapist and corrupt individual, a polygamist, an uneducated person such as Zuma going to have an intelligent debate. Even a 10 year old will tie him up in knots. Get real and stop thinking with your emotions or one would think you do not have brains to think with.

About time someone STOOD UP and let the govt KNOW what the perception we have of them DOWN ON THE GROUND! People ARE seriously cheesed off that there has been NO CHANGE in the past 17 years, things only got WORSE!

Last time I heard, all and sundry currently IN GOVT were NOT ROYALTY! They were elected to SERVE the people of SA, ALL CLOLOURS, not a select few that are CONNECTED to Govt... the TENDER WINNERS!

Am waiting to see or hear of the govt's response to this letter... if there will be one. Am not holding my breath!

If you turn a blind eye to crime, then you condone it and thereby become an accomplice.

If you incite murder you are as much a murderer as the poor uneducated fool you revved up to do the dirty for you.

By the ANC appealing the Kill the boer judgment they have shown us all who the real farm murderers are.

Their intent having been made so clear they should expect that people will defend themselves.

Why wait for the ANC to pull the trigger when they are already so white-knuckled about it.

Brutally honest...

#14 Good Job G

2010-10-25 10:16

Good letter, but because he is a whitey it probably won't get far. His last comment about a revolution might even be seen by the Government as a Threat to plan some sort of military action.

It won't surprise me if they even try to charge Gareth with some sort of bogus charge in order for him to be locked up for a night in our luxurious prisons, where the inmates will try to make him a "bitch".

None the less, good letter Gareth, lets hope you gain support for this and maybe you can be the one who makes Julius your "Garden Boy" seeing as he is only educated enough to do garden work.

Mr President, please remember, your people (ANC SACP) voted you in.
Our people (South Africa) will vote you OUT!!
You are not every ones Hero, Sir!

#16 Great stuff!

2010-10-25 10:30

Well written, to the point, covering most areas of the failures of the Government and showing the education lacking in the general population of children nowadays, apart from the corruption which needed to be addressed so desperately - now we need a harsh letter regarding the crime rate...what the Government will do to clamp down on that problem and other areas..... go for it Gareth, if you continue at this rate, you might just make a difference.

#17 why?

2010-10-25 11:05

Its disgusting that we need to sign something like this just to get some hope for the future of this country. I'm at a stage where I think all our government members should be shot and replaced with monkeys - who I believe will do a better job.

Baie waar, dit is hoe meeste van ons Afrikaners voel. Net een party word bevoordeel en die ander deel moet net betaal! Skeer almal onder dieselfde kam!

#21 Thank you, Gareth Cliff

He is saying what everyone is thinking, but don't all have the power or the medium to be able to communicate our concerns or yet even the fact that it might not be take seriously !!!!

The right time to do the right thing is now - soon there will be no time left, for people who put you into government are slowly but surely seeing your real colors and attitude. To be elected brings more responsibility than you probably had bargained for, or are capable to handle. Put the right people in the right places(not the right colour people in all the right places), in order to be successful and to prosper. Admit that you are a total failure, that BEE is not working, that young students did not live under apartheid and should therefore be granted equal opportunities in life, that quotas in sport(only some sports) is discriminating and harmful. Also admit that you are discriminating against white people in this country(reserved job opportunities, quotas is some sport, BEE, and the list can go on and on and on.....) and that you are therefore racist and none better that apartheid. Admit this and countless other instances where you are failing those that has put you in power in our country, then get off your backsides and do what is right - and that is to serve this country and it's people, for that is what you were elected for. But hurry, for the time to do the right thing is running out! God bless in this endevour for the brave and the real heroes.

#25 The right stuff

2010-10-25 13:42

Somebody needed to tell these pillocks (Government) what we are all thinking. Enough is enough if they think we are prepared to live in total chaos, they are mistaken, our new leaders will emerge from this mess and if there is half a chance of them doing better than the current Government the will get my vote, mine and everybody I know black, white, brown whatever their race, color or creed we will take our country back to being successful.
