Making the news today....

South Africa is an interesting case. They have the benefit of what's left of the colonial era infrastructure, and abundant natural resources, including a fantastic climate, tourism etc, but in terms of organisational ability, it's poor to nil. Still better than other parts of Africa though. Civilisation, (as we understand it) leaving aside the moral debate of who's in charge - is a fragile thing.

 

Good thing Britain has contingency plans if things go belly up in South Africa.

There's a plan to bring up to one million south Africans to Britain if things turn really sour over there...

 

meanwhile Gibraltar's in the news,, Spain will be given a veto over the status of the place during Brexit negotiations..

 

Putting the cat amount the pigeons springs to mind...

Just an aside, why do Sky News think that anyone gives a toss about the simplistic and agonisingly poorly articulated views of Kriss Akabussi? how did he get to be a news reviewer?
