Dear Helen the Confuser

30 January 2014, 11:58

Dear Helen Z

I am confused? First Marthinus v S decides to join with Tony Leon without asking the People and now you jump this on me? The People were upset then, and I for one would have liked if this felt less like a surprise.

Me, myself and I had no idea that the DA was planning this move. I am now disappointed Helen because my understanding of the DA’s modus operandi is a bit unstable. I expected a bit more transparency and forewarning if something so radical is jumped on a Party five months from the election.

I don’t know... You might have lost my vote. That vote will probably go down the river now, but this was not a smart move. I am not talking about the candidate in question, but the approach and way this event occurred.  It is a common fact in life that it is not what you say, but HOW you say it. Even the candidates OWN party is confused. This is confusing. I am confused.

My thinking would be that this is a time when you want to emphasize stability and conviction of beliefs that is so desperately needed in this country. This does not influence only one individual, it has a real impact on a group of people. 

I hope I am the only one that has these feelings… I truly do.
