According to the Mail & Guardian Nov 25th : DA unsure of fracking stance - The DA is to debate its stance on fracking in the Karoo as a resolution supporting the process has been passed without following correct procedures.

Seems the DA has been too busy Toy Toying in Nkandla and has not had the time to do proper research into Fracking. While the rest of the world is banning it due to environmental and health hazards, our backward South Africans are jumping on the Corporate Shell bandwagon. As just one example on Fracking, there are plenty of other informed sites and news articles on the Net, see :
What Is Fracking and Why Should It Be Banned? -
And even if the Pro-Frackers "wax on wax off "about environmental rehabilitation and other mining interests agree now to environmental rehabilitation, there is yet another little trick that the world of Corporate Control has up it's deceitful little sleeve. We could soon find ourselves under pressure to sign the The Trans-Pacific Partnership ,which basically means, these corporations can sue the government for loss of income due to legislation that requires environmental rehabilitation, AND includes the nullification of all previous agreements. . . I kid you not! So watch out Richards Bay and Mtunzini, all those promises of rehabilitation might just be a load of hot air to appease you! See:

TPP: NAFTA on steroids?
Which brings me to the E Toll rip off. Zille was prepared to Toy Toy with COSATU on the Gauteng E Toll, but has been remarkably silent on the Chapman's Peak Toll. So who in the DA has a vested interest in Chapman's? As always I guess it is a case of follow the money and see who benefits. Which has recently revealed the criminality and daylight robbery of two culprits, Austrian company Kapsch and Tolplan boss Willie Pienaar .See:

The DA has also been remarkably silent on the Labelling of Genetically Modified Foods. I have not seen one statement from them in support of this..... unless I missed it somewhere.... in which case my apologies, however I have seen lots of tweets about riding bicycles, and dancing in Kwa Zulu Natal! Is there anyone on the pay roll of Monsanto in the DA? Or in fact any other member of Parliament? While other countries around the world such as Russia, Hungry, India and Peru are banning genetically modified seeds, our seemingly uninformed political representatives remain silent on the criminality of the patenting of South Africa's food resources by alien, external parasites and the detrimental health effects of GM which causes cancer, amongst other diabolically, eugenics-prone diseases.
And yes the real question here: ..........is the DA a party representative of the people of this country and our environmental and health welfare...... or is the DA, like the Republicans and Democrats in the USA and the European Union, mere puppets of a "hidden shadow " government comprising of Corporations and Bankers who dictate to Parliament? In fact, not only the DA, but every other parliamentary member, and political party?
Perhaps someone could also give me an answer as to why exactly, South Africa and the South African government is listed on the New York Stock exchange? Is our country in fact a "Corporation"like the USA? And owned and controlled by a shadow government comprising of banks and Corporations that we are not aware of? I would really like an answer to this question and for somebody to clear this up. Since when is a country and a government listed on a foreign, NOG AL! stock exchange? And why?
And yes , the DA, the ANC , in fact all of them are all on very shaky ground. The Arms Deal, the patenting of our food resources now owned by alien corporates, the E Toll, the back handers on Nuclear Power Stations, when cheaper, cleaner none corporate controlled alternatives are available. All to the benefit of a small group of Oligarchs while us "Debt slaves" have to pay to line their pockets! Not exactly the New South Africa we were all sold, ... now is it?
If you want to know what I am talking about with a "shadow government"see the Documentary :
How to Steal from an African -
And if you want to see how Banks and Corporations now control the European Union, basically a Fascist conglomerate, flying in the face of the voters views, aspirations and opinions , see Nigel Farage's "barages" at the EU parliament :
Nigel Farage destroys Barroso's State of the Union
Is this what our leaders, who we not only entrust with our government but pay to take care of our best interest with OUR tax money has in store for us? Please let us know... ..because if it is, we will end up debt slaves like Greece and owned by Banks and Corporations, in which case South Africans need to stand up now and do something about it before it is too late.
