    Spare a thought for the homeless people. Shame I feel for them with this on the way.

      They should get into the property market... one must build up a portfolio and always pay cash, for cars, yachts, houses and planes.

      alansmartSnr - 2012-06-24 18:03

      .. I really didn't want to go political with this but blame the poor homeless and hungry ones on these ANC thieves who have stolen so much and which could have altered most of these poor people's live after almost 20 years robbing them of a decent and safe life.

  • robin.stobbs.9 - 2012-06-24 11:03

    And here in the Eastern Cape (G'town) the actual temp outside is 14 but with this cold, damp wind the chill factor must be somewhere around MINUS 14! It sure is the coldest I've felt this winter. Yuk!!

  • hein.helmand - 2012-06-24 11:21

    Rather late than never

  • sakkiem - 2012-06-24 11:53

      phillys.winterbottom - 2012-06-24 16:27

      Or racism.

  • sanjay.monsingh - 2012-06-24 12:28

    and people complain of global warming!!!!!!

      alansmartSnr - 2012-06-24 18:11

      ..Most scientific papers consider the term "Global Warning" as inapropriate. The proper discription is "Climate Change". Just saying.

  • Henry - 2012-06-24 13:10

    'tis winter anyway. Let the nature take it's course. 1 thing I pray 4; The squatters, I wish dat they could keep warm safely and between those shacks, there should be some space and the ways 4 emergency services to gain acces, in case there's an emergency. Everybody, keep warm

      stefan.vanderspuy - 2012-06-25 09:31

      You can donate a blanket. That's what I'm gonna do.

    Dress warmly, have some that famous "fortified anti-freeze" (sherry) and some hot soup, garlic and citrus fruits. Also make sure your beloved pets are kept warm too.

  • sally.lewitt - 2012-06-25 23:27

    My thoughts turn to the street children, elderly, homeless, poorest of the poor with thread bear blankets and clothes and no hot water.. Stay warm! And of course of four legged friends..

  • mark.govender.94 - 2012-06-26 14:20
