      Because such things never happened in the 70's and 80's?

      How do you know it's not two white Captains? Infact, do you know anything about the crash, as this story doesn't actually tell one anything. People who make such stupid comments with out facts more often than not end up making fools of them selfs.

    Terrible reporting. It really gives so little info that one wonders if the story is even worth reporting on. What tipe of tour boats was it? Big ones or little harbour tour boats? How many passengers where there on the boats? How badly was the boats damaged? Any eye witness accounts? From what boat companies where they? And so on.

      Did you miss the bit about: "Exact details and the cause of the accident will remain subject to a police investigation," she said." So unless the reporter had a tip-off that an accident was about to happen, all they can do is get the story from an official source.

      Stirer - really? So if the article read "Two people got shot in Pretoria - police are investigating" - this will be enough for you...? You are happy with this "low class" reporting, I am NOT. Flowerfourie in below comment, summed it up perfectly: "So what's the point in writing a sentence about this if you have no idea what happened?" - 2012-12-23 22:12

      If their spelling and grammar were anything like yours, then there would be an even bigger problem.
