Greedy politicians loot government coffers

2011-02-12 14:26

Rustenburg - A political report tabled at the provincial ANC conference of the North West has painted the province as being run by greedy politicians looting government coffers.

Tabling the report at the conference in Rustenburg the convenor of the provincial task team Martin Sebakwane said state machinery was held hostage and captured by one group at provincial level and another group at local government level.

"State resources were directed to municipal wards which had councillors who were part of the factions," he said, adding that councillors who were not part of the factions were not allocated service delivery projects in their wards.

He said budgeted funds were paid out fraudulently and distributed to leader of factions.

"Such funds were used to strengthen their function by buying in more loyal foot soldiers to further dislocate and paralyse the state machinery as well as the machinery of the ANC in the province."


Sebakwane said this led to lack of service delivery and triggered frustrated and depressed communities to go into service delivery protests.

The report further indicated that money was preferred over political ideology.

Sebakwane said conferences were reduced to political stock exchanges where those with money could choose their preferred leaders whether they were inside or outside the ANC.

He said seats were created with various prices with the top five being the most expensive followed by the additional members seats.

Sebakwane said those with money were not concerned with the quality of the leadership but were interested in investing in pawns they could handle to maximise return on their investment through access to financial opportunities in government.

"Once their pawns have become ANC decision-makers they direct the work of government into the hands of their masters."

He said there had been a tendency where people were going around carrying refuse bags full of money looking for delegates to vote for their preferred candidates.

    Jip. No wonder more than half of the 287(?) ANC run councils are labelled dysfunctional. But its up to the piepols to change that. They all have at least one vote.

      Kyle_logan - 2011-02-12 14:59

      VM1 - you know what a stupid comment that is, these people are stealing money that should be used to help the people, that includes you you twit!

      Hans-Erik Iken - 2011-02-12 15:51

      The reason they are now talking about it openly is bacause they are losing votes in the poles. It should not surprise the ANC top brass that this is happening in the North West, afterall they are setting the example in Pretoria themselves.

      zenboer - 2011-02-12 16:09

      VM1 - your probably one of the corrupt. Please post your address so the service delivery protesters know where to find you.

      theoldmanofthemountains - 2011-02-12 16:22

      @VM1: we would, but the freeway is in such a state of disrepair that it can hardly be called a freeway.

      Dan - 2011-02-12 21:34

      @ Hans-Erik Iken. No Hans, you are missing the point and you don't understand how the ANC works. This happens in all municipalities/districts/provinces. The ANC is full of factions, all waiting their turn to rule or get their dirty hands on the loot. It is their way of getting rid of the factions currently in power. It is a strategic game and happens all over. Mpumalanga is probably the best example. Remember, the ANC is not a party as we refer to it, they are a "movement" with no morals, no ethics and no standards.

      Logs01 - 2011-02-14 10:04

      As I said, the ANC is busy "self-destructing", cracking up from inside. Watch this space, it will happen more and more even though they try to "hide" it best they can. You can "control" a bunch of greedy savages only for so long while they "feed", till their ever growing "greed" turns them against each other AND their followers "wake-up".

      Paul - 2011-02-14 12:37

      Test my logic. We are told that violent crime is linked to poverty. Then we are told that the ANC is stealing money needed to fight poverty. Is this orginisation therefore not responsible for violent crime in Rustenburg?

  • Matt - 2011-02-12 14:39

    We all know this but the millions of people in the villages over the hills don't. That's the problem. They vote just on colour and not on merit because most don't know the facts. Anyone with access to a news paper and can read it seriously has a huge mental problem if they vote ANC. Those who vote ANC knowing all the facts are just racist and corrupt as those in government!

      Kyle_logan - 2011-02-12 14:58

      VM1 - well in that case it seems you dont get to vote.... since your an idiot not a man...

      Matt - 2011-02-12 15:03

      @VM1 - that's so stupid. They stealing from us all - black, white...Why would you vote for thieves. Our country would be better with the DA in charge. The results speak for themselves. Its not a case of who is better than who (black or whote). Its what is better for the whole country. If the ANC were doing a good job then fine - but - be honest - they suck. If Zuma cant see the crime issue then there is a real problem - the list is endless and you know it.

      Matt - 2011-02-12 15:10

      @VM1 - you are a real big idiot. Well - when crime comes knocking on your door and your kids/wife/mother/sister get raped and murdered then please think back to this day and let it haunt you for the rest of your life!

      Macho Mike - 2011-02-12 15:16

      VM1 - Remember your mental comments the day you stand with rocks in your hands to throw at the African National Circus Clowns. Egypt and Tunisia should serve as examples to the ANC Clowns that when the masses roll, their heads will roll.

      Benny66 - 2011-02-12 15:18

      VM1. You're quite right, of course, in your rather racist comments. But doesn't that just reinforce the comment that you are an idiot and therefor you and those you vote into power will NEVER be a success? Of course, there is always the chance that YOU are one of those voted into power and busy creaming the country? If so, and whilst you are following your corrupt practises keep in mind these two sayings: "What goes around, comes around" and " every dog gets his day".

      JCTF - 2011-02-12 15:24

      VM1 is proof that there is problem with basic intelligence in this country.

      ligte - 2011-02-12 15:31

      @VM1 "I cannot waste my vote on a 10% party with no IMPACT". What impact? Please explain

      Kyle_logan - 2011-02-12 15:31

      VM1 - Dude seriously if you dont want to be called an idiot dont act like one... if you managed to give me a fat lip, you'd end up in hopital.

      hawksnr - 2011-02-12 15:44

      At least now we know that 80% of the population have the same mentality than this 'VM1" fellow, hence the ripple effect in our gov departments, local gov and every other thing they touch. And this is not a racist comment, but a fact...... look around you!!!

      lldoidge - 2011-02-12 16:00

      VM1. Which is a 10% party? Don't know any party that got 10%.

      madrynn - 2011-02-12 16:03

      "...I cannot waste my vote on a 10% party with no impact - One man One Vote" So it is better to waste your vote on a 90% party with no impact? Maybe we need to just disband all parties as is... and start voting on issues raised by literally faceless or unknown politicians. Else im just gonna see your black butt "winning" and you see my white one "trying to oppress", where actually we are both just trying to lead our lives unhindered.. Get your heads out of your asses people.

      theoldmanofthemountains - 2011-02-12 16:28

      @VM, your headman called. He asked that you please return ASAP - the village is missing it's idiot.

      Madelane - 2011-02-12 16:54 are a very sad misguided individual.....tragic really as your type of mindset is driving this country down the road of total collapse.....witness Zimbabwe, once a net exporter of food and now a totally ruined country.....very sad.

      @VM1. Please don't blame my forefathers for your fat lips. Its actually a genetic trait. Troll.

      Snoopy88 - 2011-02-14 11:42

      The poor just don't care... After all its not their money that's being wasted. It is but they don't see it that way. They have more faith in this corrupt government than anything you could say to them. For example, I got into a discussion with an elderly black lady about the service she gets at the local clinic. No she doesn't mind waiting all day just to be handed some panados because its free and she should be grateful. I say, 'But you do realise its not free, someone - we - we're paying for it?' She says 'No its free.' No matter how I tried to explain to her about direct and indirect taxation, which she contributes to, she couldn't move past the basic belief that it was for free.

  • Monica - 2011-02-12 14:47

    The ANC that runs our country is a buch of criminals and should all be locked up! Time to vote for another party guys! Lets all go and vote; black; white; indian; chinese; I call the other race malay; all of us stand together and vote for DA as they are still running a good WP; tired of the crime; the rape of innocent peope; bad schooling for children; high rates; high electricty and water accounts, mistakes being made because of incompetance; the whole of ANC is incompetant!

      Mr.Glum - 2011-02-12 15:50

      sparking - 2011-02-13 08:55

      You go girl. Carry on voting for the DA and make sure that the whites remain a majority in the DA. Please stop pestering us with this patronizing statements about the DA being the best. Did it ever occur to you that the majority of the ANC/ZUMA bashers are MF's that experienced the joy of being labelled the superior race in South Africa. They now misses that and because they are now treated equally as the erstwhile denizens, cries foul and because they do not have the balls to go even up to the point of sacrifising their lives to end the status quo,as blacks did, decided that they are going to try to effect regime change through irritating us with this petty heel snapping comments

      DW - 2011-02-14 09:11

      @ sparking - quite honestly, the people who "experience the joy of being labelled the superior race in South Africa..." etc who make these ridiculous anti-black comments on these forums are NOT DA supporters and will not vote for the DA. They will vote for FF or not vote at all. Please dont mix up the 2. DA supporters are not anti black. They are anti ANC. There is a difference.

      JCTF - 2011-02-14 09:56

      sparking: Our preference for the DA has nothing to do with race. I don't care if the DA was run in its entirety by black people. Once again you bring out the race card when it has no relevance. The DA is thousands of times more organized than the ANC, face the facts. Who cares what colour these people are? If the DA was entirely black and the ANC entirely white, and they were both being run as they are at the moment, we would have exactly the same complaints.

  • Albert - 2011-02-12 14:51

      Zinki - 2011-02-12 15:32

      That's true. It's normally hidden from the public. Greedy fat cats raping the state coffers and the ignorant still vote for them because they are kept uneducated and uninformed and brainwashed, especially just before and election.

  • Louis - 2011-02-12 15:02

    Might as well get used to the country being run this way. I'm just glad I live in Cape Town which is run by the DA. I don't care if all the informal settlements are without water & electricity, education, or food, for that matter! They must go ask their "mommies" and "daddies" in parliament, whom they serve, to take care of them!! People who can't see anything wrong with the picture of the current state of affairs in this country are either too scared that apartheid will return when the ANC loses grip on the country, or they are racists and vote for the ANC because they are predominantly a black party! I am happy for my black colleagues who have jobs and can experience what it's like to be "middle class", but the real problem is between the shack-dwellers and the almighty honorable members of parliament with their pomp and greedy snobbishness, not between me and the ANC. It's good to see black people complain about corruption in government, especially when they see the effects of it, eg. non-delivery. It shows that democracy still lives.

      Doug - 2011-02-12 15:19

      Well said, couldn't have put it better myself!

      Circuswatch - 2011-02-12 15:37

      What do you mean "apartheid will return"? Apartheid just means living seperately, in this context with a race connotation. What has changed in the last 17 years? Probably only 1% of blacks live in places like Sandton, the rest are still in squatter camps. Apartheid is alive and well.

      lmduplessis - 2011-02-12 16:16

      Apparently VM1 is a prime example of your 2nd catagory, louis. Too bad i don't really care. Keep the cape in DA hands, let the rest rot and die, thats what they want.

  • Doug - 2011-02-12 15:18

  • kilo39 - 2011-02-12 15:18

    Jacob Zuma and the ANC leadership must take responsibility for what their cadres are doing to the fiscas. They are quick to pat themselves on the back with things like a higher matric pass rate (even though this pass rate averages about 35% which in itself is disgusting) but the silence is deafening when 'their comrades' steal from the poor. This must be construed as a tacit approval of what is going on. Zuma himself has become a man of many words and no action. Who is pulling his strings?....makes me want to 'shaik' him around until he shows some common sense. Mr President, I challenge you to purge the ANC of these common crooks and good luck with what you will have left. Up for the challenge ? I thought not!

      DW - 2011-02-14 10:03

      If JZ purged the ANC of these common crooks, he would have to purge it of himself...remember, he got out of going to court when he, himself, was involved in corruption.

  • zpm5402 - 2011-02-12 15:37

    @VM1. You are as stupid and arogant as the party you vote for. I surely hope that you are the next victim of crime, that you drown in a pothole and your service delivery stop in such a way that you have to sleep in your own shit! Further more I hope that you will become the next hijacking statistic. You will keep on voting with your brains(those that you sit on!)until there is nothing left in this country. Where will you then go to? Zimbabwe? Namibia and Botswana (also run by black people) wont be so stupid to let you in!! Maybe you are one that already drives a BLACK BMW or MERC pair for with taxpayers money.

      lmduplessis - 2011-02-12 16:21

      Leave him be and let him die in his shack with no food, water and suffering from aids. Apparently it's what he wants. Having your own race suffer and die of it's own corruption is better than being led by an efficient form of goverment that sends you to HELL.

      theoldmanofthemountains - 2011-02-12 16:39

      @VM1 - thanks, but we have enough of your brain-dead brethren here in the WC. We don't want anymore leeches. Rather stay where you are and enjoy the lack of service delivery in your own neck of the woods. P.S. Did you read my comment about your headman calling about you? He asked us to send you back - the village is missing it's idiot. I had to repeat that, because you and your ilk need it repeated over and over again.

      Kyle_logan - 2011-02-12 20:49

      VM1 - you keep saying one man one vote but your an idiot not a man.... come on idiot... BTW anytime any place I'll call you an idiot face to face.... he it rhymes... lol but seriously... anytime face to face... and if you think you can give me a fat lip after I call you an idiot go for it.... but after that you'l land up in one of two places... hospital or the morgue...

      Kyle_logan - 2011-02-12 20:55

  • Nuusleser24 - 2011-02-12 15:44

    What the ANC doesn't realise is that sooner or later this stealing is going to backfire politically. The people are going to wake up and vote against them. They probably realise this, and that is why they are stealing at such a rate, because it is not going to last.

    The ANC is not only losing its way at the North West, this situation is happening at local, provincial and national level. Infighting and greed is going to destroy not only the ANC but our country. Is North West the tip of the iceberg? Once again, all this happening in the JZ Administration. Fraud, corruption, nepotism will continue because not action will be taken.

      lmduplessis - 2011-02-12 16:22

  • Jimmy - 2011-02-12 16:09

    Those responsible for the corruption that has been identified would be charged and tried for corruption and for flouting the Public Finance Management Act, if the ANC were serious about fighting corruption. If the ANC does nothing, it would indicate their tacit approval for what has been going on. Supporting a party that tacitly approves of corruption would indicate your approval of corruption. One can't approve of corruption on the one hand and then complain about a lack of service delivery on the other. Nor can you complain when taxpayers start to evade tax because they are tired of seeing their money squandered.

      DW - 2011-02-14 10:09

      Never mind tacit approval. The ANC actively approves. When someone gets exposed in these types of tactics the ANC at best simply appoints them to a new post somewhere else. They never, ever get held to account, charged and sentenced (unless of course they form part of a faction that the ruling party is trying to supress ala Thabo Mbeki and his cronies)

    Democratically elected leaders are reflections of the masses that voted them in and corruption throughout Africa is ingrained in the culture and people who deny this never traveled through Africa so you can be sure this will continue in Africa. A black friend of mine told me that he would be very wary in trying to bribe a white cop but no problem with a black cop so what does that say? I have always been told by my black friends how unselfish black people are and in many ways this seem to be true however as soon as most get power they will screw their fellow countryman, black or white, like you won't believe. The whole concept of being a good steward of other peoples belongings (tax money) simply pass them by completely. I've been in many African countries and I am anxiously waiting to find one that can prove me wrong.

    Wow, the comments on this forum are just shocking. Racism is alive in all its shapes and forms. Unfortunately, no surprises in any of these comments. There's always at least one halfwit like VM1 spouting verbal crap, and a dozen others who then attack him when they should be ignoring him. It's not his fault that he confuses his IQ with his shoe size. He's just naturally dim. As for the corruption in the North West, why the surprise and outrage? We all moan and groan, and yet we never seem to do more than that. As for educating the uninformed masses that keep voring the ANC in to power? A bit difficult to do when the ANC ensures that the divide between the haves and the havenots remains unchanged if not wider.

  • itumeleng.mosiane - 2011-02-12 17:35

    I always thought that 702 talk radio was racist, but this platform is worse. I knw of good white people who are doing their best to build this country. You guys are the worst, you must go back to europe because u r very rude visitors. White people looted and they are still looting by paying blacks peanuts and complain about crime. Stand up and do something about. You are even afraid to reveal your real identities. We will rule until you die of complaining.

      Tjaart - 2011-02-12 17:46

      Actually, this is my real name. I agree that there are many - white, black, indian, colored, etc - who do fantastic jobs trying to improve this country of ours. It's just a shame that they are in the minority. The comment about us "whites" being rude European visitors would seem to indicate that you yourself are a bit of a racist, and your post started of so well...By the way, am I still a rude European visitor if I was born in this country, was too young to have an informed opinion of "Apartheid" when in was in place, and then watched as year on year crime and poverty became worse and worse without any of the Utopian promises made by Mbeki or Zuma being forfilled? Neither you or I can blame the majority of whites and blacks for their racist views when the younger generations from the time of change should know better and yet do no more than perpetuate the sad, prejudiced views of our fathers.

      Madelane - 2011-02-12 17:48

      Get over yourself Itumeleng....every time there is any criticism of the dishonesty of government officials one hears this cry of racism. It is really very trying. Governments and politicians around the world are corrupt by their very nature. In the UK two MP's where found guilty of fiddling their parliamentary allowances and they are both now in jail What happens here.....NOTHING as these parliamentarians are still sitting there. THAT is what everyone complains about and it has nothing to do with race so as I said get over yourself and stand up and be counted as a human who can think things through and understand the greed of this bunch in power.

      Tjaart - 2011-02-12 17:55

      So tired of hearing things like "paying blacks peanuts". You're not greedy. You just like a lot? And in your reality, if people don't get paid enough that's creative licence to steal? Oops... I mean... "loot coffers"? Equal pay for equal work is no longer a mantra limited to gender equality. It is now definitely a race thing too. In my experience (as a sample of 1) unfortunately people of any of the other races are earning more than me in exactly the same job title and with less experience. Some will say...Oh thats payback. Righting the wrongs of the past. Unfortunately, for me, and my very much South African born daughter, we had nothing to do with the wrongs of the past, but the "sins of the fathters" are definitely making us pay. Dearly. In the figurative and literal sense of the word. And Im not complaining. Just saying.

      OK,Itumeleng, I dont object to blacks ruling the country. But why dont you change the system and elect blacks who are competent, dedicated and honest??

      shaunandroweena - 2011-02-14 15:08

      @Madelane, i beg to differ. it may seem as though people are speaking out about these corrupt politicians and the fact that they are still in office after committing such offences but the undertone and gross generalisations in the comments are fed by racist rhetoric. can you honestly state that you have not racially profiled any single person?

  • Big Mouth - 2011-02-12 17:45

    Well now you know why we complain.

  • JudithNkwe - 2011-02-12 17:53

    This might explain why people working to solve water problems have been unable to make any progress

  • Worldwise - 2011-02-12 18:02

    Guys, VM1 and Themantshepo are trolls winding you up. This part of the article is true though - "The report further indicated that money was preferred over political ideology." The ANC never wanted to liberate the people, that was the excuse. Their aim was the liberation of the national treasury.

  • R.Suppards - 2011-02-12 18:27

    If Martin Sebakwane's statements are true, he should contact Zuma's hotline, or the Public Protector. He has a duty as a loyal South African, as opposed to being an ANC footsoldier, to protect his and our country from this ongoing rape

  • Dundermoose - 2011-02-12 19:48

    Curruption thy name is ANC!!!

  • maseratifitt - 2011-02-12 20:01

    But just this morning I read that Gwede Mantashe said that the Northwest was "the best" . I think I understand now what he meant.

      lmduplessis - 2011-02-13 00:16

      The best money mine available for the ANC

  • lotus.lindi - 2011-02-12 21:07

    This isn't news. Wish it were.

  • Dan - 2011-02-12 21:20

    WoW. It happens in all spheres of government, especally parliament. Nothing new.

  • Kevin Rack - 2011-02-13 00:20

    Stealing from the poor to feed the greedy corrupt ANC elite. Only a cadre can justify stealing from the poor because of aparthied. Cadres cannot take any responsibility for any assanations of fellow memebrs or theft but blame others. Sounds like Mugabe to me. I suppose we will have 46 years of this before we are even.

  • Mark - 2011-02-13 00:34

    VM1 my friend how's it man? What does VM1 stand for? Let me guess: V for very, M for moronic ape and numero 1 for king of the very moronic apes. If you have the misfortune to be black please do me a favour and get rid of any white inventions like your cell phones, TV sets, fax machines,fridges, microwaves, washing machines, cars, motorbikes, planes, helicopters, satellite communication, rockets, DStv, banking, financial instruments, electricity, radios, calculators, laser technology, computers, the internet, facebook, computer software and anything that relates to civilisation and I can go on and on till Judgement Day and please go back to the stone age if you want true and total transformation. If you are white then embrace the amazing white technology and inventions and please stop instigating your white brothers. As for me your comments make me laugh my head off. If you are black just remember that you are dealing with a special and unique race that managed to make a spacecraft that put their own people on the Moon in July 1969. We can do the same with you and blast you off to Mars and you will never ever come back to Earth as it will resemble the place where you come from. If you are white we will send you to Mars but we will make sure that you come back to Earth in one piece. Have a wonderful day!!.

    Break your neck in a pothole !

      VM1 - 2011-02-13 08:01

      Yawn ! ! ! ! ! ! !

      lean - 2011-02-13 08:37

      Oh do not bather braking his neck, believe you me it's not worth it.. Soon he would have to kill himself,the guy lives in an emotionally frustrated, sad and angry Depression Haven...What a wonderful life he have.loL)))

      Pink_Polony - 2011-02-14 13:34

      VM1 - ie Very Malignant One, Read this, read it again, slowly, then read it again, very, very, very, slowly. Then get one of your kids to read it, very, very, very, very, slowly to you and explain all of it, very, very, very, very, very, slowly to you – as they are the ones who will be living like the people in (eg) Chad (check the 2nd link) if you- and your obtuse comrades keep voting for the ANC...

  • Chillepeppa - 2011-02-13 07:45

    I'm sorry, I'm confused now. How are any of you guys dissing VM1 any better than him? You all seem equally immature to me. He has a right to use his vote as he sees fit, just as everyone else does. I don't agree with how he is doing it, but to resort to primary school playground name calling is just silly. One man = one vote. How you use or abuse that right is all up to the individual. I am opposed to the ANC, because of how they are mismanaging our country. And the best way to show my disapproval is with my vote, and not by slandering their supporters online...

    Thats the African way folks!!

  • Boerseun - 2011-02-13 09:27

    Daar is dit nou weer" Die ANC erken hul lorrupsie, diefstal en politieke omkopery. Natuurlik sal die stemvee dit ignoreer en nog steeds vir hulle stem. Eendag sal hulle egter idiote genoem word deur hul eie nageslag en dis ook reg so.

      Natsumi - 2011-02-14 07:18

      Stemvee... hihihihi...

  • Jacques - 2011-02-13 09:42

    Intersting times. When you look at a map of south Africa with colour codes based on where people vote for which parties: You clearly see the DA as majority in the WC. Interesting thing is you see the same trends in NC and Gauteng. I wouldnt be surprised if in this election the DA wins the NC and Gauteng as well. They are close to winning those provinces as well. Here's to hoping. The ANC is definitely on the back foot in these provinces. Everybody needs to vote this coming local elections. Cant wait to see the results mid year.

  • Mark - 2011-02-13 09:53

    VM1, VM1 how's it my friend, did I piss you off? Agh shame. Black people mugged me and shot me but I'm sorry to disappoint you as I'm still alive. I've got struck by lightning several times, in actual fact I've lost count already!!. Black people tried to hang me but they were unable to make a proper knot and they were too cheap to buy a decent rope!. I tried to explain to them how to make a correct knot and to buy a stronger rope but they were too dumb to understand. By the way they were all BEE and AA. Please my brother don't pretend to be black when you are white. Come on don't instigate in raising the blood pressure of your white brothers. Please join us, be part of our club and please don't be naughty in pretending to be black when you're not!!!. Have a super and wonderful day my white friend and enjoy the rugby and the biltong. Remember there is enough time to come out of confused state of mind!!. Again have peace of mind and enjoy this amazing white technology which is the internet and the computer!!!!!.

  • KlipinnieBos - 2011-02-13 10:45

    You see, they WILL destroy this country in time like the rest of Africa. The problem is only that it will take a little longer, because here is more to destroy!

  • Bulelani - 2011-02-13 12:13

    You said you are happy that you stay in cpt where whites are 1st class cityzen

      honky - 2011-02-14 08:21

      Bulelani, just answer one question. Would you like to live somewhere, ewhere things like municipal services work? If so, the would you are what the skin colour of your mayor is? As soon as a place is managed properly, racism disappears.

      emmamimie - 2011-02-14 11:27

      No Bulelani, everyone in CT is first class, you only have to see that you are one. WE have a great problem in the Western Cape aswell as the country, cleanliness cost nothing and its about time all our people realised this and started living like humanbeings should.Remember being white is actully a disability in this country just like you were 20 years ago, so stop using the racial card and pick yourself up and become a first class citizen if it mens so much to you.

  • Stofbolletji - 2011-02-13 12:18

    The only sthing the ANC has done for South Africa since 1994 is build a few new stadiums with the white man's money.

  • AllHoliday - 2011-02-13 13:09

    If they know it, why are there no arrests made??? This is just a new plan to get votes..lets tell the people what they already know and prentend that we made the 'discovery' and promise change. The only thing that will change is the names of the next lot of 'greedy politicians'. They do not want the people to be educated, as long as they are uneducated they can get the votes - why else do they lower the standard all the time. It is time that the poor let them know that they cannot live on promises!
