Liberal institution, only liberals need to donate.

@Asitis I went to UCT back when it was a classically liberal institution. Classic liberalism is good, right? I am sure conservatives would support this? However things have changed and from what my sources tell me, it has abandoned reason for a mixture of workery, Marxism and the like. I would not donate a cent to UCT as it is today. Can you explain your thoughts? Have a good day!

The SA Titanic: where and how to find hull leak-plugs.

Time for San Parks’ Table Mountain Reserve to be handed over to Provincial authorities.

San Parks is a national (ANC) incompetence.

Wait a bit Boet. Now you are talking c_ _P.

No, not at all. SAN Parks is milking the cash cows (Kruger/Table Mountain etc) but not maintaining them. This is National and that means ANC incompetence.

Why do they want to rebuild it?
