If people are losing jobs and the economy might be headed down the privvy, then who is going to pay for these grants? I mean, which taxpayers will be contributing to these fancy little income grants that these folks expect?
I am talking about the looting incident in Durban. Yea, apparently a bunch of people from South African Unemployed People's Movement dashed into the supermart and starting helping themselves to food.
I didn't even know we had such a movement. On that note, I would have picked a slightly less militant name.
Did you notice Mike Sutcliffe's comment?
Quote from IOL:
"There seems to be political element in this - it's true they handed in a memorandum last week and we know there is a lot unemployment and poverty, but they are not the poorest of the poor, which is why we feel there are other elements involved. (The) government is looking into it and will deal with this accordingly."
What did he mean by 'not the poorest of the poor'? Kind of worrying, isn't it?
Especially since this happened after the foreign shops were ransacked recently?
