What has floor-crossing achieved?
They are asking this question on the After 8 debate on SAFM this morning: what has the floor-crossing archieved?
Do they really have to ask?
We all know what it has achieved:
- voter apathy
- the replacement of “the people shall govern” by “the politicians shall govern”
- government of the people, by the politicians, for the politicians
- a banana republic
The last is based on the similarity between politicians and a bunch of bananas – they are all yellow, they hang together, and there’s not a straight one among them.
As long as the constitutional court allows crosstitution, South Africa will not be a democracy.
