MEET THE NEW BOSS -SAME AS THE OLD BOSS…

Between 7 and 18* striking South African miners have been gunned down at the Marikana platinum mine by the SA police today- They were striking for higher wages from the mining company Lonmin ( 4 Grosvenor Place
London SW1X 7YL ), and struggling to free themselves from the (ANC supporting) National Union of Miners, since  they have failed to represent rank and file workers (surprise, surprise).  The SA NUM, as the countries most powerful union has a long history with the ANC in the struggle against Apartheid.

Armed and militant.

One time NUM leader and Marxist ‘comrade’ Cyril Ramaphosa went on to join the post-apartheid ANC government and then to become a millionaire businessman, with investments in the Resources Sector, Energy Sector, Real Estate, Banking, Insurance, and Telecoms…and non-executive directorships with Macsteel Holdings, Alexander Forbes, Standard Bank and SABMiller, plus he a member of the Coca-Cola International Advisory Board as well as the Unilever Africa Advisory Council…

The ANC is well known for its corruption and its utter failure to honour the promises it made as a resistance movement to the South African working class – See how the conditions for those working for Western multinationals haven’t improved, or how the grinding poverty the townships still exists. To the Sharpville and Soweto massacres, we now add Marikana…

Just goes to show, you can never trust politicians, least of all those leftists, marxists, socialists and social democrats who claim to have the interests of the working class at heart- they are lying, self-serving cunts, all of them…

As for Lonmin, it says this on their website, as part of their ‘mission statement’-

Employee Self-Worth- To enhance the quality of life for our employees and their families and promote self esteem.’
*Update: 34 dead, 78 injured.

THE RICH ARE OUR MISFORTUNE.

    Try telling anyone that Mandela isn’t some sort of quasi-divine figure, though
    Him and Gandhi, eh?

    • Funnily enough I was going to mention ‘Saint Nelson Mandela’ but then my inner whiny liberal popped up, wagging his finger, for fear of mentioning the ex-terrorist, corporate arse-licker -oops! That’s torn it. Good job we’re not talking about his horrendous ex-wife, the child-killer Winnie…

        She’s a safe(r) topic to discuss in polite comapny. But retreat to the bunker when Nelson (and the ‘acceptable’ face of racism, Prince Phillip) die, cos it’s gonna be wall to wall hand wringing and bullshit

        I wonder what the townships think of Nelson’s huge mansion?

    Just after Tony Blair & New Labour got into power in 97 someone stuck around a dozen different stickers up in two main roads round here. All but one were ripped down in a week. That one survived for more than a month. Perhaps it was the message. It just read:
    NEW LABOUR?
    NEW BASTARDS!
