Parties mum on running mates – who cares?
Have you noticed how if there is not any political news worth writing about (although lately it has not been worth reading anyway), the newspapers just write about how all the political parties in the country are mum on who will be the presidential running mates in May 2009! I mean really, even if we cared would it not be too early to start being told who those people would be.
The US goes to the polls in four months time and we don’t know the running mates yet. South Africa goes the polls a month ahead of us and I have not seen any fuss about who will partner JZ or Hellen Zille or any of the other party leaders. They are really making a fuss for nothing.
Tell us about the stock market next time there is nothing to write home about, it may just get us interesting in buying papers once again.
