Re: #Official Defence Thread

Mr Xenophon has stated he wants to see the details of the contract. Now I understand Mr Xenophon wants to make sure all to details are legit, but I would much prefer he spent his time spruiking a better deal for SA rather than pick holes in the work of others. I mean, what was the last multi billio...

Re: SA Economy

Don't despair Waewick. Maybe an immortality pill will soon be invented. I've got my fingers crossed for us :-) if not then c'est la vie as they say...

An excellent outcome for SA.

The intent was that they would perform a similar role to what you are talking about. Wasn't living in the country at the time so am a little hazy on the details sorry. ...
