Dion George, Federal Finance Chair for the Democratic Alliance (DA), has falsely claimed that “If the ANC takes control of the town, it is a direct consequence of the actions of former councillor Willemse and councillor Myers. This is Willemse’s legacy and we will fix it.”
That wins the DUMBEST DEMOCRATIC ALLIANCE QUOTE OF 2019.
It was the DA’s response to the Cape Time’s regarding their never-ending crisis in Knysna. The latest episode is a High Court battle to remove their own mayor, Mark Willemse.
As I’ve previously reported (in depth), the DA’ s intent on protecting its leadership from being held responsible for the corruption its involved in. An internal faction loyal to Premier Alan Winde and MEC Local Government Anton Bredell will happily destroy the town to gain back control… which is impossible whilst rebel local DA councillors, supported by the Public, have shown them the middle finger.
- The Knysna DA, although in charge, was ordered by Cape Town to assume the position of opposition party (anything the DA says to that would be the 2nd dumbest quote).
- DA politicians were ordered to walk out of Council during a crucial vote which resulted in the unopposed election of the ANC into the Deputy Mayor and Speaker positions.
- The DA then revokes their DA Mayor’s membership, seemingly illegally and with grossly insufficient reason, forcing legal action. Without a Mayor that left the ANC Deputy Mayor in charge who composed a Mayoral Committee.
Dion George is the Constituency representative for Knysna. He isn’t local but it seems more important to the DA ‘Leadership’ that he’s their buddy, their Federal Finance Chair. He’s obviously a clever man but to issue easily dismissable propaganda is so ridiculous that I shall henceforth refer to him as DUMB DION. Maybe numbers rather than words are his talent.
‘Dumb Dion’ is too kind a nickname for him ignoring the crime I reported to him, and for his refusal to accept responsibility. The DA’s “good governance” claim is shallow marketing. The DA only cares about itself, and those who work for it only believe in their salaries. None are representatives of the Public. It’s simply a political con game.
Helen Zille’s DA screwed Knysna for years. The people she left in charge continued screwing whilst she was briefly away. Now Helen Zille’s DA (Version #2) is doing the same thing.
Corruption is the common thread. All involved are nothing more than criminals. If this were a past century, they’d have been hanged for their betrayal of us.'Same Shit, Different Government' pdf (1810 downloads)
