Quote of the week

Now you cannot understand anything about fascist doctrine if you do not understand that their central claim was that liberalism is antidemocratic; in other words, the fascists claimed that liberal institutions cannot represent the will of the people. They further claimed that their typical institutions, particularly the party, were more effective means to represent the will of the people. So fascists were “authoritarian democrats.”

What’s going to happen now with that diary?

I see there was a coup d’etat in Mauritius. Wonder where that leaves the NPA request for the diary that shows Mr. Jacob Zuma met with arms dealers who allegedly paid him a bribe? Mr. Zuma’s appeal on that matter is still pending in the Mauritius courts. If I was a conspiracy theorist – which I am not – I would wonder about the timing of this coup and whether it has anything to do with a plot against the NPA!

UPDATE: Eish! I am obviously so obsessed with the Zuma matter that in my haste between appointments I read Mauritius for Mauritania! So no plot against the NPA then.
