Anglo Boer Hostilities break out (by Email this time)
ANGLO BOER SKIRMISHES: A crude and miss-directed email from the leader of the DA in the National Assembly found its way directly into the in-box of the very person whom he described (in caps) as "an IDIOT" and a Nazi while advising its intended recipient how to (very coarsely) deal with said person. Athol Trollip re-sparked ancient Anglo Boer rivalries when responding to a legitimate question tabled by the Afrikaans speaking representative of the Tax-Payer’s Union, Jaap Kelder. Despite his apology, Trollip's boorish missive threatens to erase any goodwill gained when Afrikaners contributed en mass to the historically English party's impressive growth in the recent local elections. The matter has been referred to the Equality Court, where the pious DA had previously rejoiced in seeing ANC members being hauled over the coals for similar acts of hate speech.
