I PROPOSE to begin this submission with Sowetan correspondent Redi Direko's conclusion in her November 6 column headlined "Show Boesak the door: ANC must not take back this opportunist".
In that column Direko suggests that because of Allan Boesak's lack of conscience and his hopping from one political party to another, the ANC must not waste its precious time but show him the door. Direko raises valid points.
But politics is not about conscience. It is about dirty tricks, hence some call it poli-tricks. It is about lies, double-speak, duplicity, corruption, theft, sex, sleaze, intrigue, egoism and everything bad one can think of.
It is a cesspool. Does Direko think the ANC has a conscience? It is a fact that Boesak shouldn't jump off the sinking Cope ship but rather help prevent the ship from sinking.
A report leaked to one of the newspapers revealed that the ANC's dirty tricks department at Luthuli House was hatching a plot to "destroy Cope".
The ANC and its alliance partners have not made it a secret that they want to supplant the DA in Western Cape.
The ANC and the SACP have for 30 years in exile fought to destroy the PAC. Exactly what it is now doing with Cope.
The problem with the likes of Direko is that they are not consistent. While they decry the dirty tricks campaign against Cope, they think dirty tricks against the PAC is fair.
Dirty tricks by the African National Corruption against anyone should be condemned.
