Professor Edward Webster is a Professor of Sociology and the Director of the Sociology of Work Unit at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa. His current research interests include: the Evolving Labour Relations System in South Africa, Labour Market Segmentation and the impact of Deep Level Gold Mining on the occupational culture of miners.

He is a founder of the South African Labour Bulletin, was a member of the review committee on Labour Market Commission, 1996, and is currently secretary of the Research Committee on Labour Movements for the International Sociological Association. He was awarded a Fulbright Senior African Researcher Award in 1995 at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

He says the Minister of Labour should intervene to stop the outsourcing of labour - poepol, let people do what is in their best interest, as long as they do not use force.

He is proposing the use of force to achieve some social objective. We should refrain from doing it - The Apartheid Government did it, Nazi Germany did it, Muslim extremists do it.

We do not do it in Liberal Democracies. Society, Work and Development Institute (SWOP)

"For the love of the game"

Poepolle, almal wat meegewerk het om hierdie kak slogan uit te dink en tot vervelens toe op SABC/RSG uit te saai.

Judge Motata

“Richard Baird, who runs a consultancy, told the court yesterday that Motata said, “f**k you” and, pointing at him , said, “f**k the white guy” several times when confronted at the scene of the accident on January 6 .”

His blood sample was kept at room temperature for 6 weeks (while being fast tracked!)and may have caused more alcohol to have formed - No ways 4X the legal limit I would argue...

Be that as it may - the SA public should say - admit guilt and we would consider that you may stay within the legal profession (NOT as a judge) or drag your case out, waste time, bring the judiciary in disrepute and NEVER enter a court again other than a defendant in your next crime.

You are a poepol and the prosecution and support team share the honour...
