Mr Gore, make Vitality Politics. For every job you create, you get 4 Discovery Miles. Lower taxes, 100 Discovery Miles.

Political assassinations/irregular tender: lose 500 Vitality points, and no more earning back your spend at Woolies.

So..nothing on what these "number of pressing issues" are?

You didn't think it important to ask him, @BusinessTech or Staff Writer?

Was it necessary to ask? What's he going to tell us that we don't already know?

Edit: Also, he did actually mention unemployment, inequality, and poverty. None of which is new.

No need to make excuses for dog-shiit journalism, mate.

See my edit. He did mention some issues. Still, struggling to understand how this is bad journalism, or how a question would have provided any useful information.

Must be nice to be a CEO and tell other people your opinion...

Come back when you're unemployed!

Parroting what was said into an article isn't journalism. A reasonably mediocre secretary can do the same.

I don't disagree, but if you're after quality journalism, you're looking in the wrong place.

What an ass, we're not a businesses looking for opportunities, we're people trying to survive a hostile or at least incompetent government.

Easy to say not so bad if you have other backups hey.

He did. All those issues is not even worth mentioning. Two of them cannot be fixed (You will always have poverty and inequality in any country. You need to make peace with that and find the best solution to live with it). The third one can, but unfortunately not under a socialist government.

unemployment, inequality and poverty.

So, basically, he just confirmed that SA is doomed, which we all already know.

So if someone’s positive about South Africa they must be getting government kickbacks or rich..?
