Absolutely fscking bizarre shyte...
These are like old Soviet jokes:
Work at a 'tractor factory, but when you steal the parts and take them home, they always look like a rocket launcher...

Are those summer T-shirts? No they keep you warm in winter...

Edit: And who buys summer clothes in winter anyway? Will the Level 4 list change in September?

I know this has been posted somewhere before but it seems to be a timely reminder to these clowns.
For those on Twitter please send the original to the entire NCCC's twitter accounts on my behalf.

Winston Churchill: 3rd February 1949

If you destroy a free market you create a black market.
If you make 10,000 regulations you destroy all respect for the law

WTF:

The rest of the list is equally arcane and bizarre...


So what exactly are they not allowed to sell??

Also car sales gazetted:

(d) Logistics for the wholesale distribution of cars across South Africa,
subject to the following:
(i) movement of cars under own power to be permitted from Port of
arrival to an approved storage facility provided vehicles moved do
not exceed batches of 10 at a time;
OMG. 10.

I sincerely hope that they will remember their social distancing! Can't have those brand-new cars catching the virus, now can we?

WTAF? :rolleyes:

Do you think you will now be fined or thrown in jail when you get cought in possession of a t-shirt that is not SPECIFICALLY marked as undergarment for warmth?

Alternatively will they confiscate this off you???

You mean as a shop owner? Probably. Easy to get around though. Basically they are banning the sale of swimwear and flip flops.

****ing insanity, WTF are these idiots doing? Businesses closing, jobs bleeding, people starving, people getting beaten to death by cops and sandf, and these brain dead tits are sitting on conference calls debating whether flops should be sold or not

No sorry, that was an attempt at sarcasm.

First sale of booze and cigarettes was banned, then they started confiscating them from cars.

My question was, will the cops take the t-shirt off you at the roadblock, considering it is a "banned substance'

Something is very wrong with this whole system if you actually need to gazette what clothes people can and can’t buy at any given time.
Couldn't get underwear at one point, at the beginning couldn't get any clothes which was pathetic, now you can't get things like hair bands and such and my locks need it man :)
