    Excellently put Mr. Herbst. Haven’t purchased a Cape Times since. Miss it terribly but unless we vote with our feet Surve is going to claim circulation and get better advertising rates. The best thing we can do is to stop buying Independent newspapers. The sooner the sales drop off a cliff the better.

    Great article,but let’s face it Weaver (who was a year or two ahead of me at SACSHigh)is an insufferable snob while Cape Times in its eagerness to get rid of its tight-fisted Irish owners refused to let us comment on Sekunjulo’s offer ,thereby preventing us from making representations to the Competition Commission.Then it failed to report on the fact that I had lodged a complaint with the CC and later had appealed to the Competition Tribunal. Imagine Independent newspapers being forced by a little Richard-head like me to spend money on lawyers and then failing to report on its victory.
