SHOOT: South Africa, as far as I'm concerned, is a bad joke, not just its president. The idea that one can be 'Proudly South African' is farcical. We have much to be ashamed of, and what do we have to be proud of - good weather, wildlife and beautiful scenery, has nothing to do with the people of South Africa. It's like asking a good looking paedophile to stand up, hold his head high and be confident, be proud because the world is watching. And your pride is based on what, the good fortune you had to have good looks?
