DA`s rating of the executive

1 December 2014

The DA`s rating of the executive is too ridiculously subjective, illogical and flawed for anyone to take seriously. As we have said over the years, the DA is not a rating agency; it has neither political objectivity nor rational assessment tools to qualify it to conduct a serious judgment of any area of government`s work. As an opposition, the job of the DA has been simply to oppose. That it habitually elects to do so through endless charades and gimmicks, as this meaningless annual ritual attests, is illustrative of the bankruptcy of ideas and political strategy within its ranks. Given its new EFF-inspired disruptive, rowdy, ill-informed and incoherent opposition posture during this parliamentary term, the DA should be conducting an honest reflection of itself rather than expend time and energy on such futile exercises. We dismiss this cheap publicity stunt with the contempt it deserves.
