Tolls ring for good lifestyles: iLive
LISTENING to the news that e-tolling is to go ahead, one point emerges from the ruling by Judge Louis Vorster.
He stated, quite clearly, that there is and should continue to be a complete separation of the judiciary from the country's authority. In other words, courts should not interfere with government. By extension then, surely, the reverse should and must apply.
I wonder if that is his personal opinion, coloured by the emotional fight around e-tolls, or if he is speaking for the entire judiciary. If it is the latter case, why is it that the rules appear to apply selectively?
In the end, the only winners will ultimately be those who have become used to the lifestyle for which they have sacrificed their integrity and the ideals for which so many fought and died. Is that the final ruling and judgment on our country?
We had better hope that there are still grounds to appeal, on every level.
