I'd give Jeremy Clarkson a blowjob....

I have two man crushes in this world. One is Gordan Ramsey , and the other is Jeremy Clarkson of "top gear" fame. I don't even like cars but I watch the show just for the hilarious and witty anti nany culture commentry from Clarkson and co. So it was to my total glee to find this article on his perspective of our little countries "worst" city. I'm going to shut up now and let you fucktards read this and weep.

www.timesonline.co.uk

I dare you to visit Johannesburg, the city for softies - Jeremy Clarkson


It’s the least frightening place on earth, yet everyone speaks of how many times they’ve been killed that day
Jeremy Clarkson

Every city needs a snappy one-word handle to pull in the tourists and the investors. So, when you think of Paris, you think of love; when you think of New York, you think of shopping; and when you think of London – despite the best efforts of new Labour to steer you in the direction of Darcus Howe – you think of beefeaters and Mrs Queen.

Rome has its architecture. Sydney has its bridge. Venice has its sewage and Johannesburg has its crime. Yup, Jo’burg – the subject of this morning’s missive – is where you go if you want to be carjacked, shot, stabbed, killed and eaten.

You could tell your mother you were going on a package holiday to Kabul, with a stopover in Haiti and Detroit, and she wouldn’t bat an eyelid. But tell her you’re going to Jo’burg and she’ll be absolutely convinced that you’ll come home with no wallet, no watch and no head.

Jo’burg has a fearsome global reputation for being utterly terrifying, a lawless Wild West frontier town paralysed by corruption and disease. But I’ve spent quite a bit of time there over the past three years and I can reveal that it’s all nonsense.

If crime is so bad then how come, the other day, the front-page lead in the city’s main newspaper concerned the theft of a computer from one of the local schools? I’m not joking.

The paper even ran a massive picture of the desk where the computer used to sit. It was the least interesting picture I’ve ever seen in a newspaper. But then it would be, because this was one of the least interesting crimes.

“Pah,” said the armed guard who’d been charged with escorting me each day from my hotel to the Coca-Cola dome where I was performing a stage version of Top Gear.

Quite why he was armed I have absolutely no idea, because all we passed was garden centres and shops selling tropical fish tanks. Now I’m sorry, but if it’s true that the streets are a war zone, and you run the risk of being shot every time you set foot outside your front door, then, yes, I can see you might risk a trip to the shops for some food. But a fish tank? An ornamental pot for your garden? It doesn’t ring true.

Look Jo’burg up on Wikipedia and it tells you it’s now one of the most violent cities in the world . . . but it adds in brackets “citation needed”. That’s like saying Gordon Brown is a two-eyed British genius (citation needed).

Honestly? Johannesburg is Milton Keynes with thunderstorms. You go out. You have a lovely ostrich. You drink some delicious wine and you walk back to your hotel, all warm and comfy. It’s the least frightening place on earth. So why does every single person there wrap themselves up in razor wire and fit their cars with flame-throwers and speak of how many times they’ve been killed that day? What are they trying to prove?

Next year South Africa will play host to the football World Cup. The opening and closing matches will be played in Jo’burg, and no one’s going to go if they think they will be stabbed.

The locals even seem to accept this, as at the new airport terminal only six passport booths have been set aside for non-South African residents.

At first it’s baffling. Why ruin the reputation of your city and risk the success of the footballing World Cup to fuel a story that plainly isn’t true? There is no litter and no graffiti. I’ve sauntered through Soweto on a number of occasions now, swinging a Nikon round my head, with no effect. You stand more chance of being mugged in Monte Carlo.

Time and again I was told I could buy an AK47 for 100 rand – about £7. But when I said, “Okay, let’s go and get one”, no one had the first idea where to start looking. And they were even more clueless when I asked about bullets.

As I bought yet another agreeable carved doll from yet another agreeable black person, I wanted to ring up those idiots who compile surveys of the best and worst places to live and say: “Why do you keep banging on about Vancouver, you idiots? Jo’burg’s way better.”

Instead, however, I sat down and tried to work out why the locals paint their city as the eighth circle of hell. And I think I have an answer. It’s because they want to save the lions in the Kruger National Park.

I promise I am not making this up. Every night, people in Mozambique pack up their possessions and set off on foot through the Kruger for a new life in the quiet, bougainvillea-lined streets of Jo’burg. And very often these poor unfortunate souls are eaten by the big cats.

That, you may imagine, is bad news for the families of those who’ve been devoured. But actually it’s even worse for Johnny Lion. You see, a great many people in Mozambique have Aids, and the fact is this: if you can catch HIV from someone’s blood or saliva during a bout of tender love-making, you can be assured you will catch it if you wolf the person down whole. Even if you are called Clarence and you have a mane.

At present, it’s estimated that there are 2,000 lions in the Kruger National Park and studies suggest 90% have feline Aids. Some vets suggest the epidemic was started by lions eating the lungs of diseased buffalos. But there are growing claims from experts in the field that, actually, refugees are the biggest problem.

That’s clearly the answer, then. Johannesburgians are telling the world they live in a shit-hole to save their lions. That’s the sort of people they are. And so, if you are thinking about going to the World Cup next year, don’t hesitate.

The exchange rate’s good, the food is superb, the weather’s lovely and, thanks to some serious economic self-sacrifice, Kruger is still full of animals. The word, then, I’d choose to describe Jo’burg is “tranquil”.

easy to explain

crime is covered up and not reported joburg is a lekker city for sure but very dageorus when u visit jobuirg as a tourist shure u dont see crime but live there long enuff and u will


here like for example Thursday morning 26 February, a gang of blacks broke into a townhouse complex in Rustenburg. They broke open the burglar proofing of one unit and viciously attacked 51 year old Willie Klopper.

Next, they dragged the hapless Klopper to the garage, tied him to the side mirror of his car, drenched him in petrol and set him alight. Residents of the complex were awakened by blood-curdling anguished screams at approximately 1AM. A severely burned Klopper was somehow able to free himself, running outside before collapsing in the parking area of the complex. Mrs Lizelle Meyer, a neighbour, was the first person to come to his aid.

“When we heard the terrible screaming, we looked through the window and saw someone lying in the parking area. He was badly burned. He asked us for water but when we handed him a glass, he couldn’t take it. The skin of his forearms was hanging from his fingertips. While he was still conscious, he told us two blacks broke in and set him on fire.”

According to Mrs Theonilde De Klerk, another neighbour, Klopper was naked when they found him. Its uncertain whether he slept nude, or whether he ripped off his clothing after being set on fire. “We placed wet sheets over his body so that he wouldn’t lie naked in front of all the people who came to look” she said.

Klopper’s car was still burning and every now & then loud bangs were heard as items in his garage exploded. Residents summoned the fire brigade and ambulance emergency services.

Klopper was first taken to the Ferncrest hospital in Rustenburg, after which he was moved to the Milpark truama unit by helicopter. He died there on Friday at 6:30 PM, having suffered 100% burn wounds all over his body.

His townhouse is situated in the rear corner of the complex and borders the perimeter wall. The attackers climbed over the wall, cut out the burglar proofing and gained access to his home while he was sleeping. Although the townhouse was ransacked, the subhuman kaffir murderers made off only with his cellphone and wallet.

A strong stench of burned material still hangs in the air and Klopper’s burnt out car is still parked in his garage. Klopper, a mining engineer lived on his own as he was going through a divorce. Klopper’s son Theuns (20) said: “We can never make peace with this. You have to be sick to do something like this”. His daughter Michelle was quoted as saying: My dad was a quiet, sober person who respected others. He didn’t deserve to die like this”.

Yes, south africa has 18 000 murders a year. But tourist murders are almost non existant. The murder rate for white people is also much lower than other populatons groups at 11 per 100 000 (compared to washington dc where it's 33 per 100 000 for example. So like me if people weren't all going around making the country out to be a total war zone then we'd probably agree with you It's when you make such ridiculous statements like this that you become foolish in our eyes.

Total crap...when someone is murdered in order to cover it up you'd need to have the entire police force , the hospitals , the insurance companies , the international watch dogs etc all in on it. That's a total rubbish statement.

Actually no , the papers , assuming you read the "white papers" do report every white murder. Not only report but go in sensationalistic graphic details akin to scat journalism.

It's almost pornograhic or mental masubatory in nature the extent that white south african actively seek out grusome tales of murder to validate their world view. Look for it and you will find it in any country.

i saw a movie about hillbrow
and it showed alot of blacks who were vicitms of crime and they all said they have been stabbed beaten or shot and the cops never ever show up in fact they say less than 55 percent of murders in sa are visited by csi cops i would say alot of murders in sa arnt investigated and probalmy not even documentad if cops dont show up they should on then on the movie one black oke who was stabeed in the face and the cops caught the guy and jsut let him ho

He’s comparing Jo’burg to Milton Keynes ??? He doesn’t seem to understand that crime in SA, when it happens is almost always lethal. Besides, he is famous and would have had security around him all the time. Plus, the ANC would have been alerted to his presence and made sure that nothing happened to him.

this is notgood news u can swear at me all u like doesnt change the facts

SA becomes net importer of food as vast tracts of land lie fallow.

South Africa’s food security is threatened by its chaotic rural land reform programme.

Thousands of once-productive farms, mainly in KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo, Mpumalanga and the Eastern Cape, lie abandoned and are causing serious shortages of staple foods.

The country now imports more food than it exports and local production of grain, fruit and vegetables can no longer keep pace with the growing population.

Uncertainty about South Africa’s land reform process — the authorities recently extended for the fourth time their deadline to finalise claims — has seen scores of commercial farmers stopping all investments in their properties. Others are leaving for more stable pastures, with many opting for Mozambique’s subtropical fruit and grain industry or stock farming in Botswana.

Although there have been success stories in land restitution, the process aimed to improve livelihoods has left scores of communities divided and in debt.

A private company appointed by the government as a strategic partner to provide management expertise for newly acquired restitution farms in Limpopo and Mpumalanga has collapsed, leaving beneficiaries owing millions in unpaid debt.

This week, the Land Claims Commission said an audit of the struggling projects has been concluded, but failed to provide specifics. But it did say the Department of Agriculture and Land Affairs would take the lead in the implementation of a “revival strategy”.

The new Land and Agrarian Reform Programme promises to put together support packages, employ project managers, engage strategic partners and landowners, procure investment and redesign farming operations.

On a two-week visit to farms around the country, the Sunday Times discovered that:

# Twenty top crop and dairy farms in the Eastern Cape, bought for R11.6-million and returned to a Kokstad community, are now informal settlements;

# A once-thriving potato farm in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands is now a makeshift soccer field;

# Ten thousand people given back 8000ha of prime fruit and macadamia farms in Limpopo are crippled by R5-million debt;

# A former multimillion-rand tea estate in Magoebaskloof in Limpopo has become an overgrown forest;

# More than five tons of a macadamia nut crop on a reclaimed Limpopo farm was so poor that it was dumped into the Levubu river; and

# A R22-million irrigation system built by the government to supply water to new farmers in KwaZulu-Natal lies unused.

A lack of post-settlement support, with almost no monitoring and evaluation on the ground, are cited as the main reasons for the crisis.

Ann Bernstein, executive director of the Centre for Development and Enterprise, a policy think-tank, said its research had shown that the economic viability of many rural regions was under serious threat. Some beneficiaries had no interest in farming but just wanted a secure place to stay, she said.

“The issue is that at least 50% of land reform projects have failed, and that means for many of the people involved their circumstances have not improved — and for some, have even got worse. And all this is happening in the midst of a rise in food prices,” Bernstein said.

AgriSA deputy president Dr Theo de Jager said the organisation was extremely concerned about collapsing farms.

He said “too many decision-makers” in each claimant community had made it difficult for commercial farmers to enter into agreed joint partnership ventures or mentoring programmes.

Andre Jooste, a senior manager at the National Agricultural Marketing Council, said they had seen a “relatively big increase” in the demand for food in the country. “The main concern with national food security is the fact that, since the early ’90s, the population has grown by 32% while overall agricultural production has only grown by 10%,” Jooste said.

“I think the failures we see in land reform was an opportunity missed to increase food supply in the country. Production has not kept up with population increases and that should be a serious concern to all role players.”

Food prices increased when there was restricted supply and big demand.

Professor Ben Cousins, director of the Programme for Land and Agrarian Studies at the University of the Western Cape, said the land reform process had not succeeded in improving people’s livelihoods.

“We’ve been measuring success in the wrong way by putting emphasis on speed in terms of meeting deadlines, which is counterproductive,” he said.

Despite a co-ordinated revival plan, acting chief land claims commissioner Andrew Mphela said it was too early to measure performance or to talk of failure. He said that contrary to “popular rhetoric and biased reporting from certain quarters”, projects did not collapse but instead experienced “challenges”.

Mphela said most claims were only at an initial planning stage as far as post-settlement support was concerned.

He said the government’s policy envisaged a 10-year period for implementation after claims had been concluded.

Mphela described the Centre for Development and Enterprise as “self-proclaimed experts” whose claims were “baseless”, “frivolous” and “vexatious, if not outright mischievous”.

He said land reform was not a simple process. “There is a human development dimension to it. There is a cultural dimension to it, which is about constructing the human spirit which was destroyed over decades.

“It is precisely this culture of labour that was destroyed by apartheid in our people. In fact, it made them hate labour in all its forms because for them it was not voluntary. This aspect of land reform and restructuring of dignity is never understood.” —

You're all missing the point. People like mr Clarkson read and hear about these ridiculous statements describing jhb like some sort of war zone. They arrive there and see it's actually a pretty nice wealthy, clean modern city where you are very unlikely to be harmed in any way. There's no signs of the stupid bullshit being peddled by the scaremongers.

As I have been trying to say , if you want people to take you "the country is going to hell" lot seriously , then stop making stupid claims. When ou economy was booming , you were saying "the economy is fucked" ...when murder rates are going down you are saying "the murder rate is getting out of control !" ....do you see our point ? It's nonsense and silly ..clearly you're either ignoring the facts to back up your silly little neurotic and racist view of the world.


South Africa and ...yes....even it's worse parts like jjb...is a perfectly safe and wonderful place to live for the rich, middle classed and even the poorer people who don't look for the wrong sort of trouble.

Oh what crap. I've written various articles showing how far more tourists per capita are murdered in tourist stron holds like Thailand , the Caribbean , Australia (the only countries I compared) than in South Africa. It's a very safe place to travel. I know you would love to see more tourists die here and that would give a sick person like you so deeply hoping for the failure of the country a great thrill , but it's simply not the case. Ge the fuck over it. This is a wonderful place to live.

I didn't see a point in there. Was that an attempt at sarcasm ? How does the fact that crime happens make a country a war zone ? By your logic evey country in the world is a war zone. Way to go buddy...better lock yourself in and order your food over the net you neurotic fuck.

Those are not "white papers". In fact, stats show that both the Herald and Dispatch have larger black readership than white. Whether or not the editors are white or black makes no difference.

Regardles of who the editor is or who the staff are , if the newspapers agenda panders to the sensationalistic taste of the white populace then it's a "White newspaper". To refute that obvious fact is to play semantics. The original point is that whitey still is the biggest advertising target market and if you want him to read your newspaper you better be damn sure you print enough horror stories with gruesome details of white murders as often as possibleto titillate his blood lust and to giv ehim something to moan about at the pub.

If you don't print enough of these stories he'll look somewhere else fr his news....the point of it all is that for some reason many white South Africans are repulsed by the idea of any good news and their world view they have based their life on falls apart if they can't see themselves as victims.

"Typical white South Africans". Dude, are you reading objectively? For some reason, you're hung up on the white part. SA has a vastly different media landscape now. Because the majority of newspapers in SA are bought and funded by blacks, the "sensationalism" is targeted at them. Not whites. But sensationalism is global.

Bringing whites into your silly arguments is a straw man route, and is inconsequential.

Newspaper x has more black readers than white readers without any form of evidence. What the fuck is that ?

Next you'e again missed the point (to vey littl surprise from my side, you're not very bright)...that even if there wer more black readers , it remains the big white money their advertisers are chiefly intrested in. Newspapers exist for the sole purpose of attracting advertising revenue and if you'e going to post anything to upset whitey and lose than readership the advertiser will take his money elsewhere 99% of the time. Simple as that.

If anything, Vodacom is targeting non-whites before whites. Therefore, it is not white money and interests that drive such campaigns.

That's just one example.

MTN is the same.

So stop making sweeping straw man claims. You look like an idiot.

-----------------------

At the moment there was any newspaper that started spewing anti white sentiment(never will happen cause a mass proportion of journalists in the major "white" newspapers are still whites) , or loses it's white readership by not publishing enough content where the latent implication is that everything is going to hell , they would insist on paying less for heir adverts or pull them from the paper altogether....newspaper DO NOT want this. They may aim to expand their product into the black emerging classes , but they certainly know the bulk of their big south african business is still whitey.


Vodacom is not black owned, vodacom has share holders of all races and colors. Don't believe the stupidity disguised as hype.

It is indeed. Go do your homework.

---
You have a vivid imagination. When did I say anything even remotely similiar ? I'm talking about free market capatalism and you're talking "white agendas"

---
You spin things so much.

Let's summarise.

1. You argue that most newspapers in SA are targeting whites, even though you have no supporting evidence other than "logical conclusions" and thumb-sucking.

2. You argue that newspapers report on every white murder / rape because their aim is to keep the white funders happy, even though you have no supporting evidence other than "logical conclusions" and thumb-sucking. (Four white cops were killed in my area, 2 weeks ago, and no reports appeared anywhere.) (In fact, I've just opened 3 newspapers, and I noticed that there are more reports on non-white murders and rapes, than on whites. So I'm not sure where that rubbish theory of yours comes from.)

3. You argue that stats don't mean a thing. Eg, there are more non-whites in the SA media than whites, but you say it's hype and lies, yet you have no supporting evidence again. I happen to be in the media, and know more than you.

4. You perpetuate denial and apartheid legacies to advance your straw man arguments.

5. You're mindlessly obsessed with race and never let up an opportunity to throw the said card down.

Grow up, dude.
