I am in two minds about this. On the one hand there should be no secrets. Especially from government. We voted them into power but power corrupts. On the other hand you want a candid report from your ambassador. Where is the golden middle?

I doubt there is a golden middle… but I’m all for leaks after the fact, it serves to remind those in power to tread ethically in future.

Makes for some fascinating reading though.

I wonder, if something like this would happen here, what would come out? To see what the “leaders of the country” really think of us, the movements in the back before new developments and who really run the country.

I shudder at the thought. However, keeping in mind the looming ban on the media, one must wonder, on the other hand, our politicians are’nt hesitant to speak their petty little minds, we’re subjected to Malema and his ilk on a daily basis.
