The Direct Democracy Forum have to admit to more than a touch of envy that the DA and Glynnis Breytenbach have got together. What a coup for the DA.
We also admit to a touch of sadness. There is a crying need for people of Ms Breytenbach’s caliber in the corridors of government and it is truly sad that she has left them for the corridors of Parliament. No doubt she will contribute as meaningfully to the latter as she did to the former, but that is not the point.
The DDF are probably not on Ms Breytenbach’s nor the DA’s radar, yet, but none the less serve notice to both that if we ever have the opportunity to poach Ms Breytenbach back to the corridors of government, we will, and there will be a position for her as head of the NPA, and an opportunity for her to deal with some unfinished business.
For the moment, though, congratulations to the DA and to Ms Breytenbach.
The buck stops at the ballot box
