    Well done.

    Perhaps you would like to turn your attention to other pressing matters...

    such as going after Google or what happened in S. Africa over the weekend

    {whichever is easier...}

      Out of interest what happened in South Africa last weekend? The BBC's leading Africa story is currently someone getting a job at Louis Vuitton...

        I think the poster was getting at what happened in the Cricket.

        I sort of get the feeling that the story has a lot more to reveal much like Trump and the Model.

      "what happened in S. Africa over the weekend"

      Well? Tell us! What happened in South Africa over the weekend! From what I can see, several things happened in South Africa over the weekend.

      There's this, and this, or this, as well as this.

      Would you care to enlighten the rest of the reg readership?

      Edit: and what Korev said above, something about Louis Vuitton job.

        There is a lot of anti-white sentiment going on in SA at the moment. The SABC (and other media outlets) are not reporting on farm murders, yet it is happening, and is one of the reasons Australia is fast tracking visas from white farmers.

        The government turns a blind eye to these kind of things, and seems to be totally disinterested in the pight of the farmer.

        Also they do not see what the consequences of "land expropriation without compensation" will be, it will be a total disaster.

        Anon, because.

          SABC won't report on anything that doesn't suit whatever ruling faction of the ANC's political agenda, nothing new there. Look at how often they covered Zuma's dirty dealings with the Guptas when literally every other media outlet in the country was.

      Don't punch down at them, it doesn't do any good. They'll just virtue signal twice as hard over their grass fed, free range, organic latte and avocado toast.

    re. ... journalism prism

    Is it a proper optical glass prism or is it an artistic representation of a prism?

    Either way, I'm sure he'll be proud to display it in his home or his office.

    “That, dear Reg readers, starts with us. We’re the folks who made this world. We’re the folks who keep it ticking over. Surveillance capitalism, that’s on us. It’s our legacy.”

    Oh? Really?

    Take a walk on the wilder wider wackier side of life and realise surveillance capitalism is on them that have gone on before, and it is Dowry and yours to do with as you wish whenever able and fit and worthy.
