I hear all the arguments against the DA. To be fair, when you live in an ANC/EFF run municipality/province, you will appreciate the service delivery by the DA versus the totally non-existing service delivery from any other party. The FF+ is a good party for the whiteys because it fights for 'their minority ' rights - unfortunately on the ground they just take the place backwards in maintaining an apartheid style demand for the (especially but not limited to) afrikaans speaking Saffers. The DA was always going to be the only viable party to join middle class Saffers of all races in a decent opposition to the ANC. That does not make them angels or saviours - it just makes them politicians and having dirty laundry is now pushing those middle class other races to the ANC as the only left over option.
That is bad news for SA since we need a strong opposition and heaven forbid that would be the EFF. My province, my municipality, my district is run by the ANC and EFF as opposition - as I said, if you have never stayed in such a place, the DA is the best vote. That is just my opinion.
