The Mercury

Politico origins?


DO WE get waterspout­s off our coast? One has appeared off the coast of New South Wales, Australia – a tall, thin funnel of cloud and water spray, caused by a high layer of cold air blowing across water, and clashing with the warm air below.

According to this news snippet, various forms of sea life are often caught up in the funnel and then dumped a long way inland.

If we do have these waterspout­s, do they reach Limpopo province? It could account for the sudden appearance of all kinds of weird political specimens.


TWO fortune tellers are on the Durban beachfront. “Lovely winter weather, isn’t it?” “Gorgeous. Reminds me of the winter of 2015.”
