Our posting below has a elicited some of the most hilarious commentary which has not been kind to our foolish Minister of Fisheries.
One of the best responses has come from a leading international fisheries scientist who prefers that his name not be published. He states:
"My advice in this matter to your Minister (care of Mark Twain): Better to keep your mouth closed and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt".
A former fisheries minister states:
"Normally such ministerial statement would be something concocted by Evita se Perron or other diabolically funny comedian in order to ridicule and offend someone. And we're dealing with a reality show! Very hard to take in. Is there NOBODY around the poor witless minister who can protect her against herself?"
Another comment received from a Southern African journalist:
"Waiting in anticipation for the announcement of a tender for FISH WHISPERERS to convince the fish species to relocate and distribute themselves fairly across the entire coast of SA!"
