Bryan Rostron on the Cars of Cabinet Ministers

Black PetalsThe Author, Bryan RostronBryan Rostron, author of Black Petals, launches a humorous tirade which takes us from Jeremy Cronin, who Rostron suspects might just drive an old clunker, to the BMW 750i of Blade Nzimande:

Ye who do not understand how Communist Cabinet ministers can “deploy” top-of-the-range luxury limos simply do not appreciate all- important neo-Marxist dialectics.

This, in a nutshell, is “representative redistribution”. That’s the eloquent term coined by Jeremy Cronin, deputy transport minister and deputy general secretary of the South African Communist Party. Comrade Cronin, being white and thus a serial deputy, is not sufficiently representative so probably drives an old hippy jalopy.
