Congress of the People Party or People of the Congress Party?


CAN you tell the difference, I know I can’t, but does it matter? With all the fuss about the breakaway of former ANC politico’s from the embattled ruling party and attempts to prevent the use of the word “congress”  to describe another political party, one can only wheep at the flagrant discregard being shown to the constitution which unequivicolly protects political expression such as freedom of association and other rights one would normally take for granted in a democracy.

Will the ANC act to prevent the use of the term people, democracy and revolutionary, or worker being used as a moniker? The case being made by the flailing ruling party doesn’t make any sense, but it does avoid the problem of the Congress of the People Party who don’t like the People of the Congress Party, getting out of hand.
