Max Ozinsky contra Helen Suzman


Max Ozinsky is talking crap about Helen Suzman:

“The second opposition party, the Progressive Party (PP), had only a lone representative in parliament in Helen Suzman, whose influence there was minimal and who was in any case more concerned with the huge racial divisions in the country than with universal national service among white men.”

“In 1971, even the UP, which usually took a hard line on security, added their voice to the calls, and in 1972 Helen Suzman was moved to speak in parliament on behalf of objectors, despite admitting that she ‘held no brief for Jehovah’s Witnesses’.”
