A lot has happened since the appearance of The Return of the South African Insult.
Thabo Mbeki is no longer president, Manto Tshabalala-Msimang is no longer minister of health and Luke Watson wore a Springbok jersey and then said he wanted to vomit on it.
Amidst all this excitement, one figure still managed to stand out, mainly because he was shouting a lot and threatening to kill for Zuma at the time. Julius Malema is worthy of an entire chapter on his own. As comedian Nick Rabinowitz says, if Julius Malema got an F for woodwork, how can we expect him to build a cabinet?
Some things haven’t changed: South Africans still hate taxis and taxi drivers, they still love BMWs, the Gautrain sinkhole keeps opening up in Oxford Road and Bafana Bafana aren’t quite so useless.
