I refer to Claire Bisseker’s article “Time for tough choices and real haircuts”, November 5 2019. 

It is a fine article by Bisseker, as always, and she is quite correct in her suggestion that the thousands of politicians and public servants earning more than R1m should take a haircut.  

The other party that should take a severe haircut is, of course, the banks who recklessly lent so much money to state-owned enterprises that could quite apparently not pay back the money.
