Plan B with Rebecca Davis - overalls, volunteering and pick-up artists.

Following the chaotic council meeting, Rebecca shifts her focus to talk about parliament and the State of the Nation address on the 12th of February. The Parliamentary dress code, specifically the EFF being allowed to wear their domestic worker uniforms and red overalls remains a sticking point.

The EFF has submitted a proposal to parliament to allow party members to vote in secret. Their point being that if all votes are non-secret in the national assembly then members of parliament will be forced to vote within their party lines which makes the discussions around issues irrelevant. Although this doesn't make South Africa an exception as it is a common practice in other parts of the world where members of parliament are expected to vote within their party lines or leave the party.

Pick-up artists communities

Trouble relating to the ladies? Rebecca discovered pick up artist’s community to assist men in knowing the techniques of approaching women with zero chance of rejection. Pick-up artists’ camps are also making their mark around South Africa. Check it out on www.puasa.co.za
