SIR — As I write this letter I am watching Judge for Yourself (e-News Channel) with Judge Dennis Davis, asking yet again whether there should be a wealth tax to make reparations for the past. Dubiously named constitutional law expert Pierre de Vos patronisingly bangs on and on about white culpability for apartheid insisting that white people pay back because “they structurally benefited from apartheid”. He suggests that a Development Fund be set up. Accusing Dave Steward (FVV de Klerk Foundation) of race-blindness, he claims his rejection of a wealth tax is racist.
