Chairperson, the Minister is absolutely the last person who should stand up in this House and give us a lecture on the Constitution, because the root cause of the problem is that the State Security Agency, SSA, is becoming like a Stasi, which cannot tell the difference between a national security threat and a political threat to President Jacob Zuma.
The Minister has set a new record by generating two scandals in the last two weeks - first signalgate and now spycablegate. I would like to ask the Minister whether he does not agree that it is in his interests, in our interests and in the country's interests that he take political responsibility and resign rather than relying on a rogue official's defence and making some poor official walk the plank. Thank you. [Applause.]
