Business Day, 07 November 2002, About turn in stance?

AND now for the inevitable payoff! The New National Party hand control to the African National Congress and, in return, Renier Schoeman is embraced by them as deputy health minister.

Ever the rent-a-principle survivor, now he too will no doubt try and defend the government's shocking stance on HIV/AIDS and its criminal neglect in failing to provide life saving drugs just as steadfastly as he condemned them a year ago.

It's obviously worth it for the extra perks and bigger pension, Renier. Slightly more than 30 pieces of silver I would think.
