The Johannesburg vs Cape Town debate has been raging since the early “Voortrekkers” left the Cape to settle in the city of gold.
debacle debate in South Africa between Jo-burgers and Capetonians just stepped up a notch.

It all started with this post from Jade Mitchell: Go F**k yourself Cape Town
The view from Cape Town
The follow-up from Cape Town by Jeremy Coutts: A Capetonian’s response to being told to go fuck himself.

I’ve also seen a number of facebook and twitter status messages with more examples of hostility, humour, level headedness and just plain crazy reasons why their city should be considered the best.
While there will never be an end to the debate on a city by city level, I think we all need to agree that South Africa is the best place to live.
