Challenge of the 80s

In the run-up to the 1981 General Election in which both Nigel (right) and I were candiates for the National Parliament in South Africa, Nigel produced an election newspaper, "Challenge of the 80s". There were several issues of the compact newspaper and these were distributed throughout the constituencies in which our New Republic Party fielded candidates. It had a racy, readable format and brought the news and views of the candidates to the people at a time when the national press did not give our party much coverage, despite us being the official opposition in Parliament. Most of the anti-goverment coverage went to the PFP, a smaller party which eventually became the official opposition.
