What is the best for Fiji.



No not the Rugby, the Saffas were too good and the Islanders just could not compete.

The Politics and Frank.

Took a Cab from Addington to CHC at 0600 this morning and the cabbie was a dual passport holder Fijian who has been in Christchurch for many years.

In answer to my direct question is Frank the answer or not, he was unequivical.
Frank is right. More people can share in the wealth, buy property and best of all for Cabbie, Frank has ended the corruption, the patronage and the hereditary chiefs power over the commerce and trade with the connivance of the Methodist church.
He concluded by hoping he can finish the job and Cabbie is completely mystified as to why New Zealand and Australia want to derail Frank.
As I am, the Pacific Island Nations seem to suffer from endemic nepotism and entitlitus. How much is the total aid paid by all nations per head work out to.

Pretty much what Cam Slater who was born in Fiji, I think, has been saying all along.

Nobody seems to want to know why it is that Fijian AND Indo- Fijians think Mr Bainimarama is right onto it.

Your cabbie man has got it in one.

NZ and Australia have been effectively booted out, to be replaced with China, India and Malaysia.

We are seen as petty back yard bullies who would not dare deal with China or Thailand in the same way.

Until Mr Bainimarama can pull the teeth of the Methodist hierarchy and bring about reform of the appallingly gerrymandered electoral system, there will be no election.

David Farrar and Murray McCully can pour on the hypocritical horse shit but it won't make any difference.

If that's true he would hold elections tomorrow, but he won't. Why are you guys apologists for totalitarian dictators you happen to agree with? You have a pretty tenuous grasp of things such as principles, which explains the slavish and child-like devotion to the Nats I guess.

I suspect they / we are not generally suppotive of such people but when the alternative is worse maybe being alongside and helping change is better than claiming a moral high ground and being absent because they are not (yet) democratic.

The alternative is worse than beatings, curtailing of press freedoms, general oppression, broken promises, kleptocracy and totalitarian dictatorship. OK great. How do you know?
