The Closing Doors....

Ni sa bula,

The doors to this Interim Government is closing...closing all over the place. The Asian Development has just shut theirs. The EU is considering closing theirs. Australia, New Zealand the the Pacific neighbours have theirs shut, with opening subject to conditions being met. Even the USA is in on this.

Even the international bodies are shunning us like we're the proverbial leper. The ICC is one. The UN is another. Fiji is soon going to be the child told to go and stand in the corner. Facing the wall.

What does that mean for us as a nation?

It's means transiting via Korea because your Father/Mother/Sister/Brother is in the RFMF/IG and you, by association, are persona non-grata in Australia and New Zealand and Japan. It means being unable to go for your check-up because the doctor is in New Zealand and you are in Fiji. Bainimarama, with the nurses up in arms over your pay-cuts, this would be one tamani slack time for you to have one of your heart attacks and to require their attention....and that also goes for you Senilagakali.

It means less trade opportunities, less export opportunities, a longer return to normalcy in the economy, and a struggle as a nation. It means more job losses, less vacancies, more migration and basically a kick in the national gut when the nation is down.

What is a kick in the national gut, some of you may ask?

This is one such kick...the removal of income tax from unit trusts such as Colonial's and Fijian Holdings. My advise (with my limited financial knowledge).....get your saqamoli's out of there ASAP!!!! Another is the "priority" placed on Mineral Water and not on tap water....I pity you Cunningham/Tacirua/na-veivanua-e-maca-tu-kina-na-wai residents...good thing we are flooding..how ironic is that!!!!

Who is kicking the country? It's Bainimarama and his stooges. It's about time we give them a Severo-style kick up the backside. Either that or we take this and keep quiet.

All those in favour of kicking the Bainimocracy, get in line..... Here. The more of us that kick, the faster we can kick them out. Try it, it's very satisfying. I'm speaking here from personal experience....it'l cure that ulcer that's been agonising you since Dec 5th.

Only thing left is for the people to collectively go on strike and kick the IG out. I know people in the private sector who will also be taking 'sickies' if the civil service goes on strike in protest against the current regime.

was just talking to some 'junior' military guys. they say that most of the younger ones are not happy with the situation, esp those that practice their faith. the ones behind frank are rellies and those that believe in brawn over brain, and that there is an underground network growing of military personnel who are NOT happy with how things have turned out, or just don't agree with this whole thing in the first place.
danger signs for Vb and his thugs!

Most of the senior Military guys who had backbone and morals were kicked out before the coup, those senior military guys left are spineless and gutless who blindly follow or as one of those who left called them "bumsuckers". These are some of the same military officers who stood around doing nothing while those in lower ranks were beating the CRW to death, they didn't do anything because as one of them put it "they might have turned on us"...real lamulamu, bula balavu mentality. They deserve a leader like "abandon his command and run" Frank Bainimarama. Time for those junior officers to step up and bring back some pride to that once proud institution.

The Deputy Chief of US embassy in Fiji really tells it like it is on the economy and current governance on Fijilive. http://www.fijilive.com/news/show/news/2007/03/29/fijilive5.html
Wonder if the military will haul him in for questioning (not!!)...ha! ha! ha!

Noooo,nooo! they do not have the guts to haul in someone when its guns against guns. They only take us the unarmed. That is the rule from none other than the Ko Mai (qara ni ) Da (levu)

Please erase the Fijian phrases in brackets in the last comment, # 7 as that is gutter-level talk and has no place in your blog exchanges.

I understand that the language might offend some people, but in the interest of free speech ( which is an endangered species in this neck of the woods) I will ask whomever made that post to please refrain from it.

We can vent, rant and rave without resorting to the kind of language we wouldn't use on our mothers.
