Ni Sa Bula,
After a brief halyconian period, which now, upon reflection seems like the lull before an impending storm, the illegal regime that has infected this nation has picked up the pace again, with a vengence....it now a case of "once more into the breach, dear friends" for those of us who detest this governing parasite.
That is the only way one can really view this regime. Unlike the symbiotic relationships that abound in nature, and are found to be mutually beneficial the world over, this regime is a parasite, sucking the life out of our beloved nation.The unfolding "happenings" over the last few days are, if they were not the reality that is now Fiji, a comical farce. It's almost as if these things were scripted as Hollywood does in it's blockbuster thrillers, a plot that is intended to keep you on the edge of your seats. Literally on the edge of your seats.
The head "wanna-be-bean-counter" opened things with the allegations that the 2006 elections were rigged. No suprise that the sacked Elections supervisor, Mr. Semesa Karavaki, was quick and vigirous to defend the elections, and deny all accusations made. Let's step back and take a good, long, hard look at that.
The elections was contested by quite a few parties, of which the SDL and the FLP were the two top contenders. Now the claim being made is that around 1.9 million ballot papers were printed, while only 800,000 odd votes were cast. The conclusion being drawn by Mr. Chaudry is that as there were so many ballot papers printed, and there are over 650,000 "unaccounted" ballot papers, the missing papers must have been stuffed into ballot boxes to rig the elections.
Firstly, any lawyer worth his/her salt would realise that missing ballot papers a rigged election it does not make. While Mr. Karavaki should come up with an explanation for the papers, no one should jump to the conclusion that the missing ballot papers were stuffed into the ballot boxes. Incidently, Mr. Karavaki has answered that question, saying that all papers were at the Elections Office in Suva, when he was unceremoniously kicked out. He also asserts that if there was any destruction of the papers, this would have happened AFTER he was removed from office. Serve and volleyed.
Secondly, Mr. Chaudry claims that there was collusion on parties on a massive scale. If this is the case, to my feeble way of thinking, there must be people out there, who have first hand knowledge of what happened. I'm sure that if there really was, by now, there would have been a witness. And BTW...Peter Forster does not make a credible witness. Doesn't his resume say "international conman"? Also collusions on that scale would mean that the police, the Civil Servants, the International and Local Observer Groups (Commonwealth, UN, Forum, USP) and definitely the media were all duped on a massive scale. Sorry, Mahen, this allegations puts you in the league of the Area 51/Agent Mulder conspiracy theory lovers, who, now come to think of it, might have more going for them than you do.
The claims are given verbally, with no evidence being produced to back the allegations. The Elections Observers produced a report each, stating that the elections in Fij were free and fair. While there were problems picked up in the report, the overall assessment of the elections was that the results reflected the will of the people. I think Mahen, you overlooked that little fact when you overthrew the elected Government. Who knows...maybe you stuffed the ballot boxes back in 1999, and got into power, because you seem to know so much about...well...stuff.
Now this idiot posing as a Finance Minister is claiming in a letter to today's Fiji Times, that the issue here is the 650,00 missing ballot papers, that are still missing now. Why is that an issue Mahen? You planning to stuff some ballot boxes now? The elections are over, and now the matter of missing ballot papers are a non-issue.
When you look at the elections results on wikipedia (I don't trust the results maintained by the Elections Office website anymore) it shows that had the FLP, NAP, NFP really ganged up on the SDL, they would have beaten them. Also, how come the SDL didn't win any Indian communal seats? You'd think that they would have won a few, if they stuffed the ballot boxes. The clincher in this is that the investigations were conducted by Chaudry's appointees, on Chaudry's watch, with Chaudry overseeing the whole thing. What a total load of crap!!!! There is no way in the world that investigation is independant, and fair. Game,set and match Karavaki!!!!
The last few days have seen people like ASP Josaia Rasiga being held at QEB. You read, UN/EU. Hold the dosh...this regime is as likely to buy guns as they are to stuff their pockets with your cash if you send it over. The poor cane farmers will never see a cent of that money...I guarantee you that.
The last few days have also seen the economic doom voices grow louder and louder. Hey... I TOLD YOU SO!!! Then we have the fanatical coup supporters who are claiming that this is part of a cycle, and that in 2-3 years time, the economy will be booming. WHAT A LOAD OF CRAP!!!! This is not part of any cycle, unless you refer to the coup cycle. Then there is the camp that is claiming that the FLP was the best Government because they were the only Government who produced a surplus.
Thing about that one. If a Government produces a surplus, then it spent less than it received. If that was the can, WHY DID WE PAY THE EXTRA TAX DOLLARS? I pay my taxes and I expect it to be spend by whatever Government is in power to build roads, wharves, airports, hospitals, schools, give sholarships, and generally build up the economy. If they save money, then I expect to see lower tax rates the next year, because the Government proved that they don't need the extra money.
Then there's the matter of the military trying to shut us down. Us being the bloggers. How rude!!!! Guess you are not all for freedom of speech, especially if it impinges on your "freedom" with the ladies. I guess "Dr." Suresh never did get around to giving you the meaning of that word UBIQUITOUS Leweni? Seeing as that none of you grasp the implications of this step you intend to implement.
Well, seeing as you still don't understand the nature of the web...let me simplify it for you so that you can grasp the concept of this modern marvel of telecommunications technology.
The web is like the coconut wireless (you do know what that is don't you? If you don't...) on steriods...think virtual William Ryder. It's all over the place. Once this thing gets hold of anything ANYONE IN THE WORLD WITH AN INTERNET CONNECTION can read it.
You might block one site. It will just move to another, or people will use free downloadable software to bypass your blocks that you force FINTEL to place. Yes, you can download such software FOC. If they move sites, you will have to keep track of this full time. It is an exercise in futility (go Leweni...work that dictionary!!!) because you don't have the resources to keep tracking these things full time. Also, people email these things to everyone they can. They are also printed and hard-copies are distrubuted and have been found in places like Lau, Kadavu and Rotuma. So if you think you can shut this down, by trying to attack this, you have just (again) increased the visibility of these blogs. Guess you still haven't figured it out, have you?
YOU CANNOT STOP THE TRUTH!!!!!
It always gets out. Your guns, your threats, your decrees are all useless. So stop. Go home. And give Fiji back to the real owners...it's people. We have had enough of you.
God Bless Fiji,mawdsomething
