Ask the People

I see that the grate tater spat the dummy again.

He has cancelled the invitation that Foreign
Minister, Ratu Inoke Kubuabola’ made at last weeks
meeting of the Contact Group in Auckland.

Commodore Bainimarama says the people of Fiji are happy with the regime. I am not sure which people he means. 
If this were truly so of course, he would not have cancelled the invitation.
He also said  
foreign leaders should talk with the people on the ground.
Of course, that is a bit hard to do now the invitation to visit has been cancelled.
Never mind, I have. 
They are not.
Unfortunately they dare not say so in public, or publish any statements to that effect, even if they could. 
Which they cannot. 


About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.

    Fiji’s interim prime minister, Commodore Frank Bainimarama, says he will have no more dealings with the Pacific Islands Forum ministerial group tasked with liaising with Fiji.
    This comes after the group reported that the situation in Fiji is worsening.
    Commodore Bainimarama says the people are happy with the regime and foreign leaders should talk with the people on the ground.
    He’s told Auckland-based Radio Tarana that he rejects the position taken by some Forum countries.
    “Unfortunately Fiji will not toe the line but will act independently as a sovereign country for its national interests. In this situation they want to continue to want to impose the concept of democracy to resolve Fiji’s issues. Let me just remind them Fiji will seek its own path to a true democratic nation.”
