Sister blog Intelligensiya have positively taken a different tact and have started to put together a bloggers’ political party. We ask fellow bloggers to visit the blog, see what they are doing and express our support. The link is on the blog roll at the bottom right of this blog.
We have a suggestion as part of the Intelligensiya Party election manifesto:
Random testing of members of the Fiji Law Society, the Fiji Bar, the magistrates, the judiciary, both houses of parliament and senior executives of the Fiji Public Service, military, prison and police officers for so called illegal “Recreational Drugs”.
The taking of illegal substances such as Marijuana, Heroin, Cocaine and synthetic drugs such as Ice is a criminal offence in this Country and those in the upper echelons of society must walk the talk on the subject.
When people we look up to in society test negative for illicit substance, it would send home a strong message to those of our youths that maybe contemplating on experimenting with drugs.
If such a law is being imposed upon our sports elite and have found victims in the likes of rugby starts Rupeni Caucaunibuca, Filimone Delasau and Isireli Naqelevuki, why shouldn’t we impose the same rules on sections of society mentioned above.
With the benefit of hindsight, the imposition of such a regulation, could have avoided the nation of being over run by hallucinating and schizophrenic human rights lawyers and military officers that raped us of of our democracy and human rights in the name of cleaning up corruption.
It has been nineteen months now and we are yet to see solid evidence of corruption from the witchhunt that followed.
