Bloggers, well Chodo and the FLP are now openly showing their true colours about their supporting the coup from the very beginning and rumours concerning John Samy’s appointment before the coup seems to have merit. Well the wheels of justice may turn slowly, but ‘turn’ they do and with the advent of the Internet age, all these ‘shit’ will one day come back to haunt the illegal junta and what a day that will be!!! Blog on ragone as we come close to the 600,000 hit mark!!!!

Update: 1:36PM GOING back on a commitment made to Pacific Island leaders and the international community to hold elections by March next year is embarrassing for Fiji, says former opposition leader Mick Beddoes.
Mr Beddoes said by calling off next years elections, interim Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama has sent out the message that Fiji could not honour any of its commitments. Mr Beddoes added that it appeared from Dr Fred Seveles statement that Commodore Bainimarama was clearly told about the Forums unwillingness to accept such a diluting qualification in the Communiqu.
“He had the opportunity then to pull out and not give any undertaking, but he did not. In addition the remarks about the possibility of an extended time if genuine efforts were being made by the interim administration seems reasonable enough to me, yet the interim administration has continued to waste time and adopt a go slow approach towards their commitments,” he said.
“This is very embarrassing for Fiji and it makes us look pretty stupid when it comes to dealing with the International community and our Pacific neighbours because we are telling the world that we simply cannot honour any of the commitments we give, or we dont mean what we say or they cannot rely on us to stick to whatever we do agree to.” Mr Beddoes said this was yet another example of bad governance and poor leadership. “And if this is the standard that John Samy and his NCBBF is setting as the minimum requirement for good governance and leadership for the Charter outcomes, then I am afraid we will be doomed to a prolong period of aimless wandering,” he said.
