Yadra bloggers. SV is happy that Oz, NZ, USA & the EU are not buying Gate’s crap judgment and continue to insist on holding General Elections next year. We ask that travel bans remain in place until General Elections have been held and a new elected Government installed. The vandalism to the Chief Justice’s vehicle should be a wake-call to the illegal Gates. It serves as a reminder that ‘if I can do this to your car, imagine what I can do to you?’ Keep up the fight ragone and remember we are determined to see this through to the end!!!!

Australia’s High Commissioner to Fiji James Batley says proposed talks between Fiji’s political parties will not do enough to move the country towards democracy.
Interim Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama last week invited Fiji’s registered political parties to meet for a discussion about ways to move the country forward after the 2006 coup.
Batley told the Australia Network that a return to democracy in Fiji remains Australia’s key objective and while a forum is a good start, it will not solve the issue.
He says political dialogue can only assist Fiji to move forward but it cannot be a substitute for having delayed elections.
The Pacific Islands Forum, including Australia, has expressed a willingness to get behind and to support a genuine independent and inclusive process of dialogue.
