Yadra bloggers. This is from Fiji Village this morning. SV is pleased the EU can see through the bull shit the illegal junta was trying to spin. What they don’t realise is their ‘politics’ is so simplistic compared to what the EU have to deal with on a daily basis in Europe and the world. Felicity Heffernan has now realised just how ‘insignificant’ she is with egg being lumped on her head by the EU. They pulled out of scheduled talks with her on the 11th hour and sent her a message instead. She should seriously review her stance because ‘NZ nobodies’ like her, Christopher Pryde, John Samy & Francis Nair to name only a few are fast becoming an embarrassment to their own governments. With her background in wild life conservation, one can imagime what the EU delegates must be thinking, especially when she started mouthing the same mantra of the illegal junta, that elections cannot be held next year. Well Felicity, the EU says it can and there is no real reason for elections not to happen, except to protect the coup perpetrators! BTW ragone, please remember to register on the website www.solivakasama.org because we want to begin our ‘smart-strategies campaign’ beginning in January 2009! We aim to prepare regular e-Petitions and send out monthly Newsletters to all relevant Governments, UN, EU, Media, NGO’s and any other stakeholders updating them on what is really happening in Fiji with the view to bring this illegal junta down and the return of a duly elected government. So register ragone!

We see no reason why elections cannot be held in 2009.
These are the views of the development committee for the European Parliament after a three day visit to Fiji on concerns on the country’s economic development, the sugar industry development and the broken promise that elections be held next year.
Delegation head Gabriele Zimmer through interpreter Daniel Parshley said they have had meetings with a wide range of stakeholders and are of the view that there needs to be a swift return to democracy.
Zimmer said they are also of the view that the interim government is not working towards elections.
As part of the delegation’s mission to obtain a precise picture of the political and socio-economic situation of the country, they met stakeholders from the interim government and the political sector, judiciary and civil society as well as visited EU funded projects.
