This is what we have come to expect from the irresponsible Voreqe Bhainimarama and the ig coupsters, a bunch of incompetent fools who HIJACKED the Nation without one of the persons involved having the minutest idea how to govern a country or figure out the basic economics to keep it functioning effectively.
The eyes bigger than the stomach attitude of the ig coupsters is a true indication of their incapabilities, because when they imposed their uselessness upon us and had direct access to the Nations coffers their too real inferiorities was revealed.
As with all the lies, blame and utter bullshit trotted out continuously by the ig, they haven’t achieved a single thing that they set out to do after depriving this Island Nation of democracy, all because Laisenia Qarase and his SDL party won the elections fairly for the second time and refused to deal with Bhainimarama and his cronies, who thought they had carte blanche over the functioning of the government because they had placed Mr Qarase in the position of Interim Prime Minister after the 2000 coup.
Bhainimarama and the ig coupsters have taken to the Nations coffers as if it was their rightful inheritance and wasted taxpayers money with their Economics 101 and extreme lack of accountability, yet cannot understand why they are criticised and laughed at by the larger community and the rest of the world as the following article points out.
Lack of stimulation in Fiji economic plan
Rowan Callick, Asia-Pacific editor | April 03, 2009
WHILE other countries introduce stimulus packages, Fiji’s military-installed Government has ordered all departments to cut spending by 50 per cent. And it is freezing all appointments.
The public service permanent secretary, Taina Tagicakibau, issued a statement instructing that “heads of ministries are to work smarter; to reorganise and review staffing in accordance with this instruction”. She said the public service commission “expects all departments to be vigorous in the effort to achieve the stipulated 50per cent reduction in operating budgets”.
The Fiji Council of Trade Unions said government job cuts were inevitable. General secretary Attar Singh said yesterday “the public service cannot sustain current staffing levels on a 50 per cent budget cut. People will go, and service, too, it’s as simple as that.”
Deposed prime minister Laisenia Qarase said: “If the reduction is effected to its full extent, then we can expect a drastic deterioration in the delivery of health and education services, and shortages of essential medicines.”
It would lead, he forecast, to the closure of some health centres and schools, “and the deterioration in the quality of essential public infrastructure and utilities. The flow-on effects on the lives of all citizens of Fiji, particularly the poor, will be disastrous.”
Fiji is facing a rapid contraction in its revenues because of the global downturn and international unease about the Government in Suva, led by military commander Frank Bainimarama.
