Remember  Rabuka
It seems some in the National Federation Party have got short memories or a way with words. This was after proudly promoting that they are the only political party not to be associated with those who were part of the country’s coups.
Well, Dickie Bird said in the 1999 general elections NFP formed a coalition with the Soqosoqo Vakavulewa Ni Taukei Party (SVT). That was led by Sitiveni Rabuka, the man who executed the 1987 coups.

Beddoes sour note
The Western Musician Entertainment Association handed a letter of support to Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama last week, for setting up regulations in the move to fight piracy.
Dickie Bird said all of a suddenly Mick Beddoes jumped on the bandwagon and convened a meeting yesterday where he promised a Ministry for Music, if his SODELPA party comes into power.
Some musicians told Dickie Bird the former musician from Sabeto did nothing for them throughout the years he was in parliament.

Social acceptance
Dickie Bird flew in last night with news that certain National Federation Party (NFP) candidates have chosen to discuss on social media their frustrations on the upcoming general elections.
This is where they get sympathy messages from their friends. Dickie Bird said from the tone of the conversation, it seems some have already conceded defeat.

Follow the Leaders
Some of the nominated candidates of the Fiji First Party should learn a thing or two from their party leader Voreqe Bainimarama and senior members like Aiyaz Sayed- Khaiyum and Jiko Luveni .
Dickie Bird said party supporters feel that some of the candidates need to be seen out campaigning at the same pace

Youth Champion
The nomination of Dr Joseph Veramu as Fiji First candidate has been welcomed by youth groups. Fondly known as Master Joe, he has been an unsung hero, actively working behind the scenes on the development of youths in the country. He had been doing it for over two decades.
Dickie Bird said Master Joe headed the Fiji Community Education Association (FCEA) where most youths who went through their training programme have now moved on and up in life.
