Is it true that the once busy Nadi-Malololailai Island flight route could be reopened?

Dickie Bird said a new player had confirmed applying to service two routes that were involved heavily with tourism.

Judging by the type of aircraft they have at the moment, the servicing of the eight-minute flight could mean a further boost to this tourism hotspot.

Pay rise?

Lobbying went on during Wednesday’s morning tea in Parliament. This was the work of certain members of parliament and according to Dickie Bird a former minister was involved as they looked for ways of pressuring Government to have a pay rise.

Seems the basic ordinary MP salary of $50,000 a year is not enough for some in the Opposition.

Principle

The mentioning of Government of National Unity by National Federation Party (NFP) leader Biman Prasad during his speech in parliament could mean many things.

Dickie Bird said one interesting question is whether Mr Prasad and his team are now willing to work with any political party.

Some of these parties have been associated with coups or takeovers of the past. If it does then it goes against the very principle they championed during the election campaign.
