Prophecy

Simon Hazelman, Savusavu

Since prophecies are becoming a regular occurrence in our isles and seeing we have a prophet sitting in the opposition, Prophet Simon, would also like to share some of his predictions!

I prophesy that SODELPA will fare poorly at the next general elections so much that they will hardly be represented in Parliament!

I prophesy that its demise will pave the way for a new vibrant Fiji that the nation will prosper and become a force to be reckoned with in the region!

And my final prophecy is that the leaders of the group will find themselves scratching their heads wondering what had gone wrong with themselves and be in awe with how good things have turned out for the nation.

Daylight saving

Lalit Maharaj, Ba

Some say daylight saving is good, some say daylight saving is bad. I will not go into that argument.

One of my friends took his wife to the hospital and they were blessed with a healthy child.

The child was delivered at 12.30 midnight and the thing to note was that it was the time when Fiji was in daylight saving drive mode.

On the birth card the Doctor put the time as 12.30 and the day as Saturday.

If it was not for daylight saving time then it would have been 11.30 pm and Friday. My contention is that the child lost one whole day due to the daylight saving mode.

It would have been prudent of the doctor to indicate that it was daylight saving time.

I wonder as to how many more new born have fallen victims of this oversight when their time of birth is entered during the daylight saving period.

So, this particular child will live with a false birth certificate all his life.

What muck up!

Smoking zones

Wise Muavono, Lautoka

If smoking is prohibited in public places, can there be designated smoking zones. Either that or ask smokers not to exhale.

Parliamentary shambles

Epeli Rabua, Suva

Ratu Naiqama Lalabalavu’s two-year suspension from Parliament for derogatory remarks is our current Government’s intent on pushing through gender and party issues, rather than common sense.

That a Member of Parliament whom, hands down, won the votes of the majority of voters in Vanua Levu is not being privileged to represent his people in Fiji’s highest governing forum for that length of time is sacrilege.

We can only hope that better people will lead our beloved country in future.

7s offers

Tomasi Boginiso, Nasinu

Could we offer such handsome offers to the current Vodafone Fijian 7s players if they win our first Summer Olympics gold medal?

What could we do to satisfy our boys?

As New Zealand and Australia are grooming youngsters to be matured in 2016, are we preparing for the same goal?

Could we offer them houses, cars and maybe a sufficient amount of money and may be a part-time work of any sort that would have to continue after they retire from playing 7s?

Liberty

Amenatave Yaconisau, Suva

The public sense of satisfaction with our justice system must be brought to light.  It seems to me justice has been sacrificed somewhere although our Constitution guarantees personal liberty.

If immunity is granted to all people listed in 2013 Constitution  section 157(a-h) for their direct and indirect participation, I don’t see why such ‘justice’ can be applied  to others in similar situation. It is not a good deterrence if, on the one hand, we have absolute immunity for some, and a life sentence for others.

I therefore ask the mercy commission to grant total pardon to similar perpetrators who are still in jail. This can only be put right under section 119(3) of the 2013 Constitution.
