Colonial ways

It is amazing that the British Colonial time rulers and administrators’ names are etched in stone, or rather in steel plates on streets names in the most revered residential area in Domain and Muanikau.

Names like Denison, Imthurn, Richards, Seymour, Duncan, Gordon, Le Hunte, O’Brien, Williamson and Pender dominate the names of these streets, roads and crescents.

Only a handful of local names could be read on these street names.

The sad part is one of the key figures of the late 1800s has his name misspelt.

At the corner of Domain and Denison it reads Ratu Cakabau Road after Ratu Seru Cakobau, the self styled Tui Viti, or King of Fiji.

 

Same old,same old

Oh wow. In her New Year’s message Opposition Leader Ro Teimumu said “May I suggest, this is not a time for finger pointing or recriminations. Those responsible for the mismanagement of disaster relief funds will have to face their demons at leisure.”

And how is that not finger pointing???

 

What’s a twit?

Question: What’s the difference between tweeting and twittering?

Answer: Could twittering be what twits do.
