Following the A-G

Parmesh Prasad, Nausori

We had a laugh around the grog bowl last week. All of a sudden political parties had discovered Teachers!

Everyone from SODELPA to National Federation Party to even the half gone Fiji Labour Party had something to say about teachers and boy did the unionists come crawling out.

The Attorney-General should hold such sessions regularly because when he is out there with civil servants only then political parties and unionists remember them too.

But on a serious note I really admire the frankness with which the AG held the sessions with teachers around the country.

He and the Prime Minister make a formidable team. Keep it up sir.

Gutsy McGregor, Fiji Water Too

Tukai Lagonilakeba, Nadi

Not taking anything away from Floyd Mayweather, I salute and give credit to the Irishman, Conor McGregor, for accepting to fight in a boxing match that was different from his mixed martial arts boxing sport.

It was a risk and a gamble on his part.

Although beaten by an experienced and undefeated boxing tactician, it would have been a different story, if Mayweather would have accepted a challenge to fight McGregor in his own sport.

I do hope McGregor stays on in boxing, where he can become a world champion given the right guidance and tutorship.

They both deserve the big pay, but McGregor is a star in the making and he has all the attributes to make it big in the boxing world and become a champion.

A gutsy performance indeed from him. In a post match interview, Floyd Mayweather was drinking from a FIJI Water bottle shown live around the world.

Our very own Fijian mineral water did the trick.

That was the difference, the power, great marketing and exposure indeed. Well done to the FIJI Water family.

E-transport card

Joji O Toronibau, Tunuloa

While on an errand to Labasa, during the Vodafone Friendly North Festival, I decided to check my sibling in Rara housing, Lajonia.

I hitched onto a red bus that services the area and boastfully tapped my card on to the digital device.

Lo and behold the receipt showed $1.11 instead of $1.10 normal fare to Lajonia.

Must be for the elongated receipt size similar to the palm of your hand.

Just imagine when you compute all these 1c they will equate to quite a ransom come September.

Technology is quite good, but it comes with a liability as well.

It will be cool for the businessman and his crew.

What a world!

Picking bad pictures

Sovaia Pace, Sydney

The hatred some associated with the Fiji Times have for the Attorney-General is rather apparent. The pictures they publish of him are outright bad.

Take for example the one published last Saturday.

It seems like Mr A-G is a hunchback!

Is it an indication of the thinking of people in the background?

And if I am not wrong the picture published day after budget announcement was an old one.

A picture speaks a thousand words.

Keep it up

Wise Muavono, Lautoka

To Catherine Chong and the team at the Lautoka Hospital Accident and Emergency department, I’d like to commend your professionalism and dedication to your work.

Keep up the great work.

Thank you, Dan Urai, for visiting, when I was there under observation for a few hours on Friday evening (25/8).

My breathing complications vanished as soon as you walked in!

Politicising crime

Premila Prasad, Suva

Now we have started using crime rate as a political tool?

Trust the Fiji Times to provide a platform to politicians wanting to capitalise on something like this.

The Police Commissioner no doubt is doing a good job but he needs to get rid of lazy, corrupt and disgraceful officers.

I hope as announced by the Attorney-General in budget the internal investigations department of the Fiji Police Force is up and running and taking some lazy and corrupt officers to task.

The Police Commissioner should not cover up for bad cops.
