Fiji Sun acknowledged

You have read this before in this newspaper and BTL about the shenanigans going on in SODELPA.

We were spot on with Ratu Naiqama Lalabalavu, predicting that he could return to contest the General Election. And he did. BTL thought he had passed on the baton to his son, general practitioner Dr Ratu Antonio Lalabalavu. But things began to change when colleague and fellow chief, Opposition leader Ro Teimumu Kepa decided to put on hold her retirement plans.

Now there are some senior party members, who previously were hostile against this newspaper, are saying the Fiji Sun has been right all along.

Is it a chiefly thing?

SODELPA will have the two high chiefs in Parliament jockeying for power if they get elected. Their decision not to retire from politics underscores the subtle battle for party leadership. It might look calm on the surface but don’t be fooled by it. There’s intense lobbying going on.

FAKE NEWS AGAIN

This photo is a sign of desperation by  the perpetrators who have gone to great lengths to produce this image. It’s fake news.

What emergency?

Seen on the Queens Highway in Nadi, a vehicle with flashing lights the same as Police, ambulance or National Fire Authority vehicles. On closer inspection it turned out to be a vehicle with the proud marking “Judicial” on the door.

The LTA now has most of its vehicles with flashing lights fitted and around Denarau there are a number of G-plated Ministry vehicle with lights usually placed on the dashboard.

If too many more departments, with no real need to break the speed limit for life or death emergencies or enforcement, are fitted with the flashing lights, they will become meaningless. They will be ignored hindering the work of  Police, Fire and ambulance.

At least flashing light non-emergency vehicles are not fitted with sirens as well (or maybe they are). The Police need to take a relook at the use of flashing lights and maybe limit their spread.
