Neelz Singh, Lami

How is it that five people on remand managed to escape from the watch of Police officers at court house?

Because of this there are roadblocks and commuters have to suffer in traffic to reach their destination or call in late to work because others had failed in their duties.

How many officers were on duty and don’t tell me someone may be sleeping on the job!

May this festive season be a lookout for theft and burglary as we head into the Christmas season.

We hope that internal investigation brings justice and that some plans be implemented so that this will not happen in the near future.


Local players

Floyd Robinson, Suva

Are local-based players beginning to stamp their mark in terms of selection and performances within the Fiji Airways Flying Fijian squad?

Based on the performance of our national side against France, one can be sure that local-based players will not look back. Meanwhile, without a doubt, Semi Radradra, happens to be the best centre in world rugby.

There is much hope for our Flying Fijians at the next World Cup but let’s not become complacent because at the end of the day it is performance on the field which matters.

Our local based players are beginning to rise to the occasion and do not be surprised should several make the cut into our World Cup squad.


Christmas happenings

Spencer Robinson, Suva

It is that time of the year again where Christmas parties and farewells are high on the agenda.

While some events are still in the planning phase (with much anticipation), other events have eventuated with its memories much treasured for a lifetime.

It is in these types of occasions that we look back on our successes and failures with a view of doing better in future.

Farewells on the other hand is something that I always look forward to be a part of because acknowledgements and great leaning experiences are often shared which provides the basis of motivation to the audience.

One of the key messages that I appreciate and value from a recent farewell party was the fact that in any organisation be it small or big, human resources play a significant contribution its operation and the successful achievements of its goals and objectives.

John F Kennedy, the 35th President of the United states once shared “my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”

Let us all continue to be innovative and ambitious to make a difference to save the world be it on social responsibility, ecological balance, political participation and economic capability approach as embraced by a renowned internation- al organisation.

Overall, someone once said ‘we are not here to belittle one another but to help and support each other,’ as this is one of the great essence of life.


Dressing critics

Amenatave Yaconisau, Delainavesi
I disagree with Kirti Patel with her let-

ter on the above topic (Fiji Sun 29/11). Firstly, the dressing of Lynda Tabuya and Lenora Qereqeretabua dubbed the ‘Kadavu connection’ by this newspaper reflects their readiness and willingness

to contribute to nation building.
No doubt liberal times are here, but the way you dress and indeed what attire you wear reflects your personality. They say ‘you are what you eat’, I say you are what you wear.


Awful Opposition Attitudes

Tukai Lagonilakeba, Nadi

Opposition MP Bill Gavoka pleads with the FijiFirst party leadership to have compassion, inclusiveness, love and understanding of the Opposition plights.

But on the other hand, he disrespectfully calls our PM a dictator while his other members call him a liar apart from all other connotations, insinuations etcetera.

But if such is the attitude Mr Gavoka should expect no favour, co-operation or compromise from our PM, that is human nature.

They are hypocrites who will use Bible verses to suite their political agendas like the failed SODELPA politician Semesa Karavaki.

But very simply put they will only be making things worse for themselves because they are straining the already damaged vein pre and post-election with their political party.

Do not expect Government to take sides with you because they prioritise the implementation of the FijiFirst party manifesto first for the next four years.

This is the very reason our supporters voted them again to Government.

Christians from very young age will always hear and learn from their own Bible and church pulpit that if you practise giving no respect to others, you will certainly get no respect from them.

The Opposition leader Sitiveni Rabuka, who is a lay preacher from the Methodist Church, encourages and laughs away at those collective rude, disrespectful gestures and overtones from his Opposition team.

Fijians know the Opposition ploy where they will attack senselessly with their lies in Parliament for the next four years.

It is a known fact that Ro Teimumu Kepa could not control her team in Parliament during her term as Leader of the Opposition, but from this first week of our Parliament session we can all see that Mr Rabuka is just as weak an Opposition leader.

So how can we expect any of them to become our future PMs?

Respect for others is significantly important in all our MP’s pursue to achieve a common goal for our country, what is sad though our young Fijian children who watch our parliament sessions can always get it wrong.
