Focus on School

Tomasi Boginiso, Nasinu

 

As the New Year Day celebration continues parents should now focus on their children’s school preparation.

As the yaqona, cigarettes and alcohol  are getting expensive they will be better off spending it on the child’s school preparation.

Most things are free but things that are not, you will no doubt want to have the best for your child.

There  are many moments for celebration and enjoyment  and there are times that you need to concentrate on your children’s wellbeing.

It would probably be the best time also to keep your children safe as there are many tragic moments happening around us.

Some families might have to reschedule their return home, especially with the cancellation of ship sailing and flights due to the weather forecast but it does not mean that you should continue celebrating. It is a better time for parenting duties.

Please parents be more responsible and let your child get the best that he or she may require. All the best for 2019.

 

Media Reporting

Jan Nissar, Carlton, NSW, Australia

 

The Fiji Sun has been accused, rightly or wrongly, of being a pro-government newspaper. My take is that this paper presents balanced political views including those by letter writers.

I do not believe the same can be said about the other major daily. My take on reading that paper online (when it was available free online) is that it is blatantly an anti-government paper. Point in case is its coverage of the 48- hour meeting saga.

It seemed to be providing a running commentary online on the issue fueling the false hopes and sentiments of the opposition operators.

The fact that the case being filed with the Court of Disputed Returns was very weak and baseless was lost on their editor.

During the election campaign, pages and pages were given to opposition parties to outline their policies every day.

I do not recall any such thing for Fiji First. Perhaps Fiji First declined their invitation to contribute.

They have decided not to publish any of my letters which are all anti-opposition.

The editor of that paper should reflect on the award he recently won (and from which he appears to have basked in glory for weeks on end in his paper) and ponder whether the award was deserved in respect of providing balanced political views.

 

Best political analysis 2018

Dharmendra Kumar, Suva

In my opinion Rajendra Prasad, the author of Tears in Paradise and Enslaved in Paradise has no doubt written the best post 2018  Fijian election analysis in the Fiji Sun dated January 6th , 2019.

Probably the biggest insight into Fijian politics , an article that needs to be read by everyone.

 

Dunn appointment

Simon Hazelman, Savusavu

There is no law that stipulates that FijiFirst cannot appoint one of their own to the position of Commissioner of Fiji Online Commission.

It is only appropriate that FijiFirst appoint its own to key positions, and for obvious reasons.

The only reason the National Federation Party (NFP) and Fiji Labour Party (FLP) is questioning the appointment is simply because it’s not one of theirs.

While I can understand NFP, who managed 33,515 votes at the 2018 elections, I certainly don’t get where FLP is coming from, especially that they only managed a miserable total of 2,800 votes at the recent elections.

Their bark has lost its spark and they ought to be put down!
