Spy Ship? Maybe Not

Remember how the Aussie media went into frenzy when the Yuan Wang 7 was in port at the same time as the HMAS Adelaide?

They called it a Chinese spy ship when the ship is widely known to be a research vessel.

In fact, the vessel regularly stops over in Suva, at the Kings Wharf, to refuel and restock.

We wonder what the story would be now that the Aussie Prime Minister is in town and a similar ship, the Yuan Wang 5, is in port to refuel and restock.

 

High-flyer no more?

Certain high-flying executive of an NGO may soon find herself sitting on the wing.

BTL has it that the board may soon advertise her post.

Her frequent and expensive expeditions abroad had been the subject of discussions by former and current board members.

She has steadfastly held on to the helm despite calls for someone else to take over.

She recently was on the political bandwagon campaigning for her better half. Both previously held senior positions elsewhere and became ‘closely’ involved.

Questions were raised about her conduct, being the face of an NGO that claims to be apolitical.

Word has it that she handed out campaign pamphlets to distribute before the elections.

 

Change in step

Members of a prominent dance group in the country have gone on to form a rival group. They have been holding auditions in Suva and are inviting their former dance mates to join them.

BTL understands the reason for the split is because the disgruntled dancers are not happy with the pay despite the numerous times they have been hired to perform in major events around the country.
