Bainimarama tells NZ to "butt out"

Fiji's interim prime minister Frank Bainimarama has spoken out for the first time about the eviction of New Zealand's High Commissioner a fortnight ago.

He told TVNZ's Sunday programme that the New Zealand government needs to "butt out".

"We've got to stop this. You've got to stop this bullying. If you bully people there will be some retaliation," he said.

"We're trying to send New Zealand a message. New Zealand has been telling us that they want to destroy our economy, destroy our judiciary and we want to tell New Zealand stop there," Bainimarama said.

He told Sunday's journalist Janet McIntyre he didn't care if his action has resulted in a decline of tourists.

"Well if there's going to be dwindling numbers because of that - so be it."

Franks' Cannery.

All they care about is stealing as much as they can while they can & not getting canned for it.

Seems like some of the fish are escaping the cannery in Levuka. Their opinions stink as well. E na macawa tu mai kemudou sa na gai leqa sara ga. Me da sa tucake ka doka na turaga na Tui Viti, Voreqe Bainimarama.

More of the same from TVNZ and the rest of the Kiwi establishment.

The way Janet MacIntyre droned on, you get the feeling NZ wants Fiji locked in some 1960s time warp; compliant natives, happy smiles, cool drinks, a tidy backyard for them to play in.

Totally banal and not a single mention of the ethnic dimension to the current impasse, just one long bleat about "democracy". Never mind that it's not a real democracy. Any kind will do.

Was there anything new in this interview? Zip, zero, zilch. Only that Frank is getting more irritable by the minute.

Men, and isn't the whole nation waiting with baited breath for the day when Netani Rika gets to publish his 4200 suppressed stories? Not!

4200 more pieces of nothing from Fiji's most useless newspaper. One big tamani sized doce, that Netani, editing one big daily non event.

Oh! How can this simple fact cannot be understood by Fiji's hollowest blubber.
Man, sa va qo sara tu ga na ulukau ni tamata qo. Drau bula.

How can a murderer like Frank call N.Z and Oz bullies ?

Mark, not this murder crap again. You keep being asked for the evidence and can't produce it. So why keep returning to the same old vomit? I thought you'd gone away to have a think about things and would return with a clear head. But as they say, life's a series of disappointments and then you die. Isa, au sa na qai mate vakadua ike.
