Beddoes: Rule of law must apply to everyone



An opinion piece by Mick Beddoes, of the United Coalition for a Democratic Fiji
 

When we fail to apply the rule of law equally to every citizen our moral & ethical compass as a society fails with it.    

                          
On May 1st Mr Chaudhry will be sentenced and if it involves a custodial term then he will be the second of our democratically elected Prime Ministers to be sent to prison for offences that can only be described as misdemeanors when we compare it to the capital offences committed by the usurpers of our democracy in 1987, 2000 and 2006.



Speight serving time - but what of others.
Both of our former Prime Ministers have already been disqualified from participating in the 2014 elections as a direct consequence of their convictions and Mr Qarase has already served his time. Yet two of their 3 usurpers, not only remain free, they are eligible to contest the general election that has been denied to the two Prime Ministers they over threw.



The third usurper, a civilian, was charged and sentenced to death, which was the penalty for treason at the time. His life was spared when the death penalty was removed for capital crimes by parliament and George Speight is still serving his life sentence for his part in the 2000 coup.




On the other hand the other two usurpers of our democracy,
Qarase: Sent to jail by regime.
both former military commanders, remain free and despite being responsible for the overthrow of the 1987 and 2006 parliaments, both of them are eligible to contest the 2014 elections, because of the immunity they enjoy which protects them from having to ‘face up’ to any criminal charges for carrying out coups and over throwing the elected governments of the people in 1987 and 2006.



If the rule of law is supposedly applied equally to all, why is George Speight in prison while the 2 other coup leaders are free and able to contest elections? What was different about the 2000 coup from the 1987 and 2006 coups? How have we justified such an unfair application of the rule of law in this instant?




How can we as a society, think that it is somehow fair and just to punish our democratically elected leaders as harshly as we have done for their misdemeanors, which are unrelated to their term in office, while at the same time remain silent and just accept the imposition by the usurpers of a blanket immunity that protects them not only from the capital offences they committed against the state, the constitution and the people in the past, but which extends to crimes they are yet to commit in the future? 

Chaudhry: Waiting sentence.
And if that is not enough, we even give them the freedom to take part in general elections, without having answered for their crimes.



There is something fundamentally wrong with us a society if we believe it’s ok to have the usurpers of our democracy, elected to our House of Representatives, where they can help make laws and dispense justice to the very people whose livelihoods, rights and freedoms they abused and suppressed, while all the time being protected from prosecution for overthrowing our previous parliaments. 



Mr Qarase and Mr Chaudhry are now disqualified from contesting elections for their misdemeanors; every other citizen who is registered to vote and eligible to contest the elections is subject to disqualification for various offences as stated in Sec 56 of the 2013 constitution.  It is only the usurpers of our democracy and those other citizens who have aided and arbited them in the removal of our elected governments who will not face the kind of scrutiny that other citizens will be subjected to because they enjoy immunity from prosecution. 

This is what the regime means about everyone being equal.



The rule of law must apply equally to everyone from the law abiding citizen, the common thief to coup leaders and Presidents. But so long as we keep rewarding the wrong doers and try to make excuses for their actions as being necessary then we fail to apply the rule of law as we are obliged to do and consequently our moral & ethical compass as a society fails with it.



‘History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people’. Dr Martin Luther King Jr

  6. All Hail BainimaramaApril 20, 2014 at 1:41 PM

    Just remind everyone again in the cyber community how Bainimarama and his cronies came to power.

    THE REGIME CAME TO POWER THROUGH THE BARREL OF THE GUN USING LIES AND HYPOCRISY USING THE AGING PRESIDENT TO COMMIT TREASON AND NOW BAINIMARAMA IS ACRAED OF THE AFTERMATH OF HID LEADERSHIP BECAUSE HE KNOWS THAT HE DOES NOT HAVE A POWER BASE TO ASSURE HIS VICTORY.

    HE IS VERY SCARED BECAUSE DEMOCRACY WILL GONNA PUT HIM IN JAIL LIKE SPATE.

    NOW TOVATA AND BUREBASAGA ARE MOBILIZING THEIR SUPPORTERS AND KUBUNA ALSO.

    MY ADVISE TO BAI AND KHAI TO TAKE IT AS A MEN WHEN LOSING THIS ELECTION AND BE READY FOR NABORO.

  7. WHY KHAIHUM MUST RESIGN

    By VICTOR LAL
    (More details to follow)
    (1) In 2007 Bainimarama had announced that the electoral system would be changed to abolish the race-based constituencies and that elections would be held in 2010;
    (2) He had lied he won't stand for elections;
    (3) On 11 November 2009 Khaiyum had registered the FijiFirst domain name for Bainimarama but they cancelled the promised election;
    (4) On 17 Janaury 2014 Bainimarama said he will soon announce the formation of his political party to contest the election;
    (5) On 21 January 2014 Khaiyum extended the FijiFirst domain for Bainimarama in preparation for September 2014 general election;
    (6) Khaiyum gave Nanuku Resort & Spa's post box code at Pacific Harbour - P O Box 555 - as proposed party's;
    (7) The e-mail fijifirst2014@gmail.com has the Fiji flag and the Coat of Arms;
    (8) The Phone Number +679 3320016 is Khaiyum's unlisted phone number
    MINISTER FOR ELECTIONS & A-G, AIYAZ SAYED KHAIYUM, HAS VIOLATED HIS OWN POLITICAL PARTIES DECREE NO 4 (2013) BY EXTENDING THE DOMAIN NAME IN JANUARY 2014 & ADDING THE E-MAIL ADDRESS AS FIJIFIRST2014@GMAIL.COM WHEN THE PROPOSED FIJIFIRST PARTY IS YET TO BE REGISTERED & APPROVED!

  11. I could recall the last elections, SDL was in power and LQ as PM, they were campaigning whilst still as PM and Cabinet Ministers,they were using Govt Pajeros.This was highlighted in the media especially the FJ Times and FJ Sun. They were arrogant,working as if above the law,as if they cant be removed BY FORCE,now its the other way around.Lets hope they learn something from this.Those swearing at PM were monetary beneficiaries of the SDL Govt.

  13. Bainimarama does not have quality, character and the brain to lead a democratic nation.

    All his followers are scared as me move towards election.

    We understand this as people at one stage were empowered illegally to do as required by the Dictator. Now the Dictator is slowly losing his power and a s a result those soldiers and people who do not have anything (nothing) are scared of losing their fame, limelight and centre stage.

    These are people who normally do not think about the welfare of their children.

    They are beginning to swear and spread lies about the past government in order shift the blame on old politicians.

    Vote for the protection of our national identity and christian values ........Vote SODELPA.

    After the election Bai and Khai will be sent to Naboro for violation of Human Rights and corruptions.

    Those who are still supporting Bainimarama are doing so because they have gained financially and directly or indirectly through dubious ways.

    The hall mark of this regime is corruption, nepotism, cover up etc How come his daughter became a CEO without experience and a degree?

    He free his brother in law fron Korovou?

    His older brother posted to Malaysia after being rejected by Britain.

    He is not fit to be a leader.

  17. Thank you Mick. We applaud your principled stand for the truth. Please organise meetings to agree on a plan of action to get this regime to stand aside. We cannot effort to trust them to conduct a free and fair election. Many of us prepared to meet with you and march with you. We cannot afford to continue allowing Voreqe, Saiyad and company to dictate to us what is right and wrong. I appeal again to all our citizens who value their rights and freedoms. Please let us unite and demand our freedoms and God-given rights. It will be too late to protest after election results are announced. Lets stand up as a nation NOW. Peaceful protests, strategic actions, and our love for God and for one another will help us overcome this sad and tragic period in our history. Lets ACT NOW MICK. Its now or never.

  25. Birds of the same feathers flock together.

    Those who condoned corruption, murder of innocent people, under the table deal, etc are the hallmark of this regime.

    Tell me any leader of this nation who tries to remove the rights of the indigenous people of this country?

    Not even FLP and NFP will ever do this ONLY the FIJI FIRST PARTY.

    First in the Bai/Khai 's constitution where they try to dilute our traditional culture which protected by the UN as ratified by Fiji.

    Second he introduced the Toppers Scholarship to replace the FAB scholarship to make the kai Viti looked stupid in front of all races in Fiji.

    Third he strategically remove the Bose Levu Vakaturaga so that the power base of the Fijian people will be de-stablished and this is against the UN declaration of the Rights of the indigenous peoples.

    He forced the Land Bank to especially make land available to foreign investors. The worst can be seen in Nawailevu Bauxite Mining belong to the corrupt Chinese investors and the land owners have been complaining since day one. To make it worse these investors they paid local authorities to shut their mouth on environmental issues.

    Kai Viti ni kakua ni digitaka na matanitu oqo.

    This is the worst eve government because it forced itself through the barrel of the gun.

  26. @Tomasi's blog sounds like QORVIS.

    This is what QORVIS is trying to do.

    QORVIS is trying to incite insurrection and violence in the streets SO THAT BAI CAN HAVE THE EXCUSE OF ANOTHER COUP.

    Right now, QORVIS is a bit lost.

    As we get closer to the election QORVIS will cause some bombings etc and will blame the people
    (JUST LIKE THEY DO IT BACK HOME IN AMERICA).

    SO THAT THERE IS A REASON FOR BAINIMARAMA TO DO ANOTHER COUP.

    So I suggest to all Fijians, lets try and fight the Election according to the rules.
    NO INSURRECTION NOW PLEASE...because it will only give Bai another excuse to take over the government again.

  38. 4:41 AM, he's right. Your support of "the government of the day", aka the treasonous, illegal dictatorship of the Bainimarama Captivity, makes you a traitor, and treason is worse than any of the accusations you've lodged against the others.

  42. Anon 8:16, Mick has been standing against this illegal regime all along. If you'd get your nose out of Bainimarama's arse every once in a while, you'd know that.

    Is Bainimarama one of the "young people" you think should be running the show, old gaffer?

    If the people are fed up with Mick, as you say, then why not have the electuons sooner rather than later and a level playing field? Why disqualify the main opposition leaders before the campaign even begins, especially since they aren't murderers and traitors, unlike some we could mention.

  47. Sorry, Kua Ni Rere, but Tomasi is right, and for all of the reasons Just Situational Logic stated days ago. Did you miss that posting?

    We're not talking bombs and armed insurrection . . . yet. But we are saying that Bainimarama is already stealing the election, and so this is the time to demonstrate, not after they've been stolen.

    Waiting until after Bainimarama steals the election will be too late. He'll be able to masquerade more convincingly as a legitimate government then, and with the acquiesence of other governments.

    Taking Semi Meo's pollyanna approach when it's already obvious the elections will be rigged isn't a sensible approach.

    ReplyDelete
  48. It's not just how people vote. Bainimarama could lose by a landslide, but if his controlled media lies, as usual, and says he WON by a landslide, then what can we do?

    The same thing we can do now, which is fight. And that's the one thing it will take. Yet we sit and do nothing. And it will only be harder to do anything after Bainimarama's regime claims he won by a landslide.

  49. I think Fiji will do well under a woman leader. But who? In the 70's Argentina, Brazil n Chile were ruled by hard lined men. Now their leaders are women. Only a woman leader can calm and change fiji society mindset. Fiji needs a period of calm and rebuilding with good governance. Not men / opportunists lurking for a chance to grab and fill pockets under guise of democracy.

  58. You don't ask a coup leader whether the military takeover he staged successfully will be the last one - because he'll never give you a frank (excuse the pun) answer.

    Rabuka lamented after the 1999 SVT elections loss to the NFP that his coup produced no winners because his constitution did not protect his 1987 objectives.

    The question which should have been posed to him post 1997 constitution parliamentary consensus was whether it would take us along a path that won't necessitate another military coup.

    In hindsight we now know that the 1997 constitution was never coup proof with the emergence of another treasonous commander in Bainimarama who spelled the end of it.

    In anger, Bainimarama trashed Rabuka's 1997 constitution after the SDL won a Court Of Appeal ruling stating Bainimarama's actions in 2006 was illegal and that his subsequent rule was treasonous insofar as the 1997 constitution was concerned.

    We are now at another juncture in treason history where the same question of whether he thinks the 2006 military coup will be the last one? This is the question on everyone's mind before the elections and under his terms through his so-called, Peoples constitution.

    Rabuka is already quoted in an interview on NZTV that there will be another coup if Bainimarama does not get his way with the election results.

    Even if Bainimarama wins, he should be also concerned that his constitution will be trashed in future given the trend in Fiji by discontent future military commanders.

  59. Hooray to Mick Beddoes for stating the obvious in relation to inequalities under the law and pointing out the treasonous wolves who continue to parade as sheep amongst our midst.

    Mick's reminder to Fiji that this regime is illegal and must face justice can be compared to a remarkable fairy tale created by Dutchman, Hans Andersen called, The Emperor's New Clothes".

    Though the story is based on two swindler's manipulating the vanity of the Emperor by creating an invisible robe. It takes a child to shout out that the Emperor had no clothes.

    There is a deep lesson for everyone in society who turns a blind eye to injustices because of self interests or self preservation.

    Since 2006, the Bainmarama propaganda machine has belted out the so called virtues of a benevolent dictator. His closest confidantes have conveniently turned a blind eye to his indiscretions. To dissent would result in similar drastic outcomes as Driti, Mara and the hundreds who were arrested,tortured and even driven out of Fiji.

    Thank you Mick, for taking the Fiji public out of the Bainimarama stupor of free bus fares, free lunch, government(tax payers)grants for special election underpinned projects. Thank you for saying in public what most of us cannot do..calling Bainimarama's new election garb as a fake and not realistic.

  72. To Anon Apr 21 3:18pm:


    This is called an ad hominem attack. You can't argue against the statement made by Mick because you know it is the truth, so instead you try to attack the person making the argument.

    You are telling readers to ask Mick about his personal life. Why don't you ask him yourself. His phone number is on his website mickbeddoes.com , and of course in the phone book. Alternatively, you can call up his ex-wife and ask her. Kerry's number is in the phone book too. Or you can call up their children and ask them as well.
    In fact, these are personal family matters, but if you want to bring them up in an attempt to smear someone, then have the balls to talk the the people involved directly first.
    Mick and Kerry were divorced over a decade ago. They had adult children at the time.

    Some years after the separation, Mick fell in love again, as did Kerry. They both have partners and are happy and there is no ill will between them, or their children. In fact both couples are friendly with each other, and occasionally spend time together with their children.

    Mick and Kerry were happily married for 2 decades and raised two great kids in a happy family. Everyone changes over time, and I suppose they drifted apart as sometimes happens unfortunately. That is between them. For you to try and use that as a smear tool just paints a worse picture of your and your fijifirst party.

    You also brought up an issue of NBF loan. I don't know anything about that, but if you could please provide, evidence, I would love to see it. NBF was a bank and all banks give loans... NBF gave tens of thousands of loans over the years, only a minority of these were corrupt/politically motivated. Did you know that Westpac/ANZ/BSP give loans even today. That must amaze you eh? Let me tell you another secret... many thousands of loans provided by those banks go into default as well. People fail to pay, thats normal, and in fact banks expect this.

    There was no problem with giving out loans. The only problem was NBF giving out loans to companies that it knew couldn't pay them back. This was done due to political pressure by the elite at the time (SVT cronies). Please show me your proof that any loan was given to mick or his companies through "crooked" or "corrupt" means.

  73. It appears that this coming election will be rigged. Bainimarama knows that his party still cannot win even if the election decrees still favour him and Khaiyum.

    Qarase's SDL Government was ousted because of alleged corruptions which still have not been proven even in this Kangaroo/Banana court where Khaiyum is still the supreme unjust Superior Judge.

    Even after their illegal win come September, Bainimarama's government will still be as corrupt or even more corrupt than it is now.

    So, be ready for a very very rough ride folks! But I pray and hope that I am wrong.

  74. This website is about exchanging news that is suppressed by the regime and views about how to restore democracy to Fiji. When it becomes about anything other than that, it only serves the regime goals of subverting, distracting, dividing and confusing us, the democratic opposition.

    As for ad hominem attacks against Bainimarama, I, too, would prefer attacks against the man's ideas and policies, such as his capital treason, rather than attacks against the man himself, which is just too easy a target.

  86. Hi Mick. Agree with most of what you say. The problem in Fiji has been that our society has always been pretty dumb. If you look at politics in the last 20 years our decisions as a nation have always been about race. Race is the reason why Fiji is where it is today. As a nation we have never understood true democracy. We have also failed to see our commonalities as human beings and instead have focused on what is different about us. That is Fiji's ache-lies heal.Politics and the running of the nation has to be race blind color blind and totally merit based. Until we do this we will be doomed to coups and more coups.

  102. The principle of command responsibility is now enshrined in international law. The video of torture is there. I've seen it, and so have you. The thugs filmed torturing prisoners came from Bainimarama's personal bodyguard. He even intervened personally to speak publically in their support. Despite being filmed and identified repeatedly on this website, the perpetrators were never arrested. The police are ultimately under Bainimarama's control. They and the other "security forces" have been accused of numerous acts of brutality, up to and including deaths in custody and the amputation of a prisoner's foot. Some are documented. Several others are supported by mutliple testimonies the regime has never controverted.

    But every man deserves his day in court. Let Bainimarama answer for his crimes in criminal court, just as each of his supporters should answer for the crime of treason.

  115. I don't agree with coup. It is cowards way of pushing ones political agenda and by passing polls.

    However who will throw first stone at Mr Bainimarama?

    Not Qarese because he is a product of coup. Not Chaudhary because he was with Bainimarama in the present dilemma Fiji is facing.

    And definitely not Beddoes because his mouth was shut when High Court ordered Qarese to step down and give the power back to Chaudhary.

    Some good things have come out of the present government including new voting system and getting rid of senate. We need to bring back Council of Chiefs whose role would be to lobby for I-Taukei rights, legislation to protect I-Taukei land and at least 25 scholarships given to I-Taukei students from each province apart from those who qualify under present scheme.

    My view is generally the grass root people from all community want to live side by side in peace like they have been doing in past 100 years.

    Fijians need to put aside their differences and do what is best for Fiji and in doing so ensure I-Taukei rights are paramount and they are not left behind.

  117. THE UN has joined a growing chorus of voices expressing pleasure at Fiji's efforts to return to parliamentary democracy by September.

    And the UN is willing to help where necessary but will wait for the Fiji Government to make its request, says Fiji's permanent representative to the United Nations, Peter Thomson.

    His comments came as he leads the UNFPA/UNDP/UNOPS executive board on their historic first visit to Fiji and the Pacific region this week.

    Although the visit is not to discuss the elections specifically, Mr Thomson did take time to convey the views of the 193-country strong United Nations.

    "As far as the UN is concerned - the Fiji Government's attitude and certainly my attitude as the permanent representative has been that all our rights and responsibilities have been intact throughout this period in which Fiji has been going through its reforms," he said.

    "Obviously everybody is very glad to observe the Fiji roadmap was very closely followed all the way through and elections are now coming up in September as promised.

    "So the mood generally at the UN is one of great satisfaction that Fiji is about to have its elections."

    He said the UN had a political affairs office whose purpose was to assist countries in the build-up to election.

    "It is part of the UN office's remit to assist in any way but it is up to the Fiji Government to request the assistance and there have been various requests along the way to help get us to where we are now.

    "There's a Department of Political Affairs within the United Nations that goes around and helps countries prepare for elections and we have been availing ourselves of that."

    This latest endorsement of the democratisation process comes after regional powerhouses Australia and New Zealand announced a relaxing of sanctions against Fiji and praised Fiji for working toward election earlier this year.

    "From our perspective in New York everything is being done the right way," Mr Thomson said.

    "We have a date for elections, the political parties are now campaigning, we have a supervisor of elections in place and negotiations are being done on who will be the observers for the elections."

    The point is that he was RFMF commander for many years, yet never once did he take affirmative steps to redress the enormous racial disparity in the make-up of the RFMF. He made no attempts to recruit kaidia into the ranks. He also passed up his only kaidia flag officer when he selected his successor as commander, even though the officer had seniority.

    The NBF documents are not lost. The bank records still exist in Suva. Perhaps Victor Lal can tap his informants and settle this issue once and for all.

    I have lived in Nadi all my life, and have never seen those striking workers you are talking about. I can tell you one thing though, that incident happened while there was still rule of law in Fiji (20yrs ago), and the workers had full access to the law. They had the right to air their grievances, and the company had the right to respond. That's justice and the rule of law. On the contrary, Bainimarama and his govt won't allow workers to go on strike in this day and age. Try talking to workers in the tourism industry today and they'll tell you how much "rights" they have.

    Mick Beddoes sold his stake in Coral Sun more than a decade ago. He has zero interest in the business. However, even if he was still the owner or CEO, what the hell would loud music on the bus have to do with the opinion/article we are commenting on.


    Pretty impressive of Mick Beddoes if all the dirt you can drag up about him involves issues from decades ago, and buses breaking down. Compare these irrelevant issues to the treason, murder, and dictatorship of your dear leader. Incredible.

  145. yeah stimi ni mellow sounds like some self-righteous prick. Judgmental and self obsessed. who cares if people don't like Mick Beddoes, why does that immediately make them army or regime trolls? Pretty stupid logic.

    ReplyDelete
  146. The logic I don't understand is the argument that Stima Ni Meli isn't entitled to his views, but his critics are.

    Also, I don't see how he's like Rajend Naidu. Rajend is a publicity seeker. Stima Ni Meli obvioisly isn't, or he wouldn't be using a pseudonym.

    Finally, notice how regime trolls insist on their right to free speech even whilst they deny it to all regime critics? Seems like the height of hypocrisy to me.

    No one is saying they can't post here. But when they do, they shouldn't be surprised when someone outs them as a regime troll.

    Glad that stick it meli outed himself. Saves us the trouble of pointing out that he's a traitor.

  149. To micks uncle and anons:

    You question why I paint you as a regime troll just because you post an opinion contrary to my own.

    Well the answer is quite simple.

    If you had a legitimate argument against the opinion article we are commenting on, then I could see that perhaps you had legitimate reason to go against him, but you have not done so.

    You have posted no rebuttal whatsoever against Micks opinion. Instead, all I see here is that you are throwing around wild accusations that have nothing to do with the article.

    Mick is one of only a handful of people willing to stick their neck out and take a risk for his beliefs, and for that he gets what... someone complaining about loud music on a bus and family issues from a decade ago?

    No, no reasonable opponent of Mick would do that... after all, he is fighting for OUR right to democracy.

    Therefore, I can only assume that you are a mindless drone hired to smear political opponents. So then who is Mick a threat to?... certainly not SODELPA, FLP, or NFP, all of whom would support this opinion article. That leaves our favourite party FIJIFIRST... of which I believe you to be a stooge.

    By the way, I don't need to post under other names to support my comments. I can articulate my arguments myself thank you very much.

    ReplyDelete
  150. Stima

    Mick fighting for our rights? Really!! five months away from election and fat mick pops up from hibernation and gives an opinion when he knows really well that it would mean nothing. just to make some people happy and get a sodelpa ticket. You must be wearing blinkers man.

    ReplyDelete
  151. The fact that you're regime trolls -- or perhaps a single troll posting multiple, repetitious comments -- is belied by the infantile nature of your postings.

    And traitor to whom? Why, the people and nation of Fiji, of course! You're supporting the traitors who overthrew our democratically elected, constitutional government. That makes you accessories after the fact to an act of treason. That means you're a traitor.

    Treason has no statute of limitations. Treason is normally considered a capital offense, typically punished through death by hanging.

    Do you suppose THAT is why Fiji First is having so much trouble collecting signatures for membership?

    But you're not really worried about being hanged for treason, are you! Or ARE you? Too frightened to post under your real name? That's the real irony to your use of pseudonyms.

    I hope you got that.

    ReplyDelete
  152. anon8.49pm...so sometimes you are stick it meli, other times anon...pseudonyms? yet you call me frightened to use my real name...hypocrite?
    I am really enjoying your tirade I must admit, as you get your sapo in knots. Mark has seen it fit to delete much of my contribution so its a little hard to say much here as Mark ensures the blog is skewered towards his own personal views. So much for fighting for freedom of speech, etc. Another hypocrite.
    Its really quite amazing that you make me to be out to be traitor etc - all from the simple fact I find fat Mick detestable. Wow. You should be a fortune teller, psychologist or palm reader. For your information, I don't belong to the army, don't support the army and have no links whatsoever. I am a former Fiji resident and find what has happened in Fiji, sad. But I also find perennial fence sitters and opportunistic politicians really the worst kind. Simple. So call me a regime troll all you want. You reckon my contributions are infantile, what of your name calling, boy?

  153. Hard to say who is more paranoid -- The Prophet, or Mick's Uncle/Stick It Meli/Hobbit/Name Caller/etc. at 12:26?

    The Prophet sees nanobots in the air we breathe, but Name Caller seems to think "Mark" (Marc Edge?) is also Stima Ni Meli, the anonymous poster, AND the secret webmaster of Coup 4.5!

    Maybe they're both the same, just suffering from multiple personality disorder. That would explain a lot. Probably not the first time a regime troll is also a paranoid schizophrenic.

    ReplyDelete
  154. oi boy5.37am, the Mark we are referring to is the owner of the blog, mark "the Great" Manning who continually deletes contributions which do not support his agenda. Where did you get Marc Edge from? maybe you are him, posing as Stick ni Meli or psycho Meli perhaps. Getting hot under the collar are we? Untwist your sapo, that might help for starters. Maybe you are Frankies son, Meli pretending to be a "patriot" and accusing others of being traitors. Reverse psychology perhaps or multiple personality order you accuse others of. Please decide if you can, or do we need to decide for you. But go on, untwist the sapo, the world will be clearer and make you less judgmental.As I said before, i do enjoy your tirades.

    ReplyDelete
  155. Name caller at 12:26 AM, etc., it doesn't take a fortune teller to deduce that someone who supports treason is a traitor.

    Also, I don't care that you're not attracted to Mick Beddoes. You sound like a jilted lover.

    You say that what has happened to Fiji is sad. Yet, your remarks consist almost exclusively of silly, nonsubstantive and unsubstantiated ad hominem attacks on Mick, who, despite what you say about being absent or a fence-sitter, has actually been for years one of the most vocal critics of the regime.

    Speaking of fence-sitting, you say you're "hardly" an RFMF supporter but can't seem to summon a word of criticism against the thugs holding us hostage. Instead you save all of your vitriol for one of the few politicians here with the courage to stand up against them.

    You proudly refer to yourself as a "regime troll ruler" whilst trying to shout down a regime critic. Then you wonder why anyone should think you might be a regime troll. Hmmm, any clue? Stima Ni Meli stated the case very well. Sorry so much of it went over your head.

    You say I'm a hypocrite for posting anonymously. I've no objection to your choosing anonymity or using a pseudonym. I do find it ironic, though, when regime supporters insist on their right to free speech whilst denying it to everyone else. I also find it ironic for you to fear using your own name even whilst you're posting abroad in support of Fiji's dictatorship, but at the same time you put down anyone living under the thumb of the dictatorship who chooses to do the same. Again, sorry if you're unable to appreciate the rich irony.

    You say you're entitled to your views, but you don't seem to accept that Stima Ni Meli is also entitled to his own.

    You say I should be a fortune teller, but you're the one who's decided I'm "stick it meli". You also call me "boy", although I never told you my gender. (Or are boys simply your sexual preference?) Far from debunking my statement about the infantile nature of your postings, it redoundingly confirmed it.

    I don't know if you're a paranoid schizophrenic, as has been suggested, but it doesn't take a fortune teller, palmist or psychiatrist to see that you clearly are a confused, emotionally disturbed, and immature individual.

  156. mick's favorite nephewApril 26, 2014 at 4:05 PM

    boyo or girlyboy@11.50amm...so anyone against fat micko is obviously a traitor and guilty of treason. You are so self righteous and up yourself, the truth does not matter. But why let the truth stand in the way of a good story. Keep up the tirade. You are starting to sound pretty hysterical here...haha. Where have I ever said I support the regime? By your small minded warped thinking, anyone against fat mick must be pro-regime. Yeahs its the if you are not for us, you must be against us mentality. Get over yourself, man or woman or something.

    I do enjoy your morning hysterics, freedom fighter or whatever. Call me a jilted lover of Mick? Haha, I have never met or ever seen the man, but I do know he is just another cunning, opportunistic pollie when I see one. Interesting how you are posting as anon to support yourself, stima. Clear as day here. Learnt well from the Grand Pretender, Rajend himself. Perhaps you are him, or her or something.
    Where have I said you should not be allowed to air your views? talk about paranoid, you must be scared of your own shadows.

    You say.. "but at the same time you put down anyone living under the thumb of the dictatorship who chooses to do the same". wow I put down fat mick and stima and thats everyone and anyone. Prone to exaggeration are we?
    I guess thats what happens when you cloud your mind with self righteousness and illusions of grandeur, you talk yourself silly.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Haha, Anon @ 11:50 AM, good answer to our new super hero, Chameleon Man.

    Mick's favourite nephew sounds like the real fence-sitter here.

    Mick has courageously stood up against this regime for years. By contrast, this guy can't even decide whose side he's on. All he knows is that he "detests" "fat" Mick, someone he's never met or even seen.

    Oh yeah, and that Mark Manning is the blog administrator who keeps deleting his "contributions".

    I guess that makes me Rajend Naidu, apparently another arch-nemesis and super villain foe of Chameleon Man.

    No paranoia here!

    ReplyDelete
  158. No, Chameleon Guy, being against Mick Beddoes doesn't automatically make you a traitor and guilty of treason. Supporting traitors makes you guilty of treason.

    Rather than say I never let truth stand in the way of a good story, why not simply explain which of my statements is incorrect and how, if you can?

    You never said "I support the regime", but you call yourself "regime troll ruler" and certainly fit the bill for all of the reasons Stima Ni Meli stated.

    As for tirade and hysteria, well, it seems to me that you're the one throwing the wild accusations around, posting as multiple personalities, and ranting about Mick, Mark, Stima, and Rajend as detestable, opportunistic, cunning, hysterical, paranoid, etc., without explaining why or how. All I'm doing is answering your statements point-by-point, usually with examples drawn from your own statements.

    Far from twisting my sapo in knots, what we're seeing is the unraveling of your twisted arguments.

    Where did you say we shouldn't be allowed to air our views? Simply look at how you responded when Stima Ni Meli aired his views. Your "rebuttal" was to call him a dickhead, self-righteous prick, boy . . . Rather than give a reasoned response, your multiple replies were emotional, abusive, and childish.

    I'm not any of the individuals you accuse me of being. I was puzzled why you keep guessing as to my identity. Then I realised why: you're flailing. You're flailing for an effective way to counter my arguments, but you can't find one. Your preferred method is to stoop to ad hominem attacks, but you don't know who I am, so you can't insult me on the basis of my physique, mock my record, or slander my spouse. How frustrating that must be for you!

    So, apparently the best you can do is to criticise me for maintaining my anonymity. That doesn't mean you are putting down "anyone and everyone", as you put it, but it IS a putdown of all of us in Fiji who choose to maintain anonymity.

    Anonymity is one of the few tactical advantages we have against a regime that has used its monopoly of violence to steal our government and violate our rights. If it knew my identity, a truck of goons would be showing up at my gate late this evening, and I might never see the morrow.

    What's YOUR excuse, posting from the safety of Horowenua or wherever? What is it you fear, except being held to account for the thoughts you cannot defend?

    ReplyDelete
  159. Horowhenua is not in Brisbane, I did say I was in Brisbane, Get some geography lessons quick.

    I never said I am a regime support yet you continue to accuse me of being one, simply on the basis that I criticise Mick... so I thought I might as well call myself one just to satisfy you. Probably the only satisfaction you get apart from self massaging your ego. Now thats in poor form.

    You do like to twist words here don't you?. Case in point...anyone and everyone...I guess you hate it when you are caught lying and then trying to justify yourself. How does "you" suddenly becomes "all of us In Fiji" . wow. Trying to garner support here are we? Illusions of grandeur perhaps. Grandstanding maybe. You would make any rajend proud.

    No I am interested in attacking your spouse. Though i am seriously against same sex marriage.

    Seriously, why would I get frustrated about conjuring dirt about you? I got so many better things to do, like brushing up on my geography lessons then reading up about the cuisine variations of Horowhenua.

    I do enjoy the morning laugh as I read the contributions of those seriously frustrated with me. Wow, get a life man, elephant or something. I am flattered with the attention and hatred. Amazing for these freedom fighters.
    Seriously elephant God...I assume your uncle's a frog god. and your auntie's a goat God. So Stima become anon then became elephant God. Now thats an amazing transformation. All the while spewing hate and judgment. And fearing his/ her/ elephant shadows. And yet you accuse me of changing names. Hypocrite?

  164. For your information, I have been posting under my name on this blogsite for years. I am not Stima Ni Meli.

    First you object to people posting anonymously, but when they use their names you deprecate that too.

    Rather than attacking the meaning of my name, why don't you just man up instead and address my arguments?

    ReplyDelete
  165. Chameleon Man is the one who has been spewing hatred and judgment here. Now he "explains" that he was lying when he called himself a regime troll and only did it to satisfy his detractors.

    He calls Mick an opportunist and Rajend the Great Pretender, but what does this make HIM?

    It saddens me that however much God hates liars, some seem to consider lying a small thing.

    I'm convinced that Fiji will never progress so long as Fijians choose to listen to liars.

  166. Bula to all!

    It seems a lot of work was put into the creation of this Blog page - but the question that needs asking is this:

    "Has this ACHIEVED anything so far or is it full of cowards shouting war from behind the safety of the internet?"

    I am not in favour of any party and am not voting either because the election's going to be a field day for ALL the crooks this country has - past and present.

    The scary part begins when old farts start putting pen to paper, especially when they had their chance at the big game but didn't do anything worthwhile (except maybe "fill it up")...pretty much the same as is being done world over.

    I knew from the the first day I visited this blogsite that this page was being run by SODELPA (SDL)'s band members and you guys have done a fine job by showing the world the hate that you are filled with. Go ahead, deny this...no one cares anymore. Am ashamed at calling myself a Fijian. We are not what you have showed the world we have become.

    Wasn't this page set up to counter the controlled media?

    Now sit back and ENJOY the crap that flowing into this site...no wonder everything's controlled out there. Let it loose and it runs out of control.

    Admin, you are the one who should ensure that news worthy stuff that is credible, yet regulated, gets posted here, and should have censored comments (but censoring here gets done based on self-interest).

    Poor you has been so busy inciting hatred among people that you lost sight of your own ultimate goal.

    A sad day it is ... indeed!

  168. Poate, I assume you're one of the many asslickers of this regime. This is even more evident by you posting your name and where you live. Your other hero Semi Meo does the same because he's confined to a mental institution in Brisbane.

    If you are anti-Bainimarama, would you air it out in public? I don't think you will considering what's been happening to people who challenged this evil bastard Bainimarama, your hero by the way.

    Meantime cuddle up to your boyfriend and kiss his ass.

    ReplyDelete
  169. Poate, I would be quite surprised if your statement was censored.

    I've contributed to this blog steadily. My comments are published, not censored. But then, I don't have a potty mouth like so many others.

    I don't get to see everything before it gets censored, but what I have seen typically consists of mind-numbing torrents of vile and abusive language with no socially redeeming qualities. I often wish more was censored, not less.

    Some of the abuse does come from iTaukei chauvinist troglodytes who support SODELPA. Probably more comes from regime supporters.

    Many of these messages are hateful. It's pathetic how some people will act when they think they can no longer be held accountable for their actions.

    Lately, we've seen one obsessive poster writing in various guises to blame Mark Manning for censorship on this blog. I don't know who the blog administrator is, but I'd be surprised if it were Mark. If it were, he's remarkably tolerant of the many attacks and slanders of him in this space by Fark Fanning and others.

    My own suspicion is that the Australian government established this blog as an active measure against the Bainimarama regime. Whatever its provenance, I'm glad that C4.5 was established, although I agree with you that it has drifted a bit off-course.

    I guess where we part company is that you seem to blame the blog administrator and assume he's SODELPA. I mostly blame the handful of fascist posters who are posting frequently, under many different names, for the purpose of shouting down each other, whether they be racist partisans or supporters of the dictatorship.

    I agree with you about the nastiness of this website, but in my opinion that is only found in the comments.

    This site would have been better if commenting was disabled.

    Very brave of you to post under your real name (if indeed it is really your name). Elections are close, and the outcome is uncertain. Only the brave would make their allegiance clear under their real names.

    I have a wife and 2 children, and unfortunately having a family has made me a coward.
    I have too much to lose now to risk my livelihood or the safety of my family.

    That's why I respect even more the leaders who stuck their neck out when things were at their worst. People like Ro Temumu and Beddoes, who were speaking out even when truckloads of soldiers were turning up at their homes in the middle of the night to try to intimidate them into silence.

    They are not perfect, and we may replace them with others in a future election, but what is most important right now is freedom and democracy, and they have been our strongest defenders in that regard. We need them to bring back our freedom to speak up, our freedom to strike if untreated unfairly at work, our freedom to make our own laws, etc.

  176. I hate the venom displayed in the comments at time but I guess C4.5 wouldn't be C4.5 without them. There have been some very clever and entertaining comments but this vibrant debate has been spoilt by provocateurs, regime supporters, trolls and those who are just haters and wreckers. It would be a shame to disable the commenting, especially four months out from the elections. Also, wouldn't that be just another victory for the illegal government? I applaud those who continue to blog here, especially under their names and urge them to keep doing it. It really is one of our lady acts of freedom.
