Narsey: new era is in fact long, painful struggle to rebuild



The Voting Behavior in the 2014 Elections
Professor Wadan Narsey


After eight years of running an unelected military government, and seemingly against the odds, Voreqe Bainimarama (Leader of the Fiji First Party) has now become an elected Prime Minister, and by a large margin.

Based on 73% of the provisional votes counted, FFP has won 33 seats out of a 50 seat parliament, with SODELPA receiving 14 seats, and National Federation Party (NFP) with only 3 seats.


Four small parties, including the once powerful Fiji Labor Party (FLP) and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), and two Independents did not make the 5% threshold, and hence they and their votes were all discarded.


While the usual cliché is “the people have spoken” the real question is, why did they speak thus?


The result is astonishing to the opposition voices who have been highlighting the many negative aspects in the eight year record of the Bainimarama Government: it started with an illegal coup, it issued numerous decrees reducing the basic human rights of people in freedom of speech, muzzled the freedom of media, freedom of assembly, the right to go to court for perceived grievances, abolished Fijian institutions recognized by the 1997 Constitution, refused to release the Auditor General Reports, unilaterally reduced pensions, broke many environmental laws, stifled wage increases by the Wages Councils, etc.


Perhaps these factors had very little impact on the outcome of the elections because of the abject failure of the educated leaders of both Fijians and Indo-Fijians to enlighten the less educated voters.


But I suggest that it not useful to blame “liumuri” (betrayal) factor for both indigenous Fijians and Indo-Fijians, as some in the Opposition parties may be inclined to do.



I suggest that “bread and butter” issues had a most powerful impact on the poorer voters (who comprise the majority of all voters of all ethnic groups) while emotional and physical security were also additionally important to Indo-Fijian voters, afraid of Fijian ethno-nationalism and SODELPA’s campaign strategy. 


The rich, of course, were in total support of FFP in many concrete ways, not the least through their influence on the media and the financing of the FFP election campaigns.


The ethnic components of FFP support
I roughly estimate that Fiji First Party received around 80% of Indo-Fijian votes (corrected from my earlier estimate of 85%), around what  FLP had in 2006.


Undoubtedly, a powerful factor was the Bainimarama Government’s repetition of the mantra, that under them, “all races are equal in Fiji”.


This otherwise nebulous claim was given substance by the freeing up of scholarships and loans for education, which Indo-Fijians value most highly, and in which Indo-Fijians have been the largest beneficiaries.


Then there was the “fear factor”: most Indo-Fijians were afraid that a SODELPA government would unleash the same forces that had led to the 1987 and 2000 coups against Indo-Fijians.


These Indo-Fijians felt that Bainimarama and Fiji First Party, with clear control and support of the military, whatever their roles in 1987 and 2000, were today the only ones capable of protecting Indo-Fijians, not the alternative parties NFP, FLP or PDP.


But Bainimarama could not have won by this majority had it not been of the support of a large proportion of indigenous Fijian voters.


I estimate, by working backwards from the mostly indigenous Fijian votes received by SODELPA and that going to the small parties, slightly more than 40% of indigenous Fijian voters also voted for FFP (while about 50% voted for SODELPA).


“Freebies” were probably the most powerful factor for them, and may have led to the alleged “liumuri” of SODELPA who expected to win far more than 25 seats based on what indigenous Fijians had told them before the election.
“Freebies” or “vote buying”?


It can be difficult to know when a “freebie” is “vote buying” and not just a good policy by any good government, although the timing of the freebie can be a good indicator.


But for the majority of ordinary Indo-Fijians and indigenous Fijians, a massive factor in their vote for Bainimarama was undoubtedly the benefits of free education already delivered, and the promise of many further benefits to come.


Released in the FFP Manifesto a mere ten  days before the main polling on 17 September, Bainimarama promised voters from low income families free electricity, water, medicines, and milk for Class 1 children throughout Fiji, as well as “first home” grants.  There was $10 million dollars promised to indigenous Fijians to help develop their lands.


There have also been roads, water, and sewerage developments in many rural areas that indigenous Fijians and Indo-Fijians have also been grateful for (whatever the costs in Public Debt).


Some think the equalization of lease money between commoners and chiefs has been important for Fijian land-owning commoners but I doubt it.


In summary, the ordinary “bread and butter” issues were far more important to voters of all ethnicity, and emotional and physical security to Indo-Fijian voters, than issues of “law and constitutionality” and “basic human rights” which had been eroded for eight years, but “out of sight”.


This was also the case in the 1999 elections when Indo-Fijians voted for the FLP rather than the NFP which delivered to them the theoretical benefits of the 1997 Constitution and the “multi-party government provision”.


Perhaps Fiji’s choice is also not too different from the choice being currently made in Scotland between the importance of “bread and butter” issues as opposed to the dignity of independent nationhood after centuries of colonization by England.


A step forward, with headaches to come

The people have spoken, provided there is no significant evidence of vote rigging (which some parties are alleging), and whatever one may say about the manipulative impact of the electoral system, the electioneering strategies, and the powerful impact of the media propaganda and campaigns (which deserve another article).


There is now an elected Government, which may be made more accountable through an elected Parliament, where questions may be raised by the Opposition members and answers demanded of the government.


The Opposition can now call for all the Auditor General’s Reports since 2006, to be tabled in Parliament, so that the public can see how the tax-payers’ funds have been utilized (and how some Ministers’ salaries and how much have been paid since 2006).


The Opposition can also call for further debates and judicial reviews of Fiji’s constitution, including the reconciliation of the current imposed own with the 1997 Constitution which was ruled by the Fiji Court of Appeal to be still extant.


It is going to be a major struggle for the Opposition to call for a fresh look at a range of decrees which have restricted the basic human rights of Fiji people, listed at the beginning of this article.


The proceedings of parliament may also enable the media and journalists to highlight issues and be a better “watch-dog” on government and society at large.


One light at the end of the tunnel is that with all international sanctions removed and external relations with Australia, NZ, EU and US normalized, there should also be a resurgence of investor confidence, and renewed economic growth.


Healthy rates of growth of over 6% per year could make management of Fiji’s significantly increased Public Debt a little bit easier, create new jobs, and perhaps help improve standards of living which have taken a battering since 2006.


While the naïve may proclaim that this is “the dawn of a new era”, the responsible civil society organizations and social leaders know that this is just the beginning of a long and painful struggle to re-establish a just society which our people deserve.

Wadan Narsey deserted Fiji Labour Party where he was a founding member to join National Federation Party on promise of a safe seat to Parliament.He became a MP.

When NFP got annihilated in the 1999 elections and lost all it's seats, Wadan being a fairweather friend and a political opportunist immediately deserted NFP and resigned from the party.

This to me sums up this Jamaican trained economist ( and we all know about Jamaica's economy, dont we ?)

Leslie Mumu said...

Good article, we do struggle with some rights of freedom, but at the end of the day as you have mentioned "bread & butter issues" are way way more important. No use living in an overall just society & struggling with day to day rising costs of living, next elections the other parties better bring their A game to the table & really put more effort into winning votes. I suspect FF party are consulting overseas advice on how to win votes if they aren't then i take my hat off to them for been such "stand up" people

Bainimarama's family will suffer.
Even now Meli Bainimarama is suffering.
Bainimarama will have more heartaches to come.
That is just the nature of the beast.

Bainimarama can CON the people of Fiji with all his bullshit explanations...but at the end of the day the chickens will come home to roost.
Happy reaping!

The Nationalist SODELPA Party only got 140 000 votes out of 320000 registered I-Taukei voters, which is not even 45%.

People also did not vote FLP because its leader apart from conviction took few million dollars from the most starved people on earth. Ironically his son Rajendra Chaudhary downloads photos of the food he eats on his Facebook. Food bought with the money his father took from the starving Indians.

The reasons for the PMs popularity is well explained in this letter from Lady Kara Davis published September 13 2014.

Dear Prime Minister Bainimarama,

For over 40 years, while living in the Pacific region, I visited Fiji often. My many visits involved travelling to all the main towns and many small villages on Viti Levu, Vanua Levu, and some of the outer islands. I met and interacted with people from all walks of life, from the poorest of the poor to the most prominent.

Because of my support for and involvement with higher education, the late Dr Umanand Prasad graciously introduced my colleague, Dr Reza Chowdhury and me to many people in the business and academic community. We also visited numerous villages where we met and interacted with local villagers and prominent professionals.

In spite of the usual island peculiarities and problems, the kindness and culture of the Fijian people warmed my heart profoundly!

In addition, everywhere I went, I heard nothing but the highest praise for you and your leadership. Finally, there was confidence and change for a better future.

Over the years, I have seen first-hand the immense improvements your leadership has made in Fiji, under very difficult circumstances and daunting challenges.

Your dedication and tireless efforts to rid Fiji of over 125 years of discrimination, inequities, division, and corruption; improve Fiji’s economy and living standards; and unite the Fijian people, are truly admirable.

When I was in Fiji last, I had the opportunity to watch your budget speech on TV.

What I heard and observed was so impressive! Your intelligence, attention to detail, support of higher education, plans for improving every sector of the population and its economy, and vision for Fiji, were and are indeed remarkable.

It took a great deal of courage to do what you have done and sacrifice yourself the way you did, for the betterment of Fiji and its people.

To those who understand what you are doing and trying to achieve for Fiji and your people, you are a true hero and leader! In fact, you are the Pacific region’s most outstanding leader!

Sadly, your critics in Fiji’s Pacific neighbourhood know little, if anything, about Fiji’s culture and the inequities of Fiji’s history; or perhaps, they have their own agenda.

My colleague in Washington, Dr. Reza Chowdhury and I both wish you and your government every success in the up and coming election. Now, more than ever, the world needs more leaders like you.

I was looking at the media about elections that happens last few weeks.

Vueti Viti said...

The rebirth of Fijian Nationalism

The lost cause amongst the indigenous people as it may perceived from people of other ethnic groups emigrated to these beautiful islands must not be over estimated.

We are dealing with nationalistic and emotional issues which derive from the inner core of people once see their chiefs as Gods and was later conveniently removed by the new Christian faith in exchange of their age old religion.

The psyche of the Kai Viti is deeply connected to their Chiefs, Vanua and Lotu.

People have tried in the past to destroy thees connections or isolate them through education, etc and etc but this election has brought in renewed and more aggressive form of Taukei nationalism especially amongst the educated and young Vitians.

Generally, FF tends to appeal to the majority of other ethnic groups which is understandable and the more the regime tries to protect itself from the long arm of the law the more the Vitians are being conveniently cast aside together with their dreams and aspirations.

In the minds of the Vitians they are a special race and all of a sudden a Muslim, an anti Christ and a Heathen has now taken the helm of leadership that is clearly trying to destroy their God given culture, tradition and vanuas and its resources.

Together with one of their own, the Vitians is now in the process of taking another step knowing that if they do nothing they will surely lose their God given inheritance.

Wait for the next segment....

Anonymous said...

Vueti Viti,

The only problem is that only one third of Vitians voted for the SODELPA.

You must be in another world if you think anyone has taken your chiefs, vanua and lotu. In fact it was a nationalist Qarese who took your land in west and sold it to whites. It was another nationalist Rabuka who sidelined lady Mara for top post in Great Council of Chief.

As far as the lotu goes you have no problem holding holy Bible in one hand and steal from the other hand.

Anonymous said...

@Vueti Vit

You are correct in what you say;

""In the minds of the Vitians they are a special race""

Special, in that they do not understand how un-special they are.

Look around you it is very obvious, from the unruly noisy drunken youth loitering on the streets, from the loud and ill mannered behaviour, from the constant spitting, from the drug culture, from the rape culture, from the violence culture, to the thieving culture.

This is how the 'culture' that has been born out of your supposed tradition is seen by the majority.

Until the Vitians have something others can look up to they are no more special than anyone else in this world.

Of the 591,000 who registered to vote, about 370,000 did come out to vote. Therefore 220,000 did not come out to vote at all. That's 37% of the people of all ethnic groups in Fiji.

What happened to them? Did they heed what Dakuwaqa said and boycotted the elections? Perhaps we should investigate and get them to realize that when the next elections come, their votes will really count.

Now that everything is over all we want now for everyone to do their part.

We want the best of every individual in the parliament.

We want the opposition to do what we the voters wanted them to do.

First things first but get all the decrees out the window.

Do what Wadan is requesting like the Auditors Report.

Very importantly Get the Media back to its original state as a watch dog. Media is the only place where we voters will be informed fairly.

Get Bainimarama to be accountable for all the shames he's done to the nation. Its not fair to say he does not take responsibility of what happened in 2006.

To those of you who have supported Bainimarama , especially the Indians we need to say that though you disagree with 1987 coup you are now responsible for supporting this 2006 coup.

Alright lets get moving and no relax for partying for all candidates as we have work to do. No Fiji time and no false promise. Go on, start working.

Correction to Wadan's estimate.

Indian Voters who voted for FFP is more then 80 %

However, Indigenous Voters who voted for FFP is definitely much less then 40%. Estimate is less then 30%.

Having said that its now fair to say that FFP, its suppporters and the world need to know that majority of the indigenous still feels unprotected by the regime now elected government.

So the message should be clear to Bainimarama that do not trash their rights as they will be watching that too and taken note of as we progress.

You should not worry about what Dakuwaqa said it would be far more use to you if you got your facts right before letting your imagination run wild.

591,101 people registered.
496,364 people cast votes.
83.9% registered voted.
16.1% registered did not vote.

So where does your 37% of non voters come from?

If you consider 16.1% not voting as an indication that people boycotted the election your imagination is as dumb as your imaginary figures that you attempt to support it.

What the fark happened there?

TO WHICH PERSON DID THEY GIVE VANI'S 5000 VOTES TOO?

Remember the total numbers had to tally up so they had to give the 5000 votes to somebody else.

OF COURSE THEY GAVE IT TO THE CON-MAN BAINIMARAMA.

If they did that to Vani's votes, How many other people did they do that too?

Which could also mean that it took him eight years to sufficiently bully his critics, gag the media, disqualify his main political opponents, borrow massive sums to spend on election inducements, codify immunity, campaign incessantly, deregister leading political parties, and rig the election.

Who cares, elected or not elected — he's a traitor either way and deserves to be hanged.

Dakuwaqa's advice to boycott the elections now looks correct, but we must remember that the boycott he wanted was supposed to be led by the leaders of the opposition taking a united stand. Since the leaders DIDN'T unite (boy, did High Tea ever flame them for that!), then the conditions for a boycott weren't right.

This is 2014 and it is unacceptable that people who claim to be peaceful Fijians advocate hate and racial intolerance . Free speech is welcome but not free shot at a persons ethnicity , race , religion or color .

Thank you Victor lal for exposing certain well known facts on Fijileaks in black and white despite denials from JAy DaYal from ba town. I was told by someone to have a read of emails exchanged between Victor and Jay and it all makes perfect sense. I am a family friend and know Prakash dayal very closely. Jay, kid you need to control your rubbish mouth. I'm sure your parents and family are embarrassed by you. You have yourself said all the things in those emails to me. (Maybe now you know who I am). I don't care. You have said the same things to a lot of others and these are about to surface, not on Fijileaks, but to baini n AiyaZ personally. You have in your latrine language called nur Bano names as well as calling her son "gay dog". Deny it all you want, but ppl already know son. People are not as dumb as you think. You have ongoingly called Muslims Taliban. Only stopped doing it on your fb page when you saw Aiyazs power in fiji. But privately you have made several hate speeches. People call jyoti the propaganda machine. Not true. Greedy pigs like you are the real engine behind all this. You were going to run away from fiji in 2013, why didn't u? If sodelpa was a stronger party with benefits to you, you would run after them. You don't care for better Fiji. You only care for your bank balance Jay!! You don't represent us Hindus in any way trying to act like our hero. We hav been living peacefully
With all races n religions so far but takes a few rotten tomatoes like you and Sudhakar to spoil our name and beliefs. Baini must kick out your racist n shameless friend out of parliament. You don't deserve to represent any of us. Votes to Sudhakar are all bought. No one in their right sense would vote this pathetic person. You are calling yourself a pious person and Philanthrapist. It's all a facade to buy adoration with money. You are a no class person. The society already knows what u really are. An attention seeking greedy n sly business man. No respect for women! The detrimental comments about nur Bano! Stop embarrassing us more. You are undeserving of any title in the community. You sre boastful and an extreme cyber bully. Not to mention vulgar and twisted. Words you used on roshikA deo. you can use Your pit lLanguage on anyones family n sisters and morhers If it suits you. You call yourself a good person! Stop pretending!

Provisional results wrongly entered
07:04 Today


Taken from/By: FBC News
Report by: Ritika Pratap
The Fijian Elections Office has clarified that provisional results for SODELPA candidate Vane Seruvakula were wrongly entered.
When provisional votes were released on the night of elections, Seruvakula had up to five thousand seven hundred votes – however this was not reflective in her final result.
“The provisional result for Vane Seruvakula was higher than the final and we found that in data entry there was a typo error and that’s what caused the high number of votes. But with the final results – with the three audit systems there is no mistake for the final vote.”
Saneem says they had insisted from the beginning that provisional results were to be dropped once final results were released.

I suggest that members of SODELPA do a lot of soul searching. Those days of Butodroka are gone. The people of Fiji have spoken. No one is interested in the old song of iTaukei supremacy. Let's accept that we all are equal. Get off the high horse and embrace each other and accept that we are all children of God.

Sign up a class with PROFESSOR Wadan Narsey who will teach you the know-how to analyze monitor and report a general election with marked precision. I mean we can only admire the man or anyone else who has earned a PhD that would have taken him approx 4-7 years. Its a high level achievement and so with your gibberish, what does that make YOU out to be??

So stop ranting like a complete uneducated idiot and give the man credit where it is due.

You can do better, educate yourself to that level where you can understand the clear narrative outlined in the Professor's well-thought out analysis of the General Elections just held.

Thank you.

The democratic opposition repeatedly called on the illegal regime to relinquish the reins of government to a caretaker government in the run-up to the election. We continually called on ASK to step down as Elections Minister in view of the obvious conflict of interest. Again and again we asked for fair play and transparency, but every protest fell on deaf ears. Therefore the regime should not now wonder why the election results are questioned. The regime cannot reasonably complain now that all questions about the results are sour grapes, when it could have taken the steps necessary to guarantee an election all could have seen to be above-board. And when it is the party most responsible for engendering an atmosphere of suspicion.

Bubu.Jamaima said...

I agree Ganesh. I dont think the Opposition can immediately reverse the negative parabolic trajectory firmly held in place by Fiji First mentality - they've demonstrated an obstinate determination to submerge the rule of law once and for all. We've seen it happen before the elections and we cannot expect the same group to show any signs of change. No way!

Its definitely going to be a tough battle for SODELPA. They will make it! That's the whole purpose of them being in the Opposition!

Kiwi Academic Dr Frankel was, in an exert of his speech below, being like a Kindergarten Teacher to our 2 Elected Leaders of Opposing Parties.

He said:

“In stronger democracies than Fiji, after an election the new prime minister makes a magnanimous speech recognising or acknowledging the concerns of those who voted for the opposition, and promising to represent the interests of not only those who voted for him or her, but also those who did not.” To the vanquished Dr Frankel says:”With humility, the leader of the largest unsuccessful party acknowledges the defeat, and in so doing charts a course for building a new stronger opposition over the years ahead.”

Our Leaders in all humility can also learn the way from an outsider looking in. Dr Frankel was obviously saying something very important.

No more bickering, quick temperedness (you are both beginning to worry us), not too well thought out or irrational public statements..these are real tell-tale signs that tell the people that our Leaders can do better.

We urge our two Leaders to first and foremost remember...your roles are not about pampering yourselves or fluffing around with proud and foolish statements. Self-egoistic tendencies should be buried!

You are required to serve the people of Fiji - improving their livelihoods and stamping out all forms of corruption, greed, lies, dishonest works and the long list goes on.

I strongly believe that vote rigging really happened and there should be an investigation.The Seruvakula lady candidate had 6000 votes and next day, it had been reduced to 1000, where wrong data entry was given as the reason for the error.Any changes to the trend in voting or making alterations to achieve required results could have been determined by only 2 people in positions of authority, Uncle and nephew team,Khaiyum and Saneem.For example,what about the sudden jump of votes to Aiyaz Khaiyum from early dismal performance.If there was a mistake in data input for Seruvakula, what about a deliberate additional data input that caused the jump for Khaiyum? After all it is only uncle and nephew who know and discussed delicately every night about the number of voters who did not turn up at any polling station or the number of invalid votes from any station. Such information could have been used to change the data information designed by IT experts who were based at the AG's office for the past 2 years.
Sitting Ministers and Commissioners of Divisions in the Military regime were only given 2 weeks to resign because they were candidates in the election. I know one or 2 who were reluctant to resign because they were not sure of whether they can get into Parliament. But look at the number of votes they got, more than those who had been campaigning for the past 2 years......all because the careful manipulation of the votes by the "uncle and nephew" combination.

SODELPA and NFP need to start focusing on Local City and Town elections. Both parties need to make wholesale changes in their strategy. SODELPA should bring in someone who is good at drawing up a long term plan and policies for the party. NFP needs to get away from ole boy's club. People have spoken and NFP need not to turn blind to this fact. Days of Attar Singh, Pramod Rae, Raman Singh and Biman are gone. From 6.3% votes in 2006 down to 5.4% is negative. It is only due to new benchmark that NFP has secured 3 seats. So let us not be blind.

Once they came to Australia, they received dole and littered Australia with tons of more freeloaders. All fed and cared for through Australian dole money financed by hardworking Australian taxpayers. Now, these freeloaders are hellbent on killing the same people who has given them protection and food to survive without lifting a finger. Fiji is in a similar state. This just goes to show that these people cant be trusted. Your leader has made a big mistake by handing power to such people.

As you can see, it was a question, not a statement, hence the question mark at the end of my sentence! (?)!

"So basically, Indigenous Fijians are lazy, thick, uneducated, opportunists, near sighted and greedy"?

And if that's true, then they deserve the Government they now have, one based on lies, greed, narcissism and lead by a murderous thug. A Judas who has no Loyalty to his own tribe, clan and Village, in reality.

But to answer your question, because it is defined by a question mark (?) as was mine, no, Moslems don't frighten me at all, in fact I have some very good friends who are Moslems, but they haven't tortured and murdered nor committed High Treason like Frank Bainimarama.

yes moronic manning... whats with trying to incite violence and breed hatred? You reckon Fiji will become Chindia? Ya homeland Oz already is.. The Oz economy depends on the coal and iron ore bought by China and India. Once that slows down and it will soon, you'll be using coal for heating your home. The cheap made-in-china bras and undies you bought from Big W will cost more too. Soon the Maroubra and Lakemba Muslims will be telling you what to do.Simon says perhaps?

@ muddled manning 420 PM
Graham Davis?
You are typical of Frank's supporters, you make unfounded accusations and mix truth with fiction to suit your own agenda and once you've made the accusation, you never respond to it.
You are a small minded clown and like a naughty child, you step into the room and make a loud noise for attention, then run out before you can be confronted.

The violence and hatred to which you refer, is ingrained in Fijian culture, just look at the history of torture, illegal detentions at the Military Barracks and the murders of the 5 CRW Soldiers in 2000 and innocent, unarmed Indigenous Fijian Civilians and Fiji Citizens murdered since December the 5th. 2006 under Frank Bainimarama's command by members of the Fiji Police and RFMF.

Your words, not mine :- "yes moronic manning... whats with trying to incite violence and breed hatred"?

Australia needed to become multi cultural, because the World is changing, but it was done honestly and through a Legitimate Parliament, not some pretend parliament like you have currently in Fiji.
At the moment, you can sing the praises of Frank and Aiyaz, but once your own land is taken from your clan, will you be the 1st. to begin complaining?
Supply and demand is the key to any Economy, but along with it goes good Governance, something Mr. Qarase delivered in bucket loads.
Frank and Aiyaz, like the Italian Mafia in Las Vegas in the 1950's & 60's, will skim some off the top for themselves and they won't deliver functional nor functioning Services to the Public of Fiji.
Good Governance won't be in their vocabulary!

You should be asking, why else do Frank, Aiyaz and others in the Regime, seek Medical attention and treatment, offshore.
Aiyaz takes his own son to Australia for his blood disorder, yet he criticises Australia. A little bit hypocritical don't you think?
And frank often goes to china for his ailments! ailments which will be his undoing because if he doesn't succumb to them, he undoubtedly will suffer an embolism from all his frequent Globe trotting!
On a flight out of Fiji, he will meet his Maker and the CRW Soldiers he had murdered in 2000.

Our Reserve Bank makes the necessary adjustments to the Exchange Rate to allow for fluctuations in trade and in Trade Variances and Prices whereas Fiji's Reserve Bank has little scope to do this because it has nothing left to leverage its Economy against, except the gifts to the Chinese Government and Chinese Banks, of Resources and Indigenous Land!

I'm not so certain about you, but I don't wear bras! now that's another tail to tell!

Your words, not mine:- The cheap made-in-china bras and undies you bought from Big W will cost more too.

Unlike the Moslem Indian you have running Frank and the RFMF, the Moslems in Australia came here to get away from violence and oppression, not to inflict it as he is doing in Fiji!
Australians confront and resist Moslem propaganda and ideology, Indigenous Fijians foolishly embrace it!
The consequences of which, are self evident in Fiji today and in the longer term will be catastrophic.

Predominantly, Moslems understand that they will never be Christians, unless they renounce Islam.
They understand their Ancestry and where their beginnings took place, through a bastard child.

"Your words, not mine:-

Moslems will never run Australia!

moronic manning .. your words...Unlike the Moslem Indian you have running Frank and the RFMF, the Moslems in Australia came here to get away from violence and oppression, not to inflict it as he is doing in Fiji!
So why was a Muslim youth recently shot dead in Sydney, 700 Policemen conducted raids on "radicalised" Moslems two weeks ago in Lakemba in Sydney and Logan in Brisbane and 150 Oz Moslems fighting in Iraq and Syria, and countless Moslems calling for jihad and Fatwa on Tony Abbot? Not to mention the countless Oz passports for Moslems that were cancelled so they are effectively trapped in Oz? This is freedom? What is Australia scared of? Seems you have a bigger Moslem problem then Fiji. The AFL finals will have heighten security I understand. Why? Scared of moslems bombing you? I hear razor blades have been found on the grounds.
Yeah we read the news too, boy. Fact to fiction you accuse me, hmm. Yeah get your facts right.
And no I am not Graham Davis, he seems to be your nemesis and you seem paranoid he is attacking you. Nothing I hope your "training" in clinical hypnoquackery cannot fix I hope.

manning watch said...

moronic manning...you reckon hatred and violence is ingrained in Fijian culture? How would you know? thats right you read it somewhere. Your Brit ancestors brutalised thousands into slavery, subjugated the natives of Australia and countless nations into indentured servitude, stole so much the British Museum is over flowing with stolen loot from Greece, Egypt, South Asia, China, etc and you accuse Fijians of having a culture of violence? Moronic hypocrite. You should touch base with your homeland, England the home of soccer hooligans now and then to learn of your history.
BTW how does one acquire a diploma in Clinical Hypnoquackery? 3 week correspondence course from a fake technical college? you must have "passed" with flying colours. And that makes you an expert in world affairs but specialising in Fijian affairs. wow

I'm very flattered that you take the time to read and respond to my infrequent contributions here, vinaka.
I suppose we equally have issues depending on each others individual points of view. Me with some Moslems, and you with some English and Australian people, and in a Democracy, we are entitled to those differing views no?
I only have issue with anyone trying to thrust their beliefs, be they Political or Religious, upon me, though I respect their right to have differing views, I may not agree and I will defend to the death, their right to those views.
You seem to believe that Australians are fearful of Moslems and that we don't like them, yet my views stated here, you have deliberately, again, taken out of context, because where you choose to rant and rave about India, the Middle East, Moslems, Australia and English Colonialists, I prefer to stick to the topic of what is occurring within Fiji's borders, as is my right under a Democracy and Freedom of Speech, an International Right.
I don't speak for anyone else, only myself, that doesn't imply that I am ever correct.
I suspect that you are Indigenous Fijian and that you are so close to Frank Bainimarama, that you believe the demented ones rhetoric about English Colonialist without question. Sadly, that is a closed minded approach and not worthy of attention.
You can attack me all you like, you can insult me all you like, you can question my integrity all you like, you can oppose my views all you like, you can even try to influence others to change their views toward me with your lies and deceptions, it doesn't phase me one iota!
I think you are one of those people who always wanted to be white skinned and doesn't feel good about his own ancestry! That's a very sad situation and I hope you get some help for that and by the way, I know a good Clinical Hypnotherapist who may be able to help you.
Now just take 3 deep breaths, relaxing more and more with each breath in and as you exhale, all the stress of the day is released and now, we'll count from 5 to 1 backwards, closing your eyes, 5, feeling relaxed all over etc. etc..
And while you're in that state of relaxation, consider putting yourself in the shoes of those you oppose and picture yourself allowing yourself to grow and expand your views to something more in line with reality!

I think it's imperative that the Australian Government respond to the current threats by Moslems and others in the Community who choose to thwart the Laws of the land, unlike Fijians, who for the past 8 years in particular, have bent over backwards to accommodate Frank Bainimarama and Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum, your Indian Moslem friend.
If Moslems are not confronted from the beginning, they won't stop until they own and run every facet of Society, as has happened and continues to unfold in Fiji.
Thanks for asking, but I'm afraid I don't know nor understand why young Australian men and their Father's are fighting in their Ancestral Homelands!
I'm guessing they feel a need to defend their homeland, something the Soldiers in the RFMF will never do, because they are blinded by greed, corruption, money and nepotism!
The 18 year old Australian who recently converted to Islam was probably radicalised by an Islamic group for their own purposes and used to do their fighting for them, or he was simply a young man full of testosterone and too much unspent energy, unable to find his way in the world.
It's very easy to entice and enrol this type of personality into a group who are hell bent on causing and inflicting harm on others in their Communities, because the leaders of those same groups, are too cowardly to do their own dirty work or risk dying or going to jail for their own views etc.
Then we have the Imams around the world who show that they are unable to interpret the Koran in the same way as each other, as many say Islam is a Religion of Peace, while others say it is not a Religion, but a way of life and that the objective is to kill all non Moslems!
Perhaps you should be approaching the Imams to find out what's going on, unless you're too busy enjoying the fruits of your recent take over of Fiji!
Either way, you seem confused and angry and too full of energy. Your views seem clouded by propaganda and an unhealthy love of and alliance with Frank and Aiyaz, you seem to me to be a misguided individual, incapable of making sound and honourable choices, though you may try!
I feel sorry for your children and wife, because your views will poison theirs and subject them to a lifetime of misery and poverty and poor health, either mental or physical or both.

Your statement quoted below rings so true for you, doesn't it? @ MM 4.35pm:

"And while you're in that state of relaxation, consider putting yourself in the shoes of those you oppose and picture yourself allowing yourself to grow and expand your views to something more in line with reality!"

Dear Mark, I say this to you with Christ's love and affection: it's way past time that you just GO AWAY and leave us alone to sort ourselves out.

What you've stated above is exactly what you've been doing: Growing up at our expense.

And that's a terrible thing to do to a people who are oppressed when you and your family live in a free, democratic society.

You have the means at your disposal there to help you deal with your obsession about Fiji. Please get a life or just go away. Bye now.

@ oolala said... 503 p.m.
The only thing worse than a misguided Moslem is a misguided Christian!
Please don't bother Christ, hasn't He endured enough suffering on Fiji's behalf, especially when you take into account the tortures and murders of the 4 to 6 innocent Indigenous Fijians Civilians since December the 5th. 2006 and the 5 C.R.W. Soldiers in 2000?
Growing up! No, growing old more likely.
I doubt Fijians will resolve their issues at home because too many people have too much to lose and others too much to gain if the Status Quo is disrupted and a proper Democracy is ever restored!
The G.C.C. has not functioned as proposed and at the same time, has proven its worth, were it allowed to function as intended, though some don't want it restored for their own hidden reasons, which lately are beginning to become exposed for all to see.
No, I'll continue to voice my opinion and it's not for you to brush me aside, but for the moderator of each blogsite I visit, and if they choose to do that, I'll respect their decision.
I'll pray for your redemption and ask God to show you the way however!

oolala said...

Yawn. Calling me a 'misguided Christian' is an oxymoron. One cannot be a Christian and be misguided at the same time. You are either a Christian OR misguided.

Jesus' teachings, particularly his parables, as recorded in the Gospels contained in the Sacred Scriptures are simple, they are straight-forward and are unambiguous.

If you put yourself out as a Christian yet try to drive a wedge through the two major ethnic communities in Fiji (both oppressed by a dictatorial regime) through propaganda; OR try to impose a "Christian State" with your interpretation of the faith that should reign supreme over a multi-ethnic, multi-faith society as we have in Fiji, then you could simply be considered a fraud instead of misguided.

And ought to be called one.

But certainly not a 'misguided Christian'.

So you're insisting on staying, well, the blog's not mine plus its your own free will, so stay if this is therapeutic for you.

I will leave you now with Blessed Mother Teresa's words of wisdom to ponder over:

"By blood and origin I am Albanian.
My citizenship is Indian.
I am a Catholic nun.
As to my calling, I belong to the whole world.
As to my heart, I belong entirely to the heart of Jesus."
~ Mother Teresa, 1910-1997.

moronic manning.. you make too may assumptions. You assume because I am anti-morons which you clearly fall into, I must be pro-frank. Where have I ever stated or alluded to support for frank or aiyas? As for your claim that my deepest desire is to be white skinned, I'll put that into the loony tunes greatest hits by moronic manning. i am assuming you think white skin represents the highest form of human beings. HAHAHA.
Stop pretending too, to be a Christian praying for the salvation of others. pray for yourself, your family and your quack profession. The hatred, prejudice and crap you spew out is hardly Christian like.
Another of your assumptions is that I am Graham davis. What is your fixation or paranoia with him? Spurned long lost lover perhaps? Scared he might reveal some of your cross dressing fetishes? Hope you can cure yourself with some of that quackery you dish out. Even if it doesn't work, you might cure yourself of baldness.
You accuse me of going off topic, you seem to that very well.
As for enjoying the fruits of the recent take over in fiji, thats a little hard to do. I live in Sydney like you. Not too far from your quack clinic.
