Budget 2016: Military allocated over $100 million, VAT decreases and tourists to pay more tax

Is the PM sleeping during the Budget delivery?
The 2016 budget was released today by the man with many portfolios Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum.

Themed 'A Strong Fiji, A Fair Fiji, A Healthy Fiji' the $3.4 billion budget has many promises but whether it delivers is another question.

Khaiyum has projected income for next year to be $3.13 billion. 

Still no mention of the missing $1 million though!

Here are some of the highlights of the budget:

  • The military will get $103.3 million 
  • VAT will drop to 9% from 15% but the cost of flour, cooking oil, dhal, kerosene and tinned fish and certain medicines will now increase

  • Tourists will pay more tax. At the moment tourists pay 15% VAT plus 5% Service Turnover Tax. From January 1, they will pay 9% VAT, 6% environmental levy and 10% Service Turnover Tax.

  • The Health Ministry will get $280 million

  • Smokers will pay more with tax on cigarettes increasing to 12.5% with an additional health levy of 5% also charged to the purchase of the item.

  • Fiji Airways will get $18 million

  • Land Transport Authority will get an increase of $14.9 million

  • Price of soft drinks to increase by 5c

  • $5 million allocated to Legal Aid

  • Importing used tyres will be banned from 2017

  • $500,00 allocated to assist low income families, farmers and lease holders with iTaukei Land Trust Board arrears.

  • Overseas investors who set up private hospitals with a minimum investment of $7million will enjoy a 10-year tax holiday.

  • All new and used vehicles imported by car dealers must at least be Euro 4 compliant. This means vehicles should emit as little carbon as possible.

  • Duty for basic toiletries like baby garments, undergarments, deodorants, skincare products, cameras, camcorders, sunglasses and binoculars will be reduced from 32% to 5%.

  • 390 local flights will be subsidised

SODELPA Supporters were saying that VAT will go up from 15% to 17%. Shame on SODELPA bloggers always blaming Bainimarama government and the military. In coming days you will loose another 30% of your voters. Compare this budget with Rabuka and Qarase's budget. Oile Mari.

Importing used tyres is banned from 2017 sounds pretty good. With poor roads in Fiji, second hand tyres contribute to road fatalities however get ready consumers to pay more for new tyres .
103m military budget - hunger for power -no question about it in a military controlled environment. ..it's no 1 priority.
Not a good move to let tourists pay extra tax? What message and method are we using to pull tourists to our shores. Remember Fiji is no longer the exotic island it used to. The world is aware of our domestic and political problems and their perception of Fiji has changed . Borabora and Mali are places in the South Pacific that tourists around the world are flocking to today.

What a joke? Do you think reducing vat will help the country sustain growth .. Govt is trying to recover this by applying heavy tax on the Industry that we rely on- tourism. Read 3 .45pm comment.

No he is trying to think outside the box but doesn't know which part of the body to use, his brain or his dick. The answer of choice is the direction he is looking...downward.

what suits any Government is not to create intelligent educated people.

If society is educated, the Government wont be able to exploit the people.

If they are educated, the Government cannot subjugate the people.

In every country the people rise against the Government and the songs of revolution began in the Universities of those countries.

Just like when Khaiyum became a revolutionary following the 87 coup...Sorry Freddy Fesaitu - you were not a revolutionary. You were an opportunist.

So... people need to educate themselves and stop accepting as truth the bullshit the Government or Opposition is spinning and find out the truth themselves. Only then can the people of Fiji set themselves free of this tyranny.

Khaiyum knows this and has a hold on our educational system and in particular the USP.

To the USP students stop thinking outside but instead go inside.

At the rate your at with arrogance and weirdness you will never get hired by the business sector,going work on the land.

According baini adn khaiyum, GCC is irrelevant, the chiefs dont need to have role in todays society, what is important is that influx of muslims keep migrating to Fiji,tyhe refugees need to keep coming in and we need to keep takign more and more debt,everything else is irrelevant.This is just to cover up the debt that has been piling up.Hoodwink the public just like with the flag change and competition,it is a distraction.

you failed to mention the millions of dollars in debt the Fiji government has accumulated since the 2006 military coup.

you failed to mention the robbing of the FNPF by the Regime because it cannot generate enough revenue to meet cost and using foreign aid to pay off huge amounts of debts.

You failed to mention the vigorous money collecting campaign made by LTA and Police which is a nuisance to the public.

you failed to mention the militarization of various government ministries and bai/khai family and friends nepotism thus undermining good governance.

you failed to mention the increase in coruption brought about by Bainimarama and Kaiyum.

you failed to mention the unethical practices of the Regime in its dealings, vodafone wold cup trip scandal.

you failed to mention the increase in the undermining the Rule of Law in Fiji by the Regime. 

You failed to mention 71cents per ton on sugarcane farmers.

Anybody know where that $100 million went?

We need to see the full budget documents to make any meaningful comment at this stage. On the face of it, the military budget looks a bit too low to me. We have like what 3-4,000 troops in Fiji and 1,000 abroad at any point in time? Govt subsidises a good part of peacekeeping operations and the UN just gives a fuckall amount for allowances etc. Last year's budget was almost $200m so it makes more sense if the $100m is the increase and not the full budget. They cannot make drastic cuts to FMF, because that is basically their security. Those troops will continue to be uselessly overpaid and underworked and continue their peacekeeping junkets. Send them to combat missions and make our money well spent and the medals can be more deserving. We a re sick of seeing those glittering medals on their chest. They are the laughing stock of the Pacific regional military. They can't even fight out with scantily armed (flip-flop adorned) terrorists yet they continue to bully, threaten and look menacing at home. They are an embarrassment to Fijians all over the world.

The national budget is one of the principal means whereby the BaiKhai administration expresses its intentions, strategies and agendas. It is also the expression of its economic and financial muscle that enable its various body parts to move according to the dictates and commands of its brain. Study the budget, ask the right questions and get a better understanding of this FF governing animal. What kind of an animal is it? Is it a monster in disguise? Srudy the outlines as well as the details of the budget. Compare the budgets as the animal continues to enslave the people through its well disguised lies and distortions, its overt and covert actions. The truth will be revealed eventually. Such is the nature of truth that secrecy, distortion and blatant suppression only serves to get it out into the open. Someday, one day Mafatu. The truth will come out and a sufficient number of people will gain the courage to speak out, stand up, and fight for the truth and for what is good, just and fair for everyone.

The 2015 flag budget must have been spent by now, so that's perfectly normal to ask about the 2016 budget as the deadline is coming very quickly.

When someone important dies, we put the national flag on the coffin so that's why I think time has come to think outside of the box before someone important ends up inside of the box.

We need to change that mentality of lazyness.There is no government and political party in Fiji that could possibly achieve great results and bring prosperity, when the people at the bottom still think and behave like they're living in a village right in the middle of the 20th century.

The reality is that most people on this forum are lazy thinkers. FF is embedded in corruption, many people know for a fact that Franky boy is doing bad things behind the scenes. Nevertheless they look at Sodelpa, the "main opposition"and who is unable to analyse the whole of governments accounts books,who then needs to ask the lesser party NFP to scrutinize the books because they are bunch of farmers and have a Professor/Economist...that's crazy. Only in Fiji.

One of the big problem for Frank is this: he granted more freedom to iTaukeis, and that's why so many voted for him. However iTaukeis have always needed a strong leadership which goes back to the warrior days. In a free world, one needs to have the discipline to work and look after oneself. Unfortunately, a lot of iTaukeis are ill prepared for the modern world.

It is ironic that a dictator like Frank, a strong man, is giving freedom to iTaukeis who then become more dependent than ever before. We need to find a way to change that and become more of hard workers, but from my personal experience.... good luck!

Flowery words, complaints without statistics, non-compliant by companies without prosecution?, reduced vat but new levy and the poor gets nothing overall, but like other years before, the benefit never gets to the consumer.

Look at the fuel price as an example:

When it was $120 a barrel, the consumer in Fiji was paying $2+ per litre, now that the price is less than $50 barrel, we are still paying $2+ per litre.

Looks good.
Sounds good.
Smells good.
But as always - another delusion by the master deceiver.

The problem with SODELPA is that they so way behind in the way they think and what this dumb party does not realise... is that most of their party members are easily swayed and aghe pitche... Native Fijians are the biggest dagger and snakes... and easily swayed with paisa... lavo.. money... Many of them are informants for our beloved National FF party ha ha ha ha ha.....

Is SODELPA wondering why we FF are always two steps ahead of them... yep that's why... Many SODELPA freely talk to us about their discontent with the party and those that pretend no to talk... one nice yellow bill does the trick... and io boso... io saka... too easy...when will you SODELPA learn that the native of today has no substance.... they only like the colour of yellow notes... guess what they do with the money... ha ha ha too fucking dumb they spend it same time on alcohol, women and pretending for one weekend they rich.... niggers will always be niggers.. have nothing they like rats.. have something they still rats...

Oh by the way... the flag will go and the yellow bill will one day gave our beloved leader Frank's picture on the bill... He will become the next President and this will happen whilst he is still alive like never before.... Long live FF.

Outside and Inside boxes said...

"Aitken Spence has a reputation for certain things my Government values most – innovation, imagination, thinking outside the box." Frank Bainimarama

"Think outside the box, PM urges exporters"

"Financial inclusion is about thinking outside the box, because what is required is beyond the norm. What is required is innovative thinking".

Thinking outside the box

“It should never come to that “conflict of interest” because we are dealing with people’s lives, breadwinners. Fiji needs people who are able to think outside the box and contribute positively towards nation building,” Frank Bainimarama

Outside and Inside boxes said...

"Fiji’s Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum has called on journalists to think outside the box and cover vital stories facing a nation."
He said today journalists needed to be more analytical and investigative on critical issues that were been left out of the media.

“You need to think outside the box and that doesn’t happen much at all,” he said.

“I believe if you’re writing an opinion piece, if you want to analyse and question things, these are the sorts of things you need to be doing.”

I think the key characteristic of any tertiary institution is actually to engage in critiquing and thinking.  Not just for the purpose of a student to get a diploma or a degree  but also to make us think outside the box, also to more importantly perhaps contribute to the thinking process in the wider community at large in which that university does exist and indeed not just the country but within the region and internationally also.

This symposium  we think is very very timely because the Bainimarama Government is very much involved in modernising, in creative thinking, in  making paradigm shifts, and in having new paradigms altogether"

OK I'm sure the PM was totally snoring away when the hard working
Minister of everything was hard at it-working for people to have
a better life in our small island nation? I vote for Bhai to step down
and step into the President post, give the military to Konrote Bisikete, and upgrade Khaiyum to Prime Minister of FIJI! By the way
Khai its time to review the $500.00 dollars you allocated to those
who leased land from Itaukei but are in arrears of their payments?You
know that 98% of INDO cane farmers owes Lease arrears to the Itaukei?
How about a law to force these crooks to payup, and allow landowners
to foreclosed on lease requirement by taking their cattles,goats,vehicles,farm equipments & bank accounts? So since you're the minister of everything-I urge you to set this law up for
our economic development and remember your Fijian Son will appreciate
you & your work in the near future? Don't worry about those heathen hindu the're untouchable & the lowest caste in the Universe!!!

Budget should be tittled.

"The 2016 think outside the box budget"
This academic term that started overnight is spreading like wild fire on our social network. Is the term new to Fijis Frank? Obviously he got it from either one of his grandchildren during the usual royal dinner or from his partner in crime Khaiyum. Fijileaks will soon carry a cartoon on this .
Anyway, think outside the box simply means getting their ass out of the office and visit their voters regularly to hear them and take action. Visit rural places , poor settlements and those in need and help. Problems and hardships are rife in Fiji because wealth is unfairly distributed. Frank and his family while living comfortably and enjoying the luxury of life are allowing ordinary people to struggle everyday. Action speaks louder than telling the nation to think outside the box.

I don't get it.
If I was buying $100 worth of food, $50 in non-essential and $50 in essential foods - under old law I would pay 15% on $50 and 0% on the other. That is a total of $7.50 in VAT.

Under the new rules, I will pay 9% on the $100 - that is $9.00.

Total increase is $1.50. Is this what we are fighting about.

Sure the poor guy, who only used to buy $50 essential items, he will now pay an additional $4.50 and that is a burden for the poor.

And sure, my businessman friend who will be buying a $150K luxury car for his son, he will now save $9,000. For him it is Happy Diwali. And someone with $150K for a car really does not need a break as much as the poor dude who can't come up with an extra $4.50.

So rather than giving a relief by reducing the VAT from 15% to 9% which both Sodelpa and NFP seem to like - it may have been a better idea to give the poor a break someplace else and not a across the board break as in here.

If Soldiers were paid $450 a week, then you would need close to $79,000,000 per year, the left over $22,000,000 would go in to Frank and Aiyaz' Bank Accounts offshore!
But to answer the question, who is the Military at war with?
The answer is, Frank's fear of imprisonment for murder, human rights abuses, torture and high treason!

Why are FF Supporters making a commotion about the reduction of VAT to 15%.

@8.22 Your SVT was the one who put the VAT in the first place to 10%. It was your SDL government who increased to 15%. It took ten years because your past governments bankrupted the country. Who has made Education free in Fiji, Any one can go and study at USP, Better Health services, free Primary and Secondary education, Free books, Free water and prescriptions for poor families, better roads, lower taxes, more jobs, more economic growth, etc. Even your SODELPA leader is happy with the budget.

I STRONGLY believe the biggest winners after the delivery of the 2016 National Budget are all ordinary Fijians.

To me, the biggest highlight of the budget has been the drop in VAT from 15 per cent to 9 per cent.

This is the cornerstone of this budget. This is a record low level when comparing with the past percentage rates.

I believe it will go down as the lowest rate in the history of the Fijian economy.

Although some may claim that there will be losses in revenue because of this change, however, Government has looked at other avenues to source the loss in revenue.

This is surely going to put a lot of smiles back on all Fijian people.

Finally, they have been rewarded for their hard work and sacrifice.

It will bring relief to the poor as they could buy things at a lower cost keeping other factors in mind.

It is definitely a timely decision from the Government's perspective, which is surely going to benefit all Fijians.

Although some may feel that things have not gone in their favour but I surely believe this budget is not a lopsided one. I am sure the budget has included the aspirations of all Fijians irrespective of race, colour and creed.

It is a budget that will set standards for Fiji's secure future.

I strongly believe this budget will be a recipe for a strong and sustainable economic growth.

As we always say Rome was not built in a day, so as Fiji, but the best part is we are slowly working towards it.

Budget 2016
9% vat reduction is not across the board. The very basic necessity - food is not, meaning only the upper class is again rewarded.The 9% loss to the govt will be recovered from somewhere, right? Are the pension funds going to foot that? Budget somehow looks a little better but still sketchy due to lack of transparency. Government must be transparent when it comes to MONEY. How can we trust this budget as true and fair when govt is stopping the auditor general from carrying out it's duties free and fair. The same group that had been accused of falsifying informations and declarations, hid and stole millions of dollars and stop anyone from carrying out any investigation on alleged govt fraud are behind the formulation of this budget . Can we trust them?
Bottom line is , it will steal from the people what it gave them.

An interesting budget with more questions than answers..
assuming that FRCA can get their compliance systems up and running from the beginning of next year, to seal those 'tax evasion' leakage allegations.

While ASK was trying to be believable, one really needs to ask if that is enough esp. since; he cannot properly declare his assets and liabilities and he has a long & hard time trying to explain where the missing $100m went t,o by using the budget unit to explain the allocation, but no acquittals on how those funds were actually used (that's where the Auditor General was coming from). Fiji Sun who might as well be called the new Ministry of Information has applauded this explanation however they are more worried about the $225k provided to the Opposition Office.... maybe to the sun $225k > $100m?

HATS off to the new CEO at Fiji Airways for clearly indicating that he believes in locals.

A major drive to see more locals are employed as pilots is a welcome decision.

This surely should serve as precedence for other firms in the country to believe in their local employees and give them a chance.

I am quite certain that locals have what it takes to match the best at the workplace.

It is also an opportune time for the workers to prove themselves. Only they need to be provided with opportunities and employers need to believe in them, definitely they are going to give their best shot.

So come on graduates now is your time,don't listen to SODELPA they want you to bury your heads in the books and be bible nerds plus work the land.They will keep you inside the box rather then letting you out of it.Graduates you are the future of Fiji and the modernized generation remember you are worth more then these SODELPA lot.

Why is the Fiji Govt giving $18 million to Fiji Airways?
Fiji Airways made a profit of $17.5 million in the first 6 mths of this year 2015.Thats on the Fiji Airways website.
So why the fark is the govt giving $18 million?
Did the Airline actually make a profit or was this ANOTHER CREATIVE ACCOUNTING DECEPTION TO FOOL THE PEOPLE.

Or is the Fiji Govt setting up the Airline to be sold?
fark these corrupt bastards.
They are not telling us the truth. CONNING US AGAIN!

WHO OWNS WAQAVUKA INVESTMENTS which is the company that actually owns Fiji Airways planes?

I think Bai and Kai are getting money from WAQAVUKA INVESTMENTS and they will sell Fiji Airways INORDER TO HIDE THEIR CORRUPTION UNDER THE CARPET.

Anonymous said...

The Fiji Govt. as a shareholder of Fiji Airways is allocating $18m to the Airline...what for? who knows...

In a private company, it is only when the company is in need would shareholders be pitching in to salvage the operation or if they have some big plans up their sleeves. We only know that the airline will be leasing their next airbus, showing that there's not enough to buy/loan for a new one. Without any financials available for all tax payers to see, we can only guess what's going on inside our airline. Sure the new CEO has great plans...which two new prior CEOs didn't?

This is the interpretation of transparency under this government.

" The current flag will go on for another year or two."
What?!? the deadline was said to be December for submissions. Can Bainimarama by truthful to his word once in a while?

"There is no rush,right now it is better to generate ideas and hear the publics concerns that's what is happening and we have debates on any disagreements."

There are no discussions whatsoever right now in Fiji. Not a single mention in the news. No rush for sure. That is a poor attitude! What's the point of hearing the public's concerns when the public hasn't got a clue what a flag is supposed to be anyway? There is a flag someone put on Facebook some time ago (the simplified flag of Cakobau) which is perfectly fine and world class, so let's just move on with it. The people will get used to it very quickly, it's not only a much better concept but probably the most symbolic flag in the whole world!!! 5 stars for sure.

"However I can guarantee you we will have a new flag."
I hope so. The sooner the better, Fiji has to become a real independent nation with its own flag at last, it's about time!!!

I FIND it pathetic that SODELPA continues to try and derive support by bringing up nonsense issues regarding native land.

I believe native land has always been protected and continues to be so and because it makes up the majority of land I can't understand what the fuss is all about?

The question that needs to be asked is why the majority of this land isn't utilised? I believe the potential is huge, but all we hear is futile talk with little to no action.

Action speaks louder than words and it's about time SODELPA encourages their people to work hard and plant mahogany, yasi and other native trees on the vast amounts of land available to them.

Stop the nonsense and get down to the real business end of developing native land.

Turns out the whole of Fiji,their own Prime Minister and it's government are being imaginative and thinking outside the box.Isn't our agriculture sector booming?Isn't our agricultural exports reaching higher output achievements then any other government?Last month government gave out business grants for start ups and majority of receivers said it was for agriculture projects.So the land is being utilized for generating income and the rest probably is for themselves.

There’s certainly lots to be optimistic about on that front. The figures are encouraging. Thanks to this Government’s policies, we have seen five consecutive years of economic growth. Growth of 4.2 per cent in 2014 and similar growth forecast for in this year. Job advertisements up by 12.8 per cent. Low inflation between 0.1 and 0.2 per cent.

But I know that we as a nation can do better. We know that our potential is limitless if we work together as a united and proud nation to keep our reforms on track.

This budget is certainly good news for the country especially the reduction on VAT.If this government keeps performing on par for the next 2 years than they will win all 50 seats in the next election vinaka FF and to the nation and it's hard workers we shall reap the rewards.

The FijiFirst Government is to make our nation a clever country, a smart country, by giving all of our people the opportunity to gain an education. It’s not a pipe dream, as some might think. Because I’m convinced that when you give people an opportunity to learn by breaking down the barriers to education and especially the barrier of poverty they will seize it.

There is now no reason for any Fijian no matter what their background or family circumstances – to miss out on getting the best education they can. Our free schooling and the scholarships and tertiary loans we are providing have transformed the prospects of even the poorest Fijian children. We have given them the key to a life of opportunity through learning. We have given them the best chance any Fijian has ever had to carve out satisfying and worthwhile careers for themselves and contribute to the development of the nation. It is up to them to take that key and unlock the door to a world of opportunities. To work as hard as they can and to the best of their ability to acquire the skills they need and our nation needs to fulfill our collective dreams.

Team Fiji isn’t only about succeeding at the Rugby World Cup or in Football. It is about every Fijian treating the process of learning in the same way as mastering the skills of a game. The more skills each person masters whether it is in a trade or profession the stronger the intellectual capital of the national team. And just as our sporting teams punch above their weight in international competition, our workforce needs to do the same. For a small country such as ours to make a mark in the world, we need to be as disciplined and skillful as the best of our sportspeople. We need to play hard intellectually use our brains and acquire as much knowledge as we can.

What we are doing in the education system is to train our players and provide them with the best education we can afford. But if everyone embraces the value of learning and we work together intellectually as a team, I am certain we will be a clever country. It is only those among us with no imagination or the lazy who think it can’t be done. Because, yes we can! And when we do, there will be nothing to stop us achieving our dreams for ourselves and for each other.

This is why the FNU and USP is so important in our national life. A university with its sights set on excellence. A place where Fijians can learn the skills they need to make a mark on our nation, our region and the world. And the wonderful thing about FNU and USP is the hardheaded approach it brings to that process.

I find it quite stupid developing a budget without mentioning the amount of forever-piling debt that the regime has yet to clear out, especially that missing one million.

I won't be surprised if another random debt comes out from anywhere, especially this budget which I find quite underwhelming when the military gets a bigger piece of the pie....clearly uneven and unfair.

Its like a rarity for less money to be spent on the forever-abused military who is infamous for helping a couple of selfish individuals further their own personal agenda at the expense of the people since 1987.

Yes you are correct in that education is the key to advancing and whilst this government is pushing this why is it that the Methodist church is fighting against it and no one is doing anything about them.

How many children and students that have that opportunity or dream of advancing to FNU or USP are being held back by the Methodist churches practices?

Students are not performing in school as well as they could because some religious dinosaurs have decided to keep waking them during the entire night with their lali beating.

Some narcissistic loud mouthed preacher believes that it's best for everyone that they hear his raving at 3 in the morning but what would he know about the needs of others if it's not written in idols book of guidelines?

Then how about the worker that's pressured to attend the village Church service at 4 in the morning, because the ignorant church leaders believe pampering to them is far more important than family life and supporting your children or your employer.

Yes we should all be for education and support this government or any government in their endeavours to improve the life of all and the best way to support this is to come down hard on these Methodist leaders who are doing all they can to hold society back.

Feeji is getting more expensive for the poor.
I think it's about time to bring by income tax to 32% for the rich,
then 40% like in many other countries.
Why should someone earning 100 000$ in Fiji pay only 20 000$ when
in the US or Europe o koya would pay 50 000$?
Where is the logic?!?

If the rich want to stand with the poor (of course they don't want, but we can dream)
then they should pay their fair share. But they are talking kindly to Frank

I watched the budget announcement like many in Fiji with bated breath as i thought business people would get hammered once again. I was however relieved that the budget is not so bad after all. What i do find rather distressing is the continuous attempt by government to control everything. I am talking about the help line for doping in businesses who have not reduced prices on duty reduced items and vat the attempt to link cash registers to FIRCA etc. While to the ordinary layperson these would seem great measures to rain in the cheats their is an inherent danger in this which most will not see. This is ASK attempting to control the business world and is contrary to all doctrines of capitalism and free economies and i am surprised that accountants and people in the know have not cried foul yet. How will the consumer council know what the mark up for a particular product is for non PIB items as all business have different base mark ups. The point is if a subject business marks up more than his competitors he wont do well as customers are savvy and will buy where they get the best value. This is called market forces something which perhaps ASK cant get into his head.

A person starts a business for one simple reason and that is to make money. Most businesses are honest and pay their fair share. It is governments job to find the cheats like they do in all countries not introduce measures that defy the very idea of capitalism.

We may as well move to North Korea. Even China does not do this. This is as low as it can get.

We are truly living in LALA land. You know whats worse the opposition are so dumb they cant get past their Chiefs and the so called Vanua bull shit and argue about the issues that are on hand to show the people that they know how to run a country should they get into power. They probably don't even understand what capitalism is. We normal sensible people of this country are truly caught between the reincarnation of the devil FB and his hell hound ASK on one side and probably the dumbest opposition in the history of this country on the other. We might as well have 2 lamp posts fighting FF that's how dumb our opposition is.

You ask "Why should someone earning 100 000$ in Fiji pay only 20 000$"?

They actually pay slightly more but that's beside the point.

Those that do earn a living are getting tired of continually hearing about the poor and why they should support them more.

Many see the poor now as those that sit around a grog bowl all night and sleep in the day, the drunks on the street and when not drunk begging. Those that spend as much time in church as those that work toil to make a living.

It's the institutions that have allowed this to become the norm for some of the poor that have ruined societies support for the deserving poor.

BTW what if the ministry of education doesn't allow any repeaters in any class/form in our education system????
To me this equates to thousands of students will be going with the flow until they reach year 13/form seven so to speak...

Ok,from here they will definitely stand still and have to move out/dropped off/let out/kick out/forgotten/miss out/abandoned/blamed/ by the very system that put them in that situation.
Who will answer to the thousands of students who will be victims of this system?thousands in next year!year after next and so on and on....

Is there a support mechanism in place to take them in?

I suggest the ministry must be quick enough to detect slow learners and offer alternatives instead of wasting everyone's effort and in the end empty handed.

Established more technical/trade schools to cushion the impact it will have to the economy and negative impact to communities.
Are they budgeted???????????.....HAPPY DIWALI..!!!

KUA NI RERE said...

You are right.
You are 100% CORRECT in your analysis.

I look at what is happening to the Fijian people and I see QORVIS' hand in ALL this.

The TIN number (introduced by QORVIS) was not about making life easier , BUT AN ATTEMPT AT CONTROLLING THE PEOPLE....otherwise why the fark should an 89year old man living in his village in Kadavu need a farking TIN number for?

The e-ticketing system (introduced by QORVIS) was not about making public transport more efficient. No. It was all about Control.

In this budget you see GST on food items and goods that THE POOR need to survive will actually increase.

Again this is a deliberate attempt to push more Fijians into poverty.

They talk about FREE EDUCATION....but who gives a fark about free education when your dad has been sacked from his job and now YOU HAVE TO GO CLIMB COCONUT TREES AND SELL BU INORDER TO SURVIVE.So which one is it Feed the family or Go to school? Of course you need food to survive. Fark the school.
Dont get me wrong , I support Education wholeheartedly.
I graduated from USP + other tertiary institutions in Europe, NZ and Australia. I also taught at University. SO I UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF EDUCATION.


What is happening in Fiji now is a DELIBERATE, CONTRIVED AND CONCERTED EFFORT mainly masterminded by QORVIS and ratified by THE FARKED UP ULULALA Bainiamarama, to push down the Indigenous people.
If Fijians dont wake up, they will be in a deeper hole in 5 years time. Thanks to this BRAND NEW EDUCATION SYSTEM...
Again like I said this is a deliberate attempt by QORVIS to disempower the Indigenous Fijians.

Why ask if I go to church, are you suggesting that anyone who does should not dare question what it does and that only those that don't go would dare to speak out?

No we are not responsible for all of the poor, there are many poor who deserve it, some spend too much time in church rather than working or looking after a family. Some poor drink, grog and party their money away. Some of the church cause others not to be able to work and children to do poorly with their education.

Stop being led and ask yourself why more and more people are questioning the way the church is not helping poverty.

Fiji is a fairly free country with many nice people.

The problem is that we have fairly incompetent leaders and Opposition leaders.
Corruption is endemic, as soon as $$$$$ is involved, a lot of people are willing
to "sell their soul" to the biggest devil. Too many weak people unable to stand
up to moral principles.

There is a wide range of issues that we need to address and it will take some time before
we can overcome them, but one of the biggest problems is the underlying fear that still
exist in the background of our society. People won't speak their mind, will vote out of fear, etc.
Fiji's democracy is still in its infancy, but there is hope.

In such a context, the grassroot people have to be able to rally around symbols and values
that are meaningful to them. Something noble, not political parties, not any particular
religion or anything like that. We hate to love Fiji, no matter the problems, it's that simple.

Love demands sacrifices. Always.

KUA NI RERE said...

Bainimarama was beginning to feel the heat....ie his corruption and criminal activity was catching up with him and that is why he got rid of Groenwold.
Putting Qiliho as Police Commissioner is another strategic move by bainivuaka.
He knows that Qiliho can do a Coup against him so Bai has begun to move him away (from his solders).
Qiliho commands a lot of allegiance from the army and thats why he has been moved.
There are other people that could have been given this temporary job, including present Assistant Police Commissioners, but Bai put Qiliho there.
This is very strategic move.

Qiliho must now do two things, if he still wants to be relevant.
1) Firstly he must maintain contact or communication with his trusted Army Officer. And I'm not talking about Naipoto.
The longer he stays as Police Commish, the weaker will be his link with the army.

Bainimarama is very CORRUPT and sooner or later THERE WILL BE CONFLICT BETWEEN POLICE COMMISSIONER QILIHO and Bainimarama.
No IFs or BUTs. That will surely happen.


This is what I think Bainimarama will do next: HE WILL TRY AND GET RID OF QILIHO....or render him useless...just like Groenwold when he started.
He will try and get rid of Qiliho by either sacking him (not right now because Qiliho still has influence with army) or SENDING HIM AWAY FOR A POSTING OVERSEAS.

My advice to Qiliho is : Bainimarama will use you to his advantage. HE DOESN'T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT YOU. HE IS FARKING NARCISSISTIC ( go read up the definition of that word)). He only cares about himself.
You know what is the RIGHT thing to do.
You are getting on in life and one day soon you have to face up to God and give an account.

This guy fucked up the trade union negotiations no having a clue how he should apply govt. policy and negotiate in a strategic manner. Rt Epeli Ganilau would have been just as bad if not worse than either two mentioned above. Enough of this typical useless military shit who keep getting placed up there. We need real statesmen, not military people who think the country owes them a taxpayer funded lifestyle. They have never proven themselves to defend the country and its people against an external enemy or threat and shed their blood for that matter. But they like to parade their glittering medals on their chest for fucking useless taxpayer-funded peacekeeping missions which bring nothing but misery to the people. Shameless gutless cowards are all they are!

Our livelihood in the tourism industry is just being slapped with additional cost to our products charged on our tourists. Meanwhile this motherfucker chingy-eyed regime cock sucker DIXON SEETO, who purports to be a fighter for the industry is nowhere to be heard or seen fighting our cause. This idiot is probably somewhere sucking Aiyaz's tiny weeny uncircumcised cock or getting rooted up the rear, all the while heaping praises 'what brilliant budget, what a brilliant budget' And likewise for his overrated undersexed wife who knows everything about anything. These leeches should exterminated from society.

Yes, why are the FF supporters harping about the reduction of VAT when the reduction will be implemented also on the current zero rated items like flour, tea, tin fish,etc. These items are now VAT free but the reduction to 9% will also affect these zero rated items.

This is daylight robbery by Govt. and their stupid followers

ACTUALLY its like this. With a Military run government like ours, there is NOTHING anyone can say or do. WE ARE NOT A DEMOCRACY remember?? The facts, the truths uttered are like feathers blown about in the wind.

May I remind you that we have lost all sense of JUSTICE for Fiji!!!

Sadly the current circumstances will remain in force for as long as we have the same people in power.

And so we will be taken for a good ride by these ruthless Leaders of the Fiji First Government.

Actually they are convinced we are idiots. One has to look at the outright lies and the in-your-face corruptive behavior going on with Frank and Aiyaz at the lead.
