Fiji Dollar Devalued

April 15, 2009

Just recently we can confirm that the Fiji Dollar has been evalued by 20%.

For you Indians still supporting this coup remember how a 10kg of rice went up from $16 to $32 at the supermarket after the flood, well if the price has not changed till now be prepared for another price hike to either $38 or $40 instantly!!

Be prepared for the $100,000 Fiji Dollar bill like our sister basket case banana republic Zimbabwe pictured here

Very soon when Brij Prasad of Bulabula in Ba goes to buy a loaf of Bread, this is the typical picture of what he will be doing.

Thank you all the Indians and 5% Fijian giving 100% support to Mahend Chaudary, Aiyaz Khaiyum, Shaista Shameem and Bainimarama.

Welcome to the Banana Republic and the Dysfunctional Leaders we have waited for for so long!!!!

    devaluation if we have a robust export base would be good. But we have a dwindling & sick export base, countries are cutting back on their imports and countries like fiji will suffer more as they will buy less. Imports will be expensive, and prices will hike locally after this devalaution. Imagine the cost of food, kerosene, fuel, car parts, medicine, etc. & its impact on the common people. Wages will not rise. Toruism after the scrapping of the constitution will go under. Govt coffers running dry. Things dont look too good for Fiji. Next up, may be exhorbitant increase in taxes to prop up the military regime?may be. Is this part of the scenario envisaged by the socialist planners of the coup? An engineered collapse I mentioned @ the beginning of the coup out of which they will build a new order? A masonic socialist dialectical development model? The collapse, well we are not there yet, but its coming soon.

    There is a great assumption that people will want to continue to trade with Fiji under this regime and that Tourism will grow !
    Although the number of people travelling to Fiji may be increasing , the amount of money they are spending , is %50 less than in 2006 !

    So , effectively , Fiji’s economy is going backwards , not forward at all .
    And it’s by the right , quick March ,
    your left , left left left left left left
    about face , by the right
    your left your left your left your left

    Yes Tonto , but it’s okay , the Commode is taking us forward to prosperity !

    Newspaper publishers set up Fiji info site
    Last updated 16:52 14/04/2009 Share Print Text Size
    The expulsion of journalists from Fiji and crackdown on civil liberties is deplored by New Zealand’s Newspaper Publishers’ Association and its Media Freedom Committee.

    The NPA is encouraging a freer flow of information from Fiji by setting up a dedicated email site.

    “The Bainimarama regime may be able to muzzle the Fiji media but it can’t control internet access and completely cut off the country,” NPA chief executive Tim Pankhurst said.

    He said anyone in Fiji, or anywhere else, who had relevant comments or pictures or video could post them to the new address freefiji@newspapers.co.nz.

    The site will be monitored by the NPA and any news arising will be circulated by the New Zealand Press Association.

    “Bainimarama is a bully who gets more dangerous by the day,” Mr Pankhurst said.

    “It is vital his illegal regime gets full scrutiny and that we support our Fijian journalist colleagues and all those concerned with free speech and a prosperous and inclusive Fiji as much as possible.”

    This is a very intelligent approach indeed .
    Let Australia and New Zealand also withdraw aide of any kind and let the Islanders beat each other over the heads with clubs and just wait and see who’s standing .
    Either way , they will be asking again for Australian and New Zealand aide , in the long run !
    Who is this silly person , do they want the conflict to spread to the rest of the Pacific nations ?
    Can’t they see that the Chinese and Indian Governments may be the ones behind this coup and that their goal is total annihilation of the Pacific Island economies and their Culture ?
    To support this coup now or to entertain a dialogue with a rogue Commander who was about to be arrested for Sedition and questioned about his alleged role in the murder of 5 C.R.W. soldiers in 2000 , is like sitting down and making a treaty with Hitler .
    By the way , they tried that and it didn’t work then either !

    Fijians do eat rice too, so it is not only our ind’bros. who’ll feel the pinch. Or am i missing the point here ????

    Well, it was inevitable in some respects. It’s going to hit the poor hardest, yet again. That snake the malodorous Chodokant, who has been lying to the Sugar Community ever since he first drew political breath, can surely no longer continue to pull the wool over their eyes? Brothers and sisters, can you not see that this man is not your saviour, he is your demise? And still his $2million dollars remains in his personal overseas bank accounts instead of helping you, which is what he pretended it was for. Now that the dollar has devalued, please renew your calls for him to bring his donation money into the country to help your community. And watch him balk at the idea, harumph and bluster, and fail (once again) to do the right thing. Ditch the snake and embrace democracy. It will help all of us, not just Chodo and his henchmen.
    God bless Fiji

    This person needs to be told that Fiji does not need the kinds of views that lends support to our dictator

    This person needs to be told further

    That the country’s legal fraternity, backed by the people of Fiji will take care of our business

    We do not need sorry little countries like the Kiribati’s lending support to our suppressor

    Blog spot Talking Fiji noticed the oddity of the closure of the FHRC. The Police Commissioner’s office was not closed. We have a theory that it’s more than just trying to appear consistent. We think the closure raises the prospect that Shyster has a bigger calling as Chief Justice. With her as CJ who would need a Human Rights Commission? Also she might not like the idea of a successor who could go through all her files emails and uncover who knows what.

    @ FDN: Shaista as CJ? My goodness! Could she live down such a neo-colonial title? I’m sure she’d find a way to cope, and think of all that Bob Marley she could have impounded.

  19. April 15, 2009 12:57 PM

    Sh*tstir won’t leave the UN gravy train. That’s a sinecure for life. They can’t get rid of her except via promotion. If she dumps a UN position in favour of CJ which has no secure future, she’s more stupid that I would ever have thought possible.
    God bless Fiji

    We all know the hijacking of our country is going to hit the poor through food price rises but that’s not the end of it.

    In September 2006 the legal government of Fiji raised US$150 million in an international bond float. (The illegal government couldn’t raise $1.50 on the international bond
    market.)

    Check it out on

    http://www.rnzi.com/pages/news.php?op=read&id=26805

    If the debt from that float equaled about FJ$300 million on Tuesday, today it’s $360 million. That’s $60 million right of the pockets of Fiji taxpayer.

    That’s $60 million that cannot go to people in need, cannot pay for basic medical treatment, schools repairs, roads, water supplies etc etc, all the things we know have gone

    With the 20 percent depreciation what happens to the loan taken out by the crooks at the helm of Fijian Holdings Limited? Maybe they don’t know yet, because they’re all economic illiterates, but it doesn’t look good. Maybe they have a loan that allows the Fiji currency to depreciate at will, with a slightly higher interest rate to reflect the guarantee (try a million percent).

    To anyone that understands the realities of commerce (you can leave the room Budhau) the devaluation must be a disaster for the purchase of BP, if in fact it’s actually nailed down.

    Mind you, BP lawyers will now be looking at the question of whether they have a contract of sale or not. The government that appointed the directors who approved the sale with them has been rule illegal, so what does this mean for the sale?

    Just a small glimpse into the future chaos that the illegal and incompetent bunch of crooks have brought upon us.

    @ Corruption Fighter!

    Never you mind about the crooks that are economic illiterate what about the ordinary citizens of Fiji that are still supporting Frank the Crank even after they read how much the country will be affected after the devaluation of the Fiji dollar.

    One would think these people never had an education – silly foolish suckers!

    @CF
    If as you say the $150 m loan was approved under the Qarase government, when was the drawdown on the loan? I assume it took place under the Illegal Regime. That means it went into the hands of none other than Chodopu$$, the
    villain who is still lurking in the background of this unfolding tragedy.

    Do we have any explanation of what happened to the $150 million? It was probably this loan that allowed the regime to avoid devaluation up till now. Some of it may have made its way off-shore. Who knows?
