FTIB Investments Down

March 31, 2010

The latest investment figures from FTIB (Frank’s Trollop in Bed) CEO Annie Rogers looks like she is truly struggling to get it up. However the latest goss from Suva’s coffee shops is that unable to produce serious investment results she has resorted to her old trollop ways known to ol Marist boys by bonking the boss man up at the camp to keep her job. Meanwhile our man in black cool rhythm guitarists at the Down Under nite spot was given a black eye by fuming missus after being caught inflagrante delecto down the Domain.

 Annie must realise that she is an appointee of Frank’s junta which means that all her words and actions will be stripped down and scrutinized like never before. And that winning investors confidence is a totally different ball game from trekking and forecasting historical and futuristic economic data she is used to given the nose diving economy. She needs to get a grip of the problem and be a hustler- as an investment watchdog that is.

    Bula Katalina,

    I did email the 3 TV channels asking if it could be highlighted in any of their current affairs programme the way in which the Rudd Government acted when aid was given to Fiji after Cyclone Tomas. Only ABC was kind enough to reply. I did include your comments as I thought it said it all.

    Comment: Dear Mr O’Brien

    We, a group of very staunch democratic believers are very concerned with the manner in which the Australia Government have given assistance to ravaged Fiji after huricane Tomas. The Australia Government have given willingly without taking into consideration that 3 years after the rape of a democratic elected Government by Frank Bainimarama and his cohorts it seems the Rudd Government have accepted the illegality of Fiji’s Military Regime.

    We realize that in the eyes of the world, Australia being one of Fiji’s neighbours is obligated to assist through “humanitarian needs” but the least they could have done when they pledged their assistance is to mention something about the illegality of Fiji’s military regime. They acted like all was well in Fiji.

    Below, are comments made by a blogger in a discussion we have had on the only source that is available to us to express our opinions etc. This is because of the media censorship by Fiji’s Military Regime. I have also included the link to the website that is trying extremely hard to expose the misdeeds of the illegal junta.

    Rosalind / Senijiale we are in agreement on all counts except for my original position. None of us is going to convert here. Believe it or not I don t shell one red cent even as my province and families are hardest hit. They can take and they can use a little more suffering as far as I am concerned as price tag for their chiefs who concocted this coup with Bainimarama. Last years flood drive we did here should not have happened and I knew at the time we were carrying it out it was a mistake. I either fight the regime or join them. It s that simple. There aren t and should no longer be any grey areas in the hopes that the grassroots will be unhappy enough to rise up against this regime. And yes, it is usually the way the only way dictators are taken out none have ever just walked away willingly.

    I maintain that Australia and NZ, like me, should help the grassroots by not helping. They come here to gauge people s opinions I want them to know am unhappy with them responding even if it is a drop in the ocean as you put it Rosalind and as far as import and export goes, where else would Fiji buy those lamp shanks, mutton, among other things if not Australia, NZ and we are most certainly not able to produce our own. We are in the fight for our future generations now and every little help to get us to the finish line should be exhausted. A lot of sufferings is the usual price tag.

    Australia and NZ are quoted above responding to the call from the Fiji government the word interim is missing. Fiji Times would have done a better job. And why is this regime calling to these two countries after all the shyte they have dished. Is anyone else reporting similar calls to China, India.

    Please Mr O’Brien can you take the time to read what we have tried to discuss and perhaps give us the time to express our feelings on your programme or some other ABC programme.

    Thank you and hope to hear from you soon.

    Rosalind Pratt,

    Dear Rosalind,

    Thank you for taking the time to write.

    Your concerns about the manner in which the Australian Government has given assistance to Fiji following huricane Tomas have been noted, and have been passed to the program’s senior producers for their consideration.

    We will certainly keep the points you have raised in mind for future political interviews.

    Kind regards,
    The 7.30 Report

    Bula Rosalind

    Great idea and thank you for doing something

    Perhaps a gutsy journalist in your neck of the woods would indeed ask the tough questions to current administration make it known that they defeat our purpose by enabling.

    My I suggest, that the Australian Government is between a rock and a hard place.
    Humanitarian aide should not depend on Political Issues etc.
    It is by it’s nature, for Humanity !
    Were the Australian government to with hold aid, what psychological effect would that have on fijians and how would that assist our long term goal of returning Fiji back to Democracy ?
    to ignore the cry for help, would do nothing for our course and to be quite frank, Australians can’t turn their backs on their neighbors.
    I feel that the quick action of the Australian Government, has in itself done far more good than harm, in the long run, and has strengthened an already strong bond between it and the people of Fiji, and in so doing, has proved that Democracy works.
    This one action, I suggest, has done immeasurable good for our Democracy Movement.
    The pitfalls within the fijian Regime will now become apparent and the Regime can’t blame the australian and New Zealand governments.
    Also, our aid has highlighted the foolishness of the Regime in seeking the support of the Indian and chinese governments, who has virtually nothing but loans to offer in this crisis.
    So may, just maybe, the Governments of Australia and New Zealand, have done exceedingly well and have created a way forward and back to Democracy.
    Don’t despair that in the short term it appears the Regime has been helped, they haven’t the people of Fiji have been !

    Point taken Mark —

    Because I thought though all of that

    But comes a time when exercising “1st_s” becomes the order of the day

    At least for now we are telling the governments of the day that there are other options

    One of which is

    To do nothing

    And let the chips fall where they may

    Or call it tough love

    Tough love works too

    I commend the Rudd labour gorvernment for the aids to Fiji as well as our neighbour across the tasman.The people of Fiji all over the world will never forget the acts of kindness you have shown us during hurricane Tomas.

    My democracy movements(solivakasama worldwide movement for a better Fiji) and it’s members is very much concern with human rights abuse that is going on in that country and we will
    stay on the course until all those who are responsable are brought to justice.

    Read this part of my email to the TV channels again please.

    “We realize that in the eyes of the world, Australia being one of Fiji’s neighbours is obligated to assist through “humanitarian needs” but the least they could have done when they pledged their assistance is to mention something about the illegality of Fiji’s military regime. They acted like all was well in Fiji.”

    In no way I was knocking the aid given to Fiji after huricane Tomas, I was merely saying that there was no mention of the illegality of Frank Bainimarama’s government when the aid money was given. I was very happy with the reply I received as they seemed to have taken into account and are aware of my concerns. People become complacent and like Katalina said the word “interim” has been dropped whenever Fiji’s coup government is mentioned these days.

    Bula Rosalind – appreciate all you’ve done, vinaka!

    Bula Katalina – you do drive a hard bargain and it’s probably seen as too drastic a measure, too premature? but mostly too hard to stomach for the majority here (because deep down they’re still lamu like me!) esp. given the dreadful consequences that’ll surely follow. I’d rather have dictatorship regimes vanish into neverneverland without having blood on our hands. Yes, I can hear you say “wishful thinking” – it is!

    But I understand where you’re coming from and I guess one could argue that either way Fiji will get there either way anyway (if world history is anything to go by). So it’s either the people organize regardless, get out there and demonstrate their deep disapproval at the way they’ve been ‘governed’ and prepare to suffer the consequences that will follow as a worthy price to pay for their freedom to live their lives with dignity… but get it over with NOW anyway so they can move on… OR continue to procrastinate as they’re doing now and continue to pray hard like hell that a miracle would happen that‘ll remove the military junta off their backs so they can move on to having a meaningful representative government of the people, by the people and all that.

    I don’t know what’s the answer – it’s the people who’ll hve to decide – when they’ve had enough and which way to go in order to change their imposed circumstances.

    For those devastated by Hurricane Tomas, i’ve already said my piece so I’ll hve to agree with Manning and Rosalind. But don’t you agree that having their most basic needs met by the Oz and Kiwi governments just helps them to get there quicker in terms of thinking about their collective future under a military dictatorship instead of worrying about surviving on a coconut and the night out in the rain and cold?

    I tendered my resignation long ago giving aid to fiji; be it families, friends, schools, church.

    Man made disaster and natural disaster should get the same treatment

    – from us
    – from our neighboring countries
    – from the world at large

    Fijians suffer a hell of a lot more and longer from the regime disaster than they ever did any flood, cyclone or hurricane so it would be ideal to keep your helicopters, navy ships and jetliners grounded UNTIL such a time when the cavalry can move to hover around Delainabua and root out our primary source of hardship as I believe It is your obligation to assist through “humanitarian needs” but it appears you have chosen to turn a blind eye to this brand of suffering.

    Leave natural disasters alone UNLESS you give the same attention to the regime disaster.

    I wonder if this junta followed the lead from the Burmese junta, and tinkered with the emergency supplies from foreign governments.

    Remember how the green goons in Burma ripped off, or covered up any markings on tents, rations, etc and then placed a notice on the packets saying that this relief has been provided by General Fgmjhkhk?.

    It wouldn’t surprise me to find out that bananasinpyjamas and dimwiti were up all night sticking their photos on all of the relief supplies.

    Senijiale bula vinaka

    In agreement to a limited degree since it has been 3 years, 3 months of thinking and contemplating and there is nothing left to wonder about or second guess for it is very clear these dictators intend to be around beyond 2014. We are a patient people and we need a good hard kick to get moving. I realize too it is new for Australia and NZ too to hear perhaps that one on this camp is unhappy with assistance. And especially hard for those at home. Am not sorry though to say it will not change my tune because It is hard for all of us.

    It’s “sis”, bro.

    Well thanks for being honest but I’m not here because of you. Besides you need me more than I need to be here since someone has to tell you some bare truths about what you’re doing wrong. You may now call me Angel Senijiale 🙂

    About last year. Well I can’t remember what I said to you then but it must have been justified. What I do know FOR CERTAIN is that I would never have sworn at the people from your island, you may hve confused me with other bloggers and y’see, that’s gona the problem when you decided to play ‘God’ on SV deleting bloggers at will and defeating the whole purpose and meaning of ‘Solivakasama’.

    Anyway, water under the bridge now. No one is perfect, we all learn as we go along. Happy Easter SWM.

    I have read what senijiale had to say on the other solivakasama site and sadly like she says for the “sake of transparency” I am in agreement with her though wouldn’t put it as blantantly as she has. The only reason I would hold back is because I feel sorry for you and am indebted to you for giving us an outlet to vent our frustrations and express our feelings and thoughts.

    I feel I need to explain myself as I am certain the TV channels that I have emailed will be tunning in to gauge our thoughts, ideas, feelings etc about the unfortunate situation in a country that is very dear to our hearts. We are all hurting, it is not you alone.

    Surely you could allow us bloggers to discuss topics in a civil manner on your blog without coming to conclusion that we are attacking you and then always reminding us that you are the owner.

    After reading your comments I feel my emails to the TV channels was a waste of time as I needed back up from Solivakasama after mentioning the site and the comments made by Katalina, a long time campaigner who taught me not to be afraid and to speak out in what I believe in.

    I am sorry but I’ve tried to hang in there and this blogsite was the only source available to me to have my say but it has become mentally exhausting and I have had enough.

    Thank you, good luck and please accept my wishes

    Last question Epi – and please indulge me since I’m much more curious than insulted… but I’ve never, ever, not once, or at any time, ever pretended to be a ‘he’ (since I’m quite happy with what God intended me to be – a ’she’, a female, a woman), so why do you insist on trying to make me out as a ‘he’, a man, a male??

    Vinaka Soko, that was very helpful.

    I see… you insist on calling me a ‘bro’ and ‘he’ since you simply can’t stand being beaten by a girl. Oh well, that’s your problem, poofta.

    As I said earlier, I don’t really need to be here. You have a lot to learn and a long way to go, bro. Perhaps you should rename your blog ‘Epi Worldwide Movement’ since you have no idea what democracy really means. SWM is a sinking ship. Tragic.

  29. April 5, 2010 6:09 PM

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. Nevertheless imagine if you added some great
    pictures or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your
    content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this blog
    could certainly be one of the very best in its field.

    Amazing blog!

    Hey there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to
    know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
