OPPOSITION MP Gavoka is confused. He suggests I respect democracy (17/7). When I asked the reason for submitting a petition protesting the conversion of the Nadroga/Navosa High School (15/7), wasn’t I exercising my democratic right? My tau, real democracy requires respect for human rights.
IN a letter (FT 19/07) L H Narayan is of the opinion that “nowhere in the Bible are Christians instructed to pray the Lord’s prayer. How about Matt. 6: 9-13. “you must pray, then, this way. our father in the heavens…..” Is he just teasing or serious?

A BANK teller jokingly asked if I wanted cockroach or small change on my withdrawal. She was referring to the hundred dollar bill.
CONGRATULATIONS to Papua New Guinea for winning this year’s Pacific Games. The Government had a big say at the end of the day motivating and supporting athletes with the prize of K20,000 ($F15,467) for gold, K10,000 ($F7733) for silver and K5,000 ($F3866) for bronze.
WE won? Yes, Fiji beat Tonga. Go Fiji, go!
I DON’T get it. The tickets to the Fiji-Tonga game had section, row and seat allocation and the stadium seats were appropriately marked accordingly. However, it was “sit anywhere within your section”. This caused confusion and unnecessary squabbles over seats for some patrons.
I CONGRATULATE all the Fiji athletes who took part in the 2015 Pacific Games. To Banuve Tabakaucoro and Sailasa Kalouniviti, you make us proud. Must be the Ra blood you have that makes the whole country proud. Ma e na ma e.

I BELIEVE Dr Mahendra Reddy’s services would be better utilised in the Ministry of Agriculture. He makes more sense here.
WONDER how long will it take bus oil leaks to colour the new bus stand?
