On May 5 2008, LF had published a post with this title: WRONG WRONG WRONG.

Then it was in response to the expulsion of NZ High Commissioner Russell Hunter. Read Here

Some 7 months later, LF is shocked at the irresponsible and petulant manner in which New Zealand's acting high commissioner, Caroline McDonald has been expelled.

Ms McDonald was informed that she has been declared "persona non-grata" and had been given one week to leave Fiji.

Such an action is bereft of any logic or will achieve any political objective.

It is the action of individuals who have lost touch with reality.

At a time of soaring inflation and record unemployment, Fiji needs NZ and Aust.

Both countries desperately need seasonal workers for agriculture, mining and to provide care to their elderly.

Before Christmas 700 visas were issues to workers from PNG, Vanuatu and Solomons to work in Australia. NZ has a similar scheme operating and many Fijians had gained from this or stood to gain from it.

Thats all gone now. Years and years of lobbying at the Pacific Forum by Pacific leaders had led to such a fundamental shift in Australian and NZ policy.

Forget it now.

Merry Xmas

Well it is that time again
Time to unwrap gifts, dig the lovo, and hope it doesn't rain

It is time to reflect and say thanks
It has been an eventful year, thanks to some cranks

But it is not the time to be grumpy
Lets just be happy, we all know the road at times can be bumpy

Lets remember some of our friends
With whom we had had some fun and for the good times, say thanks

To all who hid behind WhyFijiiscrying and now its clone, Solivakasama
We say Merry Christmas, to you, your friends and your bubu, big mama

You think you are so smart, your identities are known to no one
C'mon, don't insult us, ask anyone at USP, Pacific Magazine,or even Fiji One

You don't have to be Einstein, you don't have far to go
FYPCN, 5 letters, thats all you need to know

We don't publish bomb making instructions like Solivakasama and WFC
The people will decide who they trust, you wait and see

No wonder WFC changed its name to Solivakasama
All that hate, target soldiers families, bomb tourists, geez its enough to scare all but Osama

We are the Loyal Fijian
Its not a name, its an identify, a place for news, views and some fun

Some much speculation, and rumours about our identity, is it him, we, he or she?
Its been there all along, just read under Who are we?

You will notice we are not publishing any names
LF High Command says we wont drop to your level, we wont be like you, be so hateful and lame

No copy and pasting paragraphs from Fijilive and Fijitimes online editions here
We publish our original thoughts without favour or fear

So this Christmas, sleep tight at Dilo Street
Santa Claus will be coming with a sackful of treats

Merry Christmas to Dan the Man
Let it be known Dan, we are not your foes but your fans

Merry Christmas to Bainivore, to you we say Ho Ho Ho
What a name, but hey you reap what you sow

Merry Christmas to FijianBlack
Kai, see you at Traps, lets down some Fiji Bitter, down the big dark neck

Merry Christmas to Keep the Faith
Lets have lunch, low fat, Im watching my weight

Thank you to one and all for your emails and feedback
We are glad that you enjoyed our work, even you at FICAC

Our poem on the lovely Lisa, the Admin Manager at FICAC sent the server into meltdown
Except from the Attorney General, who threatened to sue and chase us out of town

Isnt it amazing how we do this each time
Make it all so funny and make it rhyme

FICAC Gets First Conviction, at last

That much derided entity, FICAC managed to secure its first conviction.

A former accounts clerk for the Wainikoro Fisheries Co-operative was sentenced to 18 months in jail in the Labasa Magistrates Court yesterday, for stealing money amounting to about $3000 from the co-operative’s account.

Readers will be aware of Moti "Cowboy" Rattan up in Babasiga throwing his weight around after the coup as the local sheriff after he managed to get a FICAC badge.

He was running after refrigerators that Survivor crew had donated to Labasa Old Peoples Home.

Well it appears that Cowboy didn't have everything his way and he himself was subject of an internal investigation.

So it must come as a huge relief to FICAC Northern Division now that it has has managed to get a first conviction.

FICAC Deputy Commissioner George Langman said the conviction and sentence was testament of the tireless effort of the Commission’s officers.

Wooooo Hooooo

Yeah right.

And the big fish just swim on.

Caucau is Back, well almost

Caucau used to be so fast, so full of fury

Right now, he is full of too many stubbies and goat curry


He had a go at being an All Black

Instead he has put on the kilo, stack after stack


He used to throw a side step followed by a  dip

Now he looks like he has swallowed a sheep


Serevi wants him in his side

Maybe he can give him some advice


Cut back on the Fiji Bitter

Its not making you any fitter


If you want to win the Melrose Cup

You better go easy on the beef rump


Now he has signed a contract to play in France

He says he can still show the swerve and dance


He has some problems understanding French

He also thinks the French give off a stench


But now he is back to Agen in the summer

Just wait and watch, he will be back home after he has done a runner


Caucau has talent, no doubt about it

But there isn't much else going for him, mark us to it


Isnt it funny how we do this every time

Make it all so funny and make it rhyme
