Wants something, might get it

Rabuka seems to be the expert on the current situation in Fiji at the moment.

His weekly insights and daily incisions into the state of affairs just provides me with more laughter.

Of course, I will defend his right to death to speak whatever he wants to go on about. He is entitled to do so by law. He has the protection of the constitution (thats pretty dicey at the moment).

But every time he speaks, I can’t but think he is a flip-flopper. You don’t know if he’s coming or going.

He seems to defend the military council and their pathetic attempts to make policy decisions regarding Fiji. Then he will go on about how Bainimarama did the right thing and the righteousness of the interim government’s actions. One example was the banning of the Charter buffoons from his province by the more ‘grassroots’ chiefs.

Then he will make the comment every now and again on matters that he doesn’t like. Such as the GCC, Chaudhry among other things.

Its a bit rich to be going on about this stuff when it was your bloody stupidity that caused this in 1987.

He does this for two reasons:

1) Curry favour with the RFMF and interim government. He has raised their ire with his actions during the 2000 coup (and yes I did personally witness him with his Army uniform on. That will never leave my memory as it was just something I couldn’t believe) and his close associations with Fijian nationalism (SVT and the lot). Rabuka just says whatever will keep the military on his side. He wants his life membeship of the GCC which gives him plenty of ego tripping among other things. Stroke their back and get a nice massage in return.

2) To prevent alienating grassroots Fijians. If he put all his eggs in one basket with the junta, he might find his own lot strapping him to a spinning wheel and throwing cane knives just to see how much he will squirm.

Populism is the word. A bit rich for a guy that kept on bleating about Indians early in the piece. Now you’re cosying up. How can someone have scruples when they just flip flop on major issues?

Keep it coming mate. You might find that some people make unusual friendships.

    You know what TWF I was watching a guy the other day driving this ridiculous motorcycle with the handle bars so far up in the air, he looked like an ape.

    Someone told me those handle bars are actually called APE HANGERS – I don’t know why I thought of Rabuka at that particular revelation, but there you go ……. perhaps there’s your answer.

    I think Rabuka is trying his best to get a place in this regime. That’s true TWF, everytime he speaks on radio & TV I feel like ******* on his face, sa oti la noda gauna da tiko vakamalua, baleta ni da tamata cala ! ! !

    Rabuka is a shameless opportunist but is also an experienced and shrewd politician.

    He continues to have significant connections in the military and the various factions forming around our dim-witted interim Prime Minister.

    If this interim government writes Rabuka off as an insignicant annoyance, it could very well be the last mistake they ever.

    I don’t support or even like the skank but one has to admit, politically, he’s one resilient mother f@#$%.

    Frank and others close to him may publicly refute that Rabuka is a threat to their regime, but I bet you anything they sleep with one eye open every night.
