COUPSTER verses COUPSTER: Despite Dictator Frank Bainimarama's shortcomings on balance sheet his record less BRUTAL than Rabuka's when the two (IF) pitch for Non-Native Votes in the 2018 General Election
One wonders whether Indo-Fijian voters (and their children who were not even born in 1987) will ever forgive Sitiven Rabuka for the violence and brutality he and his henchmen had unleashed in the name of
In the last week, Professor Wadan Narsey and I have received a stream of threatening e-mails from one calling himself/herself Ranvir Singh; Singh to Victor Lal: 'You know you were dumb, you got kicked out, you cant enter Fiji, the Indians love Frank You know why? The Day Frankie is out, the Indians are fucked!; Your next visit to Fiji will be a memorable one for you, brother Sayed-Khaiyum is waiting anxiously- just don't bend down to pick up the soap in Naboro Prison'
Our IT experts at Fijileaks have cracked Ranvir Singh's real identity and we will expose the person!

A rock and a hard place dichotomy applies when assessing who was a more brutal coupster and ruler - Rabuka (1987 ) or Bainimarama(2006) .

Race was NEVER the reason for the Rabuka coup. It was to get the defeated Alliance Party back in power by the other door ( the coup door ). But that could not be said openly and publicly. So all the bullshit about " Indian domination " and native Fijians being swamped in their own " God given land " was cooked up as a convenient scapegoat . The Indo- Fijians became innocent victims in this power game hatched up by the dishonest Alliance politicians and their cronies . The curse of the suffering and brutalised Indo- Fijians is still hanging over the country. Bainimarama's rise to power and his cosmetic changes - name change and constitution change and flag change etc - has not made any real difference to things in the country in so far as restoration of good democratic governance is concerned.

The Alliance lost because they couldn't get enough votes... Would they have win without Indians? If the answer is 'yes', then the bullshit about Indian domination was no bullshit in the eyes if the nationalists.

I would vote for Bainimarama any day over Rabuka. People should ask his role in the mutiny also where while PM he got his millions from to buy his 1,000 acre plus Valavala freehold estate in Vanua Levu. And why he lost the two other jobs he has held -- running a ferry company and running an investment company in Suva? And there are some who seriously consider him to be PM material. Amazing.
Truly the saviour

If Bainimarama had not come into power in 2006, the qoli qoli and RTU bills would have come into power. Qoliqoli would have destroyed the mainstay of the economy-tourism just as ethnic conflcit and non renewal of land leases destroyed sugar. Today, some of the ethnocentric approaches that were the norm previously are no longer mainstream, thanks again to Bainamarma. Despite what his detractors say, Bainimarama has done immense good to this country.

Rabuka's claim that there was NO OTHER WAY other than a coup was a sprurious claim, a lie just as Bainimarama's claim that HE HAD TO TAKEOVER to " clean up " was a lie. A coup was never a necessity in a small Pacific island country like Fiji, which did not even need to struggle to obtain Independence from British colonial rule.

Truly the Savior! I give Frank that. Yes he did stop the QoliQoli Bill via the coup. But what has he done since then for the tourist industry.

Rabuka looks like a saint compared to Bainimarama/Kaiyum. There was corruption under Rabuka. But the present ones have redefined what corruption is. Now sums with 4-zeros are not even accepted. If you dont have 5-zeros+ in your bribe bag, dont even start thinking of bribing big shots. Ask John Prasad, former PS Finance.

Comparing the two coupsters, one is an Officer and a gentleman, the other is a narcissist and a marchiavellian. That speaks volume of who needs to be trusted.

"An officer and a gentleman'????

What difference does it make to the victims or families of dead victims who was more or who was less brutal Rabuka or Bainimarama?
