STOP PRESS: Dr Weber heads out revolving door at USP Journalism, citing favouritism, lack of consultation, unethical pressure on him - his former predecessor Shailendra Singh in line of fire over study leave!
"The main cause of my concern emerged when the former head of the department Shailendra Singh decided just 2 weeks before semester to apply (and be granted)

The joke among journalism students is that Sudesh Mishra has a big man-crush on Doctor Matthew Thompson, who was hired without any consultation with Ian Weber. As Weber says, Mathew is a creative writer with no journalism degrees or media studies degrees.

This guy Ian Webber is well known among USP journalism students and Fiji media for using USP journalism to build contact with UN and secure job and consultancies. Another one of those expats to use USP as a stepping stone.

Fiji and USP is not the only stepping stone in the whole universe for the expats of this caliber. They may have personal reasons to choose Fiji. But they certainly do bring a wealth of knowledge, exposure and experience to the dot on the map

What so special about journalists?? The ones before didn't do degrees. U just learn to read and write like everyone else and if it interests you, do it!! They are a bunch of idiots anyway.
Integrity and professionalism?

What integrity and professionalism Dr Webber? You were involved in an affair with a married junior staff, which was obvious to all students. You know where the affair led to. Your HOS saved your sorry arse. With you it was one drama after another that we the students could have done without .Your departure is a blessing in disguise.

It's ok to have affairs since you are protected by the boss. Sudesh knew,didn't do anything.why? It didn't involve non Pacific Islanders! After all Sudesh brings and protects expats and then they fail him.poor chap doesn't know what do except write poems anyway.

So 'integrity & professionalism' see's fit to self-appoint himself as the morality police yet fails to negotiate the forests from the trees. We've seen our fair share of morality policing happen before thanks to the illegal & treasonous regime, yet the action taken is selective.

This fellow called Sudesh Mishra who Ian is referring to as HOS slam must be sacked. He was sacked by VC for FNU for lunatic behaviour. since he came to usp and became head, he has tried to oppress all Pacific islanders, no wonder he got rid of nash. he is against women of Pacific islander origin. Recently he went mad during a official function at USP swearing with the f word against senior management team where VC chandra was also present. But sources say that he is so close to VC chandra that nothing happend about his bad behaviour

The talk at the school of literature and language is how professor Sudesh Mishra showing undying loyalty to his buddies like Mark Edge and Ian Webber. He cover up their mistakes and make them look good as he is facsinated by white professors and go to ends of earth to protect them. Sudesh Mishra has uppity attitude toward local staff and junior staff which are benneth him and his white buddies. we want this arrogant prick to be out as HOS. In the end his buddies kick him in the arse and make a big mess at the school. Rajesh Chandra is spoiling his name by favourtism of this bullshit professor.

David Robie is a washed up old man who enjoys nothing more than taking photos of himself on his own Facebook page and giving himself photography credits for them. Needs to do AUT a service and step down.

Hahaha, 'rebuilding the program'. All you and your chums Marc Edge and Sudesh Mishra have done is run the program to the ground.
