STOP PRESS: No discrimination against Fiji Times says Khaiyum, in his role as Civil Aviation Minister; he says Fiji Airways is a limited liability company so they decide what complimentary paper should be on board

That's what Khaiyum, as Civil Aviation Minister and the Minister of Everything Else in post Bainimarama coup Fiji, says. Question is who believes him. My own view is that Khaiyum is lying. He is insulting the intelligence of the Fijian people. We all know why Khaiyum likes to give preference to the Fiji Sun. It's because the Fiji Sun bent down low to propagandise for the Bainimarama-Khaiyum regime since the unlawful takeover. The Fiji Sun is being rewarded for serving the Bainimarama- Khaiyum dictatorship.

Two newspapers on one airline in a banana republic like Fiji is too much. The flight might not be able to take off with the additional weight. I am surprised Khaiyum didn't advance that "logic".

Perhaps Thakur Ranjit Singh can throw some light on this issue seeing as he regards himself as an authority on which media in Fiji does balanced reporting and which does not.

Kaiyum is a serial liar and an arrogant dictator. He has been hoodwinking the gullible supporters with false promises. Its a deep shame that people continue to support him despite repeated revelations of racism, nepotism and destructive behavior. He has silently managed to do more harm than any of the coup makers. When his d-day comes, he is in for a long suffering.

The three men raising their glass in the bottom picture look like real pompous colonial twits. How the natives imitate the departed colonialists nearly 5 decades after their departure!

Now why would any international airline of repute choose to load a complimentary newspaper as sole source of Current Affairs which contains this: a report (now published on more than one occasion) by reporter Jessica Savike in which we were informed that the "First victim was abducted between January 1 1998 and February 31 2001". "For same victim he is charged with two counts of rape". This is nonsense, unspecific reporting and sub-editing. It is supposed to relate to the Trial of Josua Colanaudolu on multiple charges of abduction, rapes and murder. Four victims are alleged and some have given evidence (we learn from more reliable sources like the Fiji Times). This coverage is CRASS and verges upon C......P. Would any reputable airline or its directors (small 'd') sink so low or be a party to this? Past Chairmen Thomson and Barrack must be turning in their respective graves. Shape Up or Ship Out! And load the Fiji Times, The Economist Weekly, The NZ Herald and The Australian etc and encourage choice and critical thinking as you say you do. Failing this - your credibility is out the proverbial window!
