Bainimarama Angles to Coup the Forum Secretariat

This is what happens when a treasonous, illegal individual resides in the neighborhood that is the Pacific. He will always want to bring the whole neighborhood down with him.

When he knows he can't win with Aust and NZ around to keep him honest, he aims to coup the Pacific Islands Forum and create another one.

You can listen to him making a total jack-ass of himself (as usual) here.

Fiji PM says Pacific grouping to strengthen
Updated 1 hour 26 minutes ago

Fiji's interim Prime Minister says he is being encouraged by some Pacific Island Forum nations to include them in next year's Melanasian Spearhead Group meeting. It is Fiji's turn to chair the MSG next year, and it is considering giving observer status to some island nations outside the group to enable them to attend the meeting.

Traditionally MSG membership is restricted to Fiji, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea. But since Fiji's suspension from the Pacific Islands Forum and the Commonwealth, Fiji is barred from meetings such as PACER Plus.

Interim Prime Minister Commodore Frank Bainimarama says Fiji's needs a forum to discuss issues of common interest to the whole region.

Looks like the only thing he has to offer in the region, is the same as what he has to offer at home - just the threat of bad behavior and harm if he doesn't get his way.

And probably the Forum and the MSG will react to it the same way we do.

In any event, I'm not sure the MSG would want to pursue this much further as it would simply defeat the purpose of having a specifically Melanesian grouping in the first place.
