McCully Arrives Today....

...and it sounds like a perfect opportunity to make some noise citizens!
NZ and Fiji Foreign Ministers to meet this weekend
Friday, February 19, 2010

NZ Foreign Affairs Minister Murray McCully is expected into the country today to hold talks with his Fijian counterpart Inoke Kubuabola.

McCully and Kubuabola have been engaged in talks over the last month to try to re-establish good diplomatic relations between the two countries.

NZ has imposed travel sanctions on members of the Fiji government, while Fiji has expelled a number of New Zealand’s most senior diplomatic officers in the country.

However, both countries have committed to addressing their differences and find a way forward.

FBC News has been told that McCully will be arriving in the country today, and is expected to hold talks over the weekend with Mr. Kubuabola, but no other details could be established regarding the proposed meeting.

I think maybe Frank and the Bandmaster initially thought they were amongst friends: The Duffer McCully - whose foreign policy is so foreign it alludes most sensible people, and EVEN himself most times!.
Usually his response to anything and everything (like assistance to Haiti, or any other situation where most cicilised nations respond out of their own initiative) is "We haven't been asked".
Still... Frank and the Bandmaster should realise that he is just a little bit more clever than they are - even if he does come across as a pathetic piece of muff.
His only qualification to the portfolio is longevity.
