Bainimarama Plays Chicken With Fiji Water
The tit for tat war of words via the media continues.
Bainimarama lay's down his law of the jungle and Fiji Water announces that they will give the illegal and treasonous Bainimarama posse two days.
Despite Bainimarama's statement over-confident assertions that "new investment inflows and interest is indicative of the affirmation of and confidence in Fiji and the Fijian economy by the private sector" the global media begins to remind the world otherwise, with a reality check.
But in this game of "chicken", its We The People who will have to live with, and pay for the consequences of Bainimarama's testosterone-induced decisions based on brawn rather than brain.
Killing the last vestiges of foreign exchange earners at this time is a no-brainer not the best of ideas. Primarily when the VAT hikes, it is whispered, were instituted to stave off another devaluation.
