Know whatever anyone says about you, your greatest name to fame is a procrastinator, an advocate an agent for the criminal aristocracyMalo aupito Siua for your reply. It has been difficult disagreeing with any of the things you have said as I agree with most of it. I agree and think there was a conflict of interest between the PM and Princess, i also think the renovation of the palace was not in the best interest of the nation and I think Ashika was a terrible tragedy that could have been avoided. And many other things that you have pointed out. You have also brought up a lot of issues of where people in power may be breaking the law, and I think that too needs changing or more thorough investigations.
Having all these things happening in our little island nation, the question I'd like to focus on, is less on the past and more on what should we do or what can we do about it. If we think the law was broken by people in administration or if we think the courts are biased, the course of action to take in front of us is to protest, peaceful protest to be exact.
With that I believe the riots were foolish and shameful that took Tonga back many years, considering how empty kolo was of buildings, it really did take us back many years.
What I'd like to stress is that treason is on an entirely different level, a dark road that fools would tread on especially considering that many non-violent ways of protest are not fully utilized. Yes actions by authorities in the past have probably led to increased instability, but the great crime of treason comes with way more instability. Plus, there is no democracy in treason. There is no vote for which we may see what the majority actually wants. Treason IS a crime against the state and it does increase instability, all of which is something I'm trying to make clear to boru77.
Nobles are part of Tongan society so they deserve seats in Parliament. Nobles are people just like you and me, so they can just as easily abuse power for personal gain as some people reps have done. I don't know if you can have a democracy without parliament so I don't think it is something we can ignore, maybe it requires people to pay closer attention to what their reps are up to.
Rome wasn't built in a day, so I reckon let's all relax, be patient, enjoy life, and know even for things like democracy, it takes time.
yes democracy takes time, what a load of BS
tell that to the children who are dying in the hospital today from preventable diseases and injuries who will not be medically evacuated to New Zealand because the King doesn't want a pay for it
have they got time to lose? So my little ignorant friend who accuses everybody of treachery treason and sedition
so look into the eyes of the little boy, the little 14-year-old boy that's got a broken back in hospital at the moment, where the surgery capacity of the hospital is not up to scratch, and he is slowly wasting away his life while his mother fans him with a hand-held coconut palm
go until that the kid and his family and that we have to wait until the nobles get paid in advance for their leases, because they can see the writing on the wall and they are ponying up the money so they can make a quick exit.
And the King gives the money to them with both hands
while the teenager in hospital is dying for the lack of $1000 ticket to New Zealand
I think you are so immature that you don't see the fact that this is real and what we can talk about has real consequences for people
when the riots happened in 06, eight people were burnt to death
I think you should contemplate all this for a while, even though your IQ goes up and down with the temperature of the room, maybe one day you may see the light
