Fiji, Canterbury, and deferred elections

Announced in July 2010,

.

Full story

So let’s see if this blogger has sussed this correctly…

Postponing an election in Fiji is a bad thing, with Dear Leader demanding that the Fijians tow the line,

Nothing I’ve seen would mean that Mr Bainimarama would have any reason other than to hold elections in 2014 if he’s a man of his word.”

“Man of his word”! Good! Well said, Dear Leader, well said. Coup  leaders who over-turn democratically-elected institutions need to be held to account.

Uh oh…

Announced today (7 September),

???

But… but…  Prime Minister John Key said that pledges to hold an election should be honoured!?

What’s going on here?

Surely, Dear Leader is not having one standard for our Fijian cuzzies, and one for himself? That would be… hypocritical.

Let me say one last thing – Nothing I’ve seen would mean that Mr Key would have any reason other than to hold elections in 2013 if he’s a man of his word.

    nothing on the tv news! dont spook the horses, nothing to see here, like murry mcullys budget notes.

    i do get the impression that these guys are losing the plot, stephen joyce on the radio in the morning when told what he was going to do about the spring mine workers “they can work at the chch rebuild”, what kind of answer is that! then the west coast mayor reports that they gonna be working on monday rebuilding chch & stephen joyce is back on the radio “no no no, i didnt actually mean that, was just a suggestion, i have no idea what solid energy are going to do”. maybe stephen joyce will release another bunch of bullet statements, ‘bullet statements instead of jobs!’.
