The thing that p***es me off the most about the Charter is the sheer hypocrisy of it. Chodo's Charter (yes, I blame him for it!) positively reeks of double standards.
For instance take this classic misnomer of a sweeping statement:
In an earlier post by Fiji Girl, "Same s**t, different year", the late Sir Len Usher's letters were quoted where the great man himself points the finger at Chodo for exacerbating racial tensions for his own political gain.
Here's a another sasa-broom statement in the Charter
They are very simple.
We have a legitimate Constitution and Chodo's bastards are raping it, our rights and freedoms, and our children's future. If Chodo's bastards would stop fussing and hold an election, our problems today will vanish into thin are. Nothing complex about it, and its roots only go back to December 2006.
Now how about this one :
If Indians want to call their language 'Hindi', that is their problem. It doesn't mean we have to rename our language to 'Vosa Vakaviti'. My German friend is German. I don't call he Deutsch. A Frenchman is French, not francais. God help you if you call a Scot an Englishman to his face. Fijians are Fijians. Rotumans are Rotumans. IndoFijians are whatever they want to be called, as long as it ain't Fijian.
Here's another "utopian gem" :
** If Chodo's style of trade unionism is anything to go by , it is the complete antithesis of trust-based dialogue. Honesty and openness don't even enter into the picture. He is an anachronism, a pimple on the bum of the international trade union movement which thrives on good faith, not the pretence of good faith which is Chodo's modus operandi.
God bless Fiji.
