Herald Editorial Spot On

Today’s Editorial in the NZ Herald makes points similar to those I made yesterday over the stupidity of what Fiji is reportedly threatening

One of the first messages sent to John Key after National’s election came from Fiji’s military usurper, Commodore Frank Bainimarama. In it the commodore reportedly referred to Helen Clark with sentiments less than diplomatic. Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd is said to have received a similar greeting a year ago when he defeated John Howard. Clearly Fiji’s self-appointed ruler is aware of the possibilities presented by a change of Government.

But he has a strange idea of how to take an opportunity. Any prospect that New Zealand’s new Government might make an early move to review the sanctions imposed on Fiji’s regime has probably disappeared with the threat to expel this country’s Acting High Commissioner in Suva over a visa denial.
