Jetty jam

Fiji Sun - - Election Countdown 2018 - By Maraia Vula Feed­back: maraia.vula@fi­

Seems our big two in­ter-is­land ferry oper­a­tors are still hav­ing prob­lems with co-or­di­nat­ing move­ments. Word from out in Koro is of an­other wait­ing game on Satur­day night in­volv­ing ves­sels from Pat­ter­son Broth­ers and Goundar Ship­ping. That’s in one hav­ing to wait - some time, it is said - to use the Koro jetty to un­load ve­hi­cles and peo­ple. A ri­val’s ves­sel was parked at the jetty.

All this in the mid­dle of the night.

Data story

Is it true? Story do­ing the rounds is that a failed Op­po­si­tion gen­eral elec­tion can­di­date’s name is on the so-called Data Bureau list.

Messy times

Good to see grass along­side the Queens Road be­ing cut as part of a cleanup. Bad to see so much rub­bish thrown from pass­ing ve­hi­cles be­ing un­cov­ered by the grass cut­ting. Friend of CW says we should fol­low the Sin­ga­pore model.

Vig­or­ous en­force­ment of anti-lit­ter laws and penal­ties. And sham­ing of of­fend­ers. Lit­ter­ing does not hap­pen any more in Sin­ga­pore.

Just shoosh

A ju­nior lawyer started mak­ing “smart” re­marks about our pa­per’s cov­er­age. It dawned on him that we are near­ing elec­tions so he wants to make his views known. Memo to ju­nior lawyer: No prob­lem with peo­ple ex­press­ing their views. But do it in a more sober way rather than lash­ing out in a pub­lic place. Not good for your im­age.
