Top three WORST and BEST quotes:

Fiji Sun - - Parliament News -

The WORST: Mos­ese Buli­tavu:

The mar­ket­ing sup­port to Fiji Air­ways un­der Head 50 with di­rect flights to Sin­ga­pore as a con­nect­ing point to our trade mar­kets in Asia can be an op­por­tu­nity for ter­ror­ist groups and is a threat to our na­tional se­cu­rity.

Vil­iame Ga­voka:

Let us in­tro­duce a Qoliqoli Tax to re­place the en­vi­ron­men­tal tax that we charged to­day. In­stead of six per cent, make it eight per cent. On tourism alone, Madam Speaker, that was $1.5bil­lion last year, eight per cent would be $120mil­lion im­me­di­ately.

Semesa Kar­avaki:

I was not very happy to look at the Bud­get, es­pe­cially from the Min­istry for Works and also when I read in the pa­per and also saw in the TV that the Honourable Prime Min­is­ter open­ing the jetty in Gau. And, I thought to my­self, why not Lakeba?

The BEST: Voreqe Bain­i­marama:

Madam Speaker, some­times your op­po­nents will at­tack you by go­ing for the jugu­lar vein, then when it comes to this Bud­get, the Op­po­si­tion has shown an in­stinct for the cap­il­lary fo­rum.

Parveen Ku­mar:

I was very happy to con­sider Honourable Leader of the Op­po­si­tion’s re­quest about a par­tic­u­lar road to be done be­cause she was very po­lite.

Faiyaz Koya:

The Op­po­si­tion con­tin­ues to op­er­ate as a dem­a­gogue, try­ing to ap­peal to de­sires rather than us­ing ra­tio­nal ar­gu­ments. As an ex­am­ple the Op­po­si­tion has gone to the me­dia and made claims that the Honourable Min­is­ter for Econ­omy has nine Min­is­te­rial port­fo­lios which, Madam Speaker, is in­cor­rect.
