Jobs in Fiji
Here's today's cartoon from the Fiji Times. Background story- civil servants over 55 were told that it's time to leave their jobs, retire and go and plant their food gardens or whatever. Then the court gives a reprieve - for the moment. But police over 55 are still told to go on leave, and there's talk that it's all very selective really. Hey, what about the highest civil servant in the land - the President, he is over 55 isn't he? Plus 30 years over! The other backstory is that the Methodist community were asked to watch and pray for a month and kava drinking was banned for that period so some would decide that this would be a good thing.
