There’s still a few days to go but we don’t think anyone is going to beat these two for the worst forced smiles of 2013. Aisake Taito obviously has nothing to smile about. FNPF has enough trouble making a profit but pouring funds into the black-hole of Abdul Khan’s FSC threatens to lose a big pile of funds with no hope of recovery. FSC shares are worthless. It was removed from the South Pacific Stock Exchange when its debts grew to be higher than its assets. Now it’s living off funds borrowed from FNPF because no bank would touch it. EXIM Bank of India is going to bankroll some more of its useless contractors who can be expected to do nothing more than unload some junk equipment and slip a few kickbacks to Abdul Khan or Bainimarama. Abdul Khan’s smile looks slightly more genuine than Aisake’s but then so it should, because it will be worth his while until he’s forced to flee the country.
