Liam Fox from the ABC has visited Suva to do a report for ABC TV in Australia. He’s given the Suva CBD a big tick of approval for being safe and clean, but he’s asked questions about how free our media are to report the news. A taxi-driver who was taking him around launched into a tirade full of ‘expletives’ about the Bainimarama Government. Liam thought it would make great TV and asked if he could switch on his cameras and the let him share it with the world. But, no, that wasn’t going to be possible. Fox said that supporters are only too happy to go to air saying what they think of the regime but opponents are afraid. Liam Fox also reported that he was told that after SODELPA meetings the police and military would turn up to ask who was at the meeting.
