    Editor,

    “Tongans need the Consulate in San Francisco” by ‘Ofa-ki-Tonga missed the point altogether. The issue here is whether Tonga can afford to run such a place. The answer to that is NO. Tonga has not got funds put together to even feed its people.

    Editor,

    The issue raised here by Vili Piutau is a valid point to put forward for debate in the House of Parliament. Or could someone explain please how Tonga can afford the running of offices and embassy type premises in London, San Francisco and other parts of the World.
