Stoneb Stone comments: Funny thing is that when I see the word ‘nationalism’ I remember George Speight, a ‘nationalist’ and the main instigator of the Fiji coup in 2000.

Laluna Kahuna comments: The whole education system in Tonga needs an overhaul. Starting with the hot shots in Ministry of Education, school Principals, teachers etc. Start by sacking all those teachers who do not turn up for school to teach or for lack of teaching, those who physically, mentally and emotionally abuse the students, eating students lunches, having favourites - just to mention a few of the issues wrong with the education here. Tonga’s education is still 30-40 years behind the rest of the world.
