Five significant Tongan patrimonial artifacts are expected to fetch around 19,000 Euros ($50,000 pa'anga) when they are auctioned in Brussels, on Friday January 24, for an unnamed private owner. While critics of the sale say the objects are an invaluable part of Tonga's cultural heritage and should not leave the kingdom to be sold in Europe.

Virtually all public figures in Tonga, including politicians of any colour, failed dismally to assist or set forward a firm plan of how to achieve better standard of living for Tongans. It was mainly the late King who had a vision to that effect, starting from the Tonga Commodities Board in the late 1950s. The last was the Passport Scheme, a fund raising excercise for the purpose of investing the proceeds. - S. Ma'afu Tupou.

My personal opinion is that in 1952 Prince Tupouto'a-Tungï (then Premier of Tonga) arranged for the purchase of the property by the Government of Tonga and that Queen Sālote agreed to the purchase because of her growing family – and the likelihood of grandchildren later being educated in Auckland, as she had been – and because of the promised hostels for Tongan students, in whose welfare she took a great interest. - Besi Wood-Ellem.

Thank you for keeping us in the picture over the last few weeks. We continue to be in awe of what is possible today and your efforts at keeping us informed has helped to shape the thinking behind this short note. That we are revelling in the wonders of a world we never thought we would see in our lifetime was brought home to me even more when I was able to watch the three-hour formal burial ceremony of the late king at Mala'ekula from the comfort of an air-conditioned Auckland office , while thinking back to 1965 when I too, was at the same place and at a similar ceremony. - Sefita A Hao'uli

The West and its Western media need to be educated on some aspects of Tongan culture so they can be enlightened regarding our rituals and the relationship of Tongans with their beloved King. It is rude and highly inappropriate that during our time of mourning, offensive articles and news by some Western newspapers, radio personalities and television are mocking the late King and His Majesty Tupou V. - Loketi Niua Latu

I was first appalled and outraged by the very insensitive and disrespectful remarks by Mr. Laws concerning our beloved Monarch His Late Majesty King Taufa'ahau Tupou IV. However, I now find it rather amusing how Mr. Laws has exposed his ignorance and bigotry for all to see.

His Majesty's contributions to our Tonga made Him a beacon of hope and placed him in an inimitable and incomparable position. The significance of His Majesty's contributions in pertain to the introduction and infusion of Tonga into modern 20th Century commerce and economics must we heeded, recognized, praised, remembered and never taken for granted. At a very critical time for Tonga to either emerge or be submerged, His Majesty's vision was the right prescription at the right time for a country still yet merged in feudal and common thinking. - Sione Fonua
