    : I am not so sure I will be an early convert to the Chinese philosophy Mr. Moehau is enjoying. He may be enjoying the Chinese roses but forgot to recognize the deadly thorns. The fact that China has a growing economy should not blind us and join the bandwagon. China is still a communist country. It has a one party rule policy. China does not tolerate dissension or opposing views to its national policy. - Tama Foa

    : Of course, modern Tongans no longer hold that misconception (that palangis are selfish with their money), 200 years later. But I'm getting an ugly gut-feeling that Mr. Joe Smith still thinks that most Tongans "“are lazy and leach off one another".” -Sione A. Mokofisi

    : Tension is mounting in the Tongan Parliament this week over the direction of the Political Reform that has been set in motion since the end of 2004. The drama is also a decoy by the politicians to distract public attention from the massive salary increase - backdated for two years - the Members have just taken for themselves.
