With respect to Mr Ivan Simic's freedom of speech rights, his last two letters of 12/01/08 and 12/08/08 to the Matangi Tonga were, in my opinion, very sad and unfortunate. I felt that they had some reflections of anger and hatred, especially towards the United States of America. Although I was reluctant and forced to be impressed by the details and statistics of his letters, I frankly gained little but mostly pains and regrets from them. As I was pondering over his letters, I also was wondering if he really knows that the United States of America did some good deeds to his country and people. -Siosaia Fatani.

New Zealand's next Parliament will be the most ethnically diverse in its history - with MPs from communities which have never had representation in Parliament, including a television journalist from Korea and a former Fiji citizen. By Lincoln Tan

A golden opportunity seems to be intentionally flushed down the drain. As our Parliament closed for the year, it is sickening to read about the charges and counter charges by both sides of the aisle. Of all the issues that are crucial to the kingdom, personal vendetta seems more important than setting the foundation for the Year 2010 political change. If there is corruption in Parliament, it is the corruption of broken promises during the election campaign; the corruption of leading the public to believe they have a plan regarding transition to democracy, yet they have none; the corruption of giving themselves a huge pay increase without blinking an eye and still call it pitiful compensation. - Tama Foa

Nuku'alofa, Tonga
Following the current discussions in the Tongan parliament about the exact role and the composition of Tonga's Commission for Political Reform, it is now glaringly obvious that parliament does not have a clear vision of the new system of government that they intend to impose on us. Editor's Comment by Pesi Fonua.

The legality of the four ministers, appointed by the King after the 2005 election, remaining in office, has been raised by the People's Representatives again. Langafonua Tu'uloa Party have added to the discussion, but it seems that both have missed the point. Maybe this would help. - ‘Inoke Fotu Hu‘akau

Only 38% (less than half) of the registered voters of Tongatapu cast votes in this past election. The country is going to be guided by the minority, a democracy by the few and for the fewer. - Mafi ‘o Amerika Samoa

Joe is quite right that the Tonga police and military are not big enough to deal with an insurgency because Tonga did not need a big police force or military as Tonga was the proud Friendly Islands until the 16/11. You misfits must be proud of what you did to Nuku'alofa and the business people who are the backbone of our economy. ...Tonga needs a new version of democracy- Taasi Holiday

It is time for the people of Tonga to retire all of the People's Representatives. Nothing they have done in Parliament even for the past 20 years would make up for the damages they have instigated to the image of Tonga. The hate campaign conducted by the leading members of the Pro-Democracy movement on the ethnic business community has come to fruition and has made Tonga, and worse its people, as a racist country in the eyes of the international community. The multiplier effect of such destruction on the economy and the people of Tonga as a whole will be immense. - Inoke Fotu Huakau

However, if you read my comments carefully, I do not hate America. "I love America with all my good heart." I am doing business and come to Amercia every other month, and so as China. (I am responding to you now from China). I love Tonga, and I love China too! Siosaia Moehau
