After reading about the plight of the MOW employees in Ha'apai, I confirmed something I have suspected for a very long time. My psychiatrist is right. I am an idiot and I do have multiple personalities. I can be angry, empathize and laugh within a minute's time. I am pretty sure I am serious about this statement. - Tama Foa

His Majesty, the father of our nation, who is abroad while our household is on fire and we the people are in it, speaks volumes than his past history. To abandon your responsibility towards a nation who is currently suffering, indicates lack of conscience or moral emotion towards his subjects. -William Mariner

I can't sit around and ignore what I believe is unfairness toward our beloved king. The king is nothing else but a socio-cultural and political father to the nation. It surely is not fun for him to maintain the highest degree of respectability, be a model and a leader and try to make everyone of his subjects happy.-Sailosi Finau

Any hope for a quick solution to the continuing national strike by Tonga's Civil Servants remains wishful thinking as we enter the fifth week of the strike, with both sides negotiating at a two steps forward and four steps backward speed. By Pesi Fonua

On August 1, before the House decided to go into recess due to the ongoing civil service strike, the Prime Minister, Prince 'Ulukalala Lavaka Ata, expressed his dismay with what Clive Edwards had been saying on television, calling on the strikers to do something about public servants who were not on strike but were still working for government. He thought it was unusual for a former Minister of Police to say things like that. He said that what Clive was doing was inciting people to riot.
