It is quite surprising and very interesting to find an overseas PR firm from Fiji sending out media release on the view of King George Tupou V of Tonga, and his strong belief that Tonga's Constitution is the Keystone of the Kingdom's peace and stability, bearing the Lord Chamberlain's insignia. In the U.S. we call this the Royal Spin, in trying to counter all the bad and negative press since his father died. - M. T. Tuaileva

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
