This afternoon, Sunday 12/1½006, I took my family to a rugby match between Tonga and England. This was a big game the Federation Shield final. The game was played at Halton Stadium, Cheshire which is my local rugby stadium. I was so excited and proud the Tonga Rugby team is here in my own backyard playing one of the best rugby league teams in the world. - Senolita Swan

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.

I got of the "Taulau Bus" only to find myself walking alone. So, Sione Mokofisi and the others, as much as you may not want to, the Tau Lau Bus will be kept in service because it is the most comfortable mode that excites our writers. In this Bus, you are not going to be responsible for anything and you are not required to do any work but throw trash into the fire to encourage the tau lau. - Sione Lousiale Kava

When the Tongan Legislature reconvened on Monday, November 6, after being in recess since October 23, members were told that they had only eight working days left this year. Faced with a overwhelming workload they immediately spent half a day getting heated up over the agenda and the impact of their 60% salary rise on their reputations, and then they had to close the House for another half day while they all cooled down. From the House, by Pesi Fonua.

Most foreign and local scholars warned of a possible tsunami in our small island nation, Tonga, due to multiple earthquakes we are randomly experiencing. But what these scholars do not seem to understand that around the island of 'Eua, there is something hidden, we call 'Tonga Deep', with an approximate depth of more than 5 miles down the ocean. Meaning no matter how big an earthquake in Tonga, and if there is a tsunami coming, Tonga Deep diffuses the tsunami and weaken this monster before it even come to surface. - Siosaia Moehau
