We're all witnessing what tsunamis can do, but what are the lessons learned that are useful to Tonga? Before I relate my experiences below, I want you to know that Tonga is even more at the center of my thoughts and silent prayers this week. The tsunami devastation is haunting me. The number of people who have died in Aceh alone exceeds Tonga's population of 100,000! by Tupou Lindborg.

The letter of HRH Prince Tupouto'a on the subject of the high power costs, is informative and historical BUT purposely refrains from providing any sensible explanation. It did not address the issues, which have and are causing the public outcry over the costs of electricity nor did it attempt to alleviate the general concerns and plight of people who are so adversely affected. - Clive Edwards.

Generations from now, Tongans will repeat those sentiments, over and over again, as they commemorate 10 November 2004, as the date when HM King Taufaha'au Tupou IV, gave his people the ultimate gift - a role in the selection of some of his Cabinet Ministers, and thus acknowledging that they have an integral role to play in the democratic governance of the Kingdom of Tonga.

Those of us that reside away from the Kingdom but try and stay in touch with our family/friends there have been so grateful since the Crown Prince has started his company and lowered prices considerably for telephone calls. They are still higher than anyplace else an overseas Tongan would be expected to call, but hopefully new phones will mean new volume and even lower prices. Congratulations to Tonfon, it doesn't seem that would have happened with the old monopoly.

I have noted the public outcry over the recent increase in the price of electricity and thought you might consider the following. In my opinion, considering the substantial forces arraigned against the non-oil producing countries by major global financial forces, any claims by certain unethical political candidates to provide, at a stroke, a panacea for the burden of high power costs are false. -Tupouto'a
