‘Tit for tat’ exchanges good to see

Thursday August 02, 2018 Published in Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor,

Good to see that the CINews smoke signals are back to a “tit for tat” situation.

 

I spotted a couple in your July 31 edition – just when I was beginning to think that my “tit” to them no longer earned a “tat” from them - and we can’t have that, can we?

I noted that one of them is asking you not to publish my letters anymore, which I find odd because he was reading them wasn’t he?

What I don’t understand is why these critics don’t put their names to what they write.

Are they ashamed of their names? Or might it be that the latest chatter on the coconut wireless is true, that they are none other than the heavyweight immigrants and advisors to government who are angry that I blindsided them by flicking Vaimaanga off the table as feeder to the Pa Enua Paradise Prosperity Plan (PPP) signature resorts, thus spoiling their plan to stop the PPP development by delaying the confirmation of tender for Vaimaanga until the new government is formed.

The question that arises is, are these ghosts using government or is government complicit in trying to stop a commercial sector development by the Pa Enua people to save themselves, by delaying confirmation of tender until government is formed?

I’m asking this because the tender document I saw stated several times that it was the landowner’s decision on whose tender would be successful, which begs the question of why wait for government to be formed. By the way, I know what’s going on because a friend told me they had asked him to buy Vaimaanga to save face, and told me he didn’t want it after I informed him he could pick it up for a song now that MOP has taken it off the table.

The good news is my friend really does want it, because when he told me he didn’t want it, he was really gloating about getting it. 

The bad news is he will sing for it and he sings out of tune. Welcometo the real world of the developer you unholy ghosts! This letter is intended to provoke “tit” for “tat, tat, tat”!
