Fiji Pensioner:
Why are you insisting on reducing our pensions by 64% ?

 FNPF: Muppet Management
We cannot pay you your full pensions anymore because we have wasted your funds on bad investments made by Muppet Management (water under the bridge), yes the Fiji government has loans of 2 billion dollars, but don’t ask when they can repay it or the interest, its none of your business. Anyway you have lived too long and taken more than we think you should. Plus you are a burden on society now and should be put out to pasture.

Fiji Pensioner:
But it is our money, which is money that has been paid into the Fund by members from pay deductions and their employers. We pensioners all signed individual contracts for an agreed sum for the remainder of our lives. Some of us receive more than others, but these people had higher incomes, paid much higher taxes during their careers helping to maintain government services and other services to the communities- for example your scholarship to study; helping build roads and services and so on. These documents we signed at the point of retirement must mean something!

FNPF: Muppet Management
Your contracts mean NOTHING, the Government appointed the Board members and supports us Muppets, and it can make  laws or do reviews to change the law as we propose to do. None of us care about what you did for our country or how much you paid in the past, you have lived far too long. Why don’t you read the expensive advertisements we keep putting in the daily newspapers on our version of why we cannot afford to pay your pensions.

Fiji Pensioner:
We have read your advertisements and concluded they are a waste of OUR money, they do not propose any rectification measures to your incompetent management, and they only give reasons to support cutting pension payments.

Why are we never consulted, why have we never seen the results of an audit, or the reports into the operations of the FNPF?. Why do we the members not have a say in the appointment of people who control OUR investment? We should have some rights.

FNPF: Muppet Management
We don’t need to ask your opinion, or answer your questions, we have the support of the Government; the Government loves us, because we keep giving them your money. Why don’t you stop asking difficult questions? Just bugger off and die, we have might on our side, and who gives a damn about rights? What rights? Old people don’t have rights- get real!

Is this really the end of a very sad story? It is up to you.
