It appears as far as Fiji is concerned nothing has changed in 173 years. One wonders what Charles Dickens would write about the government decrees put in place to restrict Fiji Pensioners from taking legal action against the FNPF to recover monies legally due to them.
What would he write about Greg Bullard ?, and he could write volumes on the evidence put forward by William Marshal Q.C. in his petition to the Fiji Prime Minister and his Military Council which was disregarded, or possibly never read by them.

There are vast opportunities for writers the like of Charles Dickens and William Shakespeare at the present time in Fiji, where the law still seems to be an Ass.
