Lockington's Everyday Fiji ... Life Goes On

Allen TanoaAllen Lockington is a self-employed customs agent and business consultant who has regular articles published in Fiji. I thank Allen for permission to reprint some of them in this political blog. They remind us that life goes on, whatever the political situation. And it's good to know that.

Manhole Covers
Here is a suggestion for the city and town councils regarding the missing manhole covers. For the covers that have been removed, replace them and weld the cover shut. When you need to use the access the passageway all you do is to get a blow torch and cut the welding away. 
For the grating that have been removed, fill the chamber up with cement so that there is just a slip big enough for water to flow through, that way you don’t have to keep replacing the  metal and its will be cheaper to cut away the welding. 
And lastly, all metal is exported, I had suggested in a previous letter for all metal to be inspected by the authorities before being stuffed into a container. And just like the penalty for tampering with water meters, the fine for metal theft should be $2 million. And 20 years in prison.

$2m fine or 20 years in prison? Good idea! How about if the prison be a deserted island - without any shelter, fresh water or food. Have the culprit fend for themselves!!
