Lockington's Everyday Fiji ... Life Goes On

Allen 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. 

Check List
Just like a boat that carries passengers and  an aircraft that is checked each time it lands, road public service vehicles should also have rules and requirements to follow. 
.
If we would use safety checks similar to those used with boats and aircraft for all vehicles, and especially buses, we would bring down the possibility of buses burning or going out of control because of failed breaks or some other mechanical issue. Aircraft engineers have checklists for their aircraft.  Can we introduce this for buses with lists  submitted to the Land Transport Authority every month. All defects found  would be listed and a note made on how they were fixed. If  buses  are checked regularly like this we would avoid accidents like the bus that burst into flames last week.

We would be one step ahead and be more likely to know if a bus or other vehicle was about to have a problem.

Have you worked out yet that everybody ignores your total crap?
Signing up to a coup apologist blog is like the kiss of death. Or are you too thick (or rejected by others) to work that out?

Well, according to you everybody has ignored it but but you... if you had ignored Lockingn's posts you wouldn't have even opened Walsh's Blog.

Allen Lockington has guts and a certain style. He also has that important Fiji Factor: sustainability. Keep it up, Allen. We need to be told how the ordinary person lives and what daily life consists of, even the smallest detail of existence is worth the telling. One day, like 9/11 with all its contingent horror, we shall forget unless we are reminded. Woe betide the dwellers in Ivory Towers who insist otherwise! The Diarist is a noble calling from Samuel Pepys and the Great Fire of London on....
