Fiji: A fragile ego

An example of how fragile the ego of Fiji's dictator is: having failed to win a TXT-poll for "personality of the year", Voreqe Bainimarama forced the offending media organisation to change the result and declare him the winner. And now, he's using his cronies in the Commerce Commission and Media Development Authority to punish them for giving offence.

I just hope no-one has been dragged to camp and tortured over this. But its an example of the sheer pettiness and narcissism of Fiji's dictator. What next? He'll be entering the Olympics, and threatening to beat people if they don't let him win?
