Rugby World Cup Dictatorship
Fiji dictator's World Cup freebie
NEW ZEALAND faces the embarrassing prospect of being forced to host Fiji military coup leader Frank Bainimarama as a VIP during the Rugby World Cup, even though he is blacklisted from entering this country.
And it's possible Bainimarama's convicted killer brother-in-law, Francis Kean, could also attend the tournament if he is successful in staging his own coup and takes over as chairman of the Fiji Rugby Union.
Both men would be hosted at the taxpayer's expense, and their VIP treatment is expected to cost around $45,000. Under International Rugby Board rules, the host nation pays for two officials from each participating nation to attend.
I'm sorry, what? So aside from all the corporate manufactured hoopla for sponsors of the Rugby World Cup and the Nation's psyche taking a depressive death spiral if we choke with the oppressive spike in domestic violence that accompanies, beyond all that - we have to bloody well host a dictator and his killer brother-in-law?
Tell me this is some sick joke?
The head of Slytherin House, Murray McCully, gave himself vast powers over the Rugby World Cup, yet he can't stop a dictator and convicted killer rolling into town for a piss up?
