An early draft of Jenny Hayward-Jones' latest post on Fiji contained reference to a rumour floated on the Fiji blogosphere that interim Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama had been arrested by his own military. Since we could only find one blog reporting the rumour we decided to leave it off Jenny's post. But the Fiji blog Intelligentsiya reports that the story did reach Bainimarama, who responded:

Reading into blogsites is not doing anybody any good. It is a waste of time, people who read it have nothing else to do, nothing good. Whoever is reading blogsites would get stirred and they get depressed and that’s the whole purpose of them. My advice is, don’t read blogsites.

Warms the heart, really.
