Shazzer & Grubby report that Bainimarama is busy setting up his party and that he is selecting candidates, recruiting members, getting signatures and making campaign speeches. A lot of this work, says Shazzer & Grubby, is being funded by the tax payer, which is illegal according to Bainimarama’s own illegal POLITICAL PARTIES DECREE.
Shazzer & Grubby highlight Section 22 Subsection 11, of the illegal Decree as follows:
(11) For the purposes of this section, “political donation” includes donations of money, and provision of goods and services at no charge or at a discounted charge.
1- He is using soldiers to get signatures and recruiting members.
2- He is using members of the PSC to organize voter bribes.
3- He is using Ministry budgets to pay for Voter bribes.
4- He is using government Ministers to write his speeches.
5- He is using the Ministry of Information resources
6- He is using Qorvis as his communication advisers. They are paid by the Government and not by his party. (Qorvis is an American PR firm that is paid over $1 million a year by the Fijian Tax Payer. They are one of the biggest political PR firms in America.)

Shazzer and Grubby say that there is GOOD NEWS in all this - it is ILLEGAL! Therefore, Bainimarama faces a $10,000 fine and up to 5 years in Prison, which would stop him from standing for election. BUT, the BAD NEWS, says Shazzer & Grubby, is that he will never be found GUILTY in one of Kraiyum Pays’ Courts.
