Quotes

According to the Daily Mail, he called it: "An exclusive tour at Buckingham Palace with Princess Kate Middleton and Queen Elizabeth II immortalised in their royal iconic style by artist aleXsandro Palombo."
"Nobody has approached us (from Solomon Airlines) but as I have said, nobody would approach us because it's a matter between governments."
In the meantime he would do well to reflect on the words of this newspaper's editorial - "Perhaps it's time Mr Talasasa reconsiders his involvement in sports and directs focus on his job."
"Today humans are acting as road blocks to stop vehicles from going past White River, and those from the west end outskirts of Honiara entering the city. The police force have been unable to clear the roadblock as rocks have been thrown at them. If rock throwing continues the police may be forced to use teargas to disperse the crowd."
