Canberra's head in the sand over how Fijians feel

Jenny Hayward-Jones writes in The Australian Magazine about the Lowy Institute's poll of the Fijian people on their opinions of the Bainimarama regime. Hayward-Jones argues that the results of the poll, which found that 66 per cent of Fijians thought that Bainimarama was doing a good job, are valid. Hayward-Jones cited the low rate of refusal to participate, and polls of of other respected organisations such as the Pew Research Center in repressive regimes.
