Guards on duty protecting the King’s Palace have reportedly shot down a drone that was hovering outside the King’s bedroom window. The drone, pictured below, was the same as those used by the Fijian Defence Force, prompting speculation that the Fijians may have been spying on the King in a bid to improve their negotiating position at the upcoming Free Trade Agreement talks.
“Civilised nations don’t do this to each other”, said a Government spokesperson, “We only spy on other….less civilised, I mean less…spied on…countries…whose interests are hostile to ours”.
When it was pointed out that the Llaman Defence Force had been caught listening in on Michelle Obama’s cellphone conversations last year, the spokeperson dismissed any connection: “That was a matter of national importance, we needed to know her recipe for Chicken Kiev, it was vital to the national interest”.
Talks on the Free Trade Agreement were cancelled by the Llaman Government later in the afternoon, after some of the photos taken by the drone were leaked to the press.
The Fijian Government has denied all knowledge. A spokeperson said: “Are you serious? That looks like something a child would get for Christmas rather than a piece of sophisticated military equipment. Where do you buy these? We could use them”.
