Cannings persists as Australia dives into PNG's domestic affairs

How those top level talks between Abbott & O’Neill really went

Tones shows Pete where to buy budgy smugglersPrime ministers Tony Abbott and Peter O’Neill met for a confidential discussion in Port Moresby on Friday. GARY JUFFA used his considerable mystical powers to attend the meeting as a fly on the wall….

Tones -Hi, how’s it going with Manus?

Pete – Well, fine, until this effort by pesky judges!

T - Hmmm, maybe more money will help?

P -Yes!!!

T - But tell me, is Cannings going to be a problem?

P - To be honest, he’s the least of my worries. I’ve other distractions. Like the economy.

T - Can you also start resettling those asylum seekers?

P - That may be a problem.

T - But we have loads of money!

P - Hmm, interesting!!!

T - By the way, I’ve been meaning to ask, are West Papuans Melanesians?

P - Well, they’re Indonesians.

T - I thought so too.

P - We agree there.

T - What’s going on with Fiji?

P - Well they are doing fine, elections soon.

T - You think Frank might get back in?

P - People there love him.

T - Whatever!

T - By the way, what’s with the Borneo Pacific scam?

P - Well, um, they are compliant now, you know, after we removed ISO 9001.

T - Well what about Unitech?

P - Oh the inquiry did not produce the report we wanted.

T - Do the students have a point?

P - That’s irrelevant.

P - How about the dredging of the Great Barrier Reef?

T - Oh right. Well, we’re a sovereign country and do what we have to, you know!

T - Those young leaders, tell me things I could to be interested in.

P - Manus, West Papua, debt, unfair trade….

T - Boring!

P - Just kidding!

T - Saying one thing and doing another isn't so hard after all!

P - Tell me about it…

T - How about PACER?

P - Well, we are divided on that.

T - But you should accept all our exports!

P - How about ours?

T - Well, it doesn't work that way!

T - Anyway, thanks for using an Aussie bank mate.

P - Of course, we are forging true regional partnerships whenever we can.

T - So more Aussie mines soon?

T - Tell me, can I put on the budgies and go for a jog at Ela Beach and swim to Fisherman Island in the morning?

P - Tony, I don't think that’s a good idea.

Classic! Priceless satire.

Michael Dom

Gary, I really enjoyed this. Thank you.

I notice the ties clash between our two PM's - what is Peter wearing and how about Tony's baby-blue?

Also, I don't know how anyone can sit in a room with a picture of themselves hanging right behind them. I'd be creeped-out. Or maybe I've watched too many horror movies with mirrors in them?

Interesting post by Sonja Barry Ramoi of Sam Basil's questions to the PM - have you seen those KJ?

I did see them, Michael. I think those questions are in very good hands with Sam - KJ

Adelaide Dupont

Well, Tim Flannery says that West Papuans are Melanesians.

(This is the book which was dedicated to the miners, which I read on Saturday).

West Papuans are Melanesian, Gary Juffa was being playful - KJ
