All very interesting, but where is the $$457 million from the Australian taxpayers' pockets? This amount is just for one year!

The mind really does boggle at what seems a complete waste for the PNG people and their welfare and improvement for such basics as education and health, or is this money to pay for the bureaucrats of AusAID or the finger dipping members of the Somare government?

I think this from Paul sums it up - "there appears to be no coordination between AusAID funding and the PNG government's method of managing and expending the PNG Budget."

What is needed is a head-kicking High Commissioner from Australia who will not tolerate these apparent abuses. I can think of some very suitable candidates from each side of the political spectrum in Australia, but modesty prevails!

Keep it up, Paul.
