That's a pretty dopey comment from Murray McCully. Everything east of the Birds Head in West Papua is either Melanesian or Polynesian, two distinctly Pacific Island cultures.

Also, the Indonesians might like the idea of PNG being considered part of Asia because it would stengthen their case for the Asianisation of West Papua.

Like most conservatives, Mr McCully is thinking with his shopkeeper brain.
