A deal is a deal I suppose, but why wait for Julie Bishop?

Shouldn't the PNG government be doing something about this?

The Post Courier today mentions lots of projects going ahead in Manus re another asylum centre. But Australia promised that it would renovate Angau hospital as part of the deal.

No sign of anything going on at Angau. At this moment at Angau they have no quinine! They are using another drug on little children suffering from malaria which puts them in fit. Things are very grim at Angau hospital.

Can somebody press Miss Bishops's PANIC button. Australia needs to do something to help Angau right at this moment! These poor sick babies are having a terrible time.

"$448 million promised to Papua New Guinea has been retained. Nauru’s funding has also stayed the same." How much of this will be siphoned off for the operation of Australia's asylum seeker prisons on Manus and Naru rather than on development programs?
