Hi Lindsay - You got the idea. I hope no one in PNG votes for any leader based on favour of money.

Naith, so well states: "leadership was usually vested in a person based on trust, respect and community standing."

Yet when a vehicle overturn and spills cargo, what happens in most places in PNG, is that the cargo gets looted by people. Those people may be mostly honest and trustworthy, but when cargo can be 'a steal', local rules evaporate. Then what sense of guilt?

Would there be "guilt among MPs for the neglect of people" when the cargo of PNG money is spilling? Most MPs made an agreement known as Alotau Accord, and if that 'spill' is not followed by due and lawful acquittal, don't ask what the vehicle was 'holden' or if any 'a ford' or was 'toyed over'. No joke, that 'deliverance vehicle' trust becomes rust.

In PNG, much mention is made of that grander word 'leadership'.
Maybe, if MPs measure short, use the grinder word 'leaderslip'.
