Shami Chakrabarti -

As of about an hour ago it looks like the PNG elections are turning to shite.

Anything could now happen and none of it will be good.

A perfect excuse for O'Neill to declare a state of emergency.

Thanks Lindsay.

Unlike in previous elections, there weren't much supplies of lambflaps and alcohol in this election which is a positive sign, Robin. I hope the same trend will continue in the next election and eventually phased out.

Timely telling of tout. Hope is "wisdom and tact" energised ingeniously not disingenuously.
Nii's nice nine nick a nock, a neat mete on niffs.

mete on niffs: limit to odours

Well said, Francis.
