Dear Ms Bishop - Thank you for your personal response and thank you for the opportunity to be heard.

I hope PNG politicians are also reading the suggestions put forward (if they haven't already yet). Some comments are speaking more to PNG leaders than Ms Bishop and the Australians.

We must make the first move to help ourselves first (as we did with Task Force Sweep) before inviting our friends to give us a helping hand.

After all, are we not a sovereign nation? Have we not shouted down Senator Carr with rhetoric such as "we are an independent nation" when he dared to challenge us?

Ms Bishop’s gesture is well taken. But PNG must make the first move to help herself.

I hope that Julie will revisit PNG Attitude from time to time to pick up some more useful points to guide her Australian government policies.

Wonderful! Thanks for the feedback Ms Bishop.

I'm glad she picked up on most of our points.

I look forward to seeing what comes out of her inquiries into Task Force Sweep - if anything at all. At the least, these ideas are now circulating around her head and are on paper.

Great suggestions PNG Attitude folks!
