The Australian police contingent was spotted at the Airways Hotel, where they are staying, having breakfast.

Apparently they are mostly overweight. They should fit in really well.

It would seem that the wolf has finally shed his gamon sheep’s wool clothing to reveal his true identity.

The Australian police have been brought to PNG under a government led by O'Neill. So, are they supporting O'Neill? Are they allowing themselves to be "involved in politics"? Just a thought.

One of the Sepiks that I was "talking with" on the Sepik Region Development Discussion Forum on Facebook said it was OK for O'Neill to bring in Australian police as long as they didn't get involved with politics. Somebody should remind them!

The Sepiks are also worried about politicians being involved with the setting up of the ICAC.

I guess some of the politicians are also very worried about the setting up of an ICAC. It will be interesting to see if the ICAC Bill is a good one and if it is easily passed.

The Government of Papua New Guinea is doing an excellent job because of the Ministers and public servants who are highly qualified at doing whatever they want.

That statement is 'false and defamatory'.

So when Keith publishes this he'll find out about the "warning" and I'll be deported.

Just make sure you go by air and not by boat, Michael - KJ

Are we now moving to the next stage of Ali Baba and the 40 thieves?

Joseph Goebbels in the form of Rimbink Pato rearing his ugly head in history again.

And where is the international criminal Tjranda now. He is the original bag man of the Papinao group.

What say you, eh, eh, eh....

It works both ways. Mana Dau (Rose's mum) has had her visa application refused by Australian Immigration because she used a different surname to the one we used in our sponsorship application for her. (Aussies don't understand how PNG names work).

Should it be her father's surname, her mother's, her married one or her adopted one? Hell she didn't know any better. She can't even read English.

And of course she has lost the application fee - probably six month's income for her.

Birth certificates don't help - especially if you were born in the Highlands in 1946.

And apparently I don't have enough money in my account to prove we can pay for her expenses for a three-week tourist visit because she is unemployed.

She's in her seventies and this was to be the highlight of her life.

This is not political, it is just the sheer bastardry of DFAT, honed over many years.

I think I mentioned Kafka a while ago?
