What an incredible bunch of losers. I assume that the main qualification for being appointed was to be a Somare yes man. and isn't Peter Oneil a hoot? Once the weak and ineffective opposition leader, he's finally smelled where the money is and has abandoned all of his supposed principles (not that they ever existed).
Philemon Embel will probably get drunk again and wave his gun like in the old days.
Temu wiggled out of his last leadership tribunal trial. Wonder if he'll escape again?
Michael Ogio-another known corrupt and mighty big bribe demander when he was Minister of Forestry.
And then there's Patrick Pruatch. Geeeeeeeez.
