Somare is the worst criminal PM PNG has ever had. In broad daylight....he can steal, he can rob, he can 'kill', he can do just about anything. He controls teh Police, he controls teh Defence, he controls the Enquiries that have been set up to investigate him, he controls the Justice system - he controls everything. If you like, you can call him a dictator. It makes no difference anyway. Nobody says anything to the Grand(Gang) Leader or you will regret teh consequence. He is running a mafia gang in parliament and outside parliament. Anybody who goes against him is either removed from Government, loses his/her job or gets a phone threat. So be quiet............Sssssssssssh!
Moti is an excuse for Grand Fool to get closer to China
April 26 2007, 4:42 PM
China right now is rushing to lock up resources for their economic development. They don't care if it's a dictator or whoever all they want is to get the stuff secured for the massive Chinese downstream processing empire. Moti is just an excuse for the Grand Fool to move away from Australia and get in bed with China. Thousands of Chinese are coming to Ramu, what's there already is just the tip of the iceberg. 300 Chinese police alone to bash in PNG heads as needed until all the nickel has been mined and is being made into stainless steel in the Chinese factories. PNG gets next to nothing out of all this. The Grand Fool has sold us out to the Chinese.
For background info here's what the Chinese are doing in AFrica-----
Beijing makes play for Africa
By Michael Sheridan
Brutal dictator Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe has hailed China as his "second home" and praised Beijing for its refusal to link aid and investment to human rights or democracy as it scrambles for assets in Africa.
Mugabe’s remarks came in an "exclusive interview" with the Chinese state news agency Xinhua, which rarely boasts of its exclusives but was eager to publicise his appreciation of China’s friendship in contrast to "western hostility". The red carpet has been laid out for 48 African leaders, including Mugabe and Omar al-Bashir of Sudan, as China revels in hosting its biggest summit with the continent since the foundation of the People’s Republic in 1949.
"In most recent times, as the West started being hostile to us, we deliberately declared a Look East policy," Xinhua quoted Mugabe as saying. "These were the friends we relied upon during the liberation struggle and they will not let us down," he added. "For Zimbabwe, going to China is going to our second home. We regard China as a part of us."
Xinhua said China had just extended a £2.7m loan to Zimbabwe to refurbish its biggest stadium, which was built by a Chinese company. It has also offered £110m to finance agricultural production and the purchase of three Chinese-made passenger planes. Opposition groups and human rights activists say prestigious projects such as the stadium refurbishment are inappropriate when millions of Zimbabweans have been impoverished by inflation and disastrous economic policies.
But the Zimbabwe deals are emblematic of China’s refusal to let political criticism stand in the way of its demand for oil, minerals, diamonds and timber from Africa. Xinhua frankly admitted that China invested billions of pounds in Zimbabwe because it is "keen to secure strategic natural resources to help sustain its mouth-watering economic growth of more than 10%". Mugabe said such investment was welcome because it made Zimbabwe less vulnerable to "pressure and political manipulation" by the West. That theme was underlined yesterday when China promised to double its aid to Africa and pledged billions of pounds in loans to forge a "strategic partnership" between the two giants as a political and economic counterweight to western power.
The announcement came in a speech by President Hu Jintao to his guests that also challenged the West’s attempts to link human rights and democracy in Africa to aid and development.
Mugabe and Sudan’s Bashir listened with evident approval as the Chinese leader talked of "a regular high-level political dialogue...to enhance mutual political trust". In Sudan, China’s strategic interest in securing oil supplies has led it repeatedly to block any efforts by the United Nations Security Council to intervene in the conflict in Darfur, where aid agencies say a human catastrophe has occurred. Hu blandly told the Sudanese leader last week that he hoped Bashir’s regime "can find an appropriate settlement, maintain stability, and constantly improve the humanitarian conditions in the region".
Chinese diplomats have also frustrated any UN sanctions against either Sudan or Zimbabwe. Hu preferred to focus on "win-win" economic growth - China and Africa conducted £22 billion worth of trade in the first nine months of this year, up 40% on a year earlier - and of "cultural enrichment" through exchanges of ideas. The latter has baffled many Beijing residents as their capital has abruptly been plastered with propaganda posters promoting all things African - although some of the African visitors may not be wholly pleased by the visual emphasis on elephants, jungle, warlike tribesmen and colourfully clad women of ample proportions carrying outsize bundles on their heads.
However, both sides are determined to overlook any unfortunate cultural misunderstandings in their enthusiasm for doing business without strings attached. The Chinese prime minister Wen Jiabao said China’s aid to Africa would, as always, be "sincere and altruistic" and China has just announced it will cancel about £1 billion in debts owed by some of the poorest African nations. However, China has also revealed itself extremely sensitive to accusations that it is behaving like a modern colonial power. Xinhua yesterday dedicated a commentary to refuting what it called "the fallacy that China is exercising ‘neo-colonialism’ in Africa". "The forces that are circulating the fallacy are fearful of China’s fast growth and the positive development of Sino- African relations," it said, identifying the culprits as "some people from the West".
Their aim, said Xinhua, was to "block China’s peaceful development so as to maintain their established interests in the world arena". China has devoted an extraordinary effort to make Beijing pristine, pollution-free and devoid of traffic jams for the summit, in a useful dress rehearsal for the 2008 Olympic Games. For Mugabe, the reference to China as a "second home" may be more than a pleasantry. Some diplomats in Beijing think the Zimbabwean leader would be assured of a safe refuge there should he ever fall from power.

K50m for Lae roads
PRIME Minister Sir Michael Somare has announced K50 million funding for Lae City roads.
The announcement during the launching of the Government’s National Agriculture Development Plan at the Sir Ignatius Kilage Stadium last Friday, came as a pleasant surprise for Morobe Governor Luther Wenge.
It was also an off-hand thing aimed to sway voters the National Alliance way, as Sir Michael rose from his chair, grabbed the microphone and told more than 2,000 people gathered that K50 million will be given to the Morobe Provincial Government to fix the city roads, some of which are in a state of near collapse.
“I will give K50m to fix the roads in Lae city. I was driven here and felt the my back-side ached so much because there were so many potholes,” Sir Michael said, to loud cheering. However, Sir Michael’s announcement was decried an hour later by People’s Progress Party leader and former Prime Minister Sir Julius Chan, who was in Lae to announce the party’s candidates at another gathering held about 100 metres away, also at the stadium.
Sir Julius, whose party is teaming up with Tru Morobe Group to endorse 10 candidates to contest seats in Morobe, said the “gift is a stupid policy by a stupid government.”
Sir Julius said the announcement was “hot talk” especially with the elections just weeks away. “All this Government is doing is just giving out money without planning. This K50 million is just a talk by a stupid government,” Sir Julius said.
But Forest Minister Patrick Pruaitch later supported the announcement by Sir Michael at another political gathering at Yalu village, where National Alliance candidates for Morobe and Madang were endorsed.
Mr Pruaitch said the Govern-ment will give the money announced by Sir Michael to fix the roads in the city.
“We have about K1.2 billion in surplus and we can just get it out and do the job,” Mr Pruaitch said.
He said the money would be used to fix roads within the city as well as part of the Highlands Highway between Lae and Nadzab.
K1.2 billion in government surplus, the corrupt Pruaitch tells us? If that's the case, maybe the government would like to start by putting more than panadol into the rural aid posts, so that SOME LIVES MIGHT BE SAVED. Or maybe a book or 2 in some rural classrooms, so a few more falling behind rural students have at least a chance at becoming FUNCTIONALLY LITERATE.
YEs, maybe the government instead of saving up K1.2 billion in surplus should have done things that saved people's lives rather than given more money to some politician's road construction company. No doubt that's where the Lae road construction money will go. Right into another politician's pocket.
Papua New Guinea's politicians are the scum of the earth. That includes very nearly every single one of them, including a lot who blind people on this board promote and cheer.
Michael Somare has gotten away with not only covering up the Moti report, but securing the financial healthy future for his entire family. What more could anyone ask for? It really doesn't matter now if he loses, he's stolen the big bag and is off into the fading sunset.
