Pacific Forum - view from Oz papers
We bought the Age, Herald-Sun and Australian newspapers today just to see their views on the South Pacific Forum. As expected most articles praised Howard, but some papers had a bet both ways re Australia's sometime 'big-stick' colonial attitude. I wonder what John is saying to Laisenia Qarase? Maybe - 'I'm as tall as you are after all,- even though he is standing on a step or something! As usual cartoonists looked at stereotypes of Pacific (old) customs!
