This would be great time to go cap in hand to China looking for assistance rather than relying on former allies NZ and Aust. Don't just claim the 'look North policy', live it and spare the taxpayers in those countries, plz. Where are all the new friends. Perhaps Nicaragua, Azerbaijan and Cuba can also assist?

Hurrah.... Australia is cutting their aid budget to others and directing it to fund refugees they are forced to accomodate on the mainland. Looks like Fiji will have to stand in line. Any aid Australia gives, if any at all, should happen after 2014, assuming it is the outcome we want.
