    I knew that China was active in PNG, didn’t know that they had achieved that level of control. What are idiot leaders doing about and for our neighborhood? I know PNG is a corrupt, tribal country but it shouldn’t be too hard to keep them on our side. If they go over to the dark side it could become very uncomfortable for us.

    obviously human rights are not an issue for the majority of those represented within UN.

    Do a Donald…. show some nuts and pull the pin.

  3. Mak Siccar

    Australia – Stop funding and participating in the UN now!

  4. exsteelworker

    Hopefully Trump romps it in in November and the first job on the list, get rid of the UN WHO and all the other unelected swill that think their shit don’t stink. Some of those countries that voted with China still have slaves!… womens rights? Non existent…..where are all the BLM protests in front of the UN in NY? Its only the free Western world Governments/people that are bad.

  5. Up The Workers!

    Gee, with a cast of clowns like that, how come Comrade Kevin Rudd isn’t Ringmaster with Comrade Dodgy Dan (He Likes Chi-Coms) serving out the Bat Soup to the audience?

    US:
    – defund the UN
    – kick it out of NY. Beijing sounds nice.

    The western / freedom powers need to start another organisation. Entry requirements – a functioning democracy.

    What do you call a vote of despots and tyrants?

    The UN and all its works?

    Or is that the devil and all his works?

    Meh! Same, same!

    PNG is a supporter of China so perhaps it’s about time we started to put some pressure on PNG to let them know that we have been, and hopefully always will be, their friends. China on the other hand is not doing anything for PNG without requiring a payback.

  9. Perfidious Albino

    Well, at least we get an update on who is in the tank for the ChiComs now, and/or running a similarly totalitarian regime.

  10. Hay Stockard

    We would be out of the UN if our dear leaders didn’t harbour ambitions for a job with that stinking corpse.

    China has worked out you don’t need to get the nation on board – just the people who make the laws and sign the treaties.

    By continueing to be a member and pay dues we give legitimacy to this body. Walk away.

  13. billie

    wow, PNG on the list of despots and tyrants

  14. Delta

    At least NZ opposed the motion. Maybe the propaganda isn’t quite as promised.

  15. stackja

    PNG was never ready for independence. UN and Gough again.

    A: Success for the Belt and Road Initiative.

    Things are at a low point when even the Grauniad is forced to comment on the dazzling hypocrisy of Izlamic states in supporting China against their co-religionists:

    In July 2019, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Algeria and other M_uslim-majority states that pose as defenders of the faith helped to block a western motion at the United Nations calling for China to allow “independent international observers” into the Xinjiang region. Iran issues occasional criticisms but wants Chinese support in its struggle against the Trump administration and so keeps its complaints coded. Their hypocrisy is almost funny, if you take your humour black. Iran, Egypt, Syria and dozens of other countries that could not tolerate a magical realist novel can live with the mass sterilisation of M_uslim women. They will give concentration camps a conniving wink of approval, but draw the line at cartoons in a Danish newspaper.

    [No link, naughty I word.]

    It appears that Algeria abstained from the vote on Hong Kong.
    Despots gotta despot. Tyrants gotta tyrant.

    That PNG sided with the Chicoms is no surprise. After all, quite a few of the pollies in the Port Morseby cesspit regard AUS as nothing more than a post-colonial fiscal corpse to be bled dry. Do you think they’re not loving the tension between AUS and PRC? And anyway, whose to say a significant portion of the AUS body politic is not every bit as corrupt and in the pocket of Beijing as its PNG counterpart?

  18. calli

    China on the other hand is not doing anything for PNG without requiring a payback.

    Which is something that PNG knows all too well – it’s part of their own culture.

    We are the stupid outliers here – pouring money and expertise in, and when we expect something in exchange, we are mercilessly humbugged.

    The PNG horse bolted long ago.

    A similarly useful list was generated when Castro died – a list of those who lamented.
    The world is dividing in two because that’s the way the human psyche likes it.
    Let antifa and friends live in China where their pseudo-maoism belongs, where they will find their version of peace and justice for all.

  20. Dr Faustus

    From the Grauniad (no link, naughty word);

    In July 2019, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Algeria and other M_us_lim-majority states that pose as defenders of the faith helped to block a western motion at the United Nations calling for China to allow “independent international observers” into the Xinjiang region.

    OBOR trumps Mo.

    It’s fun that the EU has been trying to force Britain to continue to accept ECHR, ECJ and EU oversight of everything from green energy to the bendiness of bananas. Only in the last week or so they’ve worked out, to their consternation, that Boris and the British people will pull the plug completely rather than submit to their undemocratic repression.

    The UNHRC is exactly the same. A fascist organisation which wants everyone to kowtow.

  22. Bronson

    Australia has long ignored PNG just throwing money at them to assuage its’ post colonial guilt. Most of the money ends up back in Australia in the form of property owned by elites in PNG. China has been openly buying PNG for years and Australia has done and continues to do nothing. Incompetents have miss read and miss managed relationships with PNG consistently just look at the mess that is Bouganville thousands dead an island in ruins because of CRA and the Australia government blind support of its activities on the island.

    They will give concentration camps a conniving wink of approval, but draw the line at cartoons in a Danish newspaper.

    Amazing that the Chicoms get a free pass isn’t it. It’s as if the RoP respect strength far more than human rights.

    There might be a lesson in there somewhere.

  24. jupes

    The UNHRC is exactly the same. A fascist organisation which wants everyone to kowtow.

    DFAT and the government is stupid enough to actually pay millions to be a member of this evil organisation. “We can reform it from the inside” they think.

    How’s that plan going you fools?

  25. The BigBlueCat

    Some troll will turn up and tell you you don’t know what you’re talking about coz your ignorant and shouldn’t be posting on a “libertarian and centre-right blog” coz you’re all leftists … and isn’t Trump a bigger despot and tyrant? Of course, we know he’s neither, and anyone is free to post their opinions despite their leanings or education – just ask Monty and Numbers.

  26. Tom

    Opposing: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Belize, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Iceland, Ireland, Germany, Japan, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Marshall Islands, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Palau, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, and the U.K.

    And here I was thinking Belize was just some shitbox central American banana republic. At least they aspire to be civilised.

    Plus all three Baltic republics — Estonia Latvia and Lithuania — are on the side of the free world. And I hear that, after a century in the shadow of Soviet fascism, they breed hot chicks. Must go there.

  27. Professor Fred Lenin

    You can reform it from within? Yeah right that works , the UK and others tried to reform the globatist EU for years in vain the answer is to defund and ignore anythng it says if they say black you say white ,things like tha0t die of irrelevence quickly like politicians and “soooerstars “ ,nothing hurts them more than being ignored ,look at those two prats krud and turnbull lack of attention really plays with their minds .
    PNG is a bribe riden shitheap ,fancy freeing West Paua for the Chinese to take over ,support Indonesis they keep the lid on it .

    UNHCR, another in the long list of candidates ripe for Rabzing
    Shut.It.Down.
    Fire.Them.All
    Raze.The.Buildings.
    Salt.The.Earth.

  29. Bela Bartok

    Top list: Sh*thole countries
    Bottom list: not yet.

    The only omission in the top list was Danandrewstan.

  30. calli

    Heh. Something I gleaned from my visit to Estonia was that they loathe the Soviets. And all the ladies sound like Natasha Fatale.

  31. Ceres

    The top list probably all of them are in the well known debt trap to China. Don’t want to upset their Chinese masters. Sri Lanka has already had a Port confiscated when they defaulted on a Chinese “loan”.
    Victoriastan is about to join the debt trap if Xi Jingpin’s disciple, dictator Dan, has his way.

  32. Professor Fred Lenin

    Wonder if the Chinese will pressure President Biden over his sons billion dollar “\loan “ , think about that ! the communist media dont mention it do they ?. Burisma will come into its own when Biden wins ,due to illegal and fraudulent votes and the civil war dead voters list .
    Isnt that paedo Biden a corrupt , cheating ,theiving , lying sex pervert of a creature ?
    The decromats are treating their base like stupid moronic idiots its insulting .

    Antigua & Barbuda surprised me. I thought that their commonwealth links might have kept their leadership in the sanity camp

  34. Pyrmonter

    The invitations to the Queen’s funeral for the Presidents of Gambia, Zimbabwe and Zambia and the GG of Antigua should disappear in the post when that sad day comes. What is the Commonwealth for if not to support the freedom of the Queen’s former subjects?

  35. Petros

    Well if Papua belonged to Queensland in the past then we could use the same argument that China does with regards to Hong Kong. PNG might think twice about where their loyalties lie.

  36. Jeremy

    Simples – out of 167 countries in the world the Economist rates only 51 as full or flawed democracies. The rest are considered Hybrid or Authoritarian.
    Democracies are outvoted.
    The UN is like a flock of lambs who, seeing a pack of wolves three times their numbers decide that if they all join together in one big organization the wolves will change their behaviour.
    The naive arrogance of the do-gooders is astounding!
    Why do we belong – let alone help pay for – an organization that will inevitably vote against our interests?
