    Sir Julius, the country does not need recycled leaders. See what happens in his own backyard, what real positive changes has Lihir Gold brought to his people. He was their member of Parliament and PM when Lihir was in the early stages of development and now is in a sorry, regrettable state. What comes after the big hole and environmental damage in your backyard, Sir?

    Look at the men on the bottom photo. What are they? Answer- Full of greed, money seekers, status, pride and that's all they. Nothing in their heads to contribute to the welfare of the people they bought their votes from. What do people expect in return for votes that were bought...Bottom photo!
