Our precarious dairy industry has been plagued by many pests in recent years. Brucellosis was one, high-priced consultants another, and now TB is threatening the entire industry. Why not seek help from our neighbours – Aust and NZ – who happen to have world class dairy industries? Is it because Frank and Khaiyum have to pretend to themselves that Australia and New Zealand are not actually part of our region. They’re just donor countries, no different to any of the others. The fact is they are neighbours. Suva is cloer to Auckland and Brisbane than it is to Port Moresby. There are almost as many Samoans in New Zealand as there are in Samoa. New Zealand and Australia are part of our region. Get over it Frank.
