Mahathir's Pacific Solution
For 20 years Dr Mahathir Mohamad has criticised Australia essentially as being an outpost of Western paternalism in a region determined to throw off its colonial past. That's a message that resonates in Papua New Guinea at the moment where many local politicians fear that Australia is seeking to regain control. On his final overseas visit before his retirement this week, Dr Mahathir pointedly travelled to PNG. Filmed by David Brill, while Thom Cookes reports on the messages he had to deliver.
