I guess New Ireland Province’s new vessel MV Autonomy is the flagship for Sir Julius’ bid for an autonomous government. She started her journey from Cairns this morning at 8am and arrived at noon in the province. Congratulations NIP and thanks to Mary Tulasoi for keeping us updated.

The only thing we found titillating is the question posed by former TV personality and journalist Titi Gabi. Her exact words were “Is Paul Tienstein in it?”

Contrary to rumour, Tienstein is reported to be in Cairns and has reportedly filed an affidavit for a permanent injunction to restrict the Task Force Sweep from investigating him.

Word of advice to him, buy a boat and declare it a sovereign nation because that’s the only way you won’t be extradited.
