AU may back off unsuccessful "Pacific Solution"

AU may back off unsuccessful "Pacific Solution"

    That's not just marked, it's a 180! There was a bit of interest in this story here a while ago, but I thought this new wrinkle in AU's aid-for-beds deal with Pacific nations didn't merit another "FPP." (see also 1, 2)
