Mr Harper and Mr Abbott have been called "conservative cousins" with "maple syrup mateship" in the past. A look at this morning's extensive spread and it's easy to see why.

However we do have some questions; where's Mr Harper's jacket? why is Mr Abbott not drinking tea or coffee? Questions, questions.

*gasp*.

So while Australia's frenemies New Zealand get a chance to mix with Mr Abbott.

And there's no doubt some willingness to schmooze with China and the US.
