Harpoon the action clause if you can!
The best less-than-50-word comment on the Minister’s energetic intervention on behalf of Australia’s whales wins a signed copy of James Dryburgh’s Tarkine classic ‘Balfour Correspondent’.
Now here it is, the recent announcement from our new hard-working Minister Price:
The Australian Government is resolutely opposed to all forms of commercial and so-called ‘scientific’ whaling. Sending a vessel to the Southern Ocean will not stop Japan whaling, nor would it achieve any other policy or legal objectives. The Government welcomed the International Whaling Commission’s recent rejection of Japan’s proposal to overturn the global moratorium on commercial whaling. The Commission also rejected attempts to weaken its decision-making rules and establish catch-limits for commercial whaling. We worked hard with partner countries in the Commission to achieve this outcome.
Bob Brown will be judging the competition.
