Well done, Senator Ian Campbell.
The Australian Environment Minister worked tirelessly to convince some wavering delegates to the International Whaling Commission (IWC) to oppose Japan’s lust for whale meat.
The cetacean slaughterers have dug in for a long fight, and have indicated they will ignore the IWC and continue their hunting anyway.
The IWC motion is a start, but ultimately, someone is going to have to start playing hardball with the whalers.
Last year the Navy hunted half way round the world to catch poachers of the Patagonian Toothfish. In the same way, I hope they go hunting for whalers soon.
