Peter Garrett: 2009 Whale killing - They're all yours.. Japs

clipped from
THE Rudd government has quietly moved to axe its Special Envoy on Whaling after announcing the job with much fanfare before the last election.
After being touted by Environment Minister Peter Garrett as Australia's "first" anti-whaling envoy, the Budget confirms that the position has now been scrapped

The May Budget signals the end of the envoy, with no additional funding for the office or for the Government's plans to challenge to Japanese whaling in the International Court of Justice.
