    Default Saving the Whales

    Australia took Japan to the International Court of Justice in the Hague, the Netherlands, to stop the Japanese from killing thousands of whales in the Antarctic Ocean below Australia.

    And to their credit, both Japan and Australia agreed to accept the ruling of the Court.

    And yesterday the Court found in Australia's favour and saved the whales.

    Then Australia invited Japan to join them in the scientific study of whales without killing them.

    It was a long and hard fought case, but Australia and Japan remained friends throughout.

    I am keeping a whale in my bathtub.
    But I can only save one.

    The rest are up to all of you.

    Have they actually stopped though? I thought they were still hunting them regardless of any court rulings/laws.

    Yes, the Japanese have fully accepted the ruling of the Court of International Justice and have stopped whaling in the Antarctic Ocean. And to show they are genuine, they have stopped selling whale meat. Also they have stopped selling dolphin meat.

    And I presume they have stopped whaling altogether.

    And as I write our Prime Minister, Tony Abbott, is in Japan negotiating a free trade agreement with Japan.

    And our Prime Minister is the first Westerner to be invited to attend the meeting of the Japanese Defence Security Council.

    So we will be having closer defence ties with Japan. This is handy as the Japanese have an excellent drive train for our new submarines.

    And just as the Prime Minister re-introduced Knighthoods to Oz, Prince William and Duchess Kate have arrived to introduce us to baby George.
