Chris DeRose's article
Thank Jim for responding so well to an article that is based on ideology rather than fact.
This clown thinks he can speak for 'the rest of the world'.
Unless he has done a huge amount of investigation and polling throughout the world he is just making assumptions.
I like many was totally unaware of what happened in Indonesia.
Either the Indonesian people didn't know or didn't care.

The world is full of kids who want to clean up the globe, but can't manage to clean their own room.
Brilliant statement Ruth.
Half of them haven't even been weaned before they are 40 years of age!

"This latest footage reveals that workers cannot even be relied upon not to start cutting up Australian animals before they are dead," Ms White told ABC TV.
Now that we have revisited the arguments of June - July last year, and Cate has told her little story of the political intrigue regarding Ludwig at the time.
What is the answer now? What should we do?
It was always going to happen again. I said so in June last year. It didn't gain me many friends. Probably lost a few.
Is the industry any better prepared today? Judging by what I heard on ABC/WA Country Hour today, the answer is no.
Is not the question whether it is feasible, in a country like Indonesia, which is made up of hundreds of islands, for an exporter of live animals, Australia, to control what happens to those animals once they have been sold and landed in Indonesia?
If the answer is yes. Then my advice is to go over there and live there for a few months and see if the experience changes your mind.
