Land Rights For Gay Whales

By che - 23 May 2005 11

The Comrade is speaking up to protect all the whales in the ACT in this media release. I agree whaling must be stopped and I’m all for Australia enforcing our laws in Australian waters, but I’m not sure what whales we have here in the ACT that the Comrade is protecting. While Jervis Bay is part of the ACT and does have whales but I’m not sure if the the Comrade has jurisdiction over the the area.

On a side note the Eden Killer Whale Museum informs us that there is only one whale oil product that cannot now be manufactured synthetically, plus everyone should read the story about Old Tom.

What’s Your opinion?

I actually just read the Comrade’s press release and it is truley bizarre.

I agree with him 100% that all whaling should stop, but that press release has nothing to do with whaling and all to do with having a cheap shot at the Federal government.

interesting use of the word frolic. in a government sense it has a definite legal definition.

appropriate in this instance.

Shame on you all for neglecting this serious issue. Good on Mr Stanhopeless for speaking out against this atrocity!
If anyone is going to hunt our whales, it should be us! You never know when you might get a hankering for whale meat – wouldn’t it be terrible if the Japanese hunting had already depleted our stocks? We’d probably then have to accept another free trade shafting from the USA to get some oily morsels!

Fresh water dolphins from the Amazon would be seriously cool…..

Well we could always stock the Lake with fresh water dolphins. That would be a good little tourism possibility too.

Then the CM could enjoy his little frolic all the more.

I’ve always wanted to do whale watching tours in LBG, then you can do what the tour boat operators do when there aren’t any whales present…

Get everybody so pissed it’s a memorable occasion and then go back to shore…

The public indemnity on whale watching tours in LBG would be frightening though (especially if the insurers knew that there weren’t any whales and you were just going to get everybody pissed)

The day we see Japanese whaling boats hunting whales in “Australian (Capital) Territorial Waters” will be the day Canberrans can take the leader of our Principality seriously!!

Firing the harpoon would probably capsize the paddle-boat

hehehehe, anyone want to go whale hunting on Lake Burley Griffin and see what happens?

Thumper 4:43 pm 23 May 05

Interesting that the Comrade is speaking out against such things when whales are already protected by commonwealth law, in fact the EPBC Act as administered by the Dept of Environment and Heritage. In fact, you can’t even go near one in a boat.

What a bloody waste of space and he’s supposed to have legal qualifications?

What about public housing? What about Community Fire Units? What about the coroner, or the hospital, or the buses, or….

*sigh*
