Well everyone has something to say but two of our favourite articles to emerge were:
Maritime Executive: maritime-executive.com/article/live-export-industry-needs-tough-cop
Wendy Laursen's article in Maritime Executive highlights why no review will ever change this industry...3 substantial critical reviews in 15 years....and absolutely nothing changes.
Latika Bourke's in SMH was (as usual) on form and whilst overlooking the fact that the Department of Ag has been woeful for 15 years, wrote a gloriously scathing piece: "The department's carpets must sit a foot-high with all that has been swept under them".
This Dept cant change, the industry wont change and as one VALE member observed, why would any government bother spending money to fix the inoperable.....?
