"Take Australia out of the market, that sledge hammering will continue." And so says Simon Crean from Australian Live Exporters Council.
Yep, thats right... despite all evidence to the contrary, including the cattle sledgehammering shown last night on ABCs 730 report, but stretching back to before the 1985 Senate Enquiry, they repeat the mantra that live export improves animal welfare.
Should we send Australian children to third world countries too... to improve child education......or help reduce child labour?
Come on Simon.....no-one believes that line any more..
