Well, it was always a longshot.
Otway has sold the consigment to someone else....and the new owners dont want VALE onboard...what a surprise.
So....yep, will all be up to those independent shipboard vets now....oh and the government (because they are so independent).
And bad luck VALE re the wasted flight bookings! Perhaps ALEC would like to contribute....!
BUT...the real issue is....the animals...oh thats ok, they are merely a saleable commodity.
