Australia does something about whaling

The Australian government has stepped up on whaling, telling Japan to stop its "scientific research" in the Southern Ocean or be taken to the International Court of Justice. Good. Meanwhile, I recall that last month, John Key got an easy headline by declaring that he had a secret plan to end the Vietnam War end Southern Ocean whaling. And since then, nothing. I guess the lesson is that Rudd acts, while Key just engages in cheap talk.
