Relief....for now.

A collective sigh of relief was heard yesterday throughout many rural communities as the two Bills for the banning of live export from Australia were voted down in an overwhelming majority. In fact, they didn't get a vote. Independant MP Andrew Wilke and Greens MP Adam Bandt cut lonely figures on the benches as the parliment shunned their Bills.

But don't think it's over, not by a long shot. Already Animal Australia has released "new" footage from Turkey, although they can not confirm whether the animals shown are Australian or not.

Interesting to say the least reading a few major papers claiming that these were horrific scenes of Australian cattle.....
And yet:
a)As you rightly said they could not ascertain as to whether they were Australian or not.
b)The images shown in the papers were not cattle, they were actually sheep.....
