For those voters who thought Kevin Rudd was going to do something about whaling ...

He fooled you!

In accordance with what has become standard operating procedure for the Federal Government, the Special Envoy on Whaling was quietly harpooned in last week's Budget with little attention or mourning.

What the Australian taxpayer effectively paid for was a whole lot of spin.

See - Peter Garrett betrays the whales.

$13.9 million later and quietly forgotten - hoping the voters won't notice ...

Be interesting to see what spin Rudd puts on this:

'We have been affected by the GFC'

'I have set up a committee to review the funding'

'The level of funding is the same as it was under Prime Minister Howard'.
