    I have changed the wording to reflect the position where the killing went on despite the presence of Greenpeace and Sea Shepherds.

    I had an appointment to go to so by the time I had galloped through the judgement to extract the salient points, I rather rushed the wording of the diary. I hope you feel it now gives a better idea of the position where whales were killed despite their presence in the area. I was careful to use "whaling fleets" as these often consist of "killer" ships bringing the whales they kill to a mother factory ship, a technique used since the days described in Moby Dick. Of course in those days the harpoonists traveled in rowing boats, harpooned the whale and rode in the bucking boat while the whale died of exhaustion and blood loss. Unlike the current "harpoons" which explode in the whale and are supposedly more "humane".

    "Come to Sochi, visit the gay clubs and play with the bears" - NOT a Russian advertising slogan.
