Whaling to get the go ahead?

The annual meeting of the International Whaling Commission begins on Friday on the Caribbean island of St Kitts.

The indications are that for the first time in 20 years nations which favour whaling may have a majority.

The expected shift comes after years of lobbying by Japan to get developing nations to join the IWC.

Environmental groups accuse these countries of voting with Japan in return for aid, a charge which the Japanese deny.


How sucky is that? There's something about whales that deserves protecting. According to a study on the BBC News today, 61% of Japanese polled said they wouldn't eat whale meat and only 1% would eat it at least once a month. What's the point?
