Well what a week that was! Barry O'Farrell, who relatively speaking in relation to politicians could be classed as a good bloke, fell on his sword in a situation that could be construed as of his own making.
On a fact-finding trip to the UK last August-September, I obtained a copy of The IWTO Guidelines for Wool Sheep Welfare (April 2013, UK). IWTO stands for International Wool Textile Organisation, of which Australia is a member. It makes for interesting reading.
