In an after-dinner speech at a fund-raising luncheon in Walla Walla on Tuesday, the Australian prime minister assured the Japanese that they could hunt all the "fat bastard' whales in its claimed Antarctic territory. He further commented that he was 'Sick to the back teeth of all those whining pansies droning on and on about saving those plankton-murderers.'

The Japanese have apparently responded warmly and have revised their quota from 30 whales per year, to 'all' of them in one-go. In response to the Australian prime minister's U-turn on previously set policies regarding whaling, The Japanese have decided to reciprocate the friendly gesture and have agreed to supply the Australian government with detailed results from their scientific whaling activities, and free whale sandwiches for school-children.

Aso, the Japanese prime minister has stated Australia's new stance on whaling could begin a new era of mutually beneficial ventures, and has requested that scientific hunting of all the penguins in Tasmania also be considered and asked what else there was around the place they could have as well.

Ah well! Neither of them made particularly good pets anyhow.

Australia - New Zealand unification.

(AFP) – Aug 20, 2009

SYDNEY — Australia and New Zealand on Thursday agreed to make travel easier for citizens between the two countries as part of moves towards a joint economic market.

Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and his New Zealand counterpart John Key said they had agreed to speed up an "ambitious" unification of the nations' economies and would also consider establishing a joint military corps.

Under a proposed relaxation of border security between the countries, Australians travelling to New Zealand would be able to check in electronically and scan their own passports through a customs checkpoint.

Rudd said streamlining travel was a key part of boosting the deep and intense business relationship between the two countries, and it was a "logical extension" to bring New Zealand into Australia's economic framework.

"The objective is to make it easier for both peoples on both sides of the Tasman to travel to each other's countries. That is particularly for the benefit of our business communities," he said.

Key said more than one million Australians travelled to New Zealand every year and "whatever we can do to make that process less painful, to make it more like a domestic experience and streamline it, I think is very important."

Biosecurity processes would be eased so only select passengers, identified by risk profiling, would be screened, and an Australian would be able to clear airport security in as little as eight minutes, he added.

Rudd said he and Key had agreed to accelerate moves to harmonise accounting and business reporting standards, and signed off on investment thresholds.

"The idea of a single economic market is one to which we are both committed, we think it's in the interest of our combined business communities to work that way," he said.

They had also discussed the establishment of a joint military detachment akin to the Australia and New Zealand Army Corps, or ANZAC, which first fought together under a common banner in World War I, added Rudd.

"We believe given the enormous bonds which already exist between our two armed forces, their common training doctrines, and the compatibility of so much of their equipment that this is actually a useful thing for us to do together," he said.
