Richard Green responds to this from Malcolm and this from me:

On the Japanese media reaction, may it also be restated how difficult this reaction is to actually find. It's very hard to forget this with the prominence an issue can take in the Australian media's slow January period, but the word count of one Australian paper's daily coverage of whaling probably outnumbers the total number of words on the topic in the Japanese media in a year, and possibly the number of Japanese in Japan who are aware that this is an issue at all.
