The man chatting with Kelly on the photo here at the IWC meeting is Richard Black of the BBC.
Richard has just published this afternoon an excellent sober blogpiece that all non-governmental and governmental advocates here [pro- and anti-whaling advocates alike] should read carefully, I think.
The IWC will elect its new chairman in the next two days. There are several excellent [undeclared] candidates. But when I read his blogpiece this afternoon I thought that in a way it's a pity Richard can't be one of them. He'd do a good job reminding everyone to change the tune.
