We cannot leave Iraq because the country would collapse into chaos, and we cannot stop using the AWB because markets will disappear:
AWB warned key markets could be threatened by the loss of its veto power.As opposed to financing brutal dictators with bribes, which is just great for business, right?
"If any changes are made to the bulk veto system for this harvest there is potential for wheat growers to lose valuable access to important long-standing markets like Japan and Korea," AWB national pool manager David Johnson said.
"Changing the bulk veto at this time could result in the national pool receiving lower quality wheat, which it must accept under its obligation to be the receiver of last resort.
"This could result in Australian wheat growers losing valuable international customers to our overseas competitors."
