Johnny Depp and his dogs:
A bit of a laugh, a bit embarrassing and really a blip in the media cycle compared to the big issues of Budget control and Terrorism BUT I say NO!
This is not a small issue because our protection of our livestock and animals is vital plus the fact that it just further illustrates the real gap between reality and the rose coloured, self centred world that the "Useful Idiots" and Hollywood Crusaders of all causes on the Left.
These same people whom our kids and many adults flock to see, listen to and believe every word they say as they continue to idolise them as if they were sent from another world with a gift of wisdom and knowledge not yet obtained by us mere mortals.
To think that this bloke, Johnny Depp and or his entourage had no idea that there was a quarantine requirement for animals to enter this country, is simply unbelievable. Of course they knew, thus leading to my point of the very arrogance and disregard these people have for others outside of their world.
Bravo to the Federal Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce, for personally taking up this issue and showing no favour or exception to Johnny Depp just because this bloke was a famous Hollywood actor. Though somehow I suspect that if the ALP was in Government that the whole thing would have been swept under the rug and none of us would have know about the violation.
Although we do need to maintain our rigorous customs and border protection process when it comes to animal imports, I wish we were just a little tougher when it comes to some of the humans that we allow into this country!
Welcome to Australia Johnny, don't let the door hit you on the ass on the way out.
