Dealer Groups Propose Administrative Fix for Antique Ivory Ban
CPO has already reported that a ban on the trade in ivory meant to help protect elephants from slaughter also threatens to make antiques made from that material worthless. Now in response, two prominent trade groups representing the interests of antiques dealers have proposed the creation of an art advisory panel to help ensure that the legitimate trade in antique ivory objects can continue. Antique ivory objects can be of considerable artistic and historical value. Shouldn't they be saved too?

"I have long ago ceased to believe that Mr Tompa actually believes a word of what he writes as part of his paid lobbying. The guy is a menace to informed debate with his various deliberate misinterpretations and red herring arguments."
Hmmm. I along with many others ceased to believe that Mr Barford from Warsaw, the author of the paragraph above, actually believes a word of what he writes. We also believe he is a menace to informed debate with his various deliberate misinterpretations and red herring arguments for which he is widely known to be the leading exponent.
