The whale hunter


This is a widely circulated photo of the new Minister of Fisheries, Steingrimur J. Sigfusson working in whaling more than 30 years ago. 

Steingrimur is now looking into retracting the permission for whale-hunting that his predecessor granted on his last day in the job. 

So what point does this photo prove? Nothing except that Steingrimur can change his mind on issues. Which some people would call flip-flopping and others would call sensible. 

Just depends on where you stand doesn’t it?

    The people who are always right never need to change their minds. So Steingrímur clearly isn’t always right…

    Unfortunately, never changing your mind doesn’t make you right – it just makes you a stubborn, arrogant bastard. I wish more people would realize that…
