Howard has balls, Clark just whimpers

John Howard has gone where Clark and Mallard feared to tread, he has canned the Australian Cricket tour of Zimbabwe. 

[quote]The Mugabe regime is behaving like the Gestapo towards its political opponents. The living standards in the country are probably the lowest of any in the world, you have an absolutely unbelievable rate of inflation.

I have no doubt that if this tour goes ahead it will be an enormous boost to this grubby dictator.

"We do have power over people's passports, We have made our position very clear. We've written to Cricket Australia, I think Cricket Australia does understand our position.[/quote]

By making this a government ban he has effectively immunised the ACB from any fine. 

A man of principle, whereas Clark and Mallard are mere cowards for not doing the same when they had the opportunity.

    You will have heard of course that Zimbabwe has just been given the Chair of the UN Development Commission.

    Not that its relevant to cricket of course but interesting in its own right
