The day of the triffids

Well, not quite triffids, but the day's proceedings were certainly dominated by plants, which took up most of the time in Committee 1 - where the more lively issues are generally discussed.

Meanwhile, the gearing up for tomorrow's media-extravaganza began in earnest: looking likely to come up tomorrow are Bluefin Tuna, sharks, and the EU Tiger resolution document.

Rather like London buses, you wait for a really big issue to arise, and along come at least 3 or 4 together. It could well be a long, long day...

Whether we'll actually get to the vote on some of these remains to be seen - somewhere there was talk of three hours maximum to discuss the tuna. If that isn't enough, off we go to a working group which could report at any time. Place your bets...the once thing certain is the heat will be on in Doha tomorrow.
