"Dive operators and avid divers can be Sipadan's best partners in safeguarding its reef. We can work with the Government to protect the island's environment," Andrea Ferrari said.
Until I heard Andrea Ferrari's ludicrous spin on the barge accident, I thought Eric Cheng was the runaway favorite for the dive industry's 2006 GREASED BUTTOCKS award. I mean where has this dive industry whore been for the past 10 years? Long before the barge hit Sipadan, dive operators and divers nearly destroyed the island. It was an environmental nightmare for which dive operators and divers were solely to blame.
Sorry Andrea, our memories are not so short; you will not exploit this unfortunate incident to get the dive industry back on the island. Better get back to the snapshots. Your eco spin is way out of focus and your 15 minutes are up.
