Who better to help the Australian republican cause than the Duke of Edinburgh? Staff and students at Wagga Wagga's Charles Sturt university were snubbed this week when the Duke refused to don protective clothing to tour the campus's 10 tonne a year pilot cheese plant. But the day's production was effectively lost even before the Duke arrived on the scene. Someone had the bright idea of sending sniffer dogs ahead of the royal party. Presumably the dogs had not worn body suits. {{COUNTERPOINT }}
