    Captain more worried about rescuers eating all his food than damage to Reef

    THE captain of a stranded Chinese coal ship is concerned about Australian rescue teams drinking his crew's water and eating their food but not the oil spill threatening Queensland's Great Barrier Reef.

    The Courier-Mail reports Captain Wang Jichang told Brisbane's Chinese Consul-General Ren Gongping that the leaking of oil was "not serious" and had been exaggerated, but the dwindling food supplies on the Shen Neng 1 were a concern.

    "They need some more water because the rescue team is consuming the water and food," Mr Ren said.

    "They need that. That is a problem at the moment.

    "The leakage is not very serious so far. So far he (Capt Wang) cannot see the oil on the sea."

    Cant wait for Capt Wang to get the bill from the Australian Government and the salvage crews. Should add up to quite a few bottles of water.

    Ignorant bastard . . . I wonder, does maritime law or even sea-based jurisdictional law allow for the guy to be charged?

    To be fair, there aren't many shops out there and they don't look like they will be going anywhere for a while......

    I am sure some enterprising Chinese Take-a-way would deliver.
