Live exports to Indonesia are slashed

Indonesia's drastic reduction of live imports from Australia is due to three things: Natural Variation, Relationship and Food Security concerns. Blame is down to randomness, Abbott and Rudd/Gillard respectively.

This is a huge call and requires some unpacking, but that's how I see it. But overall it's about a fraught relationship; one that successive governments from Howard, onwards, have been unable to manage.
