The Distillery: Girt by cheese

Not all jotters are convinced by Murray Goulburn's decision to pull out the national interest card in its Warrnambool bid.

The chase for Warrnambool Cheese and Butter intensified on Friday with Murray Goulburn entering the fray. Given the declared interest of Saputo and Bega Cheese, Warrnambool now justifiably feels like the prettiest girl at the prom.

For now, the decision of which hand to choose is an easy one, with the latest bid trumping those it already had to mull over. But that is likely to change, with a few twists and turns in the chase still ahead, according to the commentariat.
