    Oh boy!

    This message board is going to be funny in so many different ways. So let me get the ball rolling.

    “The Tierra del Fuego Malvinas Question Provincial Observatory Advisory Council”

    WTF? If this isn't the true definition of a waste of money quango I don't know what is.

    First what does it observe? And is that observation so specialised as needing an entire organisation? Doesn't anyone in Tierra del Fuego have access to Google?

    Second. What are they advising exactly? How to invade properly next time?

    “former Malvinas combatant Alejandro Betts ”

    Really? He was a combatant?

    Well at least the article was correct in calling him “former Falklands Islander”. I suppose he is a current Isla Malvinero. Even though that place only exists in such worthless organisations like The Tierra del Fuego Malvinas Question Provincial Observatory Advisory Council.

    Congrats Alex. Your conversion is no complete. You are officially employed to try and make a 74 year old fairytale real.
