    the winners??
    and who cares?
    the important thing here is that the scammed, cheated and deceived tourists that went to those islets with no tourist attractions are the losers.

    and tell that viceroy you have there to stop coloring his hair and to stop plucking his eyebrows. lol

    How did I know who would be first to reply. P. obviously cares or he would not bother posting his usual hate mail.

    The tourists still keep coming despite your advice.

    As the islanders settle into the 21st century , looking good , feeling great , and a bright future,

    the argies are enjoying a revival of the 17th century,
    and as we all know, their future is looking bleak and rotten.

    Well done Mr.Mason....for conning the Falklands into directing the Falklands Tourism from England....
    Now you don't have to be marooned on those god forsaken isles and can have a cushy number in the metropolis and still be paid for it....
    Is accommodation thrown in too...?
    All that snake oil salesmanship came in handy after all....

    Paul just can't stop himself caring about the Falkland Islands.

    He always has to comment. He always has to read and keep up to date.

    “the important thing here is that the scammed, cheated and deceived tourists”

    Were they deceived into thinking there would be CT scanners to use at the visitor centre then?

    'extra-pillow-cedron' only ever comments on FI and UK articles.
    Why is that?

    The ultimate English wanna-be, methinks.

    Just another window-licker at the toy-shop. Soon to be arrested for 'indecent exposure'.

    Mention the Falkland Islands and he starts sweating like Micheal Jackson on a visit to Hamley's...

    Think about it. The Director of tourism should be where the main market is.
    Come on, you are bright enough to figure out that one !

    it is funny that in ALL those 4th class websites announced in this 4th class site, all the images you can see are of birds, specially, penguins, taken at a very short range.
    so, you can see the bird in detail, but you cannot see a shite of the landscape.

    the conclusion is, apart from a bunch of birds, they do not have a shite to show to the world.

    and let me tell you something, if this bunch of scammers want to attract tourists there, they would have to build, at least, one (1) decent hotel.
    at least 1 (one).
    understood?

    As you so succinctly put it “they do not have a shite to show to the world.”

    However, if you wish to see real shite, why not visit Ushuaia -----they have it in abundance and it's the real human variety.
