    Nothing to do with Brazil so what's your problem. If he is Spanish then according to your twisted judgement he has to hate the dreaded Anglos...whoever they are.

    Welcome to the real world, not the fantasy land that your twisted mind inhabits.

    A well deserved award, if not a little overdue. Many congradulations Antonio, and thank you for your invaluable contribution to the development of the Falkland Islands fishing sector.

    At least there is one Spaniard who is not bamboozled by the cretinous Spanish Government.

    Well done Sir.

    Very well deserved. He has been a credit to his country and to the fishing industry but could sometimes be a little difficult on the tennis court. :)

    How can a Spaniard be a traitor to......Brazil??

    Concentrate on preventing your greatest asset being destroyed.

    Spain have benefitted by fishing around the Falklands, buying licences and making money out of the fish.

    Now all they need to do is recognise that Gibraltar is providing their citizens with employment thanks to, like the Falklands, running an economy properly.

    Spain dropped it's claim to the Falklands a long time ago but has still gained financially out of the Falkland Islands.

    Way to go, and congratulations Antonio on your award.

    I think the English pirates should leave South America. So while you are dominate a piece of my America, you will always be my enemies.

    No matter how long it takes, no matter how many suffer. You are invaders of our land and must be treated as enemies and pirates who are!

    Brasilero falso, mentiroso croto que sos,

    Ha llegado el momento ...para que Argenzuela descolonice el sur y devuelva la Tierra del Fuego y la patagonia a los indígenas.

    I think a suitable comment would be .....get stuffed!.
    Your America ? You really have delusions of grandeur. If you are an Amerindian then you should tell the Portuguese colonists to get out and take all the other immigrants with them. That would be you !

    Why don't you write in Portuguese ?

    “Today most people with power and influence in the Falklands have financial interests in commercial fishing, which they will protect at any cost.

    Within a couple of years the Falklands economy turned from poverty to enormous wealth, but this surplus of wealth came with a hidden price tag. With huge amounts of fish and squid being removed from Falklands waters, it was perhaps not surprising that seabirds and seals which relied on the same fish and squid for food began declining”

    Yes but they can buy new seabirds and seals with all that money.

    “I think the English pirates should leave South America. So while you are dominate a piece of my America, you will always be my enemies.”

    Well chop down more of the rainforest you are totally destroying, make a canoe, get it down to TDF and paddle like heck.

    Then when you get to the Falklands you can hurl insults at the troops who greet your arrival.

    Please video your invasion and put it on the internet so we can laugh at you.

    On cue, you trot out the Bingham report for the umpteenth time.
    I believe this is 13 years old. Do you have anything more recent.
    Argentina ethically fishes, does it ?
    Some of your poster chums have advocated cleaning out the seas so that it would adversely affect the fish stocks in the whole S.Atlantic.
    Remind me which country beginning with AR....... pulled out of the joint fishery talks being SO CONCERNED about overfishing.

    At least you got the name Falklands correct instead of the mythical Malvinas.

    You only just discovered this? This must be about the 100th time this link has been shown here. Means nothing!

    You should check Falklands conservation now, it has come on leaps and bounds since that idiot was in charge. Bingham antagonised everyone he met so as a result of getting rid of him finances, staff and volunteers have increased dramatically.
