    Third rate conferences Think? What are we talking about? CELAC? MERCOSUR? The OAS? There are so many 3rd raters in that part of the world.

    As for 'lobbying' - who is going to who?

    Assuming the weather improves.

    Think,
    Pretty sure all costs and expenses in these MPs coming to the Islands are fully paid for by Falkland Islands Govt. Those of our MLAs and others going overseas on govt business are also fully covered by us local taxpayers as well.
