    I was wondering if these people, surely on expenses and well paid going around “investigating” when they know perfectly well of the “Rivero” Law, to actually boycott Falkland products and blockade its trade, what do they expect to find?
    They also know of Argentine efforts to keep the Falklands outside Mercosur.
    Is it a case a a good job if you can get it? .. What happened to the Falkland's stand in Montevideo exposition a few months ago!
    Should Argentines not start looking at a mirror before they try to go outside, what is the point of this?

    No way this flies. It is not possible to have a normal economic relationship with a country which is in denial of political reality. Who would want to deal with an Argie business anyway? If history teaches us anything it is that any Contract with an Argie is not worth the paper it is written on. Falklanders should just continue to deal with businesses based in Chile, Uruguay and other sensible countries and leave the Argies to go fuck themselves.

    Think's (non active) project in Malvinas programmed for success...

    1) Buying..., through one of the multiple frontmen (preferably an Anglo) of Argie billonaire and Malvinas fan..., Mr. Eduardo Sergio Elsztain..., a little traditional renownedl Export/Import company in Uruguay that owns a couple of small coasters...
    Lets call it Think Inc. Transport...

    2) Opening in Malvinas of a Megastore..., offering almost all a Kelpers' heart could desire at a 20% lower price than the competition...
    Lets call it Think Inc. Retail...

    3) Once the Chandlery..., Popeye Timlander1..., and any other local economic actor have been push out of the market by the invisible hand of Capitalism (and the intrinsic cheeseparing nature of them Kelpers)..., lets call it Think Inc. Monopoly...,we could move on to point 4)...

    4) Lets call it Think Inc. Fluorination...

    “appears to have involved a dearth of research”

    More like a death of research.

    Fair play to them for getting paid by that university for doing jack squit.

    How's the Malvinas Chunnel project going?

    Did they start tunnelling in 1982 and if what tunnelling equipment are they using as they haven't finished yet and it's only 400 miles to the Falklands?

    Where are the Super Gauchos with 2ft (60cm) knives that Korned Beef Kate promised in 1982?

    They're taking a long time to show.
