    ...I don't think people actually like corruption, Patrick. If those countries are accepting the help then presumably what they wish is to get rid of it.

    What is your problem?

    I know your heart aches because the Brits kicked the invasion forces of the Argentine South Atlantic Empire off of the Falkland Islands in 1982 but you can't hold a grudge for the rest of your life - grow up.

    The question is why is this piece appearing in Mercopenguin, a British government propaganda organ supposedly devoted to America, South America and the “South Atlantic”?

    Lynn - So El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala are no longer in America? I don't know where you are from but, clearly, geography seems to be your weak spot!
    When I was in El Salvador just a few weeks ago it was clearly in America - still is today!

    It's the same @Voice, the ones that matter are all buzzing around London !
    No @Darragh, I'm just tired of always reading Britain's interest and affairs outside of their own country, always pedantically being about their judgmental wishes to influence or coerce things to the way they want to see them be. You guys don't like anybody, you just want everyone to do “something” differently to the way they are doing it now.
    As it turns out, we all came to this planet to make our nations and share it equally. And equally means we all have the same worth and all our ideas are as important as the next guys. The world ought not to be about domination, it ought to be about getting it right. And getting it right together. Not by some doing what others want, nor having an easy ride just following others by being their “biggest fans”

    What a load of twaddle ! According to you, the UK is the only country in the world trying to push its own interests. Russia and China are faultless?. Every country in the world is trying to push their own interests to the outside world....even your beloved Argentina.
    Patrick, you are SO BIASED against the UK that your comments are worthless in any rational debate.
