    Mr Think, seems like you should be an ideal candidate.
    Nowt too onerous in meeting these conditions
    “Winners will be staying with a local family, to experience first-hand the life in the Falkland Islands.”

    Seems like the application profile is specifically tailored to receive your bid! Should be an easy walkover for you.

    Never too late for an old dog to turn new tricks; you should get your scholarship application in. The Falklands might soon be well positioned to offer exile status to Mr Macri if his woes escalate much further. He could subscribe... how do you say it, an Honorary Fellow, for trying his best...
    As for The Telegraph, normally a great read and much favoured over that leftist, liberalist clap trap Guardian/Observer, but the article you quote was a missile or two short of its mark; a disappointment for you.
