    This might be to curry favor with UK, to make sure the extradition for Assange goes through.

    Vietnam and Malaysia are increasingly important emerging markets. Argentina is a major producer of commodities and will continue to be for the foreseeable future. A pity that Sweden has to make this decision, but the reality is that two way trade and tourism is limited. Why don’t you British do the same? Your country is increasingly irrelevant in the new world order and your influence and contribution in Argentina are negligible. Some forecasts say that the UK won’t even be a Top 10 economy by 2015. Your ambassador has practically no access to the government and is not even invited to any major government functions ore events. Therefore save some money and close the embassy. You won’t be missed.

    I wonder if they will have to shut off the 3G that is apparently all over the county too. I guess my electricity statement wasn't too far out of date. This is why I after 5 years I ended up moving back to the USA. Windy, no internet, rainy no electricity, i guess now sunny no electricity. Is it ever on?
    There was also an article in one of the Argie papers saying “don't worry we are not expecting black outs again this year” Of course they are lying.

    Black outs? Certainly not in America!

    “During the past two decades, such blackouts have increased 124 percent -- up from 41 blackouts between”

    ““It's hard to imagine how anyone could believe that -- in the United States -- we should learn to cope with blackouts,” said University of Minnesota Professor Massoud Amin, a leading expert on the U.S. electricity grid.”

    First, the escalators stopped. Then shadows crept across the city in what appeared to be an epidemic of dead light bulbs.

    As winter approaches, Uruguay has found itself in the grips of an intensifying energy crisis, brought about by a three-month drought that has crippled the country's hydroelectric power generators. The scarcity -- at a time of record high prices for imported oil -- is prompting strict conservation measures

    Almost 70% of Uruguay’s exports come from farming (beef, grains, oilseed, dairy, lamb, hides, wool, forestry) while an estimated 60% of local industry is closely linked to agriculture activities.

    Not bright enough to leave home Master Bait?

    Uruguay used to be a favoured destination for immigrants looking to start a new life in the new world
    But now, the reverse is true. Every year, thousands of people emigrate from Uruguay to start new lives abroad.
    Most of them are young and highly qualified, looking to earn higher salaries in Europe and the United States.
    So many people have left in recent years it is now estimated that up to one-fifth of all Uruguayans now live abroad.

    Nico, you have a great ability to use headlines to try to prove your point but usually the article proves the other person point. You must not a very good comprehension of the English language.

    Apparently big swaths of BA are on rolling blackouts again. I don't know how or why the populations stands for it. It happens every year and nothing is done.
    Please explain how your economy can be doing so well, according to the gov't and these posters, yet you can't build decent infrastructure? Failing electrical grid, no water or sewer in BA province, very few paved road outside of BA, etc etc etc. What is wrong with you people? I guess it is just a lazy sudaca attitude. Gross.
