Falklands confused over Ushuaia decision to turn away cruise vessels

Full article 97 comments

The Falkland Islands government and tourist industry admit to being confused and thus unable to comment in any great detail on the recent decision, apparently, by the Argentine provincial Government of Tierra del Fuego, turning away from Ushuaia two British flagged cruise ships earlier this week.

    Yes, guys, that's right. I guess in Argentina people go up to people, punch them in the face for a couple of weeks, then say “hey, let's be friends!”. Are you mental? If you want the islands to be Argentine by sovereignty you need to start acting like a place they want to be associated with and not a belligerent bully.

    How can it be confusing?
    Gaucho Rivero law gives the government the duty, right or possibility, call it how you like, to deny entry to the ports to any ship of British or convenience flag linked to the exploting of natural resources on the islands.
    Now this whole mess started because Fabiana considered tourism to be a natural resource. As in Argentina tourism is not defined as one or the other, then it was up to her interpretation. She acted under law.
    So because of this, we the Chamber of Tourism and also the Chamber of Commerce are taking the case to court so Justice rule wheter tourism is or not a natural resource.

    George 'The Cat' Galloway is a well known looney leftwing nutter who works for such unbiased broadcasters such as Irans Press TV and bangs this particular drum whenever he gets the chance.
    He was doing it again last night on Andrew Neils This Week and was well and truly shown up as an out of touch lightweight by not only Michael
    'Spanish' Portillo but also by Alan Johnson who should have been agreeing with him.

    I wonder whether Galloway uses the same weed as Roger Waters who asked the Chilean interviewer ' the islanders are British ,they have a point of view don't they'? His Argentine ticket sales are going well. If I were him I would forget about doing a tour of the UK or the Falklands for a while.

    @17 Well, you know already that I don't speak spanish, and because of this I'm not poor. Putting this aside, I don't understand the obsession with FIslanders not flying to Saffaland. Cape town is closer than Ascension Island.

    Place: Cape town, Africa (Nice Place)
    Main Airline: South African Airlines (good)
    Flight Cost: ~£1000
    Things to do: Have coffee, go see tigers and things, hang at the beach, have a nice time.

    Place: Buenes Aires, South America (Not so nice)
    Main Airline: Argentinian Plummet Airlines (V. Bad)
    Flight Cost: 0.86p (Subsidized to kill off lan flight)
    Things to do: Get mugged, Look at jewish people who like Peron-Hitler, Get stabbed, Get pushed under a train if you're brown (not white).

    So, if I was the FIG I'd be lobbying for South African airlines to do a couple of flights and give you all a nice break in Africa looking at gazelles and stuff.

    Lots of goodies to come. Argieland needs to negotiate with FIG over air links. What's that? FIG doesn't exist? No negotiations then. Argieland denies docking facilities to British (and related) - flagged vessels? British government “advises” cruise lines not to dock in argieland. Official policy. No consular assistance available in argie ports. Cruise passengers advised to leave cruise vessels at Montevideo or Punta Arenas and travel to argieland overland if they really want to visit a cess-pit. Do NOT use the train. British government to agree with LAN that government will fund additional fuel costs so that LAN flight can avoid argie airspace. LAN encouraged to empty sewage tank in argie airspace. British companies encouraged to source imports in countries other than argieland. EU MEPs requested not to include British money in aid to argieland. Advised that use of any British money will result in reduction in British contributions. EU MEPs requested to cancel all aid to argieland and ban imports from argieland. EU MEPs also requested to end negotiations on proposed EU/Mercosur trade agreement.

    I felt the need to share this gem of a fairy tale I found on RT:

    “It seems that most here are too young to remember the war, or even the commonly reported facts leading up to it. It also seems that the only things taught about it since is a one eyed propaganda story.

    Here is what even the BBC would talk openly and honestly about at the time.

    Only five extended families lived there before and during the war. They were sheep farmers and because of the remote position, their mutton and wool was far too expensive to pick up. England organised ships to pick up the products, in effect subsidising the Falklanders unproductive lifestyle farms.

    No one wanted the pathetic chunk of dirt. The Iron Lady tried to give it to Argentina. Argentina refused. A year later Argentina believed a small propaganda coup was possible by annexing them peacefully and claiming victory over England as England would not defend it as they wanted to be rid of the place.

    The Iron Lady desperately wanted a propaganda coup herself, and beating Argentina in a spat war was the perfect opportunity, believing that no or few losses would result. They even sent a Royal to heighten the propaganda frenzy. They lost two warships including a troop carrier filled with troops. It was only a matter of luck that the Royal was not onboard. They immediately withdrew the Royal.

    England sent more ships. Only possible because the Commonwealth sent spare ships to patrol the waters the English ships patrolled.

    Through force of numbers, England pushed the tiny number of Argentinian forces out.

    At the time there was a lot of support on the Falklands for Argentinian rule. That support has continued for the following decades. Only recently, after a large number of English military has been stationed there has the ”opinion polls“ changed. Interesting since the Military now outnumber the tiny number of farmers”.

    Isn't it just precious ? All that is missing is “and they all lived happy ever after”.

    He is going to be bolloxed in Argentina :-)))))

    In 2009 he abandoned a stage at the Coachella Festival in California because of the smell of cooking meat.

    Morrissey has been vegetarian since he was 11 years old. He has explained his vegetarianism by saying “If you love animals, obviously it doesn't make sense to hurt them.”[101] Morrissey is an advocate for animal rights and a supporter of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). In recognition of his support, PETA honoured him with the Linda McCartney Memorial Award at their 25th Anniversary Gala on 10 September 2005.[102]

    In January 2006, Morrissey attracted criticism when he stated that he accepts the motives behind the militant tactics of the Animal Rights Militia, saying “I understand why fur-farmers and so-called laboratory scientists are repaid with violence—it is because they deal in violence themselves and it's the only language they understand.”[103]

    Morrissey has criticised people who are involved in the promotion of eating meat,

    I did not know anything about Morrisey so I looked him up in Wilkipedia.
    He seems a rather unsavoury character from what I read, I then listened to a video on youtube of him singing “Moon River” The comments on his rendition were glowing. After 30 seconds I realised that he was singing “off key” in parts of the song. Why in heaven's name does anyone think his pronouncements are of tremendous importance. Of course he is going to say what he did in front of an audience in Argentina. He would have been lynched if he had said otherwise. His opinion is worth no more or less than any other person on this forum. Now, if it had been Nelson Mandela............

    @39 Clearly you don't understand what irony is then. I think you should look back at your definitions for bigotry and racist, as I am clearly neither.

    Let me spell it out to you, in easy words. Peron was a big fan of Hitler, and most of his ideologies came from N. Bonaparte, Hitler and Mussolini. They all believe that they are a part of a supreme master race. Kind of like the Ashkenazi and Sephardi Jews believe that 'Goyim' are donkeys that only exist for their pleasure and slavery. So, we have the Jews thinking that they're a master race, we have the Argentinians thinking they're a master race, etcetera etcetera. The irony is that Hitler wanted to exterminate all the jews, and now argentinian jews are following his ideology, rebranded as peronism.

    So, that's irony. It's not racism, it's not bigotry it's just basic irony.

    Viva la Revolution!

    No one answered my question, are there any flagged Argentine vessels, (Apart from the Belgrano, if that doen't get a response, nothing will). Is the shipping all one way? what? if any merchant fleet does Argentinia have. After all if docking right to Britsh flagged or British Commenwealth flagged ships are denied. The it seems only reasonable to apply the same to Argentine vessels in any British or Commonwealth flagged port. I know, I know! tit for tat, lowering yourself to their standards, two wrongs don't make a right, blind leading the blind, do as I say not what I do, etc, etc. All pretty bloody childish realy.

    To reach Stanley on schedule she would have to have steamed at 30knots through 36ft seas! Either the ship would have shook to bits - passengers mutinied - or if neither happened the Captain would have been sacked when his Accountants got the fuel bill.

    So in response I told her that if a key opens lots of locks, then it's a master key. But if a lock is opened by lots of keys, then it's a shitty lock.

    regardless of whether they were in succesful bands or not, they are the same as the rest of us and have an opinion. because they are or have been famous, just means that their opinions are publicised. Doesnt mean they are right or wrong!

    However it is sad that the RG's put so much weight on it! I personally think even if the above list of artists put on a “pro malvina concert”, the only place they would get a good audience would be in RGland. So put them into actual practise and i think you would be able to see is how irrelevant they are to the arguement.

    @61 We can all be sure that Garry's support is not far away. It's a well established fact that along with their love of mullets, Argentinian men have interests in the 'younger female'. This fascination of theirs is regularly focussed on when trolling them in other forums. Mr. Glitter would fit in there.

    I dont know them, but if they come here and put 2 days before a show all day on TV an easy verse of their song that people can sing (ex ”you are beautiful, you are beautiful, you are me, nara nanna -the rest I dont remember neither understand) the generous people of this country will go to their shows and they will make a lot of money!!

    you islanders, must start thinking in Argentina as your future country, is a matter of time, do all you people in Malvinas really think Uk likes you?, what Uk want are the natural resources, actually we the Argentinians don t like islanders from Malvinas either, what we want are the islands not all the garbage, the garbage must come back to Uk, next war we will beat Uk, nobody in ghis world wants to be Uk friend anymore and after we retake the islands we will deport all islanders for OCUPAS, all you people are OCUPAS.
    then enjoy the islands for a couple more years, after that I hope the Argentinian government deport and send back to uk all you islanders, cos we don t like KELPERS or second category Uk. again second cayegory mean GARBAGE .
    My best wishes Kelpers:Garbage

    The Argies love to dream, they even dream up has-beens to support them,
    And a few washed up indocronoughts thrown in for the fun,
    The fact is, they have more chance of mass 40 million suicides, that they have of ever getting the British Falklands, so dream on dreamers lol.

    Are you argentinians even capable of original thought? You can't even get the vocabulary right when you accuse people of piracy.

    The way pepegalleta, Kipling , Marcos Alejandro and Think, keep repeating the same old drivel, must be as a result of OVER indoctrination as a child and as they can no longer make sense or write about anything else, they are probably now all inmates in the same lunatic asylum.

    How is “ Look at jewish people who like Peron-Hitler” anti- Semitic ?
    I take it as, like turkeys voting for Christmas, because Argentina is strange twisted place
    Or is this just more Argentinian intimidation ?

    Redcoat I am Jewish and I did not get much antisemitic issues , I played rugby in Argentina and there is where you can find a lot anti jewish people, but I was a big guy at that time and very strong,
    Peron brought to Argentina a lot of nazis but he never did anything against jewish people and remember Israel helped a lot the Argentinian de facto government in 82.
    Argentina has a lot jewish people.
    anti jewish people are all over the world not only in Argentina, I am in US and here there is a lot nazis too

    So his remark wasn't anti-Semitic was it and as Peron had brought nazis to Argentina, just because they didn't do anything to the Jews, as they had done in Germany, it could have been naive of them to think it couldn't change.
    I suggest you apologise to GreekYoghurt.

    Peron brought to Argentina Naziz like Brasil, Paraguay, Chile, Bolivia, then you have to talk about almost all south america.
    Plus Argentina is the number 3 larger jewish population in the world

    Well adk here in US , if you want to be a president you need the latino voto, 18%!latino citizens and mostly soanish speaken. Now is the spanish important or not, Why in Malvinas school are teaching spanish?, the islandas are in south atlantic where almost all states the spanish is the lenguage, what kind of neighbours are or want to be, it doesn t matter what happen.
    I don t think is a bad idea to the islanders to learn how speak spanish as a second lenguage do you?
    About the spanish again, in the US government every year there is more latino Senators, delegates, plus latinos in the presidential cabinet, that is why republicans wants to deport and limetd the avility to latinos to drive, to work, ilegal people here is facen a very bad time, if you read and wants I recomended to you to read about what is happening in Arizona, the goverbment of Arizona is like the nazi regiment, horrible, the only difference is that are not gas chambers. ilegals kids doesn t have the right to go to school, not state healtcare, plus a real persucution, the police has the right to stop you if he think you are ilegal, perhaps, most of the ilegal inmigration comes from Mexico and are really white, that is the motive to stop this people and then deport the poir guy, but there is a lot mire, read about it.

    @92 pepegalleta
    You answer your own dilemma and don’t seem to be aware of it or don’t care:

    “US government every year there is more latino Senators, delegates, plus latinos in the presidential cabinet, that is why republicans wants to deport and limetd the avility to latinos to drive, to work”…….
    “ilegals kids doesn t have the right to go to school, not state healtcare, plus a real persucution, the police has the right to stop you if he think you are ilegal, perhaps, most of the ilegal inmigration comes from Mexico and are really white, that is the motive to stop this people and then deport the poir guy, but there is a lot mire, read about it.”

    The poor guys? They shouldn’t be trying to get into the USA, your instinct is to take over everywhere, of course illegals have NO rights in the USA, except to go back to where they came from and sort their own country out so they don’t want to leave.

    Redcoat you need to get more information about Arizona and Alabama new laws anti inmigration, I become American citizen ling time ago just to don t get any problems in the near future, but what this republicans are doing here is like Hitler did, persucution is an anacronismo, all the inmigration or most of those people come here just to works in jobs that nobody want to do here, there are several studys about the relevance of the ilegal inmigration.

    @94 pepegalleta

    I don't need any familiarisation on immigration issues, I see with my own eyes what happens, firstly you allow or invite unskilled people into the country to do those jobs we find difficult to fill, only to find that many are not very good at them, always looking for ways to avoid doing them properly. Bad enough but it gets worse, as these people have lots of children, many of which don’t do well at school, but will not do those same types of jobs and just want to live on benefits or either turn to crime/drugs, or want to change society into that, which caused their parents to come to the country in the first place.
    I’ve gone politically from leftish to right, because you can lead someone drink but you cannot make them drink it.
    OK that’s their choice, BUT no benefits, (it’s not what they are for) or anything else, I’m not paying to keep them. If they commit any crime it’s a one way ticket to where their parents came from.
    So I can completely understand Arizona and Alabama etc. attitudes.

    So no doubt we are ideologically apposed.

    Redcoat yes we thinj different about it, but mostly of ilegal people here are not criminals, but under Arizona and Alabama ilegals are criminals but they are not, don t forget that US had been build with inmigrants, what is the difference now?, if all ilegal people stop working here US will be in default soon, it is impossible to run US with out ilegal people.

    You make a very good point, this is the USA's dilemma, let more in to continue with one generation of cheap labour and land up like Mexico, or stop them coming and do away with the false American dream.
    America initially wanted the immigrants as comsumers but they didn't close the door when they should have because of having to get elected and because people always want more. They have created their own downfall.
