    Not for much longer if Suarez and his moronic, idle bunch of bastards keep going this way.

    Just have a look for yourselves to see how many ships are backed up:
    http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais and chose square 105.

    No ships at all at Rosario!

    If they keep going like this all the other soy exporting countries are going to have better prices for their beans and (hopefully) by the time this bunch of cnuts get themselves sorted out the price will have collapsed.

    It couldn't happen to a better bunch of pillocks.

    @1 I'm utterly convinced that Argentinians don't know how to make any money and the concept of them not-unloading or not-loading pseudo-british vessels is just utterly meaningless.

    We've all got trade unions that are a pain in the rear. How CFK deals with this will be the critical test.

    If Argentina had an army it would have been sent in by now. But as the Kircheners have destroyed it I suppose it will be FatBoy's La Campora who will deal with the matter 'on the quiet'.

    @7 The more I read about Fat-Nestor's Hitler Youth the worse it gets.

    Is it all about the conflict now going on between Moyano and CFK?

    @9 I think it's more to do with culturally they don't like doing any work.
