    It will be interesting to see what happens if an oil company bids to move drilling spares on that flight. It's easy enough to justify food and vegetables (turnips?) even if some do end up feeding oil contractors. But heavy engineering spares for the oil industry would be a different matter.

    then the rest will follow,
    at this rate, CFK will have enough trouble with a claim on her own head .

    Wonder how that Uruguayan business delegation from February is going to feel when they buy something and the Falklands-flagged vessel bringing the stuff is turned away?
