    There you go then. So much for European solidarity. I predict Total will come to regret it.

    TOTAL simply doesn't want to get illegally expropriated as per YPF. I wouldn't be surprised if neo-YPF gets some of its concessions though OR TOTAL will be having to deliver dollars in Swiss numbered accounts to KFC's cronies.

    It reminds me of that fantastic movie, “Animal House” with James Belushi. The scene where the pledge is trying to get in to a Frat House. He's bent over and they are thrashing his backside, after each blow, he says, “Please sir, may I have another.” Hilarious!

    @2 - 'Total' could easily come to regret it. I look forward to the Argentinian asset freezing inside the EU if she tries to nationalise another European company.

    It all depends how this works out for her. If she gets away with it, then you can reasonably assume she will do it again.

    If CFK can piss of Spain as much as she did, you can bet your bottom dollar she wouldn't think twice on doing it to France.
