    oh thats a wonderful name for beauty salon, and if you build it next to a cement factory you may attract Cristina as a patron. Ensure you get collagen and botox licensed :-)

    Aren't Blackfish going to be taken to court for this? When are all these court cases against oil companies going to take place. After all Argentina always keeps to its word. Doesn't it?

    Suppose that in the building where you live, suddenly 5 armed immigrant families, seize 5 departments. It is logical to make a vote years later, the descendants of those families,to “determine if they own” or to express their opinion about legitimate owners, whether or not they have rights on the properties?

    @ claudio_laplata #7

    Repeating the exact same comment on multiple articles doesn't mean you're right mate.
    Your analogy is dead wrong...unless your '5 armed immigrant families' were the Argentinian invaders in 1982.

    These are the real owners of the Falklands, this is why the British Government is so involved in maintaining British interests on the islands.
    capitalism rules the world...and these people own the real estate called The Falklands.. not the handful of souls who live on the island.These capitalists run the goverments all round the world and if there was nothing for them in the Falklands the British government would have by now negotiated with the Argentines. It is the same with Gibraltar all the
    off shores accounts and investments all run by the people who really own the world.
