    Comparing inflation sizes, I dont think Uruguay can compare to Argentina's endowment.

    Uruguay, always so welcoming to Argentines. A beautiful country too.

    Well its doesn't do to upset your aggressive bullying slightly deranged neighbour. An awkward line must be tread. As numerous Uruguayans have posted on here, they don't have the Royal Navy to fight their corner.

    Why would we want to fight our brothers? On the contrary to you lot, we sort our differences by talking and finding solutions, not killing eachothers kids...

    I think you will find it was the argies that sent their kids to war, as opposed to trained professional soldiers. Uruguay is safe so long as it tows the line, the minute they elect a leader with independent thought and objectivity they will be in trouble, just like Paraguay.

    No, the Arg junta didn't send their kids to war, they did as your leaders do when they run out of pro assassins and sent other people's kids instead...

    These measures are designed to help the tourism sector and will increase the tax burden of the people by the exact amount that we give away to that industry in subsidising out malevolent big sister across the Plate.

    I happen to pay tax in Uruguay, but given your situation where you work abroad and have subsidised training from the western world, a world you despise by your own admission, I doubt that YOU pay tax here.

    AND, lets not have this nonsense about killing kids.

    Then bloody stop bashing Argentina for the sake of bashing her!

    As for our home soil, well Chris, I can assure you you wont be paying their taxes, and we are in a far worse position than discussing a possible tax increase, should the Arg tourists stay away. That I can assure you as well...

    Which bit of “I happen to pay tax in Uruguay” do you not understand? I do not pay earned income as I am retired but ALL my money is invested in Uruguay and I pay tax on ALL my income. Tax is tax and it gives me the right to say what I want about the fiscal proberty of UYU.

    There comes a point in any transaction when it becomes uneconomical to transact. Given that the goverment already has more toilet paper and does not want any more (because AG will not honour their own currency) it strikes me as ludicrous to make such far reaching 'accomodations'.

    Anyway, answer the question: DO YOU PAY TAX IN URUGUAY, YES OR NO?

    With “their taxes” I meant the Argentines. Relax, nobody is questioning your contribution, Chris :)
    Myself, I have no income to pay taxes of, as I study in Denmark, but before I came here I did, and will most certainly do when I return. Although I got to admit, off-shorers and seamen aren't that heavily taxed, for some obvious reasons...

    Activity of the type seen today by the Spanish Navy is a scandalous act of aggression which is illegal, imprudent, unprofessional and irresponsible on the part of whoever authorised it. This action is in breach of the obligations which NATO allies and EU partners owe each other.

    “The United Kingdom Government will no doubt respond in a manner which appropriately reflects the seriousness of this matter and the undoubted British sovereignty, jurisdiction and control of these waters as if this invasion of territorial sea had occurred off the coast of the United Kingdom
    [we said it once, we will say it again, ]
    Until they are physically stopped they will push and push,
    And the more you let them,, the more advantage they will take,
    Until the British government says, enough is enough,
    The next intrusion will be boarded apprehended, impounded, or Sunk.

    “SPANISH NAVY INCURSION: ”? No incursion. Only an entry into territory that belongs to Spain.
    I love that way this is going.

    Exactly. President Mujica has indicated that Uruguay does not possess the military means to resist Argentine aggression, so we cannot antagonise them. Former president Vázquez was more confrontational and actually asked the US for help.
