    Well, the mad house that is Brasils government finance operations is complete with this twaddle.

    Who OWNS the company (the government), WHO sets the tariff for the electricity (DITTO), WHO has to pay for this tax: the people who use the electricity, including producers and exporters.

    BANG, left foot shot off, BANG, right foot shot off.

    Absolutely bonkers these ideas, particularly the fact that oil and gas (Petrobras) are hamstrung by Dilma on their pricing regime.

    Is there nobody who can talk to Dilma about finance other than the idiot Mantega?

    Brasleiro, nevermind the idiot #1. it thinks it's an “expert” on a region he doesn't know except through the web. It's not capable of doing some education.

    @3 Fido Dildo

    And this from a whacky finance expert himself a Dutchman who now HAS to live in the USA and says he collects BitCoins! Ha, ha, ha.

    Bet you are bust now this crap has fallen like a brick in value. Not answering me on that at all are you Dildo (excellent name for you BTW).

    At lease I LIVE in Uruguay and support the country with my investment money.

    @2 Brasileiro

    My friend, you are letting your immense love of your country blind you to the inability of the finance arm of your government to run a piss-up in a brewery.

    Are you saying that this proposal to tax ALL the energy 10% is correct?

    When I know your answer I can post more accurately to answer you.

    Kind regards.

    # 1 - You seem angry that Brazil doesn't have to invade countries in the Middle East to secure it's energy supply. Stop worrying about Brazil and take care of your own country's problems.

    Were you born completly stupid or did you work at it, I suspect the latter.

    For a start my country is now Uruguay.

    And my post was designed to illustrate how the incompetence of Mantega is pervading all levels of personal taxation.

    AH! I see where I have gone wrong: you don't pay taxes do you? I bet you are a commie skiver like one or two others who regularly miss the point or just spout bollocks. Yes, that's it.

    You sound more like a Brit Chrissie, didn't know you were from our lost Província Cisplatina. Doesn't sound much like you how Angra I and II work and how electricity is distributed in in the state of Rio de Janeiro. Don't worry though, we can always export a little bit of energy to Urugugay, we enjoy having lights on when we go on vacations. For a country where half the population left it for another country, it sounds a little strange for you talk about Brazil's economy.

    He's no Uruguayo, he's a Brit expat dying to become an Uruguayo.

    He even disqualifies the real Uruguayos.

    Maybe he thinks it's his country now. Literally.

    I take that “Provincia Cisplatina” with a smile.

    Banda Oriental, Provincia thi-or-that, Uruguay...
    No matter what, this will always be the land of the charrúas.

    @7 Brazillian

    That took you long enough to figure out: why didn't you just ask me, I at least would have told you the truth.

    So, as you claim to be from Uruguay (HA, HA, HA) the final sentance also applies to you.

    No, I think not. You are an argie living outside of the country like all the other moaners and groaners.

    Gotcha at last.

    I understand that you'd love to project your insecurities on me. As a Brit living outside of his country, surely it affects your well-being, just have a look at your constant rambles.

    If it makes you feel better, place me wherever you feel you need.
