    Don't worry, I am here.

    “The reduction of inflation and the resumption of growth, all this is beginning to dissipate the grey clouds that had gathered over our country,” Finance Minister Guido Mantega said at an event in Sao Paulo.

    He should complete it by urinating on the way out of the building* and handing his resignation to Rousseff. Now THAT would be good news for Brasil, because the numbers are full of holes.

    Just remind me how bad they were last year!

    (2 Brasileiro: * it means Piss Off!).

    @ 4 Dildo

    Please show my post where I have claimed to be ex the British armed forces.

    I have never been IN the forces, I WAS going to join as an officer in the REME when I first qualified as an engineer but I met the girl who turned out to be my wife, and that as they say, was that.

    I did do some lecturing on early automatic military firearms to a number of military associations and have always retained my interest AND support in our armed forces.

    The rest of your post is equally incorrect but heh, that's Dildo for you, the clown who keeps us laughing.

    Been caught by the authorities in the states yet? Girlfriend got her green card yet or are you still drying her back?

    Did you see that Yankeeboy and me were correct about the BRICS currencies falling like bricks (did you see what I did there?)?

    But to cap it all, you have not mentioned your fabulous wealth in Bitcoins lately. Ha, ha, ha.

    ChrisR, you're stubborn like a mule. But, occasionally I feel your ausence, especially when I have the chance to laugh, friend.

    Fido Dido, you are very good people, our America is very valuable to us to accept these english defamations. Independence or death! “Dom Pedro I in Grito do Ipiranga” .

    You are mistaken my friend, the mules are the ones running your country, if only you realised it.

    Oh dear, oh dear, you think Dildo “are very good people”? He thinks that I lie because he lies and thinks we are all the same so denies the truth of me living in Uruguay. He also has no idea whether I can speak Spanish or not.

    Are you aware that he is a Dutchman but hates his country? He also hates America but “lives” there on a Visitors visa so has to leave the country every three months, spend two or three days away (probably in Canada) and go back on another Visitors visa.

    His Mexican girlfriend is also an illegal in America.

    But you think he is “good people”!

    Now, now, Fido and Brasileiro, don't piss Chrissy off. He'll ruminate any offense for years and when you least expect he'll jump at you and say 'YOU WERE MEAN TO ME 30 MONTHS AGO, HOW DARE YOU.' Be nice - and don't look at him in the eye.

    Oh dear, I had thought you did have a modicum of intellect, particularly after GeoffWard2 semi-apologised for you after your rants at me as “he is not usually like this”, but now you have destroyed that illusion by siding with the lowest of all: Dog Dildo (© Simon68).

    Nice to see you counting the months for me: soon have my final cedula!

    BTW I have never known any of these idiots be able to look ANYBODY in the eye.
