    Yes, we believe every word Pepe, but are we going to get paid for the bloody expensive electricity that we are sending to The Dark Country?

    Honestly, I would have fought against the government as a Tupamaros if I had had my brain reduced to your level and wanted to be an arsehole to the real people of Uruguay.

    Now do I get a medal, I don’t want a brotherly kiss off you, I know where your tongue has been?

    You really couldn’t make this crap up.

    That would be great if only I could be convinced that it is in fact the case.

    Pepe rolled over on the pulp issue until he saw the response in the papers and then he went ahead. It would have been much better if he had gone ahead in the first place: now he just looks weak.

    This is being diverted to form a joint Argentine/Uruguayan invasion of the Falklands -right?
