    I trust that authorised and licenced fishing vessels in the South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands areas will be properly armed? That argie spy-ship didn't go there for no reason. Plans for poaching? GPMGs on deck? During WW2, the RN used to have a useful little device called the Hedgehog. It fired 24 spigot mortar bombs. The firing sequence was staggered so that all the bombs would land in a 100 foot diameter circular or elliptical area at the same time. Perfect for argie poachers. Bombs that land on the poaching vessel would have the obvious effect, whilst those that land in the water would crush or split the poacher's hull. Another “unexplained” disappearance at sea. Shame.

    Of course, Argentinian “businessmen” will be excluded (?)
