    Is Argentina going to issue arrest warrants to all the captains of the jiggers/fishing boats?

    I can just see the Argentinian “ jiggers ” now, with the crew leaning over the side saying “ here fishy wishy, here fishy wishy. ” I hope they paid for their licenses in US$ because the big bad wolf of the UK may rise up alongside.

    Oh, the joy!

    51 Licences for £5.6 M, for all you illiterate and innumerate argies out there that's US$ 9.52 M or US$ 186,666 per licence!

    Now what could I buy in Argentina for US$ 187 K?

    Absolutely nothing because The Dark Country has nothing worth buying!

    Ha, ha, ha.
