    They will be arrested as soon as they set foot on Argentine soil, not much danger of that I think!

    We thinks when the drilling starts, the Falkland's may need more patrol ships and special troops to guard these rigs..

    But but but where does it mention Malvinas? English squatters go home! You are nothing but rubbish colonialists and pirates. You don't belong in South America!

    Sorry but I told Sussie, Marcos and Think that I'd cover for them while they went to a pot bashing rally to demonstrate about the shortage of loo paper.

    Chuckle chuckle

    It doesn't mention Narnia or Middle Earth either - I don't think (does Think?) that the UN is concerned with fantasy locations.

    They must be building some huge prisons if they are going to arrest every single person who has worked for or in the Islands Oil industry-they must have a huge bureaucracy just to issue the arrest warrants.

    I take it with no reference whatsoever to sovereignty disputes?
