    Democracy at work.
    Don't like what the UK is doing complain about and get enough support 'they' may alter it.

    The morons in charge of the UK couldn't run a piss-up in a brewery and the Passport Office has been an example of this for more than four years.

    Teresa May has lost the plot here and needs to get off her backside and see for herself what a disaster this outfit is.

    At least those attending the meeting and pointing out the deficiencies won't be labelled “traitor's to the Motherland”, so liked by TMBOA et al.

    I think if their biggest concern is the efficiency of the passport office then they don't have a right lot to be grumbling about, they could have a slice of daily Argentine life if they prefer or 26% unemployment in Spain!

    As if the UK are ever going to allow the Cayman Islands to print and issue British Passports.....
    What part of British passport ....don't you understand.
    and...what part of British Overseas Territory don't you understand....
    Start letting them conduct their own affairs and it would be...British Passports for sale to highest bidder.....
    Deposit a few million in our offshore accounts and get a free British passport....

    “meeting in Cayman has attendees from Anguilla, Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Falkland Islands, Gibraltar and Montserrat.”

    = a bunch of tax havens and smugglers´s paradises.
    who the fuck cares?

    watching the faces of pigardo and the other two of the picture, you realize these people from the british colonies have some kind of genetic problem

    I think you care very deeply. Why else are you here? You seem very interested in British affairs.

    I hope you enjoy learning about democracy and good governance while you are here.

    I presume you would know all about the Mafia being a Latam.
    So, the BOT leaders do contract killings, extortion, peddle drugs worldwide and wide scale prostitution . Your evidence for this is?
    Why does that remind me of South American regimes !

    @7 Yes why don't you remind us of Argentina and S pain's position in the Global Corruption Index?

    the BOTs should insist that the other carrier be assigned to BOC duties,
    British Overseas Carrier,

    and keep those nasty argies in their kennels..

    “you realize these people from the british colonies have some kind of genetic problem”

    Ahh, that would be the problem of not being in debt, looking after their people well, and not contaminating ecological areas.

    Argentina needs these 'problems.'

    @7
    “This BOT leaders are like a mafia or worse”

    But still way below the league of CFK, Boudou and they still haven't got bad enough to throw nuns out of aircraft like Argentina.

    So, Pollo McSquealeron is being blatantly racist now?
    “people from the british colonies have some kind of genetic problem”
    Good move Polly, that will persuade a lot of people in your so-called arguements. Idiota!

    As for that other fool:
    It has become increasingly obvious that ‘Aussiesunshine is no more than a troll in a similar vein as Mendo-idiot/Keith Pork and others, and is probably the same poster.
    This person has nothing of value to contribute.
    This fool should be ignored or told to F off.
    Kind regards,

    It has become increasingly obvious that ‘Aussiesunshinee' is no more than a stupid troll in a similar vein as Mendo-idiot/Keith Pork and others, and is probably the same poster.
    This person has nothing of value to contribute. This idiot betrays the worst form of ignorance, the refusal to even try to understand another point of view, or to accept that others may have a higher knowledge of a given subject. Other than that, ASS, just tries to goad genuine posters.

    This fool should be ignored or told to F off.

    Look forward to some good debates/knowledge sharing in the future,

    @23 Half of the debt has been paid off but at least we're not regarded as a 'pariah state' by international money lenders. As you can't reference your first statement it is 'worthless.' Lol.

    Where do you get this information from ? I googled the question and came up with the country index ww.worldaudit.org/corruption.htm
    with the following. Least corrupt at the top.
    Corruption Rank 2013 Democracy Rank 2013
    New Zealand 1 5
    Denmark 1 1
    Finland 3 3
    Sweden 3 1
    Singapore 5 71
    Norway 5 4
    Switzerland 7 6
    Netherlands 8 7
    Australia 9 9
    Canada 9 10
    Germany 11 10
    United Kingdom 12 13

    Do you have a personal Paul list compiled by yourself or have you just misread the list believing a higher score is best ?
