    No Money Pepe is like Eric out of the Morecombe and Wise comedy double act.

    Ernie was playing a piano as if the music was perfect (big smiles on his face) when in reality it was just a jumble of notes. Eric said “I thought that was supposed to be a classic piece, what happened”?

    Nothing says Ernie, all the notes are there, just not in the right order”!

    Just like No Money Pepe's 'words of wisdom'. Idiota.

    Very soon the biggest drag on Uruguay will be gone, pity La Tronca won't go with him (unless she loses as well).

    Can't wait.

    Why did Argentina not invest in this? Surely that would have made sense?
    Cristina keeps on saying they have plenty of dosh, (enough to move the capital?).
    Only 50km from Buenos Aires?
    Bit sickening to watch it, I expect.

    It's times like this that I sincerely like Pepe giving Cristina “the finger” despite him being a communist.

    @ Chicureo
    Arauco must like Pepe at times like this too. He set up a special tax-free zone around the mill to sweeten the deal - an old commie but soft for hard currency.

    As long as no swans die, I think it's great.
