    One must be careful here,
    as one could be accused of Englandising the south American mainland,

    just saying like.

    Ayre told reporters following the opening of a workshop on Anti-money laundering on Monday that “Parliament should re-sit in Guyana and get on with the business of taking this country forward.”

    so, a workshop on anti money laundering with representatives of england...
    must be a joke.

    “London is ‘money laundering capital’

    ”Britain's overseas territories open to fraud and money laundering”

    Oh look its paul with an off topic attack on “england”.

    He's not a representative of “england” he's a representative of the UK. Must you continue to embarrass yourself?

    Great Britain, Britain, United Kingdom is made up of the following
    1) ENGLAND
    3) WALES
    Now do you get it?
    The Westminster Parliament speaks for all 4 countries as far as diplomacy is concerned, although all 4 countries have devolved powers.

    11 - 3% of Argentines live on less than $2 per day.
    - 0% in the UK live on less than $2 per day.

    The British government has set a ceiling on the maximum finacial aid that a family can get from the state. This limit is set at $37,000 per year. Excluded from this limit are families with disabled children and families where the main earner had lost his job in the last 12 months.

    Cia fact book lists Argentina as having 30% of its population living in poverty compared to 14% of the UK. But theses raw statistics hide that a family of 4 would with take home pay/ benefits of less than $20,000 after deduction of taxes, state contributions and rent and local taxes to be considered poor in the UK figures. That amount of money would make them relatively wealthy in Argentina.

    It is why asylum seekers March accross 3 or 4 european countries to try and enter the UK. They know the UK is a safe, secure and comfortable place. Refugees arriving in Argentina probably want to escape as quickly as possible what with the lack of social provision and the racist attitude to people from other countries and mob rule.

    and who the fuck is comparing argentina with england, you ass?
    argentina is a mess, a 3rd world country and we know it.

    now england is the same shite, a tax haven full of poverty, and you, boludo x 1000, think it is like a paradise.

    as i wisely say, england is the only 3rd world country in western europe.

    Guyana is just your typical failed former British colony. Most of them are.
