    Tossers United as far as I can tell.

    BTW Argentina have STILL to pay anything towards the electricity they have used from Uruguay, also they don't pay their export invoices in a timely fashion, if at all.

    They need to escape from the cold dead chains of MercoSur and make their own free-market deals elsewhere. The current administration is too scared to 'go it alone', but with the support of the Pacific Alliance they could break free from the useless MercoSur.
    Unfortunately the ideological bullshit of the old 1970 leftists is holding it back for now.
    I hope Uruguay can one day overcome this.
    It has the potential to become the Sweden of South America, but will this happen?

    Not in my lifetime! :o)

    The main problems in Uruguay are that it is infested with stupid lazy people who really do think that the government should look after them coupled with unions which have the power reminiscent of pre-The Blessed Margaret times in the UK. AND don’t start me on the dead hand of government.

    Such a shame, this beautiful country could do so much better if it got rid of the Marxists and communists, in other words the entire government.
