    @1 Idiot child!

    ¡Cara de c--o! Have you not noticed that the Falkland Islands territory with NO oil(yet) is already the most prosperous country in South America(per head of population) and has no (present) need for income from oil. And all the risk is carried by the prospecting oil companies NOT by the people of the archipelago.

    Also, it seems to me that my fellow citizens of the islands are far more practical than you think. They are not rubbing their hands in glee YET at the thought of all that potential income - they are very aware of the prevailing market conditions.

    So keep your childish opinions to yourself!

    PenguinCedron is being driven insane with jealousy due to the imminent collapse of Argentina combined with his massive envy of those he claims to despise. The British.
    Funny that when he posts on The Guardian (CIF) pages, he tries so hard to impress, yet his inate frustrations slip through.
    Trés amusing....!

    Wasn't that the object of the exercise?

    And once the dross of little producers is out of the way, guess what? Back to U$D 100+ per barrel.
