    so ramblers worldwide, uh?
    lol
    and the islets plus bolivia...what a combination...

    now, for you ignorant bennys, the rally is basically an argentinian competition, it barely touches chile and bolivia.
    most of its route, and its start and finish are on argentinian soil, of course.
    do you have something similar in the islets?
    lol

    Pauly you will soon be able to learn about the Falkland Islands. The 'An Island Parish ' programme will be transmitted by the Beeb. You will be able to take the Mickey out of that. Your foul mouthed rants just make you sound like something found in the toilet.

    No, POLLY is pissed off that nobody spends that sort of money in BsAs anymore:

    NO food worth eating in the hotels;

    NO hotels worth going to;

    Motochorros chasing you everywhere just for your mochilla;

    BIG holes in the pavements (drain covers stolen for metal price);

    At least SOME of the women are good looking.

    Ha, ha, ha, ha.

    The Falkland Islanders have done a great job looking after the environment and are now reaping the rewards. Shame the same cannot be said of the Galápagos Islands which have been ruined by pollution and weak stewardship.

    have you ever been to the islets?
    me neither.
    now, according to a beautiful english girl who deserves my complete confidence, it is a piece of shite (her words, not mine).

    they do not even have a decent 5 star hotel.
    just bed and breakfast and some sort of 1/2 star hostels...yuck.
    they do not deserve the visit of someone as distinguished as me.

    @1, 10. 'Argie soil'? You mean argie nightsoil. The Falklands know about argie nightsoil. Curious thing. Argies wanted to present themselves as 'liberators'. So they filled Falklands baths, toilets, furniture, beds with argie 'nightsoil'. Why do Falkland Islanders and Brits think of argies as shit? Ever heard of 'modesty'? Caught short? Run into the Post Office and shit on the floor. How terribly civilised! If there is shite, who put it there? Wouldn't that be you scum?

    Paulie- and why should the Irish beating England at Rugby be bad news in the Falklands?
    You thick little Arse- on the Islands there are Welsh -Scottish-Irish and even English rugby supporters.- all national teams are part of the 6 nations with France and Italy - you are so thick that you do not realise that in European Rugby there is no such think as a UK or GB team!
    You probably cannot even understand that the Irish team is indeed Irish- the whole of the island - as it comprises players from both Northern Ireland and the Irish republic.
    Poor little ignorant chap. Several Irish flags flying around Stanley this afternoon - that does not mean we are not British - but its to much for your little brain to understand!

    What does a Rugby match between England and Ireland have to do with the Falklsnds????

    Oh, right - you were reaching desperately for something negative and anti-Brit.

    “you are so thick that you do not realise that in European Rugby there is no such think as a UK or GB team!”
    no you idiot. there is not a gb team playing in the 6 nations.
    now, what the fuck are the lions, if not a british + irish team, eh?
    and yes, they have played in europe, against Los Pumas.
    25-25, not that bad for a 3rd world country, eh?

    “You probably cannot even understand that the Irish team is indeed Irish- the whole of the island - as it comprises players from both Northern Ireland and the Irish republic”
    wow. great news, you genius...LOL
    like in the real life, they are 1 island, 1 nation, you twat.
    it is you who think the opposite.

    anyway, what can you know about rugby?
    how many teams do you have in the islet?

    In rugby yes, in football NO.
    In real life they are two separate countries with a border running between them.
    If you don't believe then check the Irish govt.website.
    28 counties and 3 cities*; Carlow, Cavan, Clare, Cork, Cork*, Donegal, Dublin*, Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown, Fingal, Galway, Galway*, Kerry, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Leitrim, Limerick, Longford, Louth, Mayo, Meath, Monaghan, Offaly, Roscommon, Sligo, South Dublin, Tipperary, Waterford, Westmeath, Wexford, Wicklow.
    All under the sovereign control of the govt. of the Republic of Ireland.
    I don't see Antrim; Armagh; Down; Fermanagh; Londonderry; and Tyrone.in this list.
    The Irish government agreed to drop its territorial claim to Northern Ireland, previously described in articles 2 and 3 of the Constitution of Ireland.
    What more proof do you need ?

    Pauline, for a start Islander1 was talking about 6 nations, secondly, the B & I lions historically have played southern hemisphere nations as part of a tour every 4 years.
    They have on 2 occasions I remember played France and The Rest of Europe '89 & '90 as part of Bicentennial celebrations and as a charity match. So officially they do not play as part of the European Rugby calendar i.e. The 6 Nations, they may well have played in Europe, but that is not the meaning of Islanders words. Your argument is pedantic and like usual, you have twisted semantics to fuel a puerile argument.

    @45 Ummmm ok Piggy Pauly, as you know we don't have any of that here..... and so fucking what? I think the Malvina hotel might be a four star.... at a push, but it's good enough. You could visit Sea Lion Island, the battlefields of '82, the British and Argentine war memorials and graves, Volunteers Point if you want to see King Penguins or various other places if you like bird watching. Hell you could even go to the museum, but like you mentioned before it's not to the standard of the Louvre, but you have never been to the Louvre so not sure how you would compare the two.

    The thing is, you are to poor to come here, let alone leave the slum you live in, and even if you did come here, you would be an absolute wanker for the duration of your stay.
