    As long as the argies can be deterred from poaching in FI waters everything will be alright.

    They have pants now?

    (descamisado, (Spanish: “shirtless one”), in Argentine history, during the regime of Juan Perón (ruled 1946–55, 1973–74), any of the impoverished and underprivileged Argentine workers who were Perón’s chief supporters.

    Imagine, in another 50 years they might even have a full set of clothes!
