    first thing they have to do is to expel those sons of a bitch of botnia who are contaminating our wonderful rio uruguay.

    Why do you ALWAYS have to lie about things?

    The testing regime for the mills has been shown to work and they are presently THE CLEANEST MILLS IN THE WORLD.

    Contrast that with the filthy river just opposite and the pictures of the effluent foaming on the surface, the complaints from the people living near it that they become unwell and the pathetic response from Gollum when he says that TDC will not publish the tests results.

    I bet they won't and we all know why.
