    lets see:
    “ The owner of services companies reported a pre-tax profit of GBP3.9 million for the year to end-March”

    lets see:
    so a pre tax profit of gbp 3.9 million.
    that would be...gbp 2 million?
    very impressive.
    anyway the most interesting part is “owner of services companies”.
    the common, ordinary inhabitant of the islets, of course, does not participate of that huuuuuuge profit, no?

    “blablabla...buoyed by a record squid catch, higher demand for corporate rented houses, hire vehicles agency services and construction work, and increased activity due to the spring 2015 drilling programme.”

    corporate rented houses?
    construction work?
    like this?

    “Falkland Islands Holdings isn't paying a dividend as it reinvests its earnings and cash to accelerate the growth of the business.”
    yeah, right...LOL x 1 Million.

    bunch of thieves and losers.

    Master Cedron

    What's your problem - they made a 10% profit and are reinvesting it - sounds all good to me.

    So what have they stolen and what have they lost ?

    In BA the population off the “villas” has increased by 70% since 2010 - welcome to paradise Argentina

    @1. You know roughly the same amount about company finance and operations as you do about the oil industry. That is to say, ZILCH. But what point in telling you to shut your face and mind your own business? There you are, paid by La Campora or direct by Kirchnerists, part time contracted to make hate-inspired comments against people you've never met and countries you have no chance of being admitted to. I reckon that if we tied your MP 'identity' to the name on your passport, you'd be classified as an 'undesirable alien' in many countries. Possibly a potential terrorist in some places.

    You clearly know nothing about investment, risk, profit making and general business endeavours. So what qualifies you to make such inane comments about a territory about which you know nothing either? ¡que boludo!
    You have no qualifications at all to be on the Falklands Section of mercopress and all you do is make a fool of yourself.

    excellent link.

    now, these imbeciles conqueror and gordo tirapedos, are not only a pair of twats, but also a pair of monoglot twats.
    most of the times they dont even understand english.

    anyhow, lets try with this:
    The Sunday Times Britain's Secret Slaves.

    and this:

    the key question is why the fuck the corrupt government of the stinky colony allows these bastards to fish in “their” coasts.

    as far as the whole world knows, they do not fish in any other country / colony / territory of south america.

    only in the islets.

    no doubts these corrupt bennys are accomplices of these bastards.

    @6 cara de orto podrido

    Neither of the links you provide have anything to do with the business endeavours of companies or individuals in the Falkland Islands. The first concerns people smuggling in Europe and the second concerns crews of other of vessels licensed to fish in the South Atlantic. Neither Britain nor the Falkland Islands - two separate political entities - have any powers to legislate for the working conditions of the crews of foreign vessels. ¡NABO!

    The only corruption in the South Atlantic in emanating from Argentina viz.

    lets see you imbecile:
    the “government” of that colony or the government of england are responsibles for the crimes committed in “their” waters.
    most of all when it is clear that they do not fiscalize those vessels operating in “their” waters.

    it is their responsibility.
    that´s why they receive a fee for allowing them to fish in those waters.

    no doubts they are reciving a bribery too.

    you are too imbecile to understanding it, no??

    @8 cara de orto podrido

    Your reply is incomprehensible and nonsensical. There is no such thing as a “government of England”! And, furthermore, the Government of the United Kingdom has NO jurisdiction over the waters of the Falkland Islands as the islands have their own government managing their own affairs.

    ¡que boludo! ¡que nambo!

    Unless there has been a quantum shift in criminal culpability, according to all the legal standards I know. It is the person who is convicted who is liable for their own actions. Otherwise, according to your reasoning, the owner of the property that is burglarized is culpable.
