    Take note that in the real world, outside of Arg, economies are moving forward, not imploding on themselves.

    People are free to build for their future and not just hang onto the edge of the abyss.

    Have a nice day!

    I thought oil companies were scared of the powerful/less Argie courts?

    I genuinely thought Argentina was going to make the oil companies shit themselves and REALLY issue court proceedings-but another limp dicked, impotent jibber jabber [(c) Chris R some year or other], proclamation recently, followed precisely with...... NO ACTION.

    Now come on Argentina, at least grow some and do something to gain some credibility-after all according to Paulcedron doesn't the whole world and his dog support Argentina?

    At least try to provide some entertainment, and prove wrong most of the predictions on these posts that Argentina's threats to arrest oil workers will have NO effect whatsoever.

    And also, if everyone supports Argentina, why weren't Jeremy Corbin and George Galloway around to prevent me parading the Falkland flag around the Staffordshire countryside on Sunday?

    Where were the baying Argentine students throwing stones and burning tyres?

    A suggestion to Argentina, if you say something will happen, at least TRY and make it happen or don't bother making impotent predictions in the first place if they add to your pile of bullshit.

    I keep getting told there's no oil.

    So why do they keep drilling?

    Slowly but surely we just keep moving closer to realising our full potential. In the meantime the Argentine Government just keep making impotent threats that have no basis in law and that they are completely unable to implement.

    Is Chris Evans going to be banned from Argentina now?

    Chuckle chuckle.

    Given the dire circumstances of that well known success YPF (they wish) it seems the Falklands have more working drills at sea than YPF have on LAND!

    And the pitiful announcements they try to puff up to something they are not on remote areas of The Dead Cow which comprise of TOTAL volumes less than the Arabs produce in FOUR DAYS, giving a total of eight days production by the Arabs to see them dry.

    Don't you just love the argies? Ha, ha, ha.

    And that has anything relevant to this story, they are just poor immigrants wanting free handouts in such a benelovent country.
