    It would be lovely if they decide to ban any Argentine vessel entering their ports. Especially the UK. Certain cruise ships flying an ensign would have to change their plans, but in the end the real suffering would be Argentina.

    I am loving those shorts! The famous Bermuda Shorts.
    Great fun by all. And respectful to the local community.

    PS : Paulie, using 'gay' as an insult just proves how parochial and ignorant you are. In most modern countries civilised people don't do that anymore. In fact, in your beloved England, in is actually illegal to attack someone for the nature of their sexuality.
    You are so backward, I am surprised that you don't walk into walls.

    @2 cara de dos ortos podridos

    What an idiot you are? So the national dress of Argentina is NOT the “gaucho” uniform? Boludo!

    Argentine national dress for men is wearing a spandex tanga, skinny jeans, an open chest polyester shirt, sequined vinyl belt and stolen pointy shoes.

    @2. Hardly a valid comment from the biggest crooked state on the planet. Over US$7 billion isn't it? No doubt K and her cronies are still busy leeching money even in their final months. But, lower down, what other corruption? The bent mayors. The bent local politicians. The bent local officials. The bent police. And how may arrange or commit murders as well?

    But, eventually, argieland and its occupants will be brought to account. I do hope that I can stay alive long enough to watch the endless lines of argies being briefly “tried” for crimes against humanity. And then shot.

    Paul-carrion is so provincial and 'unworldly ' that he always makes me laugh at him. He thinks everyone in the world is as narrow-minded, inexperienced and corrupt as the people in his villa miseria.
    I wonder if he will ever get to experience the world beyond the portal of his local internet café?

    Any hoo.. Good to see this is the 25th meeting of the Red Ensign Group, is this what Hepatia has been alluding to?

    Paulcedron's eloquent use of speech and his superb manner of addressing his rivals is just about as illuminating as rat droppings...

    @9. I wonder if you understand linguistic equivalence?
    For instance, argie = shit. Argentine = shit. Argentinian - shit. Kirchner = botox shit. Kirchner also = thief. Cedron = arsehole, moron and cretin. Trot off and stick an appropriate digit up your arse. You know how much you love to suck on the result.

    Do try to remember how argie shitbags, in '82, liked to endear themselves to the indigenous population by shitting in the post office, in peoples' baths, their beds, on their furniture.

    Wonder who's going to forget?

    ” the Crown Dependencies (Isle of Man, Guernsey and Jersey) and the UK Overseas Territories (Anguilla, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Falkland Islands, Gibraltar, Montserrat, St Helena and the Turks & Caicos Islands)“

    these 3rd class colonies are built on dirty money.
    from corruption, slave trade, drug traffick, terrorism, you name the rest.
    not a surprise their capital city, london, is built on the same bullshite.

    ”London property boom built on dirty money”

    @15. But then, argieland built on dirt. Genocide for a start. Lies. Armed forces being cowards. Navy running.

    And so it will be if argieland tries again. Bit of a difference between 80 Royal Marines and a 1200 man garrison. Although the Royal Marines did well. Respects to you all. No air cover and 4 Eurofighter Typhoons with more on the way. No naval support, but now there is. Death to argies!

    Warning to immigration and customs officers in the Falkland Islands! Within the next two months please expect a visit from an individual of tiny stature smelling of human effluent demanding all manner of privileges - he should not be allowed entrance. He MAY carry an Argentine passport but I suspect that he may be a citizen of another country. His manner is such that no civilised society should welcome him.

    Moron Paul, the capital of the Falkland Islands is Stanley not Port Stanley, the clue is in the name! You profess to know it all but just like Manuel 'you know noothing'.

    1) no brains & happy without them.
    2) a really handy man, in a place where you don't need anyone.
    3) about as useful as an ash tray on a motorbike.
    4) or a hip pocket on a singlet(vest).
    5) started out stupid & just got progressively worse.
    l blame the Paco.

    How would Paul afford to leave Argentina?

    He definitely couldn't afford to travel to the Falklands.

    Maybe Uruguay, Paraguay or Bolivia. Not a developed country.

    “ about the best place to stay, to eat and to practice skiing...”

    Please allow me to assist you:

    Assuming you'll be arriving on the weekly LAN flight (Which, I might modestly mention has consistently been rated the best airline in Latin America), you'll arrive and go through immigration.

    You'll need to mention to the immigration official that you are a “special guest of SIS Tourist Adventures” and within moments your attentive welcoming team will whisk you away in a black Range Rover to the exclusive and very private SIS Ski Resort and Spa, an all inclusive luxury and exclusive facility managed by the SIS-Vauxhall Cross Group in London.

    There you'll encounter that all your meals will be carefully prepared and all the challenging activities by your thoughtful MI6 recreation team. I personally promise you that it will be the most unique experience of your life...
