    Clearly a great start for Uruguay by the British investors and the plants' management.

    What a pity that the political children of the Broad Fraud are unable to match it.

    “No Money Pepe” was U$D 1,900 Million in the red at the latest accounting by the new administration. That's U$D 575 for every man woman and child in the country. In reality probably U$D 1,000 for each taxpayer.

    Many of the previous lot are still in positions of power including Astori the Finance Minister. Why didn't he do something about it when Pepe was pissing our taxes away on the stinking poor.

    Stinking poor is not untrue, you only have to stand behind these morons at the checkout to realise that.

    There is no excuse for not looking after yourself and your children.

    Fray Bentos - South Americas only contribution to the world. And, of course originally stewarded by the British.
