    “The goal of the international gathering was to discuss matters of common interest in order to present a unified front next December at the JMC in London”.

    international gathering?
    they mean intercolonial gathering.

    matters of common interest?
    they mean money laundering, smuggling and tax evasion.

    Sorry, but I think you are still dreaming - The islands aren't part of Argentina so don't need to discuss those intrinsic characteristics of Argentine politicians that you just mentioned.

    Are you totally stupid? Not even money launderers, smugglers and tax evaders could operate in the Falklands/Malvinas because you moronic Argentines have made it too difficult to get there!

    “the discussions covered a number of topics, including economic diversification, strengthening families, good governance, meeting global standards of financial accountability and environmental sustainability.”

    Aspirations that are way beyond Argentina's capabilities at present.

    Instead for Argentina read:

    “ money laundering, smuggling and tax evasion.”

    All attributes of your president who can't make a country of 40 million work properly.

    Credit where credit is due, at least you know your colonialist country is corrupt.

    Why have the BOTs missed some obvious topics. For instance, laying a ring of remote-controlled mines around any threatened OT. Remote-controlled in two way. First, switching magnetic and contact sensors on and off. Second, exploding mines on command. A ring of mines around the Falklands is obvious. Switch them on and off to permit legal vessels. But the better one would be the mines around Gibraltar. Imagine keeping them switched off until a Guardia Civil trespasses and tries to take “executive action”. Then switch them on and watch the GC boats explode and sink as they try to flee back to spain. Spanish waters, eh? Then drink them!

    imbeciles, pelotudos, and boludas:
    lets see point by point:
    “...and developing robust and effective infrastructure across all of the OTs”
    what these ignoramuses have to develop is a proper education system.
    they are the most ignorant people on earth

    “developing innovative healthcare and social services in the territories, including mental health services and the creation of an OT sports council”
    lol, not even a ct scanner.
    mental healthcare?
    build a big madhouse and intern all those isleteers, llanitos etc, especially isolda.
    they are useless to sports like an ojota.

    “continuing the fight against financial crime ”
    they are, basically, financial criminals.
    the best way to fight against financial crime is to send them all to jail for life.

    Dear me, Paulie, you do seem to have your knickers in a twist. Rest assured, you really do not know anything about life in the Falkland Islands.
    1. We have a very good education system here, many of our children go on to university, in the UK, and return to the Islands with things like MPhil., doctorates and degrees.
    2. We have a very good mental health programme.
    3. There is no illegal drugs problem here.
    4. Gun crime doesn't exist, neither does knife crime. Muggings don't happen and burglary is unheard of.
    5. We take part in the Small Islands Games, have a football team, take part in the Commonwealth Games, and recently played ice hockey against several teams in S. America (and won).
    6. We have a democratically elected system of government.
    7. We are financially healthy and no-one is skimming money from our budget.
    8. Inflation is virtually zero.
    9. We have a balanced budget and, heaven forfend!, even a budget surplus!
    10. We have a cemetary for the fallen of another country, maintained by us (although we don't actually think the dead should be “housed” here).
    11. We can critisize our government, in person and in the press, without worrying about the consequences (doors being kicked in and being killed by “government agents”).

    Is it because you're jealous, I wonder, that you get so het up about someone doing better than you? You could do with a bit of what you advocate for other yourself.

    Which classical music do you prefer, by the way?

    Toodle-pip, Paulie. See you later.

    @8. Considering your standard of education, it's not surprising that you're envious of people so far beyond you. How about “robust and effective infrastructure”? Or the argie method. Another pointless organisation, but with a different acronym.

    You should go for the mental health care. Someone will come and gently give you care. By smashing your face against a brick wall until you can see an image of your brain on the inside of your eyelids stuck shut by your congealed blood. Continuing with you biting through and then watching your tongue fall on the floor! Although you can swallow it if you like. Continuing until all your teeth are broken and just stab you. We can all happily watch you open your mouth and bleed to death.
    @9. It's because he's a gobby, mentally deficient, rabid, cretinous, latino asshole. Although “latino” includes all the other descriptions.
    @10. You have to remember that argieland doesn't believe in “team” sports. The medal table is quite enlightening. Men did better than women in running, jumping and throwing things. Women did better than men in boxing. Silvers in handball. Women did better than men in shooting. Make of that what you will. Pity there was no soccer. We could have found out what argie women were like at kicking balls! No doubt through long practice.

Tell UK to abide by UN resolutions, including C24 in the first place. Don't cherry pick. Of course not all OT are equal and the very picture of the meeting speaks for itself.

    Argentina has no culture, no international prowess, nothing to be proud of in their past, present or future, seen around the world as liars and thieves, never paying their debts and worst of all cowards and surrender monkeys with pitiful armed forces..

    Anyway, who are your favourite classical composers? Personally, I love Elgar, I even used to live where he did and can see where he got some of his inspiration. I am also a fan of Wagner, particularly his Ring Cycle; having also spent time in southern Germany, Bayern and the Rhein, I can see where a lot of his inspiration came from. I'm also a big fan of the Asgard legends and Norse mythology.
    And now I think it's time to clean my mind again, after reading some of your illiterate, degenerate xenophobic ravings.

Everything by Frank Zappa, although I wasn't a big fan of the Mothers; Free, Bad Co; 5FDP; Tool, Perfect Circle, Puscifer; 30 Seconds to Mars; Tyr; Sabaton; Lacuna Coil, Within Temptation; My Dying Bride, Pythia; A Pale Horse Named Death, Carcass, Pavement, Testament; Pink Floyd, Led Zep, Skynyrd.

    ”discrimination...discrimination against argentinians,“ - discrimination is a blanket term, covering all kinds of exclusion. I am not discriminating against Argentinians, as a whole. Like everybody else among the 7 billion people on this planet, there are certain types and groups of people I don't like. Some of them may be gay or transgender, but that isn't to say I dislike all gays and transgender people, some of my greatest friends happen to be that ”type“. It is not racist to dislike Argentinians. Unless, of course, you happen to be a different race to the ones you happen to be targeting. Some of my friends happen to be of a different race, so to dislike all of the people of that different race would, obviously, be racist. I have no religion, but the vast majority of my friends are religious in some way.
    My point is that to dislike people who share a view that is incorrect is not ”racist”. Neither is it intolerant; admirably demonstrated on this site, in the way we all still try to talk to you.
    And, I really hate to point this out to you, but I speak very good English. Not patois - it is my first language, learnt in English schools. Grammatically correct too. When you eventually meet me, you will suddenly realise just how wrong you are! Trust me on this!

    2. racism: as i have wisely said, the modern concept of the term racism is a lot broader.
    it is not only referred to races, but also to nationalities, religions, sub-races (in the technical concept of the term), etc.

    that´s why someone who hates the yids in general is considered racist, independently if he/ she refers to semites, sephardic, black, white, whatever.

    in your case, you hate argentinians.

    @44: Paulie: “the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.” = Racism
    “the unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people or things, especially on the grounds of race, age, or sex.” = Discrimination
    Which is why people think you are an idiot, Paulie.
    Xenophobia, on the other hand, “intense or irrational dislike or fear of people from other countries.”
    On the contrary, I do not hate Argentinians, I know quite a few and they are decent people. Mind you, they are completely different to you.
    You demonstrate, quite plainly, that you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. I've no idea how old you are, but you elicit all the experience, knowledge and understanding of a belligerent, uneducated teenager. You will, given time, possibly, develop.

    @45 Isolde: You are quite right, judging from his response below your comment! Bless his cotton socks.

    I enjoy sparring with Paulie. It warms the cockles of my heart to think that there are items like him allowed out in the streets and possibly even procreate. Imagine what his children will be like!!

    Paulie, heavy metal is just “rock” music. I doubt you have a goût raffiné, you don't get one of those from eating out of McD's! You need to broaden your horizons, matey.

    If I only hated Argentinians, I would be an incomplete racist. I doubt I will ever be able to match you, I'm far to discerning!

    it seems you are even more narrow minded than what i thought.
    and that is a lot.
    you come here with definitions from...wikipedia.
    again, the concept of racism is a lot broader.
    i know you are not too fond to read books, but try this one:
    Eduardo Bonilla-Silva
    The University of Michigan

    ”First, racism is defined
    as a set of ideas or beliefs. Second,
    those beliefs are regarded as having the potential
    to lead individuals to develop prejudice,
    defined as “negative attitudes towards
    an entire group of people” (Schaefer 1990:

    the key word is ”people“.
    not ”races”
    as you can see, it is not only referred to races, you dumbasshole.
    with your poor theory, the nazis would not be racist, because the focus of their hate was a religion.

    you are a waste of time.

    @48: According to the Oxford Dictionary of English - “the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.”

    One book does not a definition make. The NAZIs didn't appreciate black people, the Rom, Muslims, Jews, in fact they didn't really like anybody other than “Aryans”.
    Until you actually know me, please don't make assumptions based on nothing. Do you really have any idea how many books I read? Per month? Per year?
    From the same document, which I doubt you read, ”Schaefer (1990) provides a more concise definition of racism:
    “ a doctrine of racial supremacy, that one race is superior” .
    It follows that we should ask what we mean by “race” - OED “each of the major divisions of humankind, having distinct physical characteristics: people of all races, colours and creeds”.

    By the way: Rethinking Racism by Bonilla-Silva is not a book but a treatise of approximately 17 - 20 pages, a copy of which sits on my bookcase.

    Over to you, my xenophobic little friend.

    clearly you are another product of the pork stanley community school.
    otherwise, you cannot be so burro to not understand the difference between a definition of the...oxford dictionaries, made in 1900 and the new meanings of the concept of racism.

    and it is clear that you have never read a serious book in your life and you will never read the book i graciously suggested.

    so, here you have another, key quote:

    ”Races typically are identified by
    their phenotype, but (as we see later) the selection
    of certain human traits to designate a
    racial group is always socially rather than
    biologically based.”

    with each post, you sadly confirm my theory that you are just another dumbasshole of this 4th class site.

    @50 Think,
    l guess that we are all racist in one way or another.
    And all races are not equal at birth.
    But it is only knowledge or lack of, that defines this.
    Some races are superior in certain ways to other races.
    l would not even attempt to try to survive in somewhere like the Kalahari or Central Australia, for example.
    l acknowledge that the San & the Aborigines are far superior to me in being able to live in such places.
    And l would be superior to those people in other ways.
    lt has nothing to do with your colour, it is your learned experiences.
    People also feel comfortable with others of the same appearance.
    So if you congregate with people of the same language & appearance in another country--are you being racist?
    Before you start your bullshit, Think or paulcedron or Voice or whatever you call yourself now,
    l know what l am, l know how l think as regards foreign people.
    l treat everyone fairly, although are suspicious of some lingual groups & religions. And l don't have a problem with that.
    So if you want to call me racist, go right ahead.
    lt won't affect the way l think or act.
    And l won't lose any sleep over it.
    ps, your hatred of the British & Falkland lslanders can be considered “racist”.
    as could my dislike of malvinistas.

    @52 Isolde

    With the obvious tiny mind he continuously exhibits it is most unlikely that he can ever comprehend your posting. So he will most probably dismiss it entirely - his behaviour is becoming more and more predictable! The more and more he is brought to brook the more arrogant he becomes!

    (NB for paul cordon - The meaning of “brought to brook”? ”The OED defines the expression as “to bring to account, cause to show authority (for statements, etc.); to examine the evidence for (a statement, etc.), investigate”.)

    From the same document, which I doubt you read, ”Schaefer (1990) provides a more concise definition of racism:
    “ a doctrine of racial supremacy, that one race is superior” .

    of course, i have read all the books of richard t schaefer.
    that's why i suggested you to read it and to read the article of bonilla.
    clearly, you don't have the slightest clue of what they say.
    sad, sad, sad.

    first, he is talking about the classic definition of racism there.
    as 3/4 of the world knows, except you, all those concepts of races, sub-races, etc, are totally outdated.

    from a sociological and genetic point of view, races do not exist.

    read and learn, dear ignoramus
    “Race is a real cultural, political and economic concept in society, but it is not a biological concept, and that unfortunately is what many people wrongfully consider to be the essence of race in humans”

    as i told ya many times, this is a sociological issue, not a question of phenotypes or genotypes.

    A question for you - is xenophobia the same as racism?

    to put an end to this “discussion” let's see what the american association of physical anthropologists say about race:

    of course you are not going to read it or to understand it.
    so, in brief, what they say is that genetically speaking, race doesn't exist in humans.

    now, the funny thing is that racism, in fact, exists.
    you are a typical example of that, for instance when you say “ntelligent argentinian posters,” - oxymoron.”

    hope you can digest this valuable lesson.
    and if you can, go back to school, dear ignorant PeDo.

    “intelligent argentinian posters,” - oxymoron.” That seems to me to be a xenophobic remark NOT racism!

    “ Tell UK to abide by UN resolutions, including C24 in the first place. ”

    1/- The C24 do not issue binding UN resolutions.

    2/- The UK is completely at liberty to ignore anything the C24 says, as it's remit is to assist colonial peoples to independence.

    As the UK has done more to aid the self autonomy of it's BOTS it is doing the C24's job.

    The BOTs have no wish to become independent , so the UK is doing nothing wrong.

    The C24's so called resolutions concerning the Falklands, don't seek to decolonise them, but to hand them to another colonial power, i.e. Argentina.

    Because the C24 is corrupt, in that it is not seeking to decolonise the BOTs (which can only mean, under their remit , independence from the UK), then the UK is justified in ignoring anything they say.

    The C24's purpose is to enable colonies the right to Independence from colonial rulers, where those rulers are not permitting independence.

    Sovereignty issues are dealt with by the ICJ.

    Argentina going to the C24 is like going into a bakers to buy meat when they need to go into a butcher's shop. They need the ICJ.

    I hope that makes it clear to you.

    “Don't cherry pick.”

    Resolution 2065 mentioning 'Independence,the Islanders interests and taking account of the UN charter, was broken by Argentina by invading the Falklands.

    So it's OK for Argentina to break resolutions is it?

    Argentina ignored binding resolution 502 but according to you it's OK that Argentina broke the resolution?

    William Hague offered talks with concerning the Falklands, but Timmerman refused because shock, horror, some people that actually lived on the islands were there. That would be like the UK refusing to have talks with Argentines because they lived in Argentina.

    The UK has not refused to talk, so it is breaking no UN resolutions.

    @15 knarfw asked you to outline resolutions the UK is not abiding by-your failure to answer speaks volumes about your ability to cherry pick, and Argentina's invalid claim.

    We know all about racism. We hear it from you every day.

    'Ignorant Benny Hillbillies', 'genetic aberrations' etc.

    So wind your neck in.
