    How do you like spending U$D500M in the UK on UK services and UK manufacturing and other UK supplies.

    Did you get that it can only be spent in the UK?

    Oh, how precious this is! LOL

    Brassarse. Do be sure to turn down US$500 million of British aid. Also everything from Italian ECA Sace and Austria’s Oesterreichische Kontrollbank (OeKB). Piss off and die.

    I talked to an employee of Petrobras a few minutes ago and he told me that the deal with the British bank would not be realized because of the many complaints of English and mostly Brazilians.

    With that England left 5,000 direct jobs.

    Businesses that would be made with England will be, from now on, directed to Germany.

    Thank you very much.

    @4 Brasileiro

    You talked to an employee of Petrobras did you? Who? The janitor?

    You do understand that when something is concluded it means that it has been signed, sealed and delivered, don't you?

    It's not like in your country Argentina where the politicians are always announcing one 'deal' after another only for them to fall through, causing great embarrassment.

    It appears that Petrobras wants to do business with the British. Just like the Brazilian government was very happy to buy British built patrol vessels.

    It must make you green with envy to know that, even though Brazil is currently have financial problems, it is still in a far better off place, economically, than Argentina is.

    Poor fake Brazilian.

    Brazil contracted for the fourth straight quarter, central bank data showed this week as Latin America's biggest economy plunges further into recession

    to be fair, brazil may well be in a better position lending of Argentina,
    then at least they can both share to same sinking boat together, as brothers...

    Briton, if you do not consider Argentineans why the Falklanders only comment on the news about Argentina?

    It gives the impression that you are lovers of Argentina.

    @4 BRasshole
    You can't avoid contradicting yourself, can you ?
    Who is the PB employee you just spoke to ? the President , A. Bendine ? or to Zé da Silva, the latrine cleaner ?

    Even if there is any truth in your (crazy) allegation that the 'UK biz is being directed to Germany“, how does that fit in with your plan to sever all connections with the evil 'West”, of which Germany is also part of ? Why are you so friggin' stupid ??

    @ Jack Amoeba Bosta
    The cleaning and sanitizing of Petrobras rooms is performed by outsourced labor.

    This means that you should only talk about what you know, Mr. Amoeba.

    @9 BRasshole (with shit for brains)

    And so who gives a shit if you clean PB lavatories for a living ??

    And since when are latrines called 'Petrobras rooms” ?? Well, I suppose it makes sense, as at Petrobras, seems everyone shits wherever and on whatever they want.... In the Board of Directors room, somebody did a lot of shit between 2003 and 2010. It's a shame that crap isn't worth US$ 50 a barrel, o'wise PB could sell it and pay off the US$ 130 billion debt.
