    Good riddance to him and glad he exercised his right to leave. Uruguay is a country of immigrants who in most cases never received any government help to make their way in their new country and integrated into society. They are Uruguayans first be they Scots, Armenians, Gallegos or “turcos”, the local name for Syrians, who retain links with the culture of their countries of origin and there is nothing wrong with that.

    ... there is nothing wrong with that at all ...

    ... As long as their “Counties of origin culture” doesn't clash as tweeds and a striped shirt with the laws, best interests and culture of their host country...

    I might pop into the Uruguayan consulate and see if they could facilitate a free trip to the Falklands.

    It had never occurred to me that they might be a free travel agent.

    In addition to the importing of these Muslim terrorists, 'No money Pepe' has a lot to answer for:
    1) Raging inflation emanating from his unilateral decision to raise fuel prices by 10% and then when process went up he complained about companies making excess profits.
    2) He needed this money because his money for the stinking poor turned out to be outside the 'budget'. I imagine he could get a fag packet big enough for the 1.4M stinking poor to register on.
    3) Major FU with Pluna the Flag Carrier Airline in a country of 3.286M people FFS.
    4) The cannabis fiasco that forces pharmacies to stock prescribed amounts and police the system of supply to legal users only. No wonder the health conscious pharmacies are pissed-off.
    5) And Pepe, who cannot understand English to the POTUS he should learn Jibber-jabber!

    Those are just the 'highlights'!
