    Looking like Billy Bob Thornton in that photo John.

    Sounds like another wise decision by our MLAs. It wasn't inline with Johns Recs in all regards but I can understand their rationale.

    Queue Marcos Mike's 10+ year old links to his own discredited articles about overfishing, oil chiefs running FC and guns under his bed.

    Brit Bob,

    Oh of course it is. I forgot to mention that. ...and what is it they say about our oil? Oh that's right, that's theirs also. ...oh and to lessen the impact when they realise they'll never win that argument: “there is no oil in commercial quantities in those waters around the islands.”

    Chuckle chuckle.

    Well anyway, Penguin News has been out long enough now that even Mercopress will have picked up on the issue that's getting everyone excited at the moment down here. It'll give the Malvinistas deadbeats something to play with over the weekend.

    Yes...Falkland Islanders. Keep having high hopes on that miraculous don,t have the infrastructure for it. If there is potential companies would have bounced on it by now. But just talk and every Islander expects to get a windfall of luck.
