    Just a point about the differences between UK English and American English. In UK English the noun for licence is spelled with a “c” whereas the verb to license is spelled with an “s”. I often notice in articles related to defence that the Mercopress journalist spells defence (UK English) as defense (American English). Perhaps he/she should alter his spell check to the UK English version rather than the American English version when writing about matters relating to the Falkland Islands.

    interesting point, but I doubt if the squid will be bothered.

    “interest in licenses for the coming season is holding up and the process is likely to be oversubscribed,”

    This is brought about by TMBOA dictating to the argy boats to overfish the sea to destroy the squid on their way to the Falklands.

    Thankfully, all it did was to destroy argy squid stocks. Oh, the irony of it. :o)
