    Stop the entrance of dirty polluted fish from Chile, Norway, and the UK/EU. Far more polluted than Argentine Merluza.

    Nostril/Brarsehole - similar reason we had to ban the import of contaminated RG feedlot beef! Consumption of that stuff in RGland has frequently resulted in people growing extra organs, protuberances and extra large feet.

    @ TTT

    It won't affect you will it? I thought you lived on the two for one pizza deals. That's what you told us.

    You have been had by several of my impostors. Now if you want to be fooled go right ahead, or you can just believe me. Very simple choice really.

    I never said that. I did say 4 years ago I did not need money and I still insist that you don't need money. Once you do, you are a slave, no longer free. But if you make money while doing something enjoyable then by all means. That is where I am headed, and I have more work now in the last 3-4 months, that I enjoy, so soon I may be able to afford some beef and even fish by next year. So it is becoming my concern what all this imported stuff contains.

    And btw, there is no such thing is RG feedlot beef.

    You have just fallen out with Think. Criticising Norway. OMG ! Dissension in Troll land !

    You now claim to be an expert on fisheries. Have you ever seen the sea or a fish market ?

    We have missed your pointless and jingoistic videos.

    Do you know that your only aircraft carrier is due for the scrap heap and that there have been feelers made about buying HMS Ocean which is due for decommissioning.

    We have two large carriers about to come into service so don't need this one.

    How would you know Toby....?
    I've been known to poach the odd Salmon up the River Massan, I personally don't like Salmon so I always give it away to someone that does, I've heard nothing but praise about it...
    Does that look polluted to you...?

    AustrOllOpithecus claims “And btw, there is no such thing is RG feedlot beef” though the reality appears to have been different for many years.

    “Es un término inglés, de uso corriente en algunos países Iberoamericanos como Argentina , para designar la versión contemporánea de lo que antaño eran los corrales de engorde de ganado.... Aunque actualmente el feedlot se reserva para la etapa final de engorde del animal, dada su eficiencia productiva es probable que su uso se extienda a períodos cada vez más largos de su crianza.”

    Why, there is even a formal Argentine industry agency devoted to the practice

    Reuters 2008 “Argentine cattle move from Pampas to feedlots”

    NPR, 2009: “Argentine Cattle No Longer Just Home On The Range”

    Argentina media (The Argentina Independent “ The Hidden Costs of Feedlots”) : ”In 1991, the feedlot made its debut in Argentine territory, and despite the fact that the relation between E. coli infection and beef deriving from cattle enclosed in feedlot operations has been widely established, the feedlot continues to prosper in Argentina even today, largely as a result of nearsightedness on behalf of policy makers, and greed reflected in the beneficiaries of the feedlot system, primarily abattoirs and meat distribution plants. Not unexpectedly, Argentina has the world’s highest mortality rate of Uremic-Hemolytic Syndrome, a disease related to E. coli (strain 0157:H7) contamination....”

    Where would argies be without denial?

    Does doing something enjoyable mean he got a job trolling? Are you working for RT News Trollboy?

    Do tell us how you live without money. This would be extremely useful for a lot of people in Argentina right now, you shouldn't keep it to yourself.

    He lives with his mother. He used to tell us that when he made a little money he would buy two-for-one pizzas and eat one and save the other for breakfast. It is true he is very happy to have no money and seems to despise people that do. He also complains about the cost of shoes as he has very large feet.

    `'He also complains about the cost of shoes as he has very large feet.” Is that why he continuously puts his foot in it?

    Haha! He seems to have so many hang-ups for such a young person and why he chooses to share them on a message board is baffling. Perhaps it is like therapy to him.

    He wants attention so he posts on Mercopress.

    It's a sure way to get it too, as long as we keep reacting to him.

    Ignore the little cretin.

    You are, of course, right but in the past he offered the occasional interesting idea. I didn't necessarily agree but he did debate. Now he has been consumed by an irrational hatred of a place he has never been to all because one girl from the U.K. rejected him. It would be good to see him move on from it.

    To be fair to him it isn't just one girl; there is a whole chorus of anti-Argentine commenters on here saying how hopeless the country is all the time. I'm sure it would piss me off too if I was from Argentina. He just needs to find a more constructive way to deal with it.

    Except the anti-Argentine comments are not all from the British. Yet he manages to spew nonsense about the UK in every post.

    If I am honest all the anti-Argentine posts piss me off too though some of the worst offenders have buggered off at last. Calling them derogatory names without ever having been there or interacted with the people of Argentina is just pure ignorance. The same ignorance TTT displays about the British.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets annoyed by those comments. If you listened to some of the people on here you'd think it's the worst country in the world. And I agree TTT is just as bad the other way, and acts like all 'Anglos' are the same. At least there is only one of him.

    You both are open minded and fair persons. Makes me happy because you confirm the perceptions I've got from other British people that I have met in my life.

    Thanks, TF. This website attracts a lot of overly nationalistic types, and of course there are idiots in every country, but there are good people too. I could say the same about you, and it's also nice to see posters with different opinions on here; otherwise we might think everyone in Argentina agreed with Think and EM.

    Hmmm... farmed salmon? feedlot beef? ... both to be avoided at all times.

    Re Argentina in general ... I having been coming and going to RGland for the last 14 years and having spent about 2 years in and around BA trying 'to get stuff done' and dealing with government and private outfits .

    Sorry, but it is a totally disfunctional, frucked up country from top to bottom. A nation of thieves who keep on trying the same thing over and over and wonder when every ten years it all falls in a heap... again.

    Individual Argentines can be very nice and pleasant.. like people everywhere.. one cannot help but feel pity for them.
