These principles are likely to apply throughout the four year term of the current Legislative Assembly, though will be formally reviewed by the Assembly annually. Read full article

    Fishing in Falkland waters or Argentinian waters?

    By a ruling of the UN, Argentina will extend its maritime platform (Politica Argentina) ; New map of the maritime platform reaffirms the sovereignty of Malvinas with UN endorsement (ElCronista); Argentina enlarges its territory 35%, with a UN endorsement ...(La Capital).To add to this euphoric atmosphere the Argentine Foreign Minister stated, ''This is a historic opportunity for Argentina. We have taken a great step in the demarcation of the outer limit of our continental shelf; the most extensive boundary of Argentina and our border with humanity,'' Foreign Minister Susana Malcorra told La Nacion, which tomorrow will publicly announce the details of this resolution. (Susana Malcorra, quoted by Dinatale M, La Nacion, Argentina, 27 March 2016).

    At Golfcronie, our Pat is a US born Argentine? of Italian immigrants, He recently had to leave Argentina when his tourist visa ran out, yet he claims to be Argentine. He is now a devout Malvinsta well known in the Falklands forums on FB but living back in his native Italy.

    Golfcronie. don't be ridiculous anybody in the world who knows about the Falklands conflict knows that it's about British unrighteous abusive expansionism. All they've done now is made it official that they used settlers to achieve their goals. England will simply choke one day on its own greed.

    This is just a slight change from the well known Argentine mantra “the whole world knows”

    “anybody in the world who knows about the Falklands conflict knows ”

    Well Patrick, you keep showing us time and time again that you nothing about it !

    Patrick will simply choke one day on his own bile.

    By the way, do you have a real job ?

    PE. Expansionism ? You obviously do not know the meaning of the word. Argentina by harping on about the FALKLANDS is the country wanting more territory, get real pal.

    I'm worried about you. Did you forget to take your meds? Normally you rant with diatribes of around two thousand characters that are nearly intelligible...
    For nearly 100 years the British have been divesting territories throughout the world.

    People, don't give Patrick the time of day, he isn't even Argentine. He is an American that was living in Hawaii and is pretending to be Argentine. He recently tried to move to Argentina but was deported having failed to get a work permit. He has numerous convictions for drug use and related crimes and this has clearly addled his mind, that is why he rambles on like a madman

    The only reason he is on here is because he was banned from Facebook for making homophobic comments.

    How do I know this? He used to be an active member on some Falkland pages until he was banned for being homophobic, this is all public knowledge.

    Please ignore him. He's just a bitter Brit hating loner with no country or identity, desperately wanting attention

    You're a slanderous liar BrianFI. Or you're and idiot who's believed the lies others have spread who like nervous girls have spewed lies on facebook about me desperately trying to find ways of bringing me down OK?
    FACT: I've never ever once made a personal attack against any individuals about living homosexualy. I not only remember never having done it. But I could never state anything like that because I'm too clear about what I understand on the subject. I have yes, talked about it a lot, but it is you nervous silly dillies that fearfully and viciously have construed immediate distorted re emissions of what I would say. Simply because grossly disfigured slanderous blaming is the all time British favorite pastime. I've even been decent enough to offer with candor the fact that I myself have lived homosexuality for many years. I'm not “reborn” or “cured” or any of the stupid stuff this new ignorant on the subject society might laughingly say. I simply understand it now for what it is, and no longer pursue it. My honesty however didn't stop British idiots from trying to spread rumors about me being “a homophobe” (not even knowing what the term actually means) or “anti semitic” without ever having said anything against the Jewish people or their religion.

    ...Methinks Patrick doth protest too much...
    He's already shown the characteristics of a deranged loquacious homophobic anti-Anglo idiot. Brian makes sense.

    Lol, it's amusing how often cliches turn out to be true.

    Pat, there are other ways to be homophobic apart from personal attacks. Such as supporting regimes that murder people like you...

    I'm on the side of people who know homosexuality and have lived it, like few people are today. And listen to this: ... If Any. ... Si, este hombre... aunque no lo crea nadie y pocos entiendan porque lo digo.

    Sounds to me like you screwed your life up in some way and now you want to blame your own choices on other people.

    Just like how you try to blame Britain for Argentina's bad decision to start a war.

    I think you're assuming too much again. How do you believe I screwed up my life? Why do you think that what I explained is not sufficient for you, and there's more to it, that somehow you know about ? What would that be, what do you think is missing ??

    You obviously have a bee in your bonnet about this, since you keep bringing it up all the time. If you didn't have some kind of problem you wouldn't go on about it constantly. But you're in a minority; when you say “I'm on the side of...” you are not talking about any large group of people.

    So that's my guess, based on what I have seen of your attitude (which is always to find someone else to blame, preferably Britain).
